RIASEC personality assesment

Postby Icewedge » Sat Feb 18, 2012 7:01 am UTC

So, while surfing Wikipedia I just discovered another personality test kind of like the Myers-Briggs in that it groups people into types (although with a slightly different method).

It is moderately interesting. My type was Investigative-Artistic-Entrepreneurial.

Post your primary types!

Here is the test from WikiP: http://personality-testing.info/tests/RIASEC.php

Received Conventional Artistic Investigative. Odd note:
You dominat type is CONVENTIONAL. Conventional people like rules and regulations and emphasize self-control.

You subdominat type is ARTISTIC. Artistic people are usually creative, open, inventive, original, perceptive, sensitive, independent and emotional. They do not like structure and rules, like tasks involving people or physical skills, and are more likely to express their emotions than others.

You minor type is INVESTIGATIVE. Investigative people like to think and observe rather than act, to organize and understand information rather than to persuade. They tend to prefer individual rather than people oriented activities.

Added the bold and underline for emphasis. So conflicted. Also, "you dominat".

Oh, god, every time I've taken it (was popular to foist it on us in college) I get some mix of those too. It was exactly as helpful in suggesting careers as it sounds. XD "Conventional... Artistic... there's nothing listed here. Well. Fuck. :/"

(it is primarily a career-goal-oriented sort of test rather than a holistic personality thing, that's definitely how it was always framed to us anyway)

I think my results may have underplayed my investigative leanings seeing as all the science-y questions were about various types of biology (and a couple of geography ones IIRC) whereas I am decidedly a theoretical physicist at heart.

Anyway, despite that:

You dominat type is INVESTIGATIVE. Investigative people like to think and observe rather than act, to organize and understand information rather than to persuade. They tend to prefer individual rather than people oriented activities. They like to work with DATA.


You subdominat type is ARTISTIC. Artistic people are usually creative, open, inventive, original, perceptive, sensitive, independent and emotional. They do not like structure and rules, like tasks involving people or physical skills, and are more likely to express their emotions than others. They like to think, organize and understand artistic and cultural areas. They like to work with IDEAS and THINGS.


You minor type is SOCIAL. Social people seem to satisfy their needs in teaching or helping situations. They are different than R and I Types because they are drawn more to seek close relationships with other people and are less apt to want to be really intellectual or physical. They like to work with PEOPLE.


Underlined sections are very off. Most of the text in all the types posted so far is stuff which anyone could read and think applies to them (particularly as it allows for contradictory statements in the dominant and subdominant types) so I think that this test is even less meaningful than any of the others (which aren't particularly meaningful either).

Just for comparison, I'm also a Myers-Briggs INTJ

You minor type is REAISTIC. Realistic people are usually assertive and competitive, and are interested in activities requiring motor coordination, skill and strength. People with a realistic orientation usually prefer to work a problem through by doing something, rather than talking about it, or sitting and thinking about it. They like concrete approaches to problem solving, rather than abstract theory. They tend to be interested in scientific or mechanical rather than cultural and aesthetic areas. They like to work with THINGS.


Seems accurate.

Deva, we are so similar. Investigative is a duh for me as I am an ISTJ (the Inspector). The artistic comes from my love of music, however, I'm not all that good at it, so I may have taken the test wrong. I like structure, but I don't like rules, so I'm conflicted on the conventional one. More than anything I want a plan, a path to follow, but that doesn't mean I want to be constrained. I guess that's where the artistic/conventional can work together to create me :lol:

Possibly to make things broadly applicable so that you can read into it what you want.

I came out SRA. However, I answered dislike to most questions because, frankly, neither operating a calculator nor using a computer to generate bills sounds all that interesting nor does working in a biology lab or running a grinder at a machine shop. Now, if it was a question about writing programs or working in a physics lab or building things on my own time I would have answered very differently.

I'm an INTP and come down fairly strongly on some of those traits. At one job, the higher ups decided to have some sort of team building exercise around personality traits. We all took the test before the lab; the instructor knew our results but we didn't. So he mixed us up in to various teams to show us how different personalities worked together. For our last assignment, he separated us into four groups with the strongest of (I think) NTs and strongest SJs in their own groups. The task was to plan a trip. The SJ group planned a trip across Canada, including what kind of vehicle they'd take, what features it would have, how far they'd travel, and where they'd stop. My groups planning was "beach, ok, where's a good beach. I hear Fiji's nice. Ok, we're going to Fiji". That was the extent of our planning.

IAC. Seems fairly accurate. I suppose my being more investigative than artistic explains why in the writing of my book I'm doing more research and analysis of planned character and organizational setting interactions than actual writing. And that I'm conventional explains why I'm trying to make it as realistic as possible, even going so far as to assign Myers-Briggs personality types to the characters and simulate the industry and economy underlying a fantasy setting. My artistic side is screaming in pain all the while I'm doing this, but I can't seem to help myself.

The question design seems really poor. Aside from the fact that whoever wrote them clearly thought the only disciplines in science are "medicine" and "marine zoology", does anyone get excited about using a calculator or data-entry tasks like typing receipts into a computer? Is it just that they were written twenty years ago when being able to print information from a computer database was regarded as some kind of dark magick which only the mysterious techwizards could perform?

Answered neutrally or negatively to approximately ninety percent of the questions. Picked a positive response to using a calculator. Sounded delightful compared to working on an offshore oil-drilling rig, offering unqualified and potentially harmful assistance to people in need, and Biology.

Compares data entry to writing. Would dislike transcribing one book's words into another. Becomes fun with the ability to build a story. Finds data entry dull. Enjoys the analysis after the data entry. May predict something interesting with that shopping receipt data, such as predicting pregnancy and due dates based upon purchases. And produce unrelated graphs like this (hopefully with a better error rate):

Sounds about right, minor quibbles here and there. There are contradictions between the three, but aren't most people an interesting little bundle of paradox and hypocrisy anyway? My Meyers-Briggs is ENFP.

I got IAS like Black Dynamite and drash.
Seems to fit well: a post-graduate scientist who went slightly mental due to not enough artistic things (languages, dance, music, art) in my life and got a huge amount of joy out of tutoring, chatting to customers and staff at my part-time supermarket job, or knowing I'd helped someone out or somehow brightened their day. Kind of reassuring that I've not actually gone too far wrong with my life decisions so far either, I just need to keep things in balance!

Hey, funny coincidence. I'm also a sciency sort who went slightly mental and needs to be around people for a decent chunk of every day to be happy. In my case, the 'going mental' involved leaving academia for a year and a half to work in a used bookstore, starting a game publishing company, and then going in to the geosciences instead of my previous engineering. So I'm way behind on grad school. :)

EAI

I think it probably should have been EIA though. When they asked about writing and stuff like that, I always took it to mean writing about things that I was investigating or researching. That's what I do as my job and I really enjoy it. I also love just writing in general, but I'm not so great with the creative side of things. I'm better at persuasion, argumentation, making a case based on data I've collected, that kind of thing.

Also I have a really hard time taking the test site seriously when they can't be bothered to make sure dominant is spelled correctly.

SAI.

I think it's rather unfair for me. It's showing 'social' because it asked about volunteer work, helping the elderly and kids, which is stuff I enjoy doing not for the social part, but because I feel useful doing it. It also asks about laying bricks, which I'd love to do, but only because I like to learn how to build stuff, not because I want to do that for a living.

Since most everyone here is of the INTP/INTJ class, I'm surprised to see so much spread this time around...

Fairly accurate for me I think. I'm an artist but also tend to be quiet and organize things so I can understand them. I don't particularly like the dominant, sub-dominant, and minor classification though. I think it's a bit more of a grey area.

Also, the spelling. XD
