I don’t know much about Mister Doctor Phil. What I do know is that he’s some shrink who appears on TV and perhaps gives randoms counseling whilst a room full of people and a camera look on. As I said. I don’t know much on Mister Doctor Phil.
But I know enough to rage at him.
Around this time lat year my Christian studies teacher gave us all a quiz that said doctor had constructed. As he is a shrink I supposed that everyone believed that the answers they received were 100% correct because they’re like that.
And I have evidence. If I had gotten a result that said that I would punch some random on the street, my friend would agree. If it had instead said that I would pick flowers and give them to a random on the street my friend would agree. If it had ignored all scenarios and said that I would dig a hole, stick my head in it and then play rubber duckies my friend would agree.
So when I got my answer and my friend instantly agreed that it sounded like me, I obviously didn’t take her seriously. (And if you think that this will lapse into a story about how I now take her seriously and agree with her let me tell you I do not. She is still completely, utterly wrong.)
Anywho, a couple of days ago I was lying in bed (everything comes to me when I’m lying in bed. Screw showers. All I can think about in them is how much soap I’m getting in my eyes), and I was pondering on the quiz that we did and whilst lying in my bed realised my position. And then I realized that answer that I had given once before. And the I realized that I would most definitely have to do the quiz again.
(If you didn’t get all that, I had chosen that I sleep with my covers over my head. Now, I only do this when I’m taking a nap or I’m cold because my blanket can’t even stretch all the way to cover my head, and I have no intention on pulling it out so I can do so. I actually sleep on my side, slightly curled [or straight out, on my side, with my hand on my neck and under the pillow. But that’ irrelevant because that option wasn’t available]).
So I did the quiz again.
And got the same result.
(Another Note: I didn’t just change that one question. I changed a lot of them. Because I’m a year longer and my temper is now very short. So, don’t interrupt me when I’m working hard).
This was my result. Two years running:
“Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.” Score: 25.
I am not careful. I may be fussy, but that’s only on some occasions when I’m feeling a tad OCD, and I usually always do things on the spur of the moment and will always say and do things without thinking them through first (unless I planned the scenario. And then it never works out my way), I don’t examine things from all angles (unless it’s a book, then I have to check whether or not it has any marks on it. I’m fussy over my books. Nothing more).
I also browsed the other answers and I found that none of them match me at all. But then again they are my friend’s perspectives. But then again my friends tell every single person we come across that I’m evil before I even open my mouth. (Do not ask the story. I keep pins in my shirt for a very specific reason). And so I figured that I can rage on about Mister Doctor Phil because he is absolutely wrong. If he was a good doctor he would at least give me the option of sleeping straight, on my side, with my hand on my neck and under my pillow.
So that sums up how I got to the conclusion that I don’t like Mister Doctor Phil very much at all. Never trust a shrink that gives therapy to people in a room full of people and a camera.
You guys can also test out the quiz and see what (obviously wrong) answer you will get. Here: http://psychcentral.com/personquiz.htm
And if you do complete the quiz please tell me what you got and whether or not you feel like that’s you.
