i read them with "have I EVER done/felt this way before" and actualy yes I had for a few of them, do I like to get Even... well, who doesn`t!
ever regreted saying something in anger, well no, coz I was angry and it`s pointless, and I`ve Certainly never felt suicidal about it :)

I`m Honest,,, NOT a Psychopath (as that test would have you believe) :P

Ah! See, a major difference in interpretation there. I read them as far more absolute than you did. Although, I think I still would have scored the same way.

Agreed.
They shouldn't have things like those last four questions.
Well maybe the physical one at least. People can hold back alot of anger, and it's only natural to come out somehow. Physically would be better than suicide.

uit`s right thogh isn`t it, I mean if someone insults or hurts your wife/husband or child, you`re going to hurt them aren`t you? and if their face hits your fist repeatedly as a result, well....

Justice is served :)

I've been told at work that I'm a very calm person, but I scored a 7! Anger in the closet!!

I agree with you, Alix. The questions seemed all or nothing as phrased. No grey areas. I guess I've mellowed over the years and tend to let fewer and fewer things bother me. It also didn't hurt that I nearly died in a vehicle accident a few years ago, which caused me to put things in a different perspective.

When it comes to my husband/children, yes, I do have a protective side. Sort of like a bear taking care of her cubs. Fortunately MaMa Bear hasn't had to bare her claws in a long, long time.

A 3 for me. It's a good thing I take after my dad instead of my mother.

Yep, I'm with you on that Mama Bear thing. (Oh, and the perspective gained upon realizing your mortality too) I will step up for both husband and kids and haven't been faced with the dilemma of whether or not to get physical in their defense or not. I know I would and willingly if it came to that, but thankfully only words have been necessary.

I scored a 2. I sometimes can't get to sleep if I am really upset about something (what happened, and other ways it could have played out sometimes run through my mind), and sometimes I get a queasy stomach if I am really upset.

I got a 7 too.... but, it's because I "THINK" about being angry a lot. I keep it all locked up. I guess that's a problem too.
