This is the only time that I have had a result like this :(
I have been feeling more anxious recently so I think that is why.

Categorical shifts in outcome point to an invalid (or unreliable) measure of personality, as traits (as opposed to states) are supposed to be stable over time.

Out of curiosity, how often do you take these tests?

The problem with free tests as well is they calculate an outcome based on what what you're telling it at the time, as opposed to examining the cognitive functions which paid tests are supposed to look at. That's why free tests can be difficult to learn from in these situations and is why a good sense of self-awareness is neeeded. I know paid and legitimate tests do it differently, I'm not 100% sure how though.

I'll grant you the overall premise that paid and free tests are different, but all psychometrics (free or otherwise) depend on the answers you give at the time.
