I was reading the others results and was thinking that my results weren't good, and then i said to myself : "i don't give a shit, this test doesn't determine what i'm capable of", i think i progress ..!

Awesome test, but it was kinda mind boggling to me the question about affirmative action programs... coming from a developing country with gigantic rates of social inequality, I still believe that some, if not much of your success comes from your environment. Most people here wouldn't even speak english to be in contact with the Unscripted philosophy, but even if they did, our horrible public educational system has already made them believe they aren't capable of much. I believe and practice as hard as I can to be accountable, but I must also be empathetic.

Believing in fate is kinda romantic.

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.

I understand what you mean here, the feeling of being completely at one and taking action from that place has a level of execution unlike any other.

I don't think many people get to experience this state, I'm not sure.

I wasn't very surprised at my result. Much of my life's experience has been of my own design and of my own choosing, for better or for worse. That's why at 40yrs old I'm still as motivated and determined to succeed as I was when I was 20. The only difference is, at age 40, I'm much more aware of my own choices and actions, and how they echo into the future. At 20, I was in control of my path, but lacked the accumulated wisdom that comes from experience, to always make smart decisions. I missed a lot of great opportunities, but it's my fault and no one else's.

Same results here.

Unlucky or bullshit, it is really incident dependent.

If someone opens a F and B business right before Covid and had to shut down the business with loss, well it is 95 percent bad luck to me.

If someone tells me because of lock down he is gaining weight Because he is not able to exercise and therefore blames covid for it, that sounds like 95 percent bullshit to me.

If the test has more context on the attitudes it would make more sense.

And in term of actions taken, it does not have to be mutually exclusive. I know some people who work their a$$ off but still take the effort to layout the fengshui and crystals formations at home.

60/40 internal/external. But then I’m ambivalent about ghosts, fate, and superstition :)
