oujustgetme.com rates your personality in categories such as outgoingness and empathy—and lets you find out how others see you. The “Guess Myself Now!” test comprises “40 easy questions but delivers a surprisingly insightful assessment.”

Implicit.harvard.edu/implicit, the homepage for Harvard’s Project Implicit, tries to show how unconscious biases can effect our decisions. It currently features a test designed to uncover bias about race and other issues raised by this year’s presidential race.

Sanityscore.com is “one of the best online mental health resources.” This simple test assesses aspects of mental health, “including your risk of depression, anxiety, and other emotional disorders.” Just don’t treat it as a replacement for a professional assessment.
