    Not a very diagnostic quiz. I also ended up with lots of 100s. I suspect I didn’t get 100 in math – despite a math minor and much enthusiasm for things numerical – because I answered second-from-right instead of far-right on the question about facing problems calmly. It would be interesting to see how the results come out if you take the quiz in a dispirited, hopeless mood. The questions are all about attitudes and their language is open to interpretation. I’ll try to remember to take it next time I’m having an existential crisis.

    true…i got it because of the tie-breaker.
    this quiz prolly doesn’t say much about individuals as much as it would about population agregates. the rank order is about right i think for me, though i think i scored english because i like to read…but what i usually like to read is science and history.

    It’s possible to get all 100%s. No forced choices. Also it’s all “do you like” questions. Even though “dislike” answers were possible, having overt “dislike” questions might have found different information.
    It worked about right for me, though.
