32% Neurotic And Holding

A while back a friend of mine sent me this nifty link to get a personality test. I find these items to generally be entertaining rather than accurate. I would just like to point out that my friend's results showed her to be 93% neurotic, so being 32% neurotic must be fairly low in the scheme of things. Then again, this profile makes me seem about as exciting as a saltine.
