personality test

personality tests throw me and i
find myself imitating myself
picking the answers i think i would pick;
at least the version of me that ive painted in my head, that the world sees, thats a caricature of a few personality traits

i dont feel anything or think anything as i tick the boxes
i think in third person
what would she do

im not sure who she is 

and when the personality test announces to me who i am
i decide of course thats who she is
thats who she always was
and i store the new knowledge in a character file in my head

dont think too much
about who i am in first person

because who i am in first person
feels like maybe
maybe nobody

and maybe everyone thinks in third person
fills out personality tests in a trance
gets confused by the mirror
reads their words back so 
so detached

maybe we all need a better personality test.

    Yes! I've taken one of those tests, and get a good result in all, but in the back of my head I'm like, did I choose the 'right' one? To answer your message box, not crazy, or if you are you're not alone XD

    I understand you. I try to be very honest with personality tests, and get honest results, but I feel so pressured into choosing the 'ideal' answer.

    The thing with anything is, once you know what it's for, it's human nature to adjust.

    I get this. Taking personality tests is always a weird experience.
