Click on 1 if you think ‘no way’ or ‘really not,’ and click on 5 if you think ‘absolutely’ or ‘that’s me!’ For everything in between choose 2, 3, or 4. The test works best when you answer spontaneously. Just go with the flow. The best part is, there’s no right or wrong, everything is okay. Have fun!
