1. You might be gregarious, but your emphasis on doing things right can make it hard for you to adapt to new situations, and can generate into resentment or criticism toward others whose actions you might consider incorrect
2. You are inflexible and screen out any evidence contrary to your deeply held position; you not only find what’s wrong with other groups, causes or convictions—you see what’s wrong within your own.
3. You believe in finding and supporting the “one right way.”
4. You would like to reform the world
5. Because you have aligned yourself with the “one right way,” you tend to lose sight of your own personal wants and needs
6. You believe that the rules are correct, and they are different from what you feel, then you are wrong, not the rules. Instead of questioning the rules, you change your own thinking
7. You make decisions based on the morality of your choice, rather than your true desires, thus you spend your life doing what you “should” do, rather than listening to your passions and following your bliss
8. You feel old rules apply to new situations without flexibility or adaptability
9. You speak for moral tradition, but this causes in you a loss of self-awareness. You don’t see any difference between what you think and what tradition teaches.
10. You lose yourself in that equation—and take a self-righteous stance with others. After all, it’s not you who is right, but tradition.
11. Specifically, you repress, or at least significantly moderate your sexual expression, your emotional expression, your energy and exuberance
12. You have high ideals and fight for noble causes and are untiring you efforts to make the world a better place
