Are you independent?

I found a book in the library full of psychological quizzes. These aren't your normal Myspace quizzes that someone makes up, they were tested and they're accurate. The results are in percentiles from 15 to 85.. if you had 85, you were more ___ than 85% of people who took it in the university or wherever they tested it. Well, I took the independence one, and I was over the 85 percentile, so obviously I'm very independent, which surprised me a little. I am also very competitive, over 85 too. I'm also over 85 for being romantic. I'm so extreme! I wasn't really in the midpoint for most of the quizzes, though I did not do them all. What do you think you would get?

I think I am independent. Although you have gotten me interested when it comes to this quiz book. I wonder if you have to be a permanent resident in a town to check out a book at their library. Maybe sometime this week, I'll locate the library where I am staying, and go out and check it out. If I cannot check out the book, I could at least look at it while I was in the library. I think I am extremely competitive. So I would probably rate about a 95 percent on that one. Of course, like I said, I am curious to take the quiz and find out. What was the name of the book? Thank you for starting this discussion, and have a great day!

I have to say that I am very independent on most things. I do depend on my husband and my daughter for a little bit of things though. that is only because they should help out too.

yeah i think so.. i moved out from our house at the age of 20 and now i live a happy life with hubby.. i can say that i am independent when it comes to a lot of things like: i go to school all by myself when i pay enrollment fees, i can go shopping(groceries) all by myself, i can go to other places(here and abroad) without my hubby, i can solve my own problems and many more..

I am very independent in terms of decision making, travel but very dependent in terms of financial.

I'm not sure how I would test in the books quiz, but I think I'm pretty independent but it really depends on what your definition of independents is if it means someone who can take care of themselves then yes, I'm independent, but if you means someone who spends a lot of time by themselves then no I'm not a loner but I can definitely take care of myself.

i just think when it comes to the independent thing, i dont think ill on the 85 maybe lower, 20 i guess,lol..cause im family oriented type of person, its very funny and happy when im asking my parents into things that i want to do, things like that, so ill definitely fail on that one!!but in the competitive i just think ill pass on that one, and whoa on the romantic thing ill bet im in the top,lol!!happy lotting...and thanks for sharing...
