Gender and Age:


SCORE KEY with Social Interaction Levels:
86-100 (Level 6): Excellent interaction skills and a great communicator who interacts very well with others. You are very persuasive and tend to make things happen. You have a warm personality, and are quick to empathise with others and appreciate them. You have an open mind and don't get into a flap easily. In fact, others might even see your confident approach as arrogant or too laid back. People are drawn to you easily but this popularity might also make you appear as a social butterfly;

68-85 (Level 5): A solid communicator who can be a bit reserved but enjoys being there for others. You are confident, dependable and caring, with a likeable personality. Though not appearing as exciting as those on the top level, you are consistent, more reliable and can take people with you. However, you do have some doubts and fears about yourself which can make you seem detached from others and rob you of influence. These fears also tend to get in the way of achieving your desires and need to be addressed to do justice to yourself.

48-67 (Level 4): You have the makings of a good communicator, and you do want to get on well with others, but you need to change some of your limiting beliefs and start to LIVE. You are inconsistent in your views and approach because you need to get rid of the fear relating to life and others and value people more. You miss out on a lot because of your needless insecurities which tend to make you more sceptical and critical of others, and this tends to rob you of allies. People can only treat you how you treat yourself, so start being more assertive and caring, and see the difference in their reaction.

30-47 (Level 3): You have some interaction skills but they need developing because you mainly think about yourself. You are often confused about where you are going because you have low self-esteem and LOTS of fears about life. You find it difficult to settle on any solid goal, hence your choices are always changing, which gives few results and makes you feel even more inadequate and insecure. Yet you want to be liked and perhaps go out of your way to seek approval too much, and this does not lead to respect from others. You need to stop telling yourself negative things, to start valuing YOU as a significant person and to think about others and their needs much more.

15-29 (Level 2): You come across as a self absorbed individual who finds it difficult to relate to others because you think so little of yourself. You are plagued with doubts and fears, you prefer others to act first and are afraid of making mistakes. Yet those mistakes help you to grow by teaching you new things. Lots of work needed on your social skills if you are to achieve your true potential and have more effect on others.

0 -14 (Level 1): You are a very fearful person, a victim type, with little empathy or care for others. Not surprising, when your confidence and self-esteem are at rock bottom. But life really isn't that bad. You won't get on with many people, or achieve much, with this negative approach. You have poor interaction skills that need an awful lot of work.

SOME USEFUL TIPS

To progress your life, you need to understand 5 main things about yourself:
1. Why do you feel the way you do?
2. Where does it come from?
3. What do you want to fulfill your life to make you satisfied?
4. How are you going to get it?
5. Which demons on your mental Battle Bridge have to be tackled to get you across that bridge to where you want to go?


Understand the following essential things about yourself:
YOU ARE UNIQUE.

But what does UNIQUE mean?

It means:
1. YOU are the only YOU that will ever exist in the history of this world.

2. There has been no other YOU. There is no other YOU now and there will be no other YOU on this planet.

3. YOU were born in your unique way, YOU are living in your unique way and YOU will die in your unique way. There will never be another YOU to go through that life process in your way.

4. YOU are different from the billions of other people who have walked the face of this earth.

According to Dr Phil McGraw: "You are the common denominator in every situation, circumstance, challenge and relationship in your life. You are either CONTRIBUTING positively to, or negatively CONTAMINATING, every situation and circumstance you are involved in. It is time to find out which of these two you are doing and how and why you are doing it. There can be no more powerful knowledge than that which you gain about yourself. Failing to know your unique self means that you cannot understand your own wants and needs, your values or your importance. You are the person with which you spend the most time and have the most invested."

In short, if you don't know and understand yourself, who will?
