This pisses me off
:rofl::rofl::rofl:

Well that puts you in a very good frame of mind for change. Much better than being apathetic.

After all you can only fix a problem if you know it exists and want to do something about it. :thumbsup:

I thought the "I believe in ghosts" question was interesting. From my experience I would say people I know who believe in ghosts tend to have an external locus of control. I don't believe in them, but I wonder how correlated the two are.

Ok, I must be feeling ultra responsible today.

I took it again. This is more accurate i think. For example, I had overrated my organization, then I thought about my house, lol.

Interestingly, I think if I'd taken this test at different points in my life, the results would skew differently. Self-employment helped skew things more internal.

Most Fastlaners have an INTERNAL Locus of Control.

Take the test and find out if you have one!

Locus of Control Personality Test

Post your results!

Internal Locus |||||| 71%
External Locus |||||| 29%
Basically are you the one taking action or are you the one in reaction? Are you a mover in life or one who reacts to the current of life? Are you the one "making the style" or are you the one waiting to be told whats "cool"?

This to me is what spirituality is for me. Having full access to your god given faculties so you feel COMPLETELY AT ONE with the universe and take action from such an abundant, intelligent place that works with the rest of the world. A little woo woo (and I really, really dont like new age stuff) but I feel the truth in this in my heart of heart.

Not entirely surprising. That ratio has certainly kept getting wider over the last 2 years.
