At this time yes, that was a serious estimate; however, it may end up being much shorter. Additionally, I'll offer a shorter test (approx 25 questions). Finally, I'm planning on hosting others' socionics tests if they want me to.

Okee dokee. 8-)

By any chance, why shouldn't others want that? They can refer to this site and post the link wherever they want ... and if there's someone who has an own site as well he could post the link (like "Socionics test That's you" --> from [insert] site).
I think it's a good idea 'cos it bundles all the tests that are out there everywhere and everyone can choose ... and even compare if they want to.

A lot of people aren't 100% sure of one answer over the other, so the sliders gives them an opportunity to convey their relative confidence in their answer.

I do like the sliders 'cos none of the options that are given fit 100% (at least as for my part), sometimes it's a narrow decision, sometimes I just had to choose the lesser evil. A simple Yes/No option would force me "to be" either this or that even though I knew this is not me and thus the whole thingy wouldn't be really conclusive, but perhaps the tendency already tells enough. Maybe yes, maybe not. No idea how this test evaluates a 45 vs 55 % decision, though ...

Subtypes will display improperly until you (or anyone else) types the person. This is just a database error that will be fixed with time.
Additionally, intertype relationships are also not being displayed correctly; this should be fixed soon as well.

If anyone cares to provide input on the following changes before I decide to make them, please do so.

Potential Changes:

Extended Socionics Test
-It is very likely I will either remove the VI portion of this test or make it optional for the test taker. The reason for this is that the VI portion is not very helpful in determining a person's sociotype. I'm continuing to analyze the data.

Famous People
-Adding the ability for users to add famous people to the site, type famous people, and provide reasons for their conclusions.
-Allow users to configure what types for famous people are displayed on the site--i.e., they can choose to use the aggregate of all the typings or just one user's conclusions (if this makes any sense).

Intertype Relationship Calculator
-Currently working on a simple intertype relationship calculator that will allow the user to input types and subtypes and get their intertype relationship.
-The results will also include a breakdown of each type's Model A and show which functions have a positive position in the relationship and which functions have a negative position.
A very basic version of this calculator can be found here.

Statistics
-Planning on adding a statistics page that will give a detailed breakdown of test result data (e.g., distribution of types, gender variation, etc.).
-The statistics page may also include some of the VI related data I have.

Thanks, I can't see anything wrong with it right now, but I was doing some modifications to it yesterday, so maybe try it again.
