    I got a 48.

    I was a little puzzled by the questions - it seemed they weighed heavily on more extroverted behaviors - i.e. charades, 'would you be good at acting', 'can you keep a poker face', etc. Seems rather superficial. So I'm left not knowing exactly what aspect of self-monitoring the test was trying to pinpoint.

    If two people behave identically but one is self-monitoring to a greater degree than the other, hasn't the latter simply internalized the self-monitoring? So the difference is (sub)consciousness.

    (Did that make any sense? I'm really tired.)

    Your score is 51, on a scale of 0 (low self-monitor) to 100 (high self-monitor). You are neither a high nor low self-monitor.

    Do you think self-monitoring is (/the test should be) independent of extroversion?

    I'm afraid I don't have an answer right now, and I'd have to think about it some more. I do know that prior to taking the test, I would have thought my self-monitoring would be on the really high end, because I self-monitor *constantly*.

    And I find it curious that posters who I would have viewed as being less self-monitoring than I are in fact getting higher self-monitoring scores than me!! :-) Perhaps it's just the internet environment. When we're taking the tests, we're answering as we perceive ourselves in REAL LIFE -- not necessarily how we behave or interact in a forum environment.

    ugh, I think I'm pooped too... I will get back later on that one when my brain is working again.

    (maybe I can clarify later what I have been thinking about regarding monitoring)

    But isn't monitoring all concerned about externalized behavior? Snyder is basically saying, "Do people expose themselves in a way that aligns with their inner self, or is it more important to them to present themselves outwardly in a way that brings more acceptance/control/freedom than they fear they might get if they did not wear a costume of sorts?"

    So....what is "introverted monitoring?" Is there such a thing? How would it be defined?

    Are you thinking that people might change who they are inwardly based on what occurs outwardly, masking their inner self from .... themselves? To conform with outwards expectations?

    ok... that is it for me... my ears are bleeding after THAT effort.

    I don't know... but I do perceive the same thing... many people who don't seem to be changing their outer behavior from their inner self are rating themselves as high monitors (!). I wonder if there is any correlation with type, especially E/I.

    I don't self monitor consciously but I do act differently in different groups. Mostly because different people speak about different things, so I tend to talk with them about things we have in common. None of this is done on purpose though.

    I can just barely muster the energy to link to this thread which is about what I mean. (Warning: It's one of Blackwater's. )

    So do I.

    Hope to see lots of responses when I wake up!
