Chip Evans, Ph.D. www.theevansgroupllc.comHOW OTHERS SEE YOU“Perception IS Someone’s Reality”INTERPRETATIONOVER 60 POINTS - Others see you as someone they should “handle with care.” You are seenas vain, self-centered, and as someone who is extremely dominant. Others may admire you,wishing they could be more like you, but don’t always trust you, hesitate to become too deeplyinvolved with you.51-60 POINTS – Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality; anatural leader, who’s quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see youas bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once; someone who takes chancesand enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement youradiate.41-50 POINTS – Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical and alwaysinteresting; someone who’s constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balancednot to let it go to their head.

They see you asclever, gifted, or talented, but modest…Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily,but someone who is extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyaltyin return. Those who really get to know you realize that it takes a lot to shake your trust in yourfriends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over it if that trust is ever broken.21-30 POINTS – Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as verycautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder.

They think this reaction is causedpartly by your careful nature.UNDER 21 POINTS – People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive; someone who needslooking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn’t want toget involved with anyone or anything.
