Now add up the total number of points from the 10 questions. 

OVER 60 POINTS:   Others see you as someone they should "handle with care."  You're seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don't always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.

51  TO 60 POINTS:   Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality, a natural leader, who's quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will  try anything once, someone who takes chances and  enjoys an adventure.  They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate. 

41  TO 50  POINTS:   Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting, someone who's constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head.  They also see you  as kind, considerate, and understanding, someone who'll always cheer them up and help them out.

31  TO 40 POINTS:  Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful &  practical.  They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest.  Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who's extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return.   Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

21 TO 30  POINTS:  Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy.  They see you as  very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.  It would really surprise them if you ever did something  impulsively or  on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle  and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful  nature. 

UNDER  21 POINTS:   People think you are shy, nervous, and  indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who  always wants someone else to make the decisions  and who doesn't want to get involved with anyone  or anything! They see you as a worrier who  always sees problems that don't exist.   Some people think you're boring.   Only those who know you well, know that  you aren't.

FYI:  Phil's score = 55, Oprah's score = 38.
