I agree with you. I took one of those tests and it was pretty accurate.
What really interests me is the field of developmental psychology research. In development psychology research a psychologist might want to explore parenting styles with respect to their children’s academic and social behavior when they grow up.
This child psychology research will look at various parenting styles such as the indulgent parent vs. the authoritarian parent.
It also looks at levels of parental involvement in school to determine which children will most likely achieve success and which children with have higher levels of self esteem.
For example, the indulgent parent might raise a child with high self esteem, but will not perform well in school and may underperform in their working careers because the parents are so indulgent.
These children almost lose their drive and ambition because the parents shower them with gifts.
Authoritarian parents most likely will have children that will be successful at work, but may suffer from low self esteem and even depression later in life.
