Eric Hoffer once said, “We know ourselves chiefly by hearsay.”
And, of course, there is that famous lament, “If we could only see
ourselves as others see us.” Well, here’s a fun way to do just that. Take a
minute to take this test. It’s fun, and reportedly accurate.
What to do:
1) Grab a pen/pencil and paper.
2) Mark the paper 1 to 10 down the side
3) Answer each question on the paper
4) Refer to the scoring chart and record the point score for each question
5) Total up the points for all the questions and see where you land.

Add the total number of points.
OVER 60 POINTS:
Others see you as someone they should “handle with care.” You are
seen as vain, self-centered and extremely dominant. Others may admire
you and wish they could be more like you, but they don’t always trust you
and hesitate to become too deeply involved with you.
FROM 51 TO 60 POINTS:
Your friends see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather
impulsive personality; a natural leader, quick to make decisions (though not always the right ones). They see you as a bold and venturesome;
someone who will try anything - well almost anything -once; someone who takes a chance and enjoys an adventure. They
enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.
FROM 41 TO 50 POINTS:
Others see you as fresh, lively, charming,amusing and always
interesting; someone who is constantly the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to your head. They see you also as
kind,considerate and understanding; someone who will cheer them up and
help them out.
FROM 31 TO 40 POINTS:
Other people see you as sensible, cautious, careful and practical.They see you as clever, gifted or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or too easily, but someone who is extremely
loyal to the friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you realize that it takes a lot to
shake your trust in your friends, but, equally, that it takes you a long
time to get over it if that trust is shaken.
FROM 21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking, perhaps a little fussy at
times. They see you as very, very cautious and 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. They expect you to
examine everything carefully from every side and then, usually decide
They think this reaction on your part is caused partly by your carefully nature and partly by laziness.
UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous and indecisive, someone needs to
be looked after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions
and who doesn’t want to get involved with anyone or anything.
