Would you be interested to try these nail, lip, and eyebrow personality test? Please tell us your result?

Asked by Unofficial_Member (5094points) September 2nd, 2017

Note: This is not the thread to complain or degrade about the result, accuracy, and validity of the tests. We are here to take the tests and see how accurate they are in describing our personality.

It’s amazing how the shape of our body parts can tell a lot about us. It is even more ensuring that people have done research to prove the accuracy of such thing. I have found and tried these interesting tests:
Nail

Lip

Eyebrow (If you pluck/reshape your eyebrows then you need to remember and use their natural shape before being altered for this test)

Please kindly click the link above to take the tests and tell us the accuracy of each test in percentage (with your personal scoring system).

For example, myself:
– Nail: 100%
– Lip: 85%
– Eyebrow: 100%

I stopped at “nigerian scientist”.

Several questions:

1) who is the “us” and the “we” in this question?

2) is this commercial research? Will the results be used for commercial purposes?

3) Are you following protocols for human testing and confidentially?

4) Is the Fluther demographic really your primary goal?

I watched the nail video. It said I am leadership. Okay.

The lip one I stopped half way through. It was stupid.

The eyebrow: I have short eyebrows. I’m actually a combination of all the descriptions.

Of the first two videos I watched, one option in each seemed to be positive or complimentary, and all the others were insulting. I couldn’t see much truth to any of it.

@ragingloli That’s racism. It’s the result of the research that matter. Are you afraid that the tests will suprised you with their accuracy?

@elbanditoroso
1) We and us all from fluther, of course

2) No. This is just for fun and to broaden our horizon in discovering that people’ body parts can be used to determine their personality. I do not make any profit from any of your responses. Gosh! I write my question in formal way and this is what I got? People suspecting me of making business out of the question.

3) To be honest, your responses in this thread will pose just about the same risk as your other responses in fluther. You are being overly cautious.

4) Perhaps. At least it is for now. I have also introduced this to my friends out of online environment. I enjoy seeing them baffled by the result and accuracy of the tests.

@snowberry Thank you for your participation.

The world will be a better place if we can easily identify other people’ personality through their body parts. You’ll know what to expect and how to better react accordingly.

The world will be a better place if we can identify people’s personality by their features? What? That’s crazy talk. That would be prejudice pure and simple, bordering racism, if not outright racism. Assuming someone’s personality based on how they look? Think about it. Our goal should be to meet everyone as an individual.

Facial features, and even body type, are an integrated into part of our perception of race to some extent. Unless the quiz is only meant for “European white” people. A whole lot more Polish and German people have thin lips, a whole lot more black and Mediterranean people have fuller lips, just to name a few examples. That has nothing to do with what might be their personality, unless you want to go as far to say things like “anger” genes (and others) seem to swivel around near the fullness of lip genes on the strands of DNA.

Nails change depending on nutrition, age, health, nail biting habits, and more. Eyebrows change depending on thyroid, age, and how you wax or pluck them. Are you saying how the person like to shape their eyebrows shows their personality? Or, the natural shape of their eyebrows?

snowberry's avatar

^^ Exactly. And in every example of nails, lips, and eyebrows, the models were all white (not black or even Asian women! What’s up with that?

Unofficial_Member's avatar

@JLeslie That is a good point. I desire an easy and practical way (aren’t we?) to determine one’s personality. I see you have not taken any of it. Why not take at least one test and see how accurate it is in identifying your personality? Then it will be fair to voice your disagreement. We shouldn’t care too much about what support the hypothesis so long as the result is mostly accurate. It is accurate for me, though. I don’t understand why people need to be overly-cynical with the result.

@snowberry Variation of body parts shape exist even for people of the same race. Perhaps it is the matter of their preference to use white people as the models.

I haven’t taken the tests but I am wondering what role the test makers feel that
nurture plays in a person’s outcome. If you are raised in a certain environment,
you may end up differently. It all depends on your parenting, your education, your
opportunities.

I did watch the videos. The results didn’t match my “personality,” and they didn’t not match. It was just kind of a random hit or miss, as was the matching/not matching of the other options to my personality‚Ķ which is what you’d expect.

I think JLeslie hit the nail on the head with what’s conceptually wrong with those quizzes in particular, the way they try to line personality up with physical characteristics.

Further, there already is an easy, evolution-based way to determine someone’s at-the-moment disposition: their facial expressions and body language, their tone of voice and word choice, etc. You shouldn’t assume very much about a person based off one interaction, since we’re all a whole lot more than one interaction, “we’re all a constellation” or whatever the phrase is… but you can get the information you need for the moment.

Even personality tests like the Myers-Briggs, which wider audiences have believed to have some measure of credibility—at least in that the MBTI has been used in professional applications—have been shown to be not worth very much. (Here’s a quick, stylized video explaining why).

The video also mentions the “Forer Effect,” which is one of the reasons these personality tests can seem compelling, and probably worth your time to look up. According to Wikipedia the effect actually has a couple of different names, but I find Forer’s Experiment in particular to be an effective example.

Notice how many of the descriptions were actually fairly vague. Someone’s “creative” or “pragmatic” or “gets offended easily” or “want to be recognized” or “hates losing” or has a “quick temper but cools down quickly” or is “nurturing” or “emotional” or uses “common sense” or holds onto “traditional values,” or is a “strong person” who “solves problems on their own” or is “confident” or “compassionate” ‚Ķ none of these descriptions are particularly idiosyncratic. That is, none of these descriptions are particularly unique. We may not all feel or display these qualities in equal measure, but very few of us would say we have none of these, even if we don’t match up with any of the physical traits these quizzes happened to pair them with.

@Soubresaut Excellent response. I guess I’ll have to look more in to methods to determine other people’ personality. I must admit, though, that I tend to go for the easiest and most simple solution that can be applied in real life, hence the reason I picked and adored these body parts personality tests.

Soubresaut's avatar

Simple’s fine! Just make sure it’s backed with science. Find some reputable psychology/sociology sources if you’re wanting to know more about personality. (Just be warned that there is a lot of half-baked or distorting or downright false “pop psych” out there that can seem compelling. Look for studies whose results have been repeated—those are more credible, and the more they’ve been repeated, the more credible.)

I have read books set in the Victorian time period. Characters in those novels said things like “he had a weak chin,” (low character), etc. This is as inane.

I’m still getting over the fact that @MrGrimm’s star sign isn’t LEO.
