The Personality DNA Test

This test accurately predicts one’s personality using a saliva sample

The Science

The test identifies genes and single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with 14 different behavioral characteristics from your DNA sample. A proprietary algorithm analyzes the genetic data obtained from the saliva and builds a personal profile. The algorithm is based on a polygenic approach that links multiple SNPs and Genes with each of the 14 behavioral characteristics in a unique, novel and accurate manner. Each personal profile is based on the five factor model that describes five basics human personality traits regardless of language or culture. The five traits are extraversion, agreeableness, conscientiousness, neuroticism (or emotional stability), and openness to experience (or intellect). The test determines whether you are genetically inclined to be extraverted (assertive and sociable, rather than quiet and reserved), agreeable (cooperative, gentle, kind and polite, rather than antagonistic and rude), conscientious, neurotic, or open. Conscientious people are organized, dependable, dutiful, incorruptible, self-disciplined, and hardworking. Neurotic individuals tend to experience negative emotions, such as anxiety, depression, and irritation a lot and are not emotionally resilient. Open people have a broad rather than narrow ranges of interests, are sensitive rather than indifferent to art and beauty, and prefer novelty to routine.
