- The Real (Fun) Personality Test -
Are you an evil overlord, an egghead, a conman, or something entirely different?

These days it seems that there are hundreds upon hundreds of personality tests out on the Internet. Well, now NerdTests.com is making one, thereby adding another personality test to the 'net, but with a splash of humor.

The hours of dedicated research (roughly one or two) by the team (of one person), has provided the following delightful test. Seemingly, people can be placed into 16 different personalities bins--a combination of
(I)ntroverts / (E)xtraverts, (S)ensing / i(N)tuition, (T)hinking / (F)eeling, and (P)erceiving / (J)udging--
as many of you probably already know. So, take the test, and learn what your true* personality is.

Just like many of the tests on this site, you will receive an award graphic so that you can show others how much of a nerd you are, with the additional ability to customize the graphic with your own picture!

Have fun and share this test with others!

Special thanks to Franklin @ Xero for allowing the use of his personality descriptions at the conclusion of this test.
