Personality test – what and why?
Marketers use personality tests to boost traffic, generate leads, and strengthen customer relationships with their brands. This is a fun and effective way to turn website visitors into leads and sales.
A personality quiz is a set of questions that allow users to learn about themselves. It allows participants to assess their preferences and qualities in an exciting way. Users answer those fun questions and mindlessly fill in their name, email, address, etc. In this way, personality quizzes allow you to initiate conversations with your audience and convert them into email subscribers and customers.
Why should you have a personality quiz on your website? Because it is a fantastic way to create a sense of trust among the audience with a personalized content experience. By using quizzes, you can uncover something interesting or unexpected about the customers, encouraging them to share the quiz result with their friends. This will boost your social media engagement and eventually bring more traffic to your website.
To summarize why you should have a personality quiz on your website –
- Build trust and gain attention with personalized content
- Grow your email subscriber and lead list
- Boost your social media engagement and promotion
- Bring more traffic to your site
- Generate more ad revenue

Creating a personality quiz in WordPress
Follow the steps below to create a personality quiz in WordPress –
Step 1: Install Fluent Forms
Installing Fluent Form is just like installing any other WordPress plugin. Go to the Plugins section of the WordPress admin dashboard and click on Add New. Now, search Fluent Forms, install and activate it.
To access the quiz feature in your personality test, you will need the pro version of Fluent Forms. This enables you to go more miles with a lot more features and functionalities. Once you have installed it, upgrade Fluent Forms to the Pro version and activate it with the license key.
Step 2: Create a personality quiz
To create a personality quiz in WordPress, hover over Fluent Forms Pro on your WordPress dashboard and click on New Form. You will see a window similar to the image below.
This is the form editor window. Give the form a name by clicking on Blank Form in the upper left corner of the window.
Now, it’s time to add some questions to the personality quiz. We will use Radio Field for adding our questions and the answers. Adding a Radio Field is easy. Just click on the Radio Field from the Input Fields tab or drag and drop the field on the form editor.
Clicking on the added field will give you many Input Customization options. Write your question in the Element Label field and your answers in the Options field.
You can also mark this question as Required if you want not to allow users to submit the quiz without selecting an option.
Add other questions following the same process.
Click on Save Form once you have added all the questions.
Step 3: Enable Quiz Module
To be able to use the Quiz feature of Fluent Forms, go to the Integration Modules and turn on the toggle switch of the Quiz Module.
Now go to the Settings & Integrations tab of the quiz form you have just created and click on Quiz Settings. Check the box beside Enable Quiz Module.
You need to add a Quiz Score field to allow the quiz form to calculate scores based on user inputs. Just click on Quiz Score from the Advanced Fields tab.
Click on the added Quiz Score field to access Input Customization. Then choose Grade System from the dropdown menu of Select Score Type.
Before we move into the next step, let’s quickly customize the Submit button. Click on the default Submit button to get the customization options. Change the Submit Button Text to Submit Quiz. You can change the button style, size, and alignment to match your needs.
Step 4: Configure Quiz Settings
In this step, you have to configure Quiz Settings to assess the different personalities of the users and show results based on user inputs.
First, uncheck the box that says “Show Result on confirmation page.”
Now, you have to change the Grade System to show the customized result when a user submits the personality test. But before defining the Grade Label, we recommend you assign scores for each option.
To do this, scroll down to the Quiz Questions. Here you will find all the questions you have added to your quiz. Just turn on the toggle switch beside each question, and you will be able to assign scores. For our personality quiz, there is no right or wrong answer. We want to assign a certain score for each option. This is why we have to enable the Advance Scoring option.
Assign specific scores to each option of the added question.
Do the same for all the questions.
Once you are done assigning scores to the options, it’s time to set the Grade System. Under the Grade Label, provide different results that will be shown to the users after quiz submission. For each Grade Label, define a minimum and maximum range based on your assigned scores.
Don’t forget to click on Save Settings.
Step 5: Configure form settings
You are almost done with creating a personality quiz for your website. Now you have to configure form settings to show users their personality type based on the inputs.
From the Confirmation Settings under Form Settings, change the confirmation message. By default, it is set to display “Thank you for your message. We will get in touch with you shortly.”
You can customize this message according to your needs. For now, we only want to show the personality type after quiz submission. Fluent Forms’ shortcode feature comes in handy in this case. Click on Add Shortcodes and select Quiz Score from Input Options.
Click on Save Settings if you are happy with the settings. You can test the quiz by clicking on the Preview & Design button in the top right corner.
There you go! A personality quiz is now ready to be published on your website.
Step 6: Publish your form
You can bring your form live on your WordPress site in three ways.
First of all, you can use the Gutenberg block editor to select the quiz you have just created using Fluent Forms. In the WordPress dashboard’s left sidebar, click Add New under Pages. Give the page a title. In the block editor’s blank area, click the plus (+) sign or insert a forward slash (/). Then type Fluent Forms and choose the quiz.
An alternative second way to do that is to use Fluent Forms’ Shortcode feature. You can find the shortcode of the quiz on top of the form editor window.
Just click on the Shortcode to copy it. Paste this shortcode using a shortcode block anywhere you want to display your quiz on your website.
The third and most amazing way is to publish your form on a dedicated landing page. Go to Settings & Integrations > Landing Page. Check the box beside Enable Form Landing Page Mode. Here you can fully customize the landing page according to your brand identity.
Don’t forget to click on Save Settings after necessary customization.
Responding to the questions will show pre-defined feedback on users’ personalities based on their input.
Your personality quiz is now ready for your audience to play with! You can share the URL of the landing page to let your audience participate in the quiz.
Create a Conversational Personality Quiz (Bonus)
To give your audience a better quiz experience, you can convert your traditional quiz into a conversation type of quiz. It is easy peasy to set up. Click on the three dots on the top right corner of the form editor window and select Convert to Conversational Forms.
Conversational quizzes will give your user the best experience, and as a result, you can see a high submission rate.
This interactive type of quiz presents one question at a time, so your audiences are not distracted by other questions. Also, you can customize the interface to align the overall look with your brand identity.
A personality quiz on your business website can be a great way of bringing more traffic to your site, generating leads, getting insights into your customers, and increasing brand awareness.
