Personality Match

Like Benito Mussolini, you are high in energy, sociable and spontaneous. When you are inspired to throw yourself into something, your enthusiasm is contagious, and others enjoy coming along with you for the ride. However, if you do not take care to think things through, you may find yourself trapped by consequences that could easily have been foreseen and avoided by more cautious people.

Words of Warning

Points to consider for people with your personality - have you ever:

  • Used your boldness and spontaneity to do and get away with things that you really shouldn't have?
  • Used your charm and ability to form personal connections with people to get them on board with a course of action that they might not otherwise have been willing to support?
  • Downplayed or ignored genuine points of conflict with others that you really should have tended to, simply because you did not want it to spoil your enjoyment of the moment?
  • Let your preference for immediacy and directness blot out more academic or complexity-laden voices that might otherwise have been able to offer a valuable, if belabored, perspective?
  • Let your own positive feelings about present and past accomplishments overpower your sense of equitability, leading you to take center stage in social situations and come across as boastful?

Scientific Research

According to studies from Cambridge University (UK) and Texas AM University (US), your scores indicate that you are:

  • More likely than the average person to judge people by their actions, rather than by their words.
  • More likely than the average person to cut straight to the chase when talking.
  • More likely than the average person to simply look at the bottom line as opposed to pondering a lot of qualifications and maybes.
  • More energetic and quicker to act than the average person.
  • Someone who has a greater number of friends than the average person.
  • More assertive in social situations than the average person.
  • Someone who is more excitement-seeking and prone to experiencing more positive emotions than the average person.
  • More spontaneous and flexible in your approach to problem solving than the average person.
  • More risk-prone, and less afraid of exposing yourself to risk, than the average person.
  • More likely than the average person to believe that "rules are meant to be broken" and to utilize that belief to your own advantage.
  • More likely than the average person to leave a messy room when you go to work in the morning.
  • More likeable, warm, and trusting than the average person.
  • More likely than the average person to think in terms of "win-win" and to compromise as a means of settling disputes.
  • Someone who forgives more easily than the average person and who gives more to charities than the average person.
  • Someone who feels more concern for others and who sympathizes more with the feelings of others than the average person.
  • Amazingly, your personality is simply too smooth and well-rounded for this study to be able to say anything about you.

Historical Background

Benito Mussolini (1883-1945) was an Italian journalist and politician and a founder of the National Fascist Party. He became the prime minister in 1922, the youngest in Italian history at that time, and ruled under the pretense of constitutionality until 1925. During this time period, he outlawed strikes and consolidated his power through the use of his secret police force. In 1925, he set up a legal dictatorship and gave himself the title of Il Duce. Thus Mussolini was a principal founder of fascism.

In 1940, he sided with Germany in World War II. By 1943, the King of Italy lost faith in his leadership during the Allied invasion and ordered him arrested. Rescued by German special forces, Mussolini led a German client state in Northern Italy until 1945. As total defeat became evident, he attempted to flee north, but he was caught and executed by Italian partisans. His body was hung upside down in Milan on public display.
