These questions will be easy to answer, if a little time consuming. There are seven dots, each end is the complete opposite answer to the question and the middle dot is the neutral answer. Click whichever dot best describes you. For example, the first question is “How well does warm generally describe you?” One end is “not at all,” the other end is “very well” and the middle is “somewhat.” Click whichever dot you think best represents you on this scale.
