I don't generally dig online "tests"...

But this one, which claims to be based on genuine psychological research, seems to have provided uncannily accurate results to others who have taken it.

Here are my results:

Your Existing Situation
Trying to improve his position and prestige. Dissatisfied with his existing circumstances and considers some improvement essential to his self-esteem.

Your Stress Sources
Delights in the tasteful, the gracious, and the sensitive, but maintains his attitude of critical appraisal and refuses to be swept off his feet unless genuineness and integrity can be absolutely vouched for. Therefore keeps a strict and watchful control on his emotional relationships as he must know exactly where he stands. Demands complete sincerity as a protection against his own tendency to be too trusting.

Your Restrained Characteristics
Willing to participate and to allow himself to become involved, but tries to fend off conflict and disturbance in order to reduce tension. Circumstances force him to compromise and to forgo some pleasures for the time being. Capable of achieving physical satisfaction from sexual activity.

Your Desired Objective
Seeks affectionate, satisfying and harmonious relationships. Desires an intimate union, in which there is a love, self-sacrifice and mutual trust.

Your Actual Problem
Needs to protect himself against his tendency to be too trusting, as he finds it is liable to be misunderstood or exploited by others. Is therefore seeking a relationship providing peaceful and understanding intimacy, and in which each knows exactly where the other stands.


In all candor, I can't find anything inaccurate in the above. It's almost frighteningly spot-on.

Those results really reflect what you've been writing about. I found that mine were incredibly accurate too!

I like the part about the "stress" Your test was right on, from the way I see it in your blog. I'd apply the stress part to the way I feel, also. ((BigHugs)) from Sunny

You may be more sane than we thought. My test is a worry. I'll try again.

sounds very accurate... I may try it myself.

Sane, HarpO?

Only if you consider misplaced trust sane.

To me, the tests says I'm an idiot. That squares with my view of me.

I often wonder how those tests work. I find them interesting.
I just tried doing it, will have to go back later. It was very, very slow loading my results.

Yours is not too bad. Mine is like someone read my mind. Which I rather not have others do.

Mine was pretty well spot on, too. My oslnmnmb detector didn't go off.
