With FlexiQuiz you can easily build your own personality test to learn more about your colleagues, friends and family. 

There are several ways to create a personality test depending on what you and the participant are aiming to identify.  In this guide, we'll show you how to build a personality quiz by asking participants a series of questions that can evaluate their behaviors and identify a more dominant personality trait.  Participants can be shown their result, with a brief explanation.

These are some examples of things you could find out about someone's personality using this type of test; 

  • leader of follower
  • romance level
  • creative or logical thinker
  • how emotional is someone
  • sweet or savory tastes
  • does someone prefer a night in or a night out
  • in fact, the possibilities are endless


This guide will show you how to create a pre-employment personality test.


How to set-up a fun personality test

This is how to set up a personality test with FlexiQuiz.

  • Create your questions based on the behavior you are trying to measure
  • Add some answer options and score the options based on the dominance of the behavior
    • In our example test we've given each option a score of 1 to 4 points.  The option that shows the strongest leadership quality gets the most points 
    • The higher the total score, the greater the strength of that personality trait
  • You also have the option to add several features, helping encourage participants to give an accurate answer.  Such as;
    • Add a time limit so people can't over think an answer
    • Randomize questions and answers 
    • Ensure people take the quiz only once
  • At the end of the quiz participants behaviors are segmented based on their overall score.  In our test, we created following bands based on these scores;
    • Less than 25% = strong follower traits
    • 26% to 49% = quite strong follower but some leadership qualities
    • 50% to 74% = strong leadership qualities
    • 75% and over = very strong leadership qualities.  However, could they be too strong without always considering the bigger picture?
  • You can share the score with a brief explanation of what this means to the participant.  Paid plan members can also redirect participants to another URL for further information or insights
