Riddle's personality quiz features two scoring calculation modes.

Your personality quiz can either be a 'projective test' or a 'self-report inventory'.

Scoring is based on a subtle analysis of all of the Riddle taker's responses:

  • Overall results (e.g. 'You're a collaborative manager!')
  • Attributes (e.g. Responsibility = 65%, Decisiveness = 48%)

Assign points (weighting)

personality quiz assign points

For every answer to a question, you assign a weight or score to the possible personlity results and attributes from 0-20. The more points an answer gives to a result or attribute, the higher the weight, and the greater the chance the user will get that outcome:

  • 0: no association
  • 1-7: weak association
  • 8-14: medium association
  • 15-20: strong association

Our system adds up all the points for all of the responses and then gives the user a personality as well as a set of attributes.

  1. Click on a single choice block.
  2. Click on EDIT SCORING.
  3. Use the up and down arrows to adjust the points.

Max points possible for each result

Each result or attribute is calculated independently. Points scored for that result are divided by the maximum possible points for that result to give you a percentage score. The results percentages will not add up to 100%. It's also possible for Riddle takers to get results with fewer points.
