Halien...based on your writings/postings....regarding leadership (lower left)
I believe you would be in Box 2
I have taken that test many years back.
Unfortunately, where I work, my manager's assessment of my personality profile is discussed in every review - Something along the lines of: "Determined driver, high empathy, tells wierd jokes that nobody gets. We think it was from the summer when he broke his leg as a kid and found his uncle's treasure trove of Mad Magazines. Trust me, give this guy a Weibul Analysis for the reliability curve for a new model launch, and he'll fold it in thirds to see if it reveals a 'half-naked woman', in his words. "
My husband acts as if the women don't exist and grabs my hand and walks away. It works with me every time although it's only happened a handful of times under the rare occasion we're at a large event, party or bar.
Scores between 24 and 34 are normal (The average is 29).
If your score is 35 or more you may be narcissistic.
If your score is 23 or less you may be lacking in self-confidence.
Bahahaha! Canít say I have ever been accused of lacking in self-confidence. Iím pretty sure that anyone who knows me would fall out of their chair laughing if they ever saw that one. LOL
OK back to the original subject.
What I generally do for example, is say you are in a bar and you are getting pretty obvious looks from across the bar is to just tune them out and pay attention to wifey exclusively. It gets the point across pretty easily and you get style points with the wife because she knows whatís up.
If itís a situation where things are face to face, I try to avoid flirting and keep things low key and friendly. I wouldnít appreciate seeing wifey flirting with someone else in my presence so I imagine it would probably be the same for her.
This is just dating 101 if you ask me. Married or not.
Insult myself? I'm too stuck up for that =/
Unless it's someone I know and cool with and I don't want to offend them and if they are being too forward. Insulting them though... heh I don't do that no more. Nor trying to scare the sh-t outta them (ridicolously that managed to get me laid even back in the day from time to time)
Still remember when I was younger before I met my wife, I had these lady on the opposite lounge just staring and fluttering. I just ignored her, but she kept at it, and I guess she thought I was shy... until I just looked her dead in the eye and yelled "WHAT THE F--K ARE YOU STARING AT?!"
Heh reminds me too of my first, though if I didn't push back the "harpies" (my ex just called them sl-ts, wh-res, b-tches, etc, harpy is a term my wife uses), she would beat the flying f--k outta them. She fought better then most men too as a trained kickboxer lol, funny times.
Hell now I feel old...
I even insulted a woman who later married my BIL, and my wife got mad at me for being rude
Damn sometimes I hate this small world!
For me I just feel it, and I always trust my instincts. I guess I look at my instincts as "sh-t that logic has missed"
I'm a social person and I'm naturally inclined to respond to anyone in a friendly manner. Honestly, I don't notice men hitting on me and don't believe they are. I do think my husband is a little over reactive. They might start up a conversation or whatnot but I've never had a guy blatantly ask me something that told me he was hitting on me.
If my husband is uncomfortable he'll intervene and I'll follow his lead out of respect for him. He does tell me he's worried about me attending a lot of work events lately but, contrary to his belief, I've not been handed phone numbers right and left. Durrr.
He has no problem telling me I'm naive or overly friendly, tells me I should stop expecting the best from people and assume they're all good. Then lectures me on how I don't understand men or get what they're after.
