    Well I only chose those three words because I associated them with Lady Macbeth.

    Bugger. I knew there might be a problem like that. I came up with the same words, but after having already read the start of the report.

    The importance of representation.
    Not a rule, just a trend.

    IEI. Probably Fe subtype. Pretty sure I'm E4, sexual instinctual type, fairly confident that I'm a 3 wing now, so: IEI-Fe E4w3 sx/so. Considering 3w4 now, but pretty sure that 4 fits the best.

    Yes 'a ma'am that's pretty music...

    I am grateful for the mystery of the soul, because without it, there could be no contemplation, except of the mysteries of divinity, which are far more dangerous to get wrong.

    I got "WASH," "SHOWER" and "SOUP." If this is one of those puzzles where the two added letters have to be the same for each word, then I'm stumped.

    WASH! SHOWER! SOAP!

    I just thought it was a puzzle where you have to find three related words, I swear!

    I saw people's responses before I saw the test, so I'm already biased

    Even if you were influenced by the article title\contents, you could do two of the other experiments in your head (as long as you don't allow yourself cheat, whether consciously or not ).

    "They asked each person to copy a first-person short story, where the protagonist either helped or screwed over a colleague." and

    "They asked two groups of people to remember a good or bad deed from their past."

    I believe I would have copied the story with the protagonist helping a colleague, and that I would probably have remembered a bad deed from my past if asked.
