Personality Testing

Personality is defined in Webster?s as ?The pattern of collective character, behavioral, temperamental, emotional, and mental traits of a person.? The construct in which I chose to do my test critique on was Personality. The three test which I selected all were personality tests that tested people ranging form ninth grade up to adults. Within all of these tests each test had a particular design to help those wanting to make a career-related assessment with their personality.
Personality tests interest me because I have grown up around an aunt who administers personality tests, and I have been given quite a few of them. When researching this construct I wanted to be able to relate to the topic, and personality tests greatly interest me. I feel as if they can predict a lot about a person and how they normally interact with others, and how a person deals with things on a daily basis.
In the three personality tests that I examined I found two of them to be very useful, but the other not so useful. The first test in which I examined was the called the Gordon Personal Profile-Inventory (Revised). Creating eight
