Project Description

We are planning to conduct some experiments in social psychology. We need a large list of general personality statements to create imaginary profiles for people.

Check this website for a guide on how to put together these statements.

Essentially, there are two types of statement that we are looking for:

• Barnum statements are general personality descriptions which apply to almost everyone, under most circumstances – “You have a great need for other people to like and admire you”

• The rainbow ruse is a statement that says something about the clients character, and also says the opposite, in the same statement - “While you're often very generous and kind, you occasionally have a selfish streak that you feel a bit guilty about”

You have a great need for other people to like and admire you.

You have a great deal of unused capacity which you have not turned to your advantage.

Disciplined and self-controlled outside, you tend to be worrisome and insecure inside.

You prefer a certain amount of change and variety and become dissatisfied when hemmed in by restrictions and limitations.

You pride yourself as an independent thinker and do not accept others statements without satisfactory proof.

You have a tendency to be critical of yourself.

At times you have serious doubts as to whether you have made the right decision or done the right thing.

At times you are extroverted, sociable, while at other times you are introverted, wary, reserved.

While you have some personality weaknesses, you are generally able to compensate for them.

You come across as an independent thinker, and don’t accept others’ statements without satisfactory proof.

You have found it unwise to be too frank in revealing yourself to others.

At times you are extroverted, affable, sociable, while at other times introverted, wary, and reserved.

Security is one of your major goals in life.

You've gone through a lot of ups and downs over the past few years, emotionally and financially, and that has caused some stress in your life.

You set huge, unattainable goals for yourself that you're rarely able to achieve.

You have a creative streak that you aren't always able to indulge in.

You are an independent thinker. You like to check out claims for yourself before you believe what someone tells you.

You often have great ideas that you just never have the motivation to follow through on.

You get bored easily and crave excitement in your life.

You fall in love easily.

You feel guilty about and worry about things that are completely out of your control.

You are often too critical of yourself.

You are a daydreamer and a romantic. Often times you find yourself tuning out of conversations because your mind is somewhere else.

Often time you keep your emotions bottled up, and that's not good for you. But you're also afraid of being too assertive and hurting someone's feelings.

You are highly selective of your friends and very picky about who you have relationships with, although you have a wide range of acquaintances.

You procrastinate too much and have a hard time getting motivated at times.

You are not deceptive -- you're very honest and trustworthy.
