In a lot of ways I think the people who go take tests like that are
self-selected. But I also agree with what Ling said, the questions
are funky (how's that for a scientific critique?). There are several
I'd like to choose more than one answer for and a couple I want a
NONE option. For some reason I took it twice and I know I didn't
score the same both times because of things like that. It wasn't
widely different but enough to notice.
