Psychological tests aren’t magic; however, they are fun tools for assessing and evaluating our character traits on the magical journey of self-exploration. With so many personality tests on the net, at best they are fun but far from accurate. Selecting just ten online tests that are both fun to do and accurate in personality assessment still meant a lot of research and was a time consuming process. But here are the results. Have fun!
Emotional Intelligence Test
Do you think you can tell the difference between fear and surprise? You might be surprised at how difficult it is to read other people’s facial expressions, a skill that’s important measure of compassion and empathy. You can try a facial recognition quiz developed by a team of psychologists at the University of California, Berkeley’s Greater Good Science Center.
If your score is low, don’t read into it too much — while the quiz is a good indication of your ability to read the facial expressions of others, it’s not the only measure of emotional intelligence. Things like self-awareness, emotional regulation, and social skills also come into play, according to psychologist Daniel Goleman.
Award-winning personality test developed by Felicitas Heyne, a well-known psychologist and book-author. It takes only 5 minutes to complete and gives you an overview of your personality, career and relationships.

The 5 Love Languages
Based on the book by Gary Chapman, The Five Love Languages: How to Express Heartfelt Commitment to Your Mate, the test outlines five ways to express and experience love that Chapman calls “love languages”: gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service, and physical touch.
Most of us grow up learning the language of our parents, which becomes our native tongue. Later we may learn additional languages, but usually with much more effort. In the area of love, it’s similar. Your emotional love language and that of your spouse may be as different as Mandarin from English – no matter how hard you try to express love in English, if your spouse only understands Mandarin, you’ll never understand how to love each other.
Seldom do a husband and wife have the same primary love language. We tend to speak our primary love language and become confused when our spouse doesn’t understand what we’re communicating. Once you identify and learn to speak your spouse’s primary love language, you’ll have discovered the key to a long-lasting, loving marriage.
The Color Quiz
This test is based upon fundamentals in color psychology, and is in part derived from the work of Dr. Max LÃ»scher, who has devoted his life to the study of how color affects behavior.
Musical Visual Intelligence
AMVI (Associative Musical Visual Intelligence) is a logic test that attempts to measure one’s ability to correlate musical phrases with abstract shapes and symbols. Created by Jake Mandell, MD, music and neuro-imaging researcher, the test is purposefully made very hard, so even trained musicians rarely score above 90% correct. However, no musical training is required to take the test.
Spiritual Belief System Selector Quiz
More simply put, this quiz could be titled “Which religion are you?” A highly enjoyable and insightful, this quiz will reveal what your personal spiritual inclinations are.
