Move! - - QUIZ - By Theresa Mur­phy

You change your hair­style. How will you ex­pect your part­ner to re­act to it? A B

Not no­tice. An­noy you by say­ing that he pre­ferred the old style. He will com­pli­ment you.


Your part­ner wants to go on a ride at a theme park. If you joined him, it would ruin your hair­style, so what would you do? For­get about your hair­style, go on the ride and en­joy your­self. Go re­luc­tantly, hop­ing you will be able to re­pair the dam­age. Let him go on the ride alone.

A B C This month your friends haven't called you to ar­range your reg­u­lar night out. What do you think? A B

That there’s a prob­lem. That they have made plans with­out you. That they’re wait­ing for you to call them.


Your part­ner for­gets your birthday be­cause he is work­ing over­time to try and save for a hol­i­day. How do you re­act? Be thank­ful that you have a great guy work­ing so hard to give you a fan­tas­tic hol­i­day. Be so an­noyed that you don't talk to him for days. De­mand an ex­pen­sive treat.


Your friend gets tick­ets to see your favourite band but she de­cides to go with some­one else. How would you feel? Men­tally cross her off your birthday present list. Feel it’s up to her to choose who she takes.


Be dis­ap­pointed but quickly get over it. While in a restau­rant, your part­ner or­ders for both of you while you are in the bath­room. On re­turn­ing to the ta­ble, would you?

Be con­fi­dent he will have or­dered your favourite. B Change the or­der. C Get an­gry with your part­ner.


You have planned to go to a restau­rant but your part­ner is run­ning late. What do you do? Wait for him to come home. Go with­out him. Call him and de­mand a rea­son why he is late.

A B C Your friend, who has a busy life­style, has hired a cleaner. How do you take this? A B C

That she is lazy. See it as a great idea. Re­alise that you would also hire a cleaner if you had a busy life. Your part­ner gives you a de­signer dress for your birthday. If a friend told you it is a fake, how would you re­act?

De­mand he shows you the re­ceipt to prove it is gen­uine. B Try to dis­cover the truth with­out con­fronting your part­ner.

Be un­wor­ried that it’s fake.

A C If you were sick, how would you ex­pect your part­ner to be­have? A B

Make a fuss over you. Oc­ca­sion­ally check to see if you need any­thing. Leave you alone to re­cover.


HOW DID YOU SCORE? 1: a.0 b.1 c.3 6: a.0 b.1 c.3 2: a.1 b.2 c.3 7: a.1 b.2 c.3 3: a.1 b.3 c.2 8: a.1 b.3 c.2 4: a.1 b.2 c.3 9: a.3 b.2 c.1 5: a.3 b.2 c.1 10: a.3 b.2 c.1 WHAT THE SCORES MEAN Be­tween 0-10 You are far from be­ing high main­te­nance. It is clear that you are self-suf­fi­cient and do not con­stantly need to be re­as­sured. When you ask some­one’s opin­ion they tell you the truth, which isn’t nec­es­sar­ily al­ways what you want to hear. But you ap­pre­ci­ate their hon­esty. You are an un­fussy per­son, who is not hard to please.

Be­tween 11-20

You en­joy be­ing com­pli­mented and flat­tered, but you don’t de­mand it. You like be­ing taken no­tice of, but are em­bar­rassed if you be­come the cen­tre of at­ten­tion. Some peo­ple mis­tak­enly as­sume you are high main­te­nance due to you oc­ca­sion­ally and un­con­sciously adopt­ing a slightly abrupt man­ner. Don’t let this worry you be­cause when peo­ple get to know you they re­alise this opin­ion is wrong.

Be­tween 21-30

There is no doubt­ing that you are a high main­te­nance per­son. You re­quire a lot of at­ten­tion, and when you don’t get it you re­act badly, of­ten be­hav­ing like a spoilt brat. Peo­ple know that they have to tip toe around you. You need to rid your­self of this de­sire to be doted on and adopt a more un­pre­ten­tious and less de­mand­ing at­ti­tude.
