The Truth about the Personality Test • No personality test can claim infallibility. Your personality type is not how you score on a test. Even if the test gets it right, which it may, it is up to you to confirm whether it is right. Any personality test is nothing but a diagnostic tool, and it is up you to use it responsibly. No personality test is a substitute for looking into yourself and finding out who you are.
