You will be presented four pairs of descriptions of "dimensions" or aspects. Choose the description that fits you best. As you read, try to see the most obvious, the most fundamental difference between two descriptions, and then decide... Try to answer as you really are, not how you may wish you were, or have to be at work.
Note: The test result may not be accurate in some cases. Depression or too much stress or anxiety usually brings out people's "shadow personality" which often appears to be some kind of inversion of their true personality. In some cases, it can be quite difficult to identify the REAL you. It is recommended that you take this simple Depression Screening Test and Stress Test before you continue.
