Tests love everything or almost everything, but the majority answers questions only in order that, having known the result to estimate - no, not itself, and the test: as far as the test precisely guessed that the person knew about himself and without it... Yes, tests help the person to think once again of themselves, to look on the features a little from outside but the main function of popular tests - entertainment.

" test; What you for a bird? - not boring, but it is given with other purposes here. I am afraid that somebody will begin to perceive the rules stated above and recommendations too rectilinearly, without having correlated to the features and the personal situation. The test helps to understand that there are no general recommendations that the quality decorating one person can disturb another.

It is obviously bad to swear, for example. But several people I had to learn to swear because they it were not able. And they, in their situation, needed it.


Answering questions, it is necessary to choose one from three answers. If you have doubts, choose just most under - the answer going for you. This or that answer does not say that you it is better or worse, and just that you this or that.
