How to test yourself for selfish

Traditionally love is opposed to hate, but there is a view that the right thing would be contrasted – selfishness. It’s a normal and natural trait of a person, to varying degrees. The hitch is just to this very extent, and to define it (or at least reflect on the scale of one’s own selfishness) a short psychological test is offered.

The

main questions are only two, with options to answer (there are no right and wrong answers, there are honest and dishonest). These questions make up the main body of the test. And below are given the so-called control questions, for them there are no options to answer and do not necessarily answer them, especially – the questions are not of pleasant ones.

So, introductory to the first question: there is a real friend, and for his sake you are ready for everything. But here he continued to be friends with you, became friends with someone else.

Your position:

1. “I will oppose. My friend should only be with me.”

2. “I won’t disturb them and step aside.”

3. “It’s glorious, the more on earth friends the better.”

You can refine the answers depending on the following specifics:

a) thecase is safe: you objectively are not worse from it, because you still have a friend;

b) the case dysfunctional: your friend is glorious, he now has two real friends, and you began to miss him…

Introductory to the second question: you have a favorite (with a capital letter and so on), and for the sake of it you are ready for everything, especially since you are loved. But your beloved turned out to be so rich in love that, without loving you, I began to love some good man.

Your position:

1. “I will oppose. My favorite should only be with me.”

2. “I won’t disturb them and step aside.”

3. “It’s glorious, the more on the land of love, the better.”

You can refine your answers depending on the following specifics:

a) thecase is safe: you objectively are not worse from it, because you still have a favorite;

b) casedysfunctional: your favorite is glorious, it is loved at once by two, and you began to miss it…

The test questions are provocative, and it’s so intended. Because the setup is obvious, it is not easier to answer questions.

Control issues:

1.$ Where do you harass a person dear to you more — as a friend or as a loving person?

2. Who better person be there for you — your friend or loved one?

It is best, of course, to take this test in a pair, with a friend or with a loved one, but practice shows that it will only be useful if safety is followed, namely: when discussing it is prohibited accusations of selfishness, prohibited exclamations in the spirit of Brazilian-Mexican TV series, prohibited standard reactions (“That is, if you have someone, I should rejoice?!”).

The constructive and fun approach, the attitude to the test – like traveling to a country with a never-before-seen way of life is welcome.
