I Should Be A Therapist!

Okay, you can stop laughing now, even though I agree with you that the title for this entry is rather amusing. This quiz is made even more hilarious if you knew the reason for my partial hiatus from my blog.

Anyway, feel free to share your results and comments on this quiz below the fold.

You Are 85% Grown Up, 15% Kid

Your emotional maturity is fully developed, and you have an excellent grasp on your emotions.
In fact, you are so emotionally mature – you should consider being a therapist!

    I’m also a therapist, probably a better one than you (90/10).

    I didn’t like the quiz at all (and not because it gave me only 44% of kid-ness). Three or four questions combined two assertions, making an answer impossible. “When you are angry with someone, you don’t hold on to it. You make your feelings known and then move on.” What if I’m never angry with people? I can’t remember the last time that happened! “Rejections in your life have definitely hurt, but you have always been able to move on from them quickly.” Same thing: I disagree with the first part, but the answer applies to the second (which would be irrelephant!).

    I’m 76% grown-up. The test seems to assess for stoicism, which is not the same as maturity.

    72%grown up. Is that a C- ? Was ex-wife’s diagnosis of my alleged extended adolescence correct? Law school professors say the questions are more important than the answers.
