i am not cool at all

so i took this personality test online. i am having serious doubts about the validity of this test. maybe i'll do a construct validity study of one and correlate my scores on it with my scores on the 16pf. the 16pf is judgmental and i love it. it told me i was cold and calculating and possibly psychotic. this test told me i was 43% mystical. yeah okay.

you know what i don't even know what these numbers mean. does this mean i'm more needing to be dominant than 90% of people? because i seriously doubt they normed this test. i also seriously doubt i am 10% religious.

'i seriously doubt they normed this test.' do you like what a geek i am for tests?

the lovely people at also provided me with a snapshot of my personality in case i already didn't know what i was like:

messy, disorganized, social, tough, outgoing, rarely worries, self revealing, open, risk taker, likes the unknown, likes large parties, makes friends easily, likes to stand out, likes to make fun of people, reckless, optimistic, positive, strong, does not like to be alone, ambivalent about chaos, abstract, impractical, not good at saving money, fearless, trusting, thrill seeker, not rule conscious, enjoys leadership, strange, loves food, abstract, rarely irritated, anti-authority, attracted to the counter culture

i don't know why it thinks i don't like to be alone. too bad there wasn't a question like 'i'm going to die alone and love it' and i would have been like 'hell yes motherfuckers' and then it wouldn't have been so confused. also it thinks i'm materialistic because i told it i could not be happy making less money than i do. too bad it didn't ask me if i make negative 20k.

how come this snapshot does not say anything about what a fucking genius i am?

the amazing thing though is that this test knows i love food. there weren't even any questions about food. also that i like making fun of people. how the fuck did it know that?
oh god now i'm getting hard thinking about doing principle components analysis on this test. where is my pocket protector.
