Now add up the total number of points.

OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they

should "handle with care."

You're seen as vain, self-centered, and who is

extremely dominant. Others may admire you,

wishing they could be more like you, but don't

always trust you, hesitating to become too

deeply involved with you.

51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an

exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive

personality; a natural leader, who'! s quick to

make decisions, though not always the right

ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome,

someone who will try anything once; someone

who takes chances and enjoys an adventure.

They enjoy being in your company because of

the excitement you radiate.

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh,

lively, charming, amusing, practical, and

always interesting; someone who's constantly

in the center of attention, but sufficiently

well-balanced not to let it go to their head.

They also see you as kind, considerate, and

understanding; someone who'll always cheer

them up and help them out.

31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible,

cautious, careful & practical. They see you as

clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not aperson who makes friends

too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal

to friends you do make and who expect the same

loyalty in return. Those who really get to

know you realize it takes a lot to shake your

trust in your friends, but equally that it

takes you a long time to get over if

that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as

painstaking and fussy. They see you as very

cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady

plodder. It would really surprise them if you

ever did something impulsively or on the spur

of the moment, expecting you to examine

everything carefully from every angle

and then, usually decide against it. They

think this reaction is caused partly by your

careful nature.

UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy,

nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs

looking after, who always wants someone else

to make the decisions & who doesn't want to

get involved with anyone or anything! They see

you as a worrier who always sees problems that

don't exist. Some people think you're

boring. Only those who know you well know that

you aren't.

I scored a 37 and I agree with its assessment :beatnik:

41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh,

I sure like to think this is pretty darn accurate. At least I find myself amusing... ::
