    BRACE (Behavioral Relativity And Cognitive Economics) Character Profile

    The BRACE (Behavioral Relativity And Cognitive Economics) Character Profile analysis can be taken online, and its way more 'official' than most online personality tests because its used by psychs, but even when used by psychs remember its not diagnostic. It will take time to self-evaluate yourself and you need to download an Excel file from their site as well to see your results.

    First, go to http://braceanalysis.com/free_downlo...0generator.XLT and, if you need to, something to open it with such as OpenOffice or SSuite Office Excalibur release (I use OpenOffice).

    Then fill out http://www.braceanalysis.com/clientarea/profile_hl.html before entering the data into the .xls file.

    After opening the .xls file, click on Raw Data Entry and enter your answers, then see what you get as results in your Analysis Aide. Green results are suggested the most strongly, yellow results are less strongly suggested, red/pink results are negative and just ignore the grey ones.

    These are the meanings of the twelve columns from left to right, and of the 'three core aspects of human nature'.

    For example, these are my results.

    Re: BRACE (Behavioral Relativity And Cognitive Economics) Character Profile

    Ok, If I've understood this correctly I'm positive for Narcissism ( 0.24 )and a maybe for Histrionic Personality Disorder (0.22) . I also have 3 reds for
    Paranoid Personality Disorder (-0.19), Avoidant Personality Disorder (-0.24), Dependent Personality Disorder (-0.33)
    The rest are whites

    I'm but a bit surprised, 'cause if I'm to believe this test I must be stupid poser I guess I didn't follow the rules of filling up the test (choose the less if you're in between)


    still took 3/4 h to fill it

    According to that you're most likely an 'amorous narcissist', Wizzard. You're obviously very independant as well.

    Well I don't know you, but Millon defines the amorous narcissist as NPD with hystrionic features, and that's what you get.

    Re: BRACE (Behavioral Relativity And Cognitive Economics) Character Profile

    exactly half of that is true p.s. i think of myself more like the 2nd type

    ---------- Post added at 08:41 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:33 PM ----------

    a combination between 'em :? amoral-yes, disloyal-no, fraudulent-no,deceptive-yes, arrogant-as seen but most people, but I strongly believe I'm not, it's just their own disability to divide objective from subjective that makes me one in their heads, con man-could be, charlatan-no, dominating-if i can, contemptuous-I just think one must first prove himself of any worth, still I follow the "Believe so you don't get lied to(not sure about the translation)", vindictive-I just don't like holding something back or feeling something is to be returned.

    ---------- Post added at 08:45 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:41 PM ----------

    I feel special for no real reason, just because I feel unique, lucky and so forth..., I hate people who boast about being privileged or who think of themselves for something more than the rest Without a good reason (or a valid one at least). the rest is 'yes' except the 'by association' part (not really sure what it means)

    If the test's right about the HPD as well as the narcissism, you'd be the third type.

    Online personality tests do not belong in General World Topics, nor should they be labeled "Economics". Please reserve General World Topics for topical issues, news, policy, and other objective discussions.This test should be taken for novelty purposes only, and discussed with that in mind.

    The test actually has been presented professionally in two journals, but it goes without saying that self-testing isn't diagnostic and the website stresses that it only provides diagnostic considerations.

    I found this "Believes that he or she is "special" and unique and can only be understood by, or should associate with, other special or high-status people (or institutions)"
    for the 3-rd type and I do think like that just not to the extreme to deny other possibilities I like different people in any way

    Well its self explanatory, really. Disorders rarely occur in isolation, in Millon's taxonomy of subtypes the 'amorous narcissist' has the strongest narcissistic traits, but also tendencies towards hystrionicism. The .img is from his website, but his books describe the subtypes in more detail.

    If the tests accurate, the amorous subtype would fit your own results the best. If you search on Google Books for 'millon' and 'narcissistic' and 'hystrionic', you should find information (I can't copy and paste for you from Google Books).

    Yep, it sounds like a narcissist. I remember that's one of the DSM criteria, word for word. What do you mean by the third type? I thought you meant the amorous narcissist, which was the third from left to right in the .img file.

    ---------- Post added at 07:50 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:35 PM ----------

    If you're interested, I get accused of the fifth and ninth and sometimes the first, but I fit both six and seven of the current DSM criteria. I do lack empathy like narcissists, but I also lack a need for admiration which also defines narcissism. There are similarities between me and people diagnosed with NPD, but I don't fit the NPD concept.
