As for our individual tests that is a whole other ball game. There were questions like “Have you ever felt like you wanted to kill yourself? Do you think people are watching you? Do you sometimes need to take something to cope?” Going through the test hubby at one point said “Paranoid much?” and we both had a giggle. But, then there were the other questions that caused me to feel rather confused. For instance “Are you sometimes scared of your own thoughts or ideas?” and I had to sit there and think about it. Sure sometimes when I am driving and a taxi cuts me off I imagine it veering off the road and bursting into flames. But does that qualify?
Finally, I would get bored and eat some breath mints. Sure, my thoughts can be scary and super judgmental at times but that is called being imaginative. Having a lively imagination is what enables me to get through some rather dreary shit and helps me take a break from analytic thinking and keeps me creative. Without creativity my soul would wither and die. You don’t want my soul to die? Do you? If you do then you are an asshole! And this was basically my train of thought throughout answering most of the questions on my first psychometric test.
Child safe is like animal safe just cleaner, more restricted with pool nets, child safe drawer locks and making sure there are no sharp knives lying around or razor blades or crack pipes on the carpets. Personally, I believe that if we could bunny proof our house then child proofing will be a breeze. Then after what I believe will be a thorough inspection, our marriage psychometric tests will be discussed with us. This too should be interesting. Mostly for our social worker I presume.
