Tell Me Who I Am: The Ever-Lasting Pull of Personality Tests

May 12, 2021 at 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm CEST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

In this Interintellect salon, Nastasia Griffioen will lead an exploration of personality tests, and why we just can’t seem to get enough of them.

What kind of cat are you? What type of clown are you attracted to? Are you a gryphon or a mermaid? Which Game of Thrones character are you? Although this probably isn’t what a great Greek thinker had in mind when he wrote his famous “γνῶθι σεαυτόν” (“gnothi seauton”, translated as “know thyself”), personality tests somehow never cease to lose their charm. Over the years, hundreds of such tests have been made by scientists and fandom enthusiasts alike. I wonder, which one is your favourite?

In this salon, we will explore some of the mysterious charms of these tests: what makes them so appealing? Do their outcomes ever feel wrong? And if not, how come? What is it about these results that makes them so one-size-fits-all-y? More importantly, are there dangers to these prophecy-like descriptions? Join us for a salon about this phenomenon that is so personal and yet so universal. We might even do a test together… Are you ready to tell us who you are?
