Users who complete all of the test blocks will receive a full psychological portrait and will better understand the complex characteristics of their states of mind.
The initial game Test Yourself: Psychology, which included test packs for Intelligence and Nervous System, was one of the top five downloaded games on PSN and is available for $2.99.
Test Yourself is a serious scientific product developed by a team of professional psychologists and counselors....

248w ago - It looks like we're finally going to be able to get a glimpse at Team ICO's ultra-secret game!
Sony's sure going to put up a grand show during this year's E3. Their PSP line-up is pretty huge as it is. And for the PS3, you can bet your last rat's ass that God of War 3 and Heavy Rain will be there. But what else is there?
Somehow, Sony's managed to keep Team ICO's secret game under the radar for months now. But in E3, it looks like the curtains will finally be pulled up.
The new game following the spirit of Ico and Shadow of the Colossus is now confirmed to appear in E3 in the form of a trailer and some gameplay footage.
Heck, we might actually hear about the new game even sooner, during GDC (which starts two weeks from now!). Though the new game isn't confirmed to be revealed during the event, Ico and Colossus creator Fumito Ueda is confirmed to have a keynote speech duing GDC '09.
