Nothing really new here. I generally would like to think of myself as generally balanced, and you look at the things that scored at extremes:

High anxiety? Check. (Heh, High Anxiety.)
Low Aggressiveness? Low social assertiveness? Check, check.


The only thing that might be a surprise to some -- intellect, which is described as a scale between [instinctive, unstable] on the one hand, and [cerebral, analytical]. Then again, maybe it isn't such a surprise if you know me well enough.

Should the totals all add up to 100% (ie 16 categories should total 800 pts/800%?).

Haven't tried it yet, but I'm wondering if my agressiveness and intellect are at odds....re: when I spout off about stuff am I doing it intelligently?
