NoTOTALTOTAL<br />Comments<br />BMI between 15 and 19 in any column: You are already in balance. You can be analytical or synthetic depending on circumstances and needs of the situation. You are able to, both analyze a problem in great detail, as to paint the general context of this problem in a few words. Just Go On!<br />BMI between 19 and 25 in the Analytical column: You tend to dig the problem you are analyzing.

You are usually satisfied with a superficial glance, you hardly read the newspapers headlines. Details literally make you sick; you do not understand that we can waste time on such trifles.
