Their result for The Buddhist Personality Type Test ...

Angry

You scored 24 % greed, 61 % anger, 10 % fear, and 12 % confusion!

You are a very angry person. Metta meditation http://www.wildmind.org/meditation/metta/index.html might be the best practice for you: cultivating lovingkindness towards all beings will help you reduce your tendency to be aggressive or judgemental. Aversive types, whether Fearful or Angry, are said to make the fastest progress in meditation because they understand that the world isn't satisfactory--so don't be too hard on yourself. The upside of Aversion is Wisdom--you do see the world as it is, and you just need to bring things into balance by not focussing so much on the negative stuff. As with all the personality types, remember that there's nothing here to take personally. Tendencies to Greed, Aversion, and Delusion are just that: tendencies. They're learned responses that can (with wisdom and persistence) be unlearned.
