I don't like these 5 pt scales.. we should be allowed to choose 4.32894728491274823 and such as options too.. I know there is a perfect number out there describing exactly the way I act in a conflict, and I should be allowed to choose it.. Not fair, Oh Fair Butterfly.. :snooty:

But,

The best way of handling conflicts is to avoid them.

so I will avoid making an issue out of it.

And, since

Better half a loaf than no bread at all

I have answered them as best as I could (or willing to admit)

and now,

Someone who fights & runs away will live to run another day

I will run away.. :oops: :P

But how to read this? :Ksp: :think:

Oh.. I get it.. :)

for each one of those stuff, write down your scores (from your selections) and sum them up, and whatever is max, you are more akin to be that sorta person.. :D

Woww.. Vasan- nee romba buththisaali-daa.. :P :P (collar- thookki vittukira maathiri smilies illaiyaa? :Ksp: :P)..

Okie.. Mine now:

Withdrawal : (5-5, 10-2, 15-2, 20-3) = 12/20
Forcer : (3-1, 8-2, 13-1, 18-1) = 5/20
Smoother : (1-3, 6-3, 11-4, 16-4) = 14/20
Compromiser: (4-1, 9-4, 14-5, 19-1) = 11/20
Collaborator: (2-3, 7-4, 12-3, 17-3) = 13/20

I could be any one of them, except perhaps Forcer. (The force is never with me :( :snooty:)..

Any one who thinks they know how v- will react will have a sticky time.. :sm12: :sm12: I could be this, or that, or thaaaat or tis.. :wink: :P :P

Nice and confusing, pattams.. Danke Schoen.. :sm08:

(For example, under Withdrawal, 5, 10, 15, 20 kuduththu irukkanga.. so, write down your scores for situations 5, 10, 15, 20 in your previous reply). If you sum it up, that tells you how much of a withdrawing person you are. As 5 pts is max in all questions, the max for each category is 20.. :ee:
