51 to 60 Points – Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, and rather impulsive personality. You’re a natural leader who’s quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. You’re bold and adventurous, willing to try anything once, and you radiate excitement, making people want to be in your company.
41 to 50 Points – Others see you as lively, charming, and amusing. You’re always in the center of attention, but you’re balanced enough not to let it go to your head. You’re kind, considerate, and understanding, always ready to help cheer someone up.
31 to 40 Points – Others see you as sensible, cautious, and practical. You’re clever, talented, and gifted, but you’re also modest. You don’t make friends too easily, but the friendships you do form are extremely loyal, and you expect the same loyalty in return.
21 to 30 Points – Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. You’re cautious and extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder who examines everything from all angles before making a decision. Your friends would be surprised if you ever acted impulsively.
Under 21 Points – People view you as shy, nervous, and indecisive. They see you as someone who needs to be taken care of and doesn’t want to get involved in anything or anyone. Some may even find you boring. Only your closest friends know the real you.
