    I scored a 57. Some of the questions didn't make sense to me, either.

    Impromtu speeches? That seems like it's more of a learned skill than a personality trait.

    I agree.

    I completely agree with this. In my particular case, though, I speculate that my excessive use of this tactic contributes to the 'ENFP-fickleness' others perceive in me and might explain why I don't see it myself. That's probably not the meaning Sub intended, though, and I'll stop here since this train of thought is potentially derailing.

    Anyway, I got 68.

    72..

    agree with Jennifer there though - I'd rather know the motivations - I doubt low monitors cannot adapt/choose not to adapt. Perhaps they could just be sticking to their own because it is the best for that situation..

    I do this sometimes.

    Your score is 29, on a scale of 0 (low self-monitor) to 100 (high self-monitor). You are a MODERATELY LOW self-monitor.

    I got the feel from a lot of the questions of having a basis either in authenticity and/or adaptability. The authenticity questions make sense in that context, but I don't see what adaptability/improvizational skills have to do with a lack of authenticity. I don't go out of my way to make people think I'm something I'm not, but I do choose to only show certain sides of myself to certain people and the questions don't distinguish on that basis, but in the sense that I'm consciously aware of what I'm lettign show through a lot fo the time, I think that would be high self monitoring.

    Self assessment...
    Work environment - very high self monitoring
    With family - high to moderate self monitoring
    With friends - moderate self monitoring
    With close and/or trusted friends - little to no conscious self monitoring (although I suspect some subconscious behaviours of that nature are ingrained in me still).
