Their result for The Four Trait Personality Test ...

IAIS

You scored 72% Introversion, 89% Abstractness, 22% Sociability, and 83% Stability!

This test was intended to measure four independent traits:
  • Introversion/Extraversion
  • Abstractness/Concreteness
  • Sociability/Asociability
  • Emotional Stability/Emotional Volatility

The results you are given are percentages. A high percentage (50% and above) means you scored highly in that category and 50% and below counts as scoring lowly. The part of the text below that applies to you has been highlighted red!

Introversion/Extraversion

A high score in the Introversion category means you are the sort of person who gets drained after too much interaction with people and you need some time alone quite a lot. You tend to be fairly quiet and reserved, tending not to open up so easily unless it is around people you know closely. You probably have fewer close friends rather than many not-so-close friends. Being an introvert means too much sensory stimulation can overwhelm you so you prefer to limit it when you can. Very strong introverts can sometimes run the trouble of becoming completely solitary. Although this might not seem like such a bad thing, especially to a strong introvert, it can mean you lose perspective on life.

On the other hand, a low score in the Introversion category, an extravert, means you are someone who is energized by interaction with others. Sensory stimulation charges you up and you don't like being alone for extended periods of times. Although you might not necessarily reveal your deepest, most private thoughts, you do tend to be a lot more open and expressive than the average introvert and probably have a wide circle of friends. Very strong extraverts run the risk of wearing themselves out and losing their sense of identity by being stimulated by others too long instead of reflecting upon themselves.

Abstractness/Concreteness

A high score in the Abstractness category suggests you are the sort of person who likes to, as the name suggests, think abstractly as opposed to practically or concretely. Theoretical and conceptual ideas are of great interest to you and you probably enjoy thinking about hypotheticals, philosophy, or other such abstract subjects. The practical, pragmatic side of life to you is not of interest and consequently, you probably don't pay much attention to it. Of course, this has both its advantages and disadvantages. Being overly abstract however means you can lose touch with the practical world and become one of those intellectuals who knows everything about philosophy but nothing about how to do the laundry.

On the other hand, a low score on the Abstractness dichotomy implies you don't place too much value in the overly abstract or theoretical side of life and prefer to pay more attention to what is actually there around you. Chances are that you're a lot more matter-of-fact than the high scorers in this category or simply just don't care much for the conceptual. Those who are concrete are much more likely to be mechanics, engineers or other such practical careers because the abstract side of life is not particularly appealing or fulfiling. Being too contrete on the other hand could mean you lose sight of possibilities and underlying explanations for things, afterall many people agree there is more to life than just what is at present.

Sociability/Asociability

Scoring highly in the Sociability category means you are more of a group person and prefer being in a community of some sort, whether it be around friends or some other kind of group. You prefer to belong somewhere and be in a group with shared values and ideals and can be affected negatively when you feel rejected. You probably are quite an accomodating person but be careful not to lose your sense of identity to the group.

A low score in this category implies you are a more asocial person who doesn't defer to communual values or group. Note that asocial is not the same as antisocial. The latter is more about rebelling against social conventions and rules whereas the former is about simply not caring or being apathetic to them. Scoring lowly in this category suggests you don't have a particularly strong drive to belong anywhere in terms of people. Being overly asocial however means you can be very selfish at times.

Emotional Stability/Emotional Volatility

A high score in the Stability category means you are not prone to extremes of emotion. You probably feel quite neutral or indifferent most of the time and it takes quite a lot to get you upset or depressed, but quite a lot to make you happy as well. You probably handle stressful situations calmly and coolly but others may see you as a bit flat and emotionless, which can be true at times especially if you scored very highly. What this trait can not measure however is if you are 'stable' but have repressed emotions subconsciously or whether you truly are a generally neutral person.

On the other hand, a low score suggests you are much more prone to feeling the extremes of emotion. You can feel many different moods quite easily, which obviously has its ups and downs. On one side, you can feel exceptionally happy and ecstatic if the situation is right but you can also become very depressed too. Nobody could ever accuse you of being emotionless. Being subject to emotion always has its positives and negatives.
