    I got a 12. I suppose I'm always avoiding conflict whenever I can, and it pains me to see people in conflicts. Sensitivity, however, does little to help you survive in a world where you can get trampled on for even being the slightest bit passive or compromising. It's sad, really.

    I scored a 9% which I think is pretty accurate. I do tend to be a bit of a caregiver. It's been difficult, but I've worked a long time on being more assertive and valuing my own judgments. I recently retired from 30 years in a position in state service where I occasionally needed to challenge actions taken by staff on some cases. I received more than 100 comments from colleagues state-wide who appreciated the way I worked with them. My point is that each of us can enhance how we use who we are and grow in many areas. I am currently an Independent Catholic Bishop so a 9% works pretty well there too.

    I scored about where I thought I would 45. I was not ruthless enough to stay in a management job in the top office of a corporation. I had to quit after a few years on humanitarian grounds.

    Though your conscience is in the right place you also have a pragmatic streak and generally aren’t afraid to do your own dirty work! You’re no shrinking violet – but no daredevil either. You generally have little trouble seeing things from another person’s perspective but, at the same time, are no pushover. ‘Everything in moderation – including moderation’ might sum up your approach to life.

    I scored 88% I have always known I had traits that allows me to figure out very quickly after observing or listening to a person what their next step is going to be. I am right 8 out of 10 times.

    Wow I scored a 73%, lock your doors people. Just kidding. Fascinating how accurate the assessment of myself was.

    I scored a 12. Says, I need to watch out for people on the high end. Too warm and fuzzy I guess.

    I literally scored 79% Whay does that mean? Am I almost a nutball?

    I received the score of 24%. Pretty interesting & accurate. I would be interested to hear the explanation on the importance of those questions and what the answers specifically say about a person... I mean despite the obvious of not being bothered by seeing animals being tortured.

  17. Nick

    I'm crazy! (For Anderson...) But apparently for real too... I scored 73% !! The paragraph that followed the score was spot on. I found it interesting that most psychos like fish... Haha.

    I misunderstood stuff and decided to change my score. Got a 36% this time. I am still sensitive but not a pushover,anymore.

    Scored 21. Very interesting, and I've often said most of our leaders are psychopaths, only to find out on Ac360 I was right.

    LOL! 27% I don't know if that's good or bad

    I am 15% psychopath. I was surprised at the typical results – 38% for women and 50% for men. Feeling pretty good about myself now!

  23. RENEE

    I SCORED A 21%. I DO BELIEVE ENVIRONMENT/NUTURE IS GREATER THAN HEREDITY BECAUSE ....IF MY FATHER WOULD TAKE THIS TEST I AM SURE HE WOULD SCORE A PERFECT 100%...SO, I GIVE CREDIT TO HAVING MY FAITH AND BELIEF IN JESUS CHRIST AND TO THE NUTURING I DID RECEIVE.

    I scored a 0, which does not make a wonderful life...I need to have a bit of psycho.

      I also scored a zero but have had an interesting and wonderful life. I've had people in my life who would score high on the psychopathy test, but I refuse to let them manipulate me and allow them only a minimal role in my life, if any. Generally, I avoid them and surround myself with warm, positive people.
