TELL ME MY TYPE
I had been test on this site and I got the result below:

STRESS PERSONALITY PROFILE
Physical Fred or Phyllis ™ 97.54
Logical Lewis or Lisa ™ 32.93
Overworked Oivers or Olivias ™ 23.3
Outdoor Otto or Olive ™ 4.17


NOTE: The above scores are percentiles, and are shown for the purpose of allowing you to see exactly how strongly your winning personality type was. If your winning personality type beat the runner up by at least 15 points, this is a fairly strong win. Anything less than 15 points means that you are a DUAL personality and need to read carefully the descriptions and statistics for BOTH your winning type and the runner up.

WHAT IS A "STRESS PERSONALITY"?
We did extensive statistical studies to differentiate people according to both the types of stress they are prone to experience, and the manner in which they are most effectively relieved of their stress. A stress personality therefore describes both the types of stress one is most vulnerable to, and the most appropriate interventions for stress reduction.

No one fits any one type perfectly. It's possible for someone to have feelings and thoughts which cut across several personalities. (In fact, if you look at the main profiles page for your stress personality, you'll see a set of percentile scores associated with each type for your profile). In reality, you'll never find a pure "Overworked Olivia" or "Physical Fred." This is a simplified model which helps us figure out what we most need to work on in order to achieve peace of mind. Please know that we understand people aren't really that simple. Your personality is the one that describes your primary set of feelings and thoughts about stress, the one with whom you most identify. You will probably not feel completely identified with any.

The personalities contain some exaggerations of the features being illustrated. We've done this to make them easy to recognize and identify with. They are much like the characters we meet in fables and children's stories. While we all know they don't exist in reality, there are important lessons to learn by examining those which most nearly approximate us.

Shown below are the description, explanation, and strategy tips for the personality most closely related to your profile. After reading it over, you may wish to review some of the other personality types which are high on your profile above, as they too may offer some useful insights into having a more prosperous, peaceful life.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Most people report to us that while this page (the 'Main Stress Personality' page) is entertaining and provides some general, interesting insights, the more valuable information is found on the 'Detailed Findings' page where they can see more specifics about each element in their profile. (Because this page aims to cluster people into one of four broad categories, some people feel it doesn't apply to them as much as the individual profile scores do.




PHYSICAL FREDS ™ & PHYSICAL PHYLLIS's™
(Requires Physical Activity To Reduce Stress)

"Move, move, move that body!"
The 'Physical Fred or Physical Phyllis' stress personality type is usually a creative woman (often with daughters at home) who responds very well to virtually all types of physical interventions for stress relief. This includes, most importantly exercise (aerobics, yoga, and strength training), but also things like progressive muscle relaxation, massage, or 'cuddling' (with a cat when a loved one is not available!).

The Physical Fred/Phyllis is usually aware of health issues, and feels some relief from drinking bottled water, taking vitamins, and further educating themselves about physical care. (They are a little vulnerable to the 'fat free cookie' craze à sometimes overindulging in fat free treats loaded with sugar, which actually increases their stress level).

In sharp contrast to the Logical Lewis/Lisa stress personality type, the Physical Fred/Phyllis doesn't respond so well to approaches to stress management that rely on trying to change one's thinking ('cognitive approaches'). Positive thinking training, acceptance training, assertiveness training, and the like are mostly wasted on the Physical Fred/Phyllis. They are better off dedicating additional time to their exercise routine, learning more about how to take care of themselves physically, or spending more time with their pets.

The last technique which seems to help the Physical Fred/Phyllis is working with their dreams. However, the dreams need to be seen as a source of entertainment, and the sharing of them a source of catharsis. In other words, they don't necessarily search for the 'meaning of a dream' in order to relieve stress. Rather, they seek to find some enjoyment in the experience of writing it down or sharing it with another person. Kind of like a piece of fine artwork - better to be experienced than to be analyzed.



DREAM PERSONALITY PROFILE
Dream For Fun™ 70.8
Dream Spirit™ 59
Practical Dreamer™ 30.21
Dream Lover™ 12.55
Dream Doubter™ 7.15




WHAT IS A "DREAM PERSONALITY"?
A dream personality is a description of the predominant set of emotions and thoughts one has about dreams. No one fits any one type perfectly. It's possible for someone to have feelings and thoughts which cut across several personalities. (In fact, if you look at the main profiles page for your money personality, you'll see a set of percentile scores associated with each type for your profile). In reality, you'll never find a pure "Dream Lover" or "Dream Doubter." This is a simplified model which helps us figure out what we most need to work on in order to make the most of our dreams. Please know that we understand people aren't really that simple. Your personality is the one that describes your primary set of feelings and thoughts about dreams, the one with whom you most identify. You will probably not feel completely identified with any.

The personalities contain some exaggerations of the features being illustrated. We've done this to make them easy to recognize and identify with. They are much like the characters we meet in fables and children's stories. While we all know they don't exist in reality, there are important lessons to learn by examining those which most nearly approximate us.

Shown below are the description, explanation, and strategy tips for the personality most closely related to your profile. After reading it over, you may wish to review some of the other personality types which are high on your profile above, as they too may offer some useful insights into having a more prosperous, peaceful life.




DREAM FOR FUN™
The Dream for Fun is someone who believes that dreams are a fun, unusual, and exciting experience. While they do believe that dreams have meaning and relevance to their lives, they look to their dreams more like most Americans look to the movies -- as a temporary escape from their ordinary lives into a world filled with intrigue, drama, romance, humor, adventure, etc.

Dream for Funs are less apt to ask "what does this dream mean" (although they do want to know) than to say to themselves "that dream was really cool -- I will really enjoy reflecting on it and holding it in my mind for a while". They also enjoy sharing their dreams with their friends and listening to their friend's dreams as a kind of social activity.

Statements which a Dream for Fun might most agree with include "I really like it when my friends share their dreams with me and I try to get them to do so", "The stranger my dream is, the more compelled I feel to tell people about it", or "I've got to laugh at some of the things that I dream, … if you have a minute I'll tell you, you won't believe it!"

In addition to finding dreams a source of entertainment, Dream for Funs sometimes use their dreams themselves (not the sharing or interpreting of dreams) as a source of pleasure. At these times they are less interested in sharing their dreams than in actually revisiting their dreams, and in creating more and more pleasurable experiences within them.

Dream for Funs also believe that dreams can be a source of creative inspiration - providing source material for art, music, poetry, stories, or other expressive endeavors. Finally, many Dream for Funs believe that dreams can be a spiritual experience - a manner in which they can become more in tune with the meaning of their life, their feelings about g_d or their religious beliefs.

Most Dream for Funs enjoy keeping a dream diary and organizing their dream thoughts because this preserves the dreams beyond the limits of their short term memory, and allows them to enjoy their dreams over and over again. (It also engages them in improving their organizational abilities, which provide benefits beyond dream entertainment/pleasure).
