A similar but legitimate questionaire is the Myers-Briggs questionaire. In this questionaire there are no right or wrong answers—different people have different personalities and will make different choices.
Myers-Briggs divides personality types into four major categories, with each category having four subcategories, for a total of 16 different personality types. The questionaire helps guide you to a profile that may describe you fairly well. From there you are free to browse other profiles to see if you find one you feel describes yourself even better. It doesn't matter which profile you identify with. What matters is finding a written description of yourself that you do identify with. Words help bring to the forefront of consciousness traits you already knew you possessed but didn't realize were unique to your personality type. It helps to understand in what ways you are different from other people and that it's natural for people to be different.
A classic book on the Myers-Briggs is David Keirsey "Please Understand Me II: Temperament, Character, Intelligence" but I warn this is not easy reading because it describes 16 personality types, one of which you'll identify with, and 15 which will be foreign to you. Understanding that other people actually think in different ways from you is initially a hard concept to learn, but eventually you'll understand why most other people seem to be different from you—it's because they are. Again, there is no "right" personality type, there are just different personalities. If you search the internet for "Myers-Briggs" you will find ample information (and probably some misinformation).
