10. (a) 4 (b) 2 (c) 3 (d) 5 (e) 6 (f) 1

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, lightly 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 & 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.

  1. Ah Toni - a Goddess, always knew I was one, but no one ever recognised it before! Better tell D. Think I`d rather be a 38 like Oprah, sounds more of a sympatheic personality.

  2. You are sympathetic too!

    I'll tell D but these Anderson men sometimes need a bit of persuading :D

  3. I'm a 41, but there's a couple of questions that both applied - so I'm a 38 or a 41. Both looked okay.

  4. I'm a 50, kinda border line on bold and rash!!! Never.... Some of the questions had different answers that applied, e.g. the colours and when you are at your best, i.e. like night time for socialising but then other nights I could be curled up in beddy bungle by 9:30!! Guess I may be scitzo.

  5. I'm a 40. There was one question that didn't have any answer I felt applied to me but it didn't make much difference. It may have pushed me over 40. Interesting.

  6. LOL--I didn't think about it too much :) Found the best fit of the answers there.

    Deb--I'd say 50 suits you.

    Eve, Rene--you're both similar to me :D Scary ;-)
