How to Add & Use Rank Order Question Type in Personality Quizzes


Rank order questions let you ask quiz takers to rank a set of options based on their preference or importance. You can use rank-order questions to create personality quizzes that reveal the traits or characteristics of your respondents based on how they order the choices.


For example, you can create a quiz that asks respondents to rank their favorite colors from 1 to 4. Based on their ranking, you can assign different points to each color and calculate the total score for each respondent. Then, you can use the score to show different results or feedback based on the personality type associated with each color.


Here's what the rank order question will look like in a personality quiz:
