Interactive Johari Window for me

Nancy White has pointed the way to a Johari Window tool that let's one see how others view them.  I've started my own window by selecting a number of characteristics, and now I invite you to select from that same set of characteristics and see whether my image of myself matches what I project to you.  jackvinson's Johari Window

The source website describes the Johari Window thusly:

The Johari Window was invented by Joseph Luft and Harrington Ingram in the 1950s as a model for mapping personality awareness. By describing yourself from a fixed list of adjectives, then asking your friends and colleagues to describe you from the same list, a grid of overlap and difference can be built up.

This one works very simply.  Users just select from a set of characteristics with the only request being to limit the selection to six words out of 55.  And the results are displayed immediately for both me and anyone who wishes to visit.  When I've used this kind of tool in the past, it's been based on questions with Likert scale ratings to get at more subtle shades of personality.  One can add more complexity by layering how-I-know-you information into the survey, so one can slice by family, direct reports, colleagues, etc.
