If you've been following us for awhile, you already know that we LOVE personality tests! But while these tests provide lots of fun and insights, what do they really mean from a psychological perspective? This week, we are joined by Psychology Professor Katrina Graham, who helps us analyze these tests through a scientific lens and clues us into some of the strengths and weaknesses of each one. Find out what we need to watch out for and how to use and interpret these results in the way they are meant. Plus, we take a look at how certain abnormal psychology conditions can affect the ways in which we act.
