Through a local contact here in Houston, TX, I've recently received
a few pieces of junk mail from the local Dianetics Center. One of
these included their infamous "Free Personality Test" which they
use to get people (raw meat) into the org to sell Dianetics to.
There are 200 questions and an area where you put in your name,
address, phone numbers, occupation, age and sex. It's too bad
they were too cheap to make it business reply mail so you have
to put a stamp on it when you mail it back to them.
Note: Any typos are likely my own.

Answer every question as to how you feel RIGHT NOW. Do
not stay too long with any one question, but answer as soon as
you understand and then go on to the next question. The
accuracy depends upon the truthfulness of your answers. Each
question may be answered one of three ways, by marking one
of the boxes next to each column:
(+) - means definately yes or mostly yes.
(m) - means maybe or uncertain. Not a definate yes or no.
(-) - means definately no or mostly no
This is a free public service and there is no obligation.
This is done with the idea that people can know and
+ m -
_ _ _ 1. Do you make thoughtless remarks or accusations which
you later regret?
_ _ _ 2. When others are getting rattled, do you remain fairly
_ _ _ 3. Do you browse throught railway timetables, directories
or dictionaries, just for pleasure?
_ _ _ 4. When asked to make a decision, would you be swayed by
your like or disklike of the personality involved?
_ _ _ 5. Do you intend to have two or less children in your
family even though your health and income would permit
_ _ _ 6. Do you get occasional twitches of your muscles, when
there is no logical reason for it?
_ _ _ 7. Would you prefer to be in a position where you did not
have the responsibilites of making decisions?
_ _ _ 8. Are your actions considered unpredictable by other
_ _ _ 9. Do you consider more money should be spent on social
_ _ _ 10. Do other people interest you very much?

I wonder how Woody, Vera and Andy Milne would answer question #1
regarding thoughtless remarks or accusations? I found question #3
to be a bit odd, as it mentions "railway timetables", something not
found much in the USA, although if you are hanging out in a
railway station, practicing OT VII while wearing your aluminum
foil hat like a good OT Scientologist, I guess reading the
railway timetable might be a nice break from placing your intentions
As far as question #6 is concerned, do Woodys count? :-)
