Overall Experience I’ve always thought of personality tests to be extremely boring, but that’s not the same case with SAPA Personality Test as I found it to be very engaging and not boring. The overall test has a total of 250 questions which came from a wide range of topics. Some questions were related to personality, but some were more like an I.Q test questions such as puzzles, etc (SAPA Project, n.d.). Many questions in the test have the scale answer grid consisting of options such as, very inaccurate, moderately inaccurate, slightly inaccurate, slightly accurate, moderately accurate, very accurate, but for some questions there were the wrong and right answers provides, and I just have to make the best guess by using my mind (SAPA Project, n.d.). One part that confuses me about scale answer grid is that slightly accurate and slightly inaccurate has the same meaning in my viewpoint, so that is the point where I was not too sure what to pick as my answer. In overall test, I tried to be as honest as I could be about my answers despite the questions where it asks me to solve the puzzles. I made the best guess for the puzzles part since it was too much time consuming, and I really don’t like to spend so much time on puzzles. For the rest of the questions, I gave honest answers mostly because I knew that my answers will remain private, and no one will know it so there’s no reason for me to be mendacious. Besides that, there are some areas in the personality test that needs to improve,

PERSONALITY TEST such as scale answer grid as it gives so many options which creates a little distraction. It could be better and less distracting if the options are never, sometimes, and always. Test Accuracy Every time we take a test related to anything, it’s very important to check the accuracy of the test which depends on the length of the test (Willie, 2015). Tests which are longer are generally more accurate as compared to tests which are shorter (Patil, 2017). While I was taking my personality test, I thought of it as a never-ending test as there was no way I could know how many questions does the overall test have. Although it was engaging, it was time consuming too. But after finishing my test and receiving the test results, I understood that there were so many questions on the test just to pull out a good data and give an accurate results of my personality. There were a total of 250 questions on the test, and I answered all of them as honestly as possible just to make sure that the results that come out of it are accurate (SAPA Project, n.d.). Since the length limitation of this paper is 2-3 pages, it is hard for me to go over all the results I got from SPI-27 and SPI-5. So, I will be going to discuss the test results which I found very surprising and interesting. As the results of my SPI-27 traits, I scored high in Charisma (60), Humor (55), Sociability (67), but scored low in conformity (36) which is very accurate to me (SAPA Project, n.d.). My sense of humor is really good, and I’ve made use of both humor and charm to make friends from different areas which makes me social as well.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
