This is an interesting little quiz that will reveal how you rank values
in life.....what is important to you, from the most important.......to
the least important.
I will tell you a story, and you are to rank the order in which you like the people involved, from most liked to least liked. If you will, give a
reason why you do, or do not, like the person. This is optional, but I think if you don't, you'll regret it later on.
If you happen to know the key to the test, then I request that you not reveal it, and permit me to do so at the appropriate time. Thanks.
I still have the same ranking that I had years ago when I first took the test, so some things never change. Interesting.
