One Question Personality Test

Updated on April 23, 2012

One Question Personality Test

Would you like to know more about yourself and how you are perceived by others? If you don’t, you should. Why? Because each one of us may be two people: the person we think we are and the person other people think we are.

Wasn’t it Robert Burns, the famous Scottish poet, who said way back in the 1700s – no, although I’m older than dirt, he was not a personal acquaintance – ““O wad some power the giftie gie us, To see oursel's as ithers see us!”

Here is a very simple one-question personality test. All you have to do is answer one simple question. Are you up for it? Okay. This is the scenario:

You have your entire day tomorrow free of any obligation whatsoever. You don’t have to go to work. You don’t have to pick the kids up at school. You don’t have to walk the dog. You don't have to pick up your mother-in-law at the airport. (Just kidding). You don’t have any responsibilities whatsoever.

Maybe it's not the shirt. Maybe it's his personality.
Maybe it's not the shirt. Maybe it's his personality.

The Question: What would you like to do most tomorrow?

Below is a list of sixteen choices. Pick the one you would most like to do more than any other. Just one.

Don’t agonize over it. Just choose the one phrase that describes what you would like to do the most tomorrow. Write it down.

• • Organize a class reunion

• • Imagine how the world could be improved

• • Play charades

• • Have a conversation with a friend

• • Be president of a club

      Very insightful, witty, fun to read hub! Thank you for the research and personality tests and video! I have always scoffed at the idea of multi-tasking, and your article validates that multi-tasking is a myth at best, at worst a lie created by greedy bosses who wanted to hire one individual who would be willing to do the job of three__or more. Thus, the brutal practice of "downsizing." Thanks again!

      I chose "head for the country" because I thought a relaxing day in the tranquil beauty of the countryside might be just the ticket, but the personality description is of an action-man. I couldn't be less like that! I guess heading for the country may mean something else in the U.S.A., like hunting, fishing and chopping down trees:)

      Hi, Angelia. I apologize for taking so long to respond to your interesting comments, but somehow I was not notified until this week when HP changed its system of notifications. Mea culpa, m'dear.

      It was clever of you to adopt both choices and it makes complete sense because they are not mutually exclusive activities. You can do both successfully at the same time.

      I am a fan of short personality tests, too, and this one is one of my favorites. Also, the 'Simple Symbol Personality Test' is fun.

      Delighted that I made you grin with this and since you are a Gemini, you do indeed have special dispensation to blend the two choices. I have spoken!

      Hi, rdhkir. Nice to meet you. Delighted it was so accurate when you answered the one question. It does seem weird, I know, but this survey was crafted from the much more extensive Myers-Briggs instrument which I value. Thanks for visiting.

      Not to worry about your IQ, Ed. You are head and shoulders above the rest. And what did those teachers know. They were just jealous. Right? You stay happy, too, my friend.

      Dr BJ,

      I was TORN between a conversation with a friend and heading to the country. So, I surmised I could be persuasive enough to have both and take the friend to the country and have a conversation while we found something exciting to get into. (Grin!)

      Worked for me!

      I've decided in personality tests, the shorter the better, and in the short of it, HOPEFULLY they'll have accomodating choices. They make soooo much more sense than the ones that request to select the one that comes closest to fitting the test taker, and then don't offer anything that remotely FITS the test taker.

      Those drive me bats. This one made me grin.

      Since I'm a Gemini, I think it's my birth right that should allow me to have taken two and blended them into one. Hope that doesn't reflect that I'm greedy, because I'm usually willing to share. :)

      Hi, Dolores, nice to see you here, m'dear. So the beach or the art class fit you, too? That's cool. A preacher next? Why did you choose that profession? Just wonderin'.

      Hi, drbj - haha, I read some of the comments and had to laugh when I read CMHypno's - just what I was going to say. So, if I can't go to the beach, I'd be in an art class. And it does kind of fit. Maybe I'll be a preacher in my next incarnation.

      Being inquisitive and always looking for possibilities does describe a good writer, barbergirl28. Try the "Take the Pig Personality Test." :)

    • barbergirl28 profile image

      Stacy Harris 6 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      Actually, I change my mind... I just gave my husband the test and as I read through all the answers, I realized that I would rather play charades. The reason I probably overlooked it the first time is because I have never played charades... but I do like board games and family game nights. My husband was the Artisan - and that described him to a T - wasn't as much a good description of me. However, when I realized my simple mistake of overlooking things.... Charades fits me perfectly... lol

      Overall, great hub... even if I have to weigh everything over and over and over again. LOL Wait - isn't that like the Journalist!

      You would write 'all day long,'barbergirl? Then you are certainly in the right place on Hubpages. Nice to meet you.

      Thanks for the visit and the 'great hub.' I have always been fond of this one-question test because it is so often right on the money.

      You may be the Artisan and the Artist - they are similar in many ways.

    • barbergirl28 profile image

      Stacy Harris 6 years ago from Hemet, Ca

      Simply scrolling down the list, I choose Art to start off with not even finishing the list yet. Mainly because if I had no obligations and no interuptions, I would sit down and write all day long. But, after glancing and making a decision without thinking much... going with my gut... my actual decision (after looking at them all) was to leave the country. Mainly because if nothing was in my way - I would love to travel. My lifestyle makes that nearly impossible to get out of the country. It is my adventurous side coming out. Even though I don't like to be overly dangerous. I work myself up way too much! Great hub! Interesting comparison on how things can tell your personality!

      Mebbe, Nellieanna, but I can't remember what that word means! heh, heh.

      Thank you for giving me an opening for my favorite forgetful joke:

      Three senior ladies are talking. One says, "You know, I'm getting really forgetful. This morning, I was standing at the top of the stairs, and I couldn't remember whether I had just come up or was about to go down."

      The second one says, "You think that's bad? The other day, I was sitting on the edge of my bed, and I couldn't remember whether I was going to sleep or had just awakened."

      The third one smiles smugly. "Well, my memory is just as good as it's always been, knock on wood," she says as she raps on the table.

      Then with a startled look on her face, she calls out, "Who's there?"

      I don't like any of the choices. First, suspecting that might be the case, I figured out what I'd REALLY like to do with a total "Free Day". Then since none of the 16 choices fit, I read a couple that PARTIALLY fit--and yes, the descriptions partifally fit me as well.

      Okay, now to go check out Genghis Khan.

      Note: Mrs. J.B. recommended I actually read some of your stuff. Shame on her; I'm already about half hooked!

      Perhaps, amillar, you could organize a get-together (party) and ask your guests to offer suggestions on how the world could be improved. There is nothing wrong with selecting two choices. I have. (Journalist and Leader/Instructor).

      I still can't make up my mind whether to 'imagine how the World could be improved', or 'organise a party', so maybe I'll just sit and read a book about the Art o Decision Making. But I'm not sure about that, and I can't decide why - so maybe I won't do that either...
