p1DR4 : Test intéressant qui change de l'ordinaire mais contradictoire à première vue : le test dit "haute sociabilité" pour un score mais "retrait social" pour un autre score, c'est assez étrange. Sans compter le score d'extraversion moyen qui peut aussi s'assimiler à de la sociabilité. A mon avis ça serait mieux si vous mettiez des liens sur la page du test qui renseignent sur la signification des scores.
Male, age 21 to 30. Myopia, severe. “An interesting test, different from the ordinary but contradictory at first glance: the test indicates "high sociability" for one score but "social withdrawal" for another score, which is rather strange. Not to mention the average extraversion score, which can also relate to sociability. In my opinion, it would be better if you put links on the test page which provide information on the meaning of the scores.”
Computer output: Sanguine N, or NA− Passive aggressive type, or −N Detached type with moderately high S score of 55 and a low F score. High temperament T but low aggression A score. Moderate extroversion E score. High sanguinity/narcissism N score. High detachment D score.
Comment: Basically, the test indicates a sanguine, non-perfectionist type, most consistent with an N type with elevated S score (or possibly NA− type). The A− trait of inhibited aggression (passive aggression) is not too common in France, but does exist. However, the elevated detachment D score steers one more in the direction of “−N Detached type” in an individual who was formerly (in adolescence) an N type.
As one can imagine, a “−N Detached type” who was formerly an N type (or an N −A Resigned type) can have contradictory facets in his or her personality structure, so it should not be surprising that the various scores of the test sometimes show apparent contradiction.
The high temperament T score, low aggression A score, moderate extroversion E score and high sanguinity N score, in the context of an elevated S score, indicate an individual who has low aggression but is nevertheless socially active in society.
The N score reflects “how closely the test answers correlate with those of an N type”. The high N score can indicate potentially “overt narcissism or high sociability”. However, in this case, the high N score is overshadowed by the high detachment D score, which indicates that the former potential of “overt narcissism or high sociability” is not realized. That is, despite being engaged in social interaction, the “resigned’ individual has become wary of –- and avoids -- complicated social or intimate interactions.
We have noted in the past that on the NPA test, Detached or Resigned subjects tend to answer many of the test questions as if they were still in adolescence, i.e., before adopting a life style of detachment.
Yes, we agree that the scores need to be explained better on the web pages.
