Take this "Big Five" personality inventory and then post a comment on this post about it (see below for instructions about your comment.)
You can post your results by copying and pasting the HTML code at the bottom of the Big 5 results page into your comments. Write about your results and what you think about them. Was this test accurate or not. Ask someone who knows you what they think and write about their view as well. (you can see my comment about my Big 5 results) Leave your post as "anonymous" but sign it with your FIRST NAME and LAST INITIAL only. Remember, comments are moderated, so it will not show up right away.
These are Mr. Cantor's results... do you think they are accurate?

Hank talks Rorschach and the Freudiens ... what do you see here?
Speaking of Freud.... you can take a Freudian Personality Test here. (just hit "next" on the first page to start) My results are below... hmmm... I guess answering "I never want to grow up" a couple of times had a big effect on this very unscientific test.
Freudian Inventory Results
Oral (50%) you appear to have a good balance of independence and interdependence knowing when to accept help and when to do things on your own. Anal (46%) you appear to have a good balance of self control and spontaneity, order and chaos, variety and selectivity. Phallic (50%) you appear to have a good balance of sexual awareness and sexual composure. Latency (63%) you appear to be afraid or averse to present or future real world responsibilities, this will only make your inevitable transition more difficult, so learn to deal with the real world. Genital (63%) you appear to have a progressive and openminded outlook on life unbeholden to regressive forces like traditional authority and convention.
AP Study Notes.ORG has great very simple outlines of each chapter based on a different psych textbook than we use. It's a good idea to review these in your study process to review and see a slightly different perspective. https://www.apstudynotes.org/psychology/outlines/
You also have your AP Review Books, your Bernstein Study Guides, and the thousands of flashcards and hundreds of pages of notes you've created this year.
Mr. Jones, an AP Psych teacher from North Carolina started using Twitter a few years ago for AP Psych review.
"...if a student has a question about AP Psych, they can just type the question on Twitter and put this at the end of the tweet: #appsychreview
For those of you who are old hats at Twitter, you’ll recognize #appsychreview as a hashtag – it’s a way to group together tweets with a common theme. Anyone can then assist the student with their question – it could be a AP Psych teacher, a professor, or even a fellow AP Psych student. I’ve asked a few AP teachers to help out, but we would love your help. If you are familiar with Twitter and you would like to help out with answering questions, it’s probably easiest to set up a separate search for #appsychreview or just bookmark this link:https://twitter.com/#!/search/realtime/appsychreview ."
Keep in mind that sometimes it will be other students answering questions, so it's not necessarily as authoritative as a textbook or other edited resource. Then again, sometimes students can explain things best. The hashtag #APPsych is also full of interesting psych related tweets... you can use both hashtags to get a greater response to your AP Psych related tweets.
