In the past, I remember having experienced taking several different personality surveys when I was taking a psychology course in high school, in addition to taking this same exact survey in Professor Zinger’s class during spring quarter. Although I took it twice, I enjoy taking personality surveys because I get to learn more about myself and think about questions I haven’t had the chance to consider before. But overall, I thought this survey was very useful and easy to complete. It was also very easy to follow, understand, and didn’t take long to get through. In reference to the survey, I scored 33 for neuroticism, which is considered being high in neuroticism.
