A friend e-mailed me this quiz, and DH and I both took it. I was AMAZED by how right-on it was for both of us! Thought it would be interesting to see what people here scored, and whether they believe it acurately describes them, and whether those on the board agree.

--------

Below is Dr. Phil's test.

(Dr.Phil scored 55. He did this test on Oprah-she got a 38.) Some folks pay a lot of money to find this stuff out.

Read on, this is very interesting! Don't be overly sensitive!

It's only 10 simple questions, so...... grab a piece of paper and a pencil and write down your letter. After you are done with the test match the letter to the number and then add all the numbers up and you will have your score. Match the score to the answers and it will give you an idea of what you are like.

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,

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 & 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 46. It says:

"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."

This is pretty much what I get from anyone who is asked to describe me. Would you say this translates to my "online persona" too?

DH got a 33. It says:

"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."

OMG...this described my husband PERFECTLY!!! I could hardly believe it!

I normally don't put too much into the personality quiz things, but this was so dead-on for both of us, that I couldn't resist getting you all to play! ;)

I'm a 48. "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."

OK, as long as people see me that way, I guess that's what's important. LOL

I've seen that quiz before with the final point ranges associated with the characters in the Winnie the Pooh series.

I think the order from most points to least is this: Rabbit, Tigger, Pooh, Kanga, Piglet, and Eeyore.

Depending upon my mood I'm either a 'high' Kanga, or a 'low' Pooh. Which means I typically score between 38 or so and 42 or so.

Mine was 39. Fairly accurate, I consider myself a sensible person and I will admit I am pretty talented, lol. I am not an outgoing person when it comes to making new friends, I've had the same group of girlfriends for over 15 years. I'm pretty reserved around people I dont know.
