An Immersion experience – Testing, testing and more testing

The following series of tests are meant to be fun – well, maybe more self-revealing than just plain fun. After you have taken the test, please pick one or two you feel reasonably or somewhat accurate and use it’s descriptors to create a clever way to introduce yourself in class tomorrow.

The test links below are all self report tests. Please remember that as you take these tests, they may be only as accurate as you are honest in your answering the questions they pose. Answer from the gut, and do not overanalyze the questions.

After you have completed the following, rate them according to their accuracy on your rating record sheet.
