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 a person 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 and 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 got a 38, and it describes me very accurately.

Very accurate!

Brigitte said...

I got a 50. Very spot on for me, at least I think that is the way people see me. Though we have never met, I would say that it is spot on for you as well!!

nicki mcfadden said...

I got a 45 but I feel like I the 31 to 40 catagory better describes me.

Karen said...

I scored a 32. I think that's pretty accurate for me.

Courtney said...

I got a 39...or a 41...I can't decide on one of the answers....LOL But when I read both descriptions, and read them to Chris(my husband) we both agree I am the 41-50! Either way...it was a fun test!

Holly Aytes said...

I got a 42 and I would say that it describes me perfectly. Since I don't "know" you I can't be 100% certain but I would say from what I do know of you that it does describe you pretty well. Am I right?

K and/or K said...

I'm a 35 and this is spot on ME! So funny how Dr. Phil can figure me out via someone's blog!

I got 36. But some of the questions were a bit "iffy". Like favorite color... favorite color for WHAT? Bedroom walls or dress to wear to a party?

Michelle said...

I got a 42. I'm not entirely sure that really describes me. I do think it describes you though.
