The IDRlabs Second World War Generals Test (IDR-SWWGT©) was developed by, and is the exclusive property of, IDRlabs International. The IDR-SWWGT is not associated with any specific researchers in the field of psychology or any associated research institutions.

The IDRlabs Second World War Generals Test has been developed by professionals who work with psychological instruments and personality assessments, using historical research regarding the wartime strategies and general personality traits of six prominent WWII generals. The present test utilizes genuine psychometric items to ascertain a test-taker's closest WWII general match based on aspects of their own personality.

Online tests such as this one, whether they are professional, academic, or for entertainment purposes only, are primarily first looks at some component of your personality or character. Regarding the present test specifically, your test scores and personalized results will provide information as to your closest personality match with one of six generals from the Second World War (Montgomery, Manstein, Patton, Rommel, Eisenhower, and Zhukov.) Despite this test's being based on academic and historical research on WWII and the strategies of its most prominent generals, no instrument ever devised can match your personality with total accuracy or reliability. In addition, no psychological measurement can replace familiarizing yourself with the relevant personality theories. For more information regarding the above WWII generals, you can consult academic and historical resources that are readily available online.

The test provides feedback such as the following: George Patton – Patton favored strategies that were aggressive, fast-paced, and offensive. An energetic hands-on commander, he was a man of action who preferred to act immediately rather than risk letting an opportunity slip by. Impetuous on the battlefield and driven to win, Patton eschewed static defenses as “monuments to man’s stupidity” and strove for constant forward momentum in the operations he commanded. A man’s man and a soldier’s general, Patton was able to inspire, persuade, and motivate troops with his enthusiastic (and often profane) speeches, succeeding in eliciting marches and attacks from his men that others thought impossible. Patton’s preference for attack meant that he could become impatient with those who were not willing to seize every opportunity to smash open enemy lines, stating that they would have time to rest when the war was over.
