    Don't be overly sensitive! The following is pretty accurate. It only takes two
    minutes. Take this test for yourself and send it to your friends, including
    the one who sent it, and let them know who you are. The person who sent it
    to you placed their score in the subject box. Please do the same before
    forwarding to your friends. Don't peek but begin the test as you scroll
    down and answer.

    Answers are for who you are now ... not who you were in the past.

    Have pen or pencil and paper ready. This is an actual test given by the
    Human Relations Department at many of the major corporations today. It
    helps them get better insight concerning their employees & prospective

    It's only 10 simple questions, so......grab a pencil and paper, keeping track
    of your letter answers. Make sure to change the subject of the e-mail to read
    YOUR total. When you finished, forward this to everyone you know, and also
    send it to the person who sent this to you. Make sure to put YOUR score in
    the subject box. Ready? ?

    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 your

    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 & 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'd 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 ended up as a "38". I agree with the description. I'll pass this around the office, and see what the others come up with.

    34 here; seems accurate enough.
    would be interesting to compile all the numbers at end and get an average of us gun nut's.
