How Test Results Are Calculated

calculation system of our personality tests

In calculating Mental Age, some answers add points while others take them away. This methodology means that each individual question can significantly affect the outcome. The final score thus results from a set of additions and subtractions.
By providing particularly “juvenile” answers, it is possible to obtain results below zero: this is not a technical error, but an intentional phenomenon.
The resulting profiles are numerous, and by repeating the test, the user has the opportunity to experiment with the answers to unearth the most peculiar profiles.
There are no better or worse choices, so no control mechanism is required, as is the case with the Awareness and Awakening Tests.

In these two tests, each question contributes a certain number of points to the final score. Some questions weigh more than others, meaning that one question deemed important may be worth as much as two deemed less impactful.
The Awareness/Awakening score (xx/200) is given by the algebraic sum of the points obtained in the individual questions.
The calculation of the Awareness/Awakening level (e.g., Rational), on the other hand, is based not only on the algebraic sum of the points obtained in the individual questions, but also on any contradictions detected by the system in the replies provided by the user. What does it mean? Basically, the software is able to determine whether the person is operating without logic, providing some particularly conscious answers and others completely impulsive. In this case it will apply a smoothing algorithm, lowering the final result by one level while keeping the overall score intact. Doing so, prevents the user who responds impulsively or tries to cheat from getting a high level of Awareness/Awakening.

The result of this test presents two different types of information:
1) the level of psychic energy;
2) the description of personality.
Psychic energy is measured through an algorithm that analyzes the answers provided, giving each of them a score.
An example: if by answering a certain question the user implies that he or she is lazy, the relative level of psychic energy will be lower than that of another user who states that he or she is always on the go.
Instead, the description of personality is literally “built” around the person’s responses by analyzing each individual reply. A single different answer produces a new profile.
In addition, an auto-calibration mechanism has been implemented, which allows introducing new questions in case the test is repeated. This feature improves the overall accuracy of the test by reaching maximum precision on the third attempt by the user.

The final score coincides with the sum of the correct answers, except that some questions have more relevance than others. Particularly brain-teasing questions are most likely to affect the final score more than others. The test does not require all questions to be answered, and incomplete ones are counted as incorrect.
Since each question has a specific score, the IQ estimate may be different for the same number of correct answers. For example, a hypothetical Subject A might get an IQ of 100 by answering 20 questions correctly, while an equally hypothetical Subject B might get an IQ of 90 by answering the same number of questions correctly, but these questions have a lower incidence.
The statistical mean of our logical intelligence test ranges from 85 to 115. This means that over 60% of the population, regardless of age, falls within this range. Now let’s find out how to relate (normalize) your score to the statistical mean according to your age.
If you are 10-12 years old: multiply your score by 1.3. Let’s look at an example. Absolute score: 70. Normalized score by age: 91 (70×1.3)
If you are 13-15 years old: multiply your score by 1.2. Let’s see an example. Absolute score: 70. Normalized score for age: 84 (70×1.2)
If you are 16-17 years old: multiply your score by 1.1. Let’s look at an example. Absolute score: 70. Normalized score for age: 77 (70×1.1)
If you are at least 18 years old: your score requires no adjustment.

The wisdom test consists of two types of questions:
1) those with only one correct answer;
2) those that offer a range of possibilities.
In both cases, a specific score is assigned depending on the answer given; if it is correct, the highest score is given, while if it is incorrect but close to being correct, a lower score is given. On the other hand, if the answer is completely incorrect, the score will be zero.
In those questions that require a subjective answer and therefore are neither right nor wrong, the score will vary according to the level of maturity and awareness shown by the user. A frivolous answer will be worth zero points, while one that is not fully mature but neither is silly will have an intermediate value. The wisest answer will bring the maximum score.
Finally, there is a small bonus related to the age of the user, which is awarded only to the younger ones with the purpose of balancing their final score with respect to the obvious advantage of the older ones.
