Trust Test. A few weeks or so ago I presented you with a personality test. Now I am going to give you one that overall gives a measure of how trustworthy you are. Again, you can discuss how accurate you believe this test is and such.

Here are my results.

Your Trust Quotient: 5.5 (I assume this value is out of 10)

TRUST QUOTIENT SELF-DIAGNOSTIC TEST

Your Strengths & Opportunities for Improvement

Your Trust Quotient results reveal the following:

YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTH IS: INTIMACY

About Your Area of Strength
People feel safe around you, and share their inner thoughts with you. This is due to a mixture of traits, probably including:

People feel you are discreet.
People feel you are empathetic.
You risk sharing personal things about yourself.
You risk inviting personal sharing by others.
People take you into their confidence.
How You Can Leverage This Strength
Notice it. Be aware of it, and come to rely on it. Often people with high scores on intimacy have them because they are very careful with other people’s feelings, or are willing to take on the sharing of confidences that others would find risky.

Notice that you are good at this, and be willing to put yourself into situations requiring tact, dealing with sensitive issues, or interpersonal skills. Trust that you are good at this not because you take no risks, but because you know how to take them. Take more of them.

YOUR BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPROVEMENT: CREDIBILITY

About Your Area of Opportunity
Your biggest opportunity for improvement is increasing how much people believe what you say. This looks deceptively simple; however, many factors affect credibility.

You can work to be more logical and clear in your thinking and presentation.
You can improve your credentials.
You can communicate in ways that help people to relate to your message.
You can focus on applying your expertise, rather than talking about it.
Be truthful—and also speak more of the truth.
What You Can Do to Improve Your Credibility
Do not stretch the truth or over-reach your credentials.
Customize your message and make it relevant.
Review your messages with others.
Be open about your concerns to others.
Be open to others’ suggestions.
Take speaking programs to enhance your presence.
Be open about difficult situations with others.

Your Trust Quotient: 4.7

YOUR BIGGEST STRENGTH IS: CREDIBILITY

About Your Area of Strength
People tend to believe what you say. This is due to a mixture of traits, including:


People see you as logical and clear in your thinking and presentation.
You have strong credentials which people respect.
You communicate in a way that helps people relate to your message.
You have the ability to demonstrate your expertise, not just talk about it.
People feel that you speak not only the truth, but the whole truth.
How You Can Leverage This Strength
If your credibility strength is in the cognitive area—high IQ, analytical capabilities, “smart” as in “intellectual”—then work on the “softer” sides of credibility—truthfulness, being more open, sharing more truth.


Credibility isn’t just about credentials and mastery; it is also about persuasiveness. It can be affected by things like body language and eye contact, vocal tones and phrasings. It can also be affected by greater use of stories or metaphors, or by involving the client more specifically in examples, to increase the identification with the advice you are providing.

YOUR BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY FOR IMPROVEMENT: INTIMACY

About Your Area of Opportunity
Your area for improvement lies in helping people feel safe around you, including being willing to share inner thoughts with you. Improving your intimacy score can take several forms:


Helping people feel that you are discreet; that what they share is safe with you.
Increasing people’s sense of you as empathetic.
Being willing to risk sharing personal things about yourself.
Being willing to risk inviting others’ personal conversations about themselves.
Having people take you into their confidence.
What You Can Do to Improve on Intimacy
You can’t push intimacy, but you can make it welcome.
Avoid gossip.
Simply observe others, and ask about their feelings.
Don’t be afraid to comment on others’ feelings.
Comment on your own, but only when not obtrusive.
Respect confidential information.
If an email would embarrass you or someone else, don’t write it.
Talk more with your eyes, ears and body, and less with your mouth.
Treat silence as your friend.


This is actually very true; both reflect me. With the intimacy, there are very few people I will actually open up to. It isn't because I don't trust my other friends, it is just because I don't like to let people know about my feelings. I have always been like that and I always will.

All these questions are like "People tell me I'm..." People don't talk like that to me so I just had to put "sometimes" down for almost everything since I had to guess what I thought people would say.

I got a 2.9... whatever that means.

Your biggest strength is: Reliability

How You Can Leverage This Strength
Ironically, your strength lies in the fact that you don’t think of it as a “strength,” but simply as a way of relating to others. The fact that having low self-orientation makes you more trusted is an outcome—not a tactic. Simply notice that what you are doing—focusing on others’ goals, feelings, objectives, behaviors, treating them as ends, not means—and that behaving in this manner has the side effect of making things better for you as well. Then keep behaving in this other-focused manner.

Clarify milestones and deliverables.
Be one minute early—always.



This seems a little off to me. I think I'm more reliable than they peg me to be. I don't think I'm the most reliable person but I'm sure not THAT unreliable. Perhaps part of the problem with these results is from the fact that by surprise I was thinking something similar to a surprise party... :D

You can’t push intimacy, but you can make it welcome.
Avoid gossip.
Simply observe others, and ask about their feelings.
Don’t be afraid to comment on others’ feelings.
Comment on your own, but only when not obtrusive.
Respect confidential information.
If an email would embarrass you or someone else, don’t write it.
Talk more with your eyes, ears and body, and less with your mouth.
Treat silence as your friend.

Lol I don't think I'm really reliable rly :P but I'm definitely not going to intimize or whatever with a person. Nooooooo way
