    We can all fall in to the trap of self diagnosing problems as of the internet. I have foind this website which has all these wonderful probably not in the slightest bit valid personality tests. Doing psychology I am aware of the validity of questionnaires like this and that they should be taken with a pinch of salt as after all you can not make a diagnosis through questionnare results alone.

    So the point in this thread... I thought it would be fun to take a few tests and see what aspects of my personality are going to make me a psychopathic murderer etc. Yeh fair enough there may be some parts which aren't quite right... I mean I cut as a way of relieving anxiety and have taken numerous overdoses - however I just want to show people that you should not rely on these as diagnosis. If you do seriously think there is something then you should go see your doc. Also aswell if if you have been diagnosed then it will come up anyway... but what I am saying is just take them with a pinch of salt!!!!

    http://similarminds.com/locus.html - LOCUS OF CONTROL -


    Internal Locus |||||||||| 31%
    External Locus |||||||||||||||| 69%

    In the 60s Psychologist Julian Rotter developed a theory called Locus of Control of Reinforcement. His theory centered around whether someone thinks their life is more influenced by external factors like fate, genetics, luck, environment (external locus of control) OR by internal factors like effort, tenacity, and free will (internal locus of control).
    Your results suggest you tend to believe that genetics, environment, luck, fate, or other external factors define you more than internal factors like drive and free will.

    Thus, you have an External Locus of Control

    Although some things in this are right about me I wouldn;t say it is to that extent.

    Maslow Inventory Test Results

    Physiological Needs |||||||||||||||||||| 84%
    Safety Needs |||||||||||||| 60%
    Love Needs |||||||||||||| 60%
    Esteem Needs |||||||||||| 44%
    Self-Actualization |||||||||||| 45%

    Abraham Maslow authored the Hierarchy of Needs theory, stating that human beings are motivated by unsatisfied needs, and that certain lower needs have to be satisfied before higher needs can be attended to. It is debatable that needs fulfillment occurs in as linear a fashion as Maslow presents (or that Maslows needs structure is entirely accurate), but you can decide that for yourself. Also, higher needs tend to be more complex and vague in what qualifies as need satisfaction. The following results are listed in the order Maslow defined.

    Physiological Needs : you appear to have a deficiency in your basic needs. Maslow speculates that without satisfying basic needs (food, shelter, health) one cannot achieve higher levels of development. This generally makes sense, but the history of starving artists and successful artists who tanked after they became wealthy is important to note.

    Safety Needs: you appear to have adequate enviromental safety. Maslow speculates that without enviromental stability (security, safety, consistency), you can't progress to higher levels of development. Neuroscience research would appear to support this, as higher stress contributes to higher cortisol levels, which impair memory and thinking functions. However, low stress can also lead to obesity and cardiac degeneration. The lazier and weaker you become, the more stressful the most minimal tasks and stimuli become.

    Love Needs: you appear to be somewhat content with the quality of your social connections. Maslow speculates that discontentment in your connections with others stalls development. Whether the resolution of love needs comes with good relationships and/or learning to be more internally fulfilled is a question Maslow does not answer. But history would suggest many advanced minds had few relationships so this stage would seem to be more about resolving internal perceptions than as a call for measuring/achieving happiness by quality of external relationships.

    Esteem Needs: you appear to have a medium level of skill competence. Maslow speculates that until you develop a good skill set (talent, trade, expertise that you excel at) you will be unable to develop further as an individual (much less reliably support yourself financially). This could mean being a good musician, painter, doctor, carpenter, etc.. On some level this stage also requires getting over the need to be appreciated for that skill, internally and/or externally. Even if you develop a skill, you still might be hung up on the need to have other people validate you or you might internally doubt yourself. Then again, you might not be appreciated, or appreciate yourself because your skills are still too undeveloped.

    Self-Actualization: you appear to have an average level of individual development. Maslow speculates that individual development is the pinnacle of existence, this means pursuing a career/life that really fits who you are and want to be internally (not based on external and societal expectations). The self actualized person is free from superficial concerns and is internally honest.

    Considering that Maslow said you can't move through the hierarchy of needs until your most basic ones have been met I find that this test is not accurate. It is not possible to become self actualising if the lower needs have not been satisfied. So how can can I have a defieciency in my phsiological needs yet at the same time be average in self actualisation. Another thing is that very few people actally reach self actualisation. He noted only a couple of people I think Einstein possibly being one that had got to this level
