I daren't be myself

The repressed self: You find it difficult to be yourself. You would like to develop as a person without conflict or stress, and to assert yourself without taking risks. However, you think this isn’t possible and prefer to give up. Of course, this isn’t always a conscious decision but, when you consider it, you realise that you have sacrificed a lot of your needs, hopes, dreams and desires. It’s not all negative, though; your attitude means that you’re a good listener and show lots of empathy. You respect others and take care not to irritate them. This makes you an amiable friend who can fit into different social groups. But the price of this is plenty of self-denial, and a lot of regret and frustration. You may also have a slightly confused image. Some people may think of you as dull or bland because you rarely assert yourself or stick up for your beliefs, and you even feel a bit devalued or depressed from time to time. It’s sometimes necessary to annoy, disturb or oppose to make yourself heard. You need to get others to understand that you, too, have feelings and needs. You may rub people up the wrong way, but this is sometimes necessary to make an impact in life. You’ll find that you’re forgiven for it a lot quicker than you think.

If you have the spare change you might try the MMPI aka Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. You won't find this test just anywhere and that is good thing. Usually it's best to have a qualified individual interpret the results after quantified as it isn't a typical test analyzing initial reactions; it tends to probe past the outer layers of your psyche.

Yahoo Search: PsychCentral outlines tests' specs quite well. Go there if morbidly curious.....

I was always fond of the Rorscharch tests. I always had fun with those while watching the tester's face as I glibly described what I thought I saw. Wikipedia has a decent explanation re the vagaries, eccentricities surrounding this form of mental masturbation.

"I try to be myself

The secure self: You do your best to be yourself at all times. To you it’s possible and desirable to express your whole personality. You’re not ashamed to admit limitations or talk about your faults, and have no difficulty in recognising your qualities or celebrating your strong points. In your mind this is the only way to live. This makes you a very pleasant and secure friend. Your behaviour reassures those around you who doubt themselves, while encouraging them to seek their own role and direction in life. With you, things are simple and natural. This is the best situation for everyone. Well, almost… Be careful of your discreet self-satisfaction, which can cause psychological immobility. Although it can create stability and be beneficial to your emotional wellbeing, your attitude of self-tolerance is not quite so good for your personal development. Discomfort and frustration can be powerful and necessary catalysts for change in life. Being content is one thing, but stagnating is quite another."

Well okay

I can't even do this test without lying. The options are too limited and clearly not designed for the introverted. Most of mine were "I don't give a shit", "Leave and play video games", and "Tell them to get out of my house and stop desecrating the pool".

Like even the romantic relationship one, there wasn't a "I didn't give a fuck about people and studied my ass off".

Just no.



Yep. Especially the pool one. I wouldn't pretend to do something else, I'd just tell them "There is no way in Hell I'm gettin' naked in front of y'all."
