We all have our own approaches to traveling, but have you ever wondered whether there is a link between your preferences and your personality? Now you can find out with a free online test and take part in some interesting research at the same time.
The University of Cambridge has made the “What Type Of Traveler Are You?” test available to the general public. Clicking the link takes you straight to the first page of the test. You will be asked to spend several minutes answering questions about how and when you like to travel. The test asks you to indicate, for example, how you like to book your vacation, whether you always take time to visit tourist attractions, and the kind of amenities you consider to be most important in a hotel.
The final third of the test is devoted to more traditional personality-style questions that measure five different traits: Openness to Experience, Conscientiousness, Extraversion, Agreeableness, and Neuroticism. Once you have completed the test in its entirety, you will be presented with an easy-to-read results page that rates how you score on each of the “Big 5” traits, along with a few questions that invite you to explore your personality further.
You also have the option to provide demographic details such as your sex, age, education level and place of birth. This will help the authors of the test draw links between personality styles and traveling preferences. However, this is not a requirement and you will receive your results regardless of how much information you share.
With this test, you can gain a deeper insight into your unique personality in just ten minutes. Why not use the reflective questions suggested by the researchers as journal prompts in the coming days? The higher your self-awareness, the more likely you are to address areas of your life that are ripe for change.
