A bit different from your average "personality quiz", I took these tests from psych-research.com. If you want to take them too, the links are below, and they take about 5-10 minutes each.

"What's Your Personality?" Quiz/Survey
http://www.psych-research.com/s/edmunds/



Altruism: medium
Your score for the altruism value provides an indication of how highly you prioritize the welfare and needs of others above your own.

You have scored in the mid-range on this measure, suggesting that you can sometimes be less empathetic and cooperative than other people you know, but you still do often put the needs of others before your own. For example, you may occasionally find yourself speaking harshly at someone close to you without thinking of their feelings, but you will likely soon realise they feel hurt and try to make amends. While you are less likely than others to give up your free time to volunteer in the local community, you still feel for those less fortunate and likely donate money to charities.

Status: medium
Your score for the Status trait provides an indication as to whether you are traditional and image-conscious, or more laid-back.

Scoring in the medium range on this trait ostensibly demonstrates that you are quite similar to most people in terms of the importance of social standing on your everyday life. While you do have some respect for traditions, etiquettes or rules, you do not adhere strictly to them; you simply appreciate their value for meeting certain goals. While you do not fastidiously or vainly attend to your appearance all the time, image is still somewhat important to you. Material goods such as designer clothes and flashy cars bring you some joy but you are nonetheless relatively practical with your money. You are probably "on the fence" with regard to your political views.

Unconventionality: high
Your score on Unconventionality reflects the degree to which you are original in your ideas, thoughts and actions.

Looking now at the Unconventionality trait, your score is relatively higher than others. This ostensibly means that you are quite a creative thinker; you love to "color outside the lines" and produce surprising ideas and do eccentric things. You find abstract thought to be extremely appealing and engaging, and you thus like to escape the confines of practical puzzles with concrete solutions. You tend to live in messy environments, and this mirrors your brain, where disparate thoughts are allowed to touch to produce new, exciting ideas. Standing out from the crowd is not something you fear; in fact, you probably seek it.

Emotional Intelligence & Job Engagement Quiz/Survey
http://www.psych-research.com/s/sleep/

Emotional Intelligence

Your EI score is: average

58%

Comparing it to those of other people, your EI score suggests that The Trait Emotional Intelligence Questionnaire assesses your ability to understand and manage your own and other peoples emotions, and your score on this dimensions is average [58%].

Your score indicates that you are fairly perceptive of your own and others emotions, and you are capable of altering these emotions on occasion. Your consideration in emotional issues and sensitivity to others' needs means that people will generally see you as a personable and approachable person. However, there may be times where you overlook or misinterpret others' emotional signals, and this may result in people viewing you as somewhat disagreeable. You are generally aware of the impact of your actions on others, and may tailor your behavior in line with other peoples needs. However, there are occasions where you may be unaware of interpersonal cues, and unintentionally hurt others' feelings. Thus, while others will generally feel that you value them as individuals, there will be times where they will regard you as imperceptive and even insensitive.

Apart from understanding others, you have a fairly good sense of self-awareness with regards to your emotions and feelings. You can, for instance, generally distinguish between feelings of sadness and feelings of anger. However, at times this difference will be illusive. This means that while you are generally able to manage your own emotions at times you may become expressive and possibly experience mood swings.

Job Engagement

Among the tests you completed was the Utrecht Engagement Scale (Schaufeli, Bakker, & Salanova, 2006), which is one of the most widely used measures of employee engagement and a great indicator of how you, in comparison to other people, enjoy your work. The main aspect of your profile this scale assesses is whether and to what degree you are connected, psychologically and physically, to your career or job. More specifically, the scale measures three distinctive aspects or dimensions of engagement, namely:

Vigor: 28%
VIGOR: This scale gives you an indicator of the degree to which your job is energising. Are you energised by your career, organisation and job role? Do you look forward to going to work every day? Do you feel excited and pushed by the challenges? Do you feel confident that you can cope with different work problems? The higher the scores on this dimension, the more conclusive and clear are the YES that answer all these questions. Your score on this scale suggests your Vigor levels are low.

Dedication: 50%
DEDICATION: This scale provides a measure of how dedicated and motivated you are about your job. That is, high scores suggest that your work, career, or job role provides you with a meaningful sense of direction; that what you do is fulfilling and rewarding, both psychologically and spiritually. The higher your score on this scale, the more your job or career inspires you; the lower the scores, the more alienated and pointless your job will be. Your score on this scale suggests your Dedication levels are average.

Absorption: 61%
ABSORPTION: This scale indicates how focused you are on your job and work-related tasks. The higher the score, the more you loose notion and sense of time, the more time flies when you are at work (as if you were having fun!). In fact, high absorption levels enable you to find a sense of "flow" where you reach optimal levels of performance and you produce creative and innovative ideas. The highest levels of absorption are found in artists and creative professions, the lowest in boring administrative or low qualified and low skilled jobs. Your score on this scale suggests your Absorption levels are average
