My students love psychological tests. Sometimes, I bring a test to my college psychology classes and we always have a very lively discussion about the merits of the particular test. My students’ favorite tests are memory and personality tests.

It’s evident that they are not the only people who like taking psychological tests. One need only to look at the huge number of free online tests offered on various websites. Even scientists use already online testing to get data for their research.

Occasionally, students ask me about online tests they took on a website. They can’t always figure out what these tests really mean and how they are supposed to interpret their result.

Know Yourself!

Their questions gave me the idea to this page with links to free online tests that are based on acknowledged psychological concepts. Most websites will provide a cost free brief overview about the test score.

For those of you, who would like to know more about their score, I have a special offer: You can email me your test score and any questions or concerns you have about it. Within 3 business days, you will receive my answer. I offer this special service for a fee of only $ 20.

Locus of Control test

Locus of control refers to how someone perceives the cause of events in his or her life. Someone with an internal locus of control believes that he/she is responsible and has control over what is happening in life , while a person with an external locus of control would more likely blame/thank fate, destiny, luck, society or some other force beyond her control.
