I decided that even though i didnt want to take the time to do this test, i was curious so i would do it anyway. the first question immediately made me change my mind, becuase he answer choices are illogical: "i prefer to do things with others rather than on my own." Answers: " Definitely agree Slightly agree Slightly disagree Definitely disagree." What!? are you kidding me? obviously the answer is "sometimes." the other answers are clearly misleading on any level. you cannot take a misleading answer and then turn it into some sort of accurate reading for any purpose, other than making a mockery of meaning. this test is stupid, and the authors are stupid.

yeah, i did... i had written a response to yours without reading yours closely enough. i started talking about likert scale tests and how they are commonly used in self-report research. then i read your comment again and realized your criticism was not about that exactly.
