Male, age 21 to 30. "Yes, it is" (accurate)
Computer output: Non-sanguine PA or PA− type with low-moderate S score of 35. Low-moderate temperament T, extroversion E and aggression A scores. Additional note: "Consider also sanguine NP or NPA- type with social avoidance or depression."
The test is unusual in that the result "non-sanguine PA type" is overridden by the algorithm: "Consider also sanguine NP or NPA- type with social avoidance or depression" (because of relatively high correlation coefficients for NP type). Thus, the test result indicates that the more likely diagnosis is "sanguine NP type with high PA score".
Our experience is that sanguine individuals who have high PA scores on the test often report issues with social avoidance or depression.
With the test coming from a Punctilious habitancy, the NP diagnosis is all the more likely. Although this is the German version of the test, all of the different language versions have the same questions and are scored by the same algorithm.
Does such an NP individual actually exhibit behavior resembling a non-sanguine PA type? We have indeed noted previously that some aloof NP types can resemble PA types, so we believe that the answer may well be "yes". We have noted in the past that unusual aspects of the NPA personality test often mirror the reality of individuals' behavior.
