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 expect 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 it 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'd 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 & 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. http://www.transformdestiny.com/images/hypnosis-ss.gif http://sidneymeetup.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/52/ Most common mental disorder Symptoms Common symptoms:

reacurring thought of death or suicide http://health.howstuffworks.com/mental-health/depression/questions/depression-cause-heart-attack1.htm http://students.cis.uab.edu/dr2be/WhatIsDepression.html Why? http://psychology.about.com/od/psychology101/f/four-goals-of-psychology.htm http://psychology.about.com/od/historyofpsychology/f/father-of-psychology.htm http://psychology.about.com/od/psychologycareerprofiles/p/cognitivecareer.htm Biopsychology Analyzes the brain and the neurotransmitters and how they affect our behavior

Divided into 2 parts:
Central Nervous System
Peripheral Nervous System http://psychology.about.com/od/biopsychology/a/biopsyc.htm Neurons Basic unit of nercous system and send messages from brains throughout the body Change Blindness Bystander-Effect When the brain sends message tiny synaptic junctions formed and forms memory http://allpsych.com/psychology101/memory.html http://allpsych.com/psychology101/memory.html Methods of memorization Repitition

The neurotransmitter crosses synaptic gap to reach other neurons http://teddysratlab.blogspot.com/2011/04/chemistry-pt-2-or-when-good.html

Anti-Social indicates a big fear of trusting others and getting emotionally hurt. Therefore, in a dating situation, this person will avoid intimacy as a long as possible. So, if you are dating a "game player" with anti-social y's... you might get emotionally involved and he will not. When I see this, I feel sorry for the person because he or she is unable to give and receive love easily. Again, it is a fear of being hurt. (Common after a divorce.)

Defiance. A rebellious streak. The "go to hell K". This trait is very common, but only very bad if combined with all these other traits. This would also MIGHT indicate a fear of comittment. Someone who values "freedom" very high on their "values" list.

Argumentative. This is the same stroke as aggressiveness in the lower zones. The only difference is that it is located in the letter p, which indicates VERBAL aggressiveness... or argumentativeness. Another fear of being wrong. A pain in the ass trait.

Lying. These double loops in the o indicate a fear of telling the truth. Naturally, if honesty or TRUST is a high emotional value of yours.. this is a RED FLAG you must notice. Traits http://psychology.about.com/od/nindex/g/neurotransmitter.htm Traits Stinger. Common in 40% of Americans. Signifies a need for a challenge and a deep seeded resentment toward strong members of the opposite sex. It can manifest when becoming bored with nice guys and only being attracted to disfunctional "rebel" types. This usually, but not always, indicates an unresolved issue of "love/hate" between the opposite gendered parent.

Sarcasm. Not a horrible trait alone. But this is the "hostile"defense mechanism that can "cut you" if used for covering up for real anger or deep insecurities.

Domineering/ Dominant. This is the control freak part. T-bars slanting down are a need for control Which, essentially, is a FEAR of not being in control. FEAR motivates people in strong ways. Furthermore, if the t-bar has pointed tips... sarcasm. This person will control people with sarcasm and caustic behavoir. This is the bully trait.

Stubborn. A fear of being wrong. An inability change quickly or admit they are wrong. Again, a defense mechanism for an insecure ego or damaged self-esteem. http://www.webmd.com/sleep-disorders/guide/narcolepsy http://sleepcare.com/index.php/sleep-walking-in-children http://articles.businessinsider.com/2011-09-27/strategy/30207349_1_child-psychiatrist-psychologists-doctorate-degree Psychological Testing Stroop Effect Is the brain's reaction time when there is a conflict Speed of processing theory: the brain reads words faster than it recognizes colors, so there's a lag while the brain recognizes the color. Selective attention theory: the brain needs to use more attention to recognize a color than to read a word, so it takes a little longer. http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-the-stroop-effect.htm Psychology Controversies http://lilt.ilstu.edu/vfdouga/p111%20p110%20%20stuff/notes/three_controversies.htm Mind vs. Body
Nature vs. Nuture
Free will vs. Determinism Stress Reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical equilibrium
