I haven’t laughed this hard watching a YouTube video in a long time.

This doesn’t technically qualify as a game review…I think.

I’ve been eyeballing this game for a while, as I have a bit of a history with the Zoo Tycoon series…I have the complete original [which wont play on a modern system]…and about a year ago, I purchased the most recent installment of the Zoo Tycoon series.

To be honest, it feels way too structured…in that kind of “we sold out to the casual gamer trend” way…I’m glad I only spent $20 on it.

I still need to spend some quality time with it, but I don’t know if I’m ever really going to be able to get into it deep…It just feels so different from where the series began…and not necessarily in ways that I like.

Planet Zoo, on the other hand…this looks like it’s really open to your whims.

I’ll pick this up when it goes on sale…on Steam, likely.

01) Can We Guess Your Education Level By Your Biblical Knowledge?

“Despite the fact that the main religion in the United States is Christianity, most people don’t actually know much about the Bible. Whether or not you believe The Bible is literal, one cannot understate its significance to our culture. This famous book compilation has stories present in three of the world’s major religions: Christianity, Judaism, and Islam. For many, it’s the direct Word of God! And one of the best things about the Bible is the rich stories that were told. Everyone should have some basic awareness of what these stories are, and why the Bible means so much to so many people all around the globe.

So in this educational quiz about the Bible, we asked questions about some of the obvious choices, like Abraham and Jesus and Mary. However, we also had a few questions about things you might not recall. Do you know who Lydia in the New Testament is? You should! The great thing about this quiz is that it’s fun, educational, and helps you be aware of the things in the Bible you may have forgotten. If you grew up going to Sunday School and church, this quiz should be easy-peasy… right? Learning stories from the Bible might have been a part of your daily life! So, without further ado, here is our Biblical figures quiz. Hopefully you haven’t forgotten them all! Do you? Prove it… and maybe we can guess your education level on top of it.”

Your Score: 89%

PhD Knowledge!

You’re clearly a Bible scholar… you’ve got to have a PhD! Very impressive!”

Yes…I only took this once.

I knew most of the answers…where I had to guess, I went with the most familiar name…

…A few of these questions stumped me…and I missed about half a dozen of them.

In reality, my knowledge isn’t quite “PhD” level…but it’s like I’ve said many times before…

…I grew up in the church…private christian school, and all…I’ve forgotten more about the bible, than most people will ever know about the bible.

Personality Style Test…


….

Date: December 20, 2019

01) Personality Style Test

“This 105-question Personality Style Test will allow you to obtain your scores on all of the 15 personality styles. The personality styles represent a dynamic and more fluid aspect of the personality than the more structural properties measured by the Jung Type Test or the Big Five Test.

In taking the test it is normal for well-functioning individuals to feel as if several of the items apply to them. However, for optimum results, DO NOT click ‘Agree’ to a question unless it has been a consistent theme in your life. If you are unsure whether a given statement applies to you, select ‘Disagree.’

The “Personality Style Test” is the property of IDR Labs International but pays homage to the works of Theodore Millon, Seth Grossman, Aaron T. Beck, Arthur Freeman, and Nancy McWilliams.

While this test can help you gauge the extent of your scores on the various scales associated with the 15 personality styles, it is important to note that test scores do not necessarily translate into real-world assessments, as conducted by certified medical personnel with the respondent physically present and based on an extensive review of the respondent’s personal and family history, among other things.

As such, please note that the information provided by this website provides psychological information for educational purposes only. The information is provided “as-is” and should not be construed to constitute professional services or warranties of any kind. The publisher is not engaged in rendering legal, medical, financial, or any other type of professional services. If expert assistance is required, seek the services of a professional elsewhere.

The “Personality Style Test”© is the property of IDR Labs International. For more information, please consult our Terms of Service.

Why Use This Test?

1. Free. This free online test is designed to comprehensively measure your personality style on 15 different scales and is delivered to you free of charge.

2. Comprehensive. This free online 105-question personality style test will help the respondent make sense of a wide theoretical framework, dating all the way back to Sigmund Freud and his associates. The century-old tradition of scholarship on the personality styles contains some contradictions, but this test straightens them out in order to deliver an overview of the field as a whole.

3. Made by professionals. The authors of this test are certified in the use of different personality tests and have worked professionally with typology and personality testing.

4. Clinically oriented. A common criticism of the personality descriptions yielded by Jung Type Tests like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and similar instruments is that their type descriptions are too positive. The feedback delivered by this instrument is designed to counteract that tendency, delivering a clear picture of the pathologies and problem areas that the respondent’s personality is liable to be susceptible to.”

“Your personality style is:
Schizoid

Your test scores suggest that your personality style entails: A defect in your ability to form social relationships and an under-responsiveness to all sorts of stimuli. You exhibit an intrinsic emotional “flatness” where the highs don’t get too high and the lows don’t get too low. Emotions like joy, anger, and sadness do not move you as much as they move other people. Your natural state appears to be one where you have “retired” a bit into yourself, which is one source of the calmness that characterizes your normal state. Unlike what might be expected, your passivity and lack of vitality is not a form of self-protection, but simply seems to be your natural state.”

Oh…

…Oh dear!…

…Dear, dear me…

LOL!

I’ll have you all know, that Schizoids are the coolest!

These are all negative traits…so, you cant really take this test and come out with a result that makes you look sane.

I am a hermit of sorts…so, that’s what’s really showing up here.

I don’t get the narcissistic thing, though…I’m no narcissist…I just have a lot of humor in me…much of it self deprecating…and I ham it up [sometimes way, way up], when I come online…write, and what not.

Antisocial?…in terms of being around people, sure…But it’s not a nasty form of antisocial…In fact, it’s a rather harmless form.

Compulsive?…Yeah, that’s probably true.

Negativistic?…I don’t even know what to say to that?…Would it be more proof, if I scream “NO!”?…Not sure about this one…I fancy myself an optimist…in the broader picture.

I am avoidant…yes…guilty…

Depressive?…I’ve had a lot of depression in my lifetime…Not sure if that’s what this means, though.

Sure…I am kind of dependent…but I think most people who would have traveled my path would also be.

Schizotypal…I was doing a bit of search engin surfing on this…They claim this has a link with schizophrenia.

Well…wasn’t that a jolly bit of fun?!
