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 one who is
extremely domineering.....
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,
one 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 and 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 it 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.

Great job. Thanks for this lead. It helps the wanderers, seekers, searchers, and the rest of us, as well.

At end of the results of the real-time quiz says: "Nobody, not even a quiz like this, can tell you conclusively whether this is truly how your friends see you or not. In fact, although this quiz is attributed to Oprah's Dr. Phil, we have no way of knowing whether it has any basis in empirical research or not. So you should take these results as something for fun and not too seriously. (Supposedly Dr. Phil scored a 55 and Oprah scored a 38.)" -- post the link to the quiz, in case someone needs a live and real-time solution about themselves. Here is the link: http://psychcentral.com/cgi-bin/personquiz.cgi -- Best wishes.

@ Hyberabadiz:

Tests do not totally measure the exact character of one person. We are all aware of it. Not all men know themselves
well.

Although personality tests allow others to have a glimpse of one's persona, we must not be mislead by the fact that no matter how the results get close to the reality of one's true character, those remain to be just a tip of the iceberg.

Let us all remember that only those people who know themselves well are considered credible enough to speak from their own experience.

The truth however obliges every man to know himself well before he makes an objective assessment of other people's actions and decisions. Even then, I still believe that no one has the right to be judgmental.

Thanks for your comment.:)
