    I'd say they're more reflective of a need to reinforce a given image you have of yourself.

    Honestly, if you want a good idea of who you are, talk to other people. Imo. Preferably ones you trust and don't have some funky agenda to push.

    omg lol!

    Gul, I would have answered these questions the same 5 years ago dude.

    I think you may be projecting your own motivations on me.

    Also I'd suggest following your own advice.

    Mybad, I said that completely forgetting what we discussed yesterday.

    But still, I think that test is overly positive, and I'm reacting against that.

    it is. In fact I'm pretty sure that's the point of it.

    However it doesn't much follow the barnum effect.

    For instance I reacted very strongly against the questions about gratefulness.

    My ESE mom who showed me the test, got very different results than me.

    So I dont think barnum counts in this circumstance.
