Here is a Typical Test: The recruit is sleeping out in the woods. An armed ‘enemy’ approaches the sleeping man. The long haired man is awakened out of his sleep by a strong sense of danger and gets away long before the enemy is close, long before any sounds from the approaching enemy are audible.

Self-Centered: This personality type is high in extraversion and low in openness, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. You’re less likely to fall into this type as you get older. This is your garden-variety Samantha.
