I'm a 53 today.

Yeah... I know you hate this stuff. But I'm low on time to post all the exciting things going on in my life (yawn) so I thought I'd pass along this handy-dandy "Dr Phil test." (Dr. Phil scored 55; he did this test on Oprah - she was a 38.) I got a 53. Very interesting... not sure I buy it but it is better than nothing folks.

Now add up your total... here's what it means.

OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should "handle with care." You're seen as vain, self-centered, and 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. You are highly volatile, impulsive personality; a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right decisions. 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 your 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; 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'm a 44. I think that is accurate, based on what others tell me about how they see me. I think I'm actually more difficult to deal with than a 44 but do a good job of hiding that fact from other people. Like on the question about when people interrupt you, how do you react? Well I'm always irritated, but how pleasant would that be if I acted that way? Hahahahaha. Now if I don't shut up the next post will be from someone about how things have gone to my head, and how my score is up there past Oprah except I'm not helping orphans in South Africa so would I shut up already.

I'm not so sure about my 53... but I think 44 is pretty accurate for you.

And... I'll try not to interrupt you from now on!
