Personality quiz: Are you a fan of personality tests like Myers-Briggs type? Also, did you do a DNA test like 23andMe, AncestryDNA, or MyHeritage? If yes, you should check your personality type with your DNA data!
My name is Tomo. I’m the co-founder of Genomelink, a web platform where you can upload your raw DNA data to access more genetic traits such as Food & Nutrition, Fitness, Intelligence, and Physical Traits. And one of my favorites, of course, Personality Traits!
For centuries, scientists have been researching the relationship between genes and behavioral characteristics such as personality or cognitive ability. Recent research has shown that genetics plays a role in our personality. Of course, it is a complex science and a combination of environmental factors also influence and make up our personality type, but it is very interesting because recent science has revealed the mysterious relationship between our personality and genetics.

And here you go... My Personality DNA Test Results!
OK, Let’s See… My “Genetic Personality” Results
● Low level of agreeableness (unfortunately for my team…)
I’m strong-willed with a firm sense of independence. Ever since I was a child, I’ve preferred to take the path less trodden — I go against the crowd and rarely follow popular opinion. (It makes sense that I started my own company.)
● Low level of neuroticism (= very optimistic)
My upbringing, education, and experience have conditioned me to tackle problems after evaluating all the risks, but I feel there’s always an optimistic part of me that thinks “everything’s going to be just fine.”
● Low level of anger (yes)
I rarely get angry or enraged and I sometimes even struggle to show the emotion of “anger” even when it’s needed.
● High level of harm avoidance (as an entrepreneur, I like this)
I don’t want to get hurt (does anybody?). But, some would say life is all about taking risks! Unfortunately, I’ve always been one to avoid trying something I don’t think I’d be good at or succeed with. I guess a more positive interpretation of this would be that I have good risk management skills. I’m keenly aware of this trait in day-to-day life when I am forced to engage in high-risk decision making for my own business.
● High gambling tendency (really?)
Verdict: Maybe true…
I don’t engage in gambling for fun, but I can’t deny that I’m taking a huge gamble by starting a business…
● Experience more eudaimonic well-being (= I am happy)
I couldn’t agree with this more. This is kind of my philosophy. I think I’m good at being happy wherever I am and whatever I’m doing. I try to find joy and meaning in my life in simple ways and with small achievements in daily work.
● Experience loneliness more (I need your love)
Verdict: Very, very true
I know I am less agreeable. But the team at Genomelink and my friends, please remember that I feel more loneliness. I need your love.
Thoughts on genetic personality…
The friends and colleagues I’ve shown the results to all say that these genetic personality traits are spot on. I myself am surprised by how accurate the results are!
Genomics research that uses bioinformatics to interpret a person’s personality is still in the developmental stages. On the other hand, long-running sociological research in twins has already demonstrated strong evidence of the genetic influence on personality.
