    Your score is 19, on a scale of 0 (low self-monitor) to 100 (high self-monitor). You are a LOW self-monitor.

    I have the book (or one of them) -- it's a high-level psych book called "Public Appearances, Private Realities: The Psychology of Self-Monitoring" (Mark Snyder) and was just reviewing it yesterday.

    If you want a point of reference, Hustler (INTPc) is an extreme low-monitoring individual. Kuranes' recent critique thread of him there is a classic example of the extreme low-monitoring attitude.

    My score: 60

    Here is a good quote from the scoring page:
    Identity...can be seen as having two levels: an inner identity, and that identity which we present to the world. Low self monitors tie their inner and outer identity together, meaning that they show their true emotions to those around them. High self monitors hold their inner identity separate from their outer identity, meaning that they can adapt and change how others see them as needs be. In the on-line community, high self monitors are more likely to have multiple email addresses or IM accounts to help mitigate and control their appearance and knowledge about them.
    I didn't feel the test was adequate enough, only covering a subset of people who practice monitoring. But the idea is good.

    Not self-monitoring enough to want to take the test and find out!

    You think?

    It's Snyder's own test. Do you mean that he didn't do justice to his own concept?

    There is also a link to an interesting thesis--Once the test is done.

    Accept the past. Live for the present. Look forward to the future.

    (wow, I'm audacious!)

    I think it tends to equate high-monitors to types like the Enneagram Three types, for example; I don't think it pinpoints the trait well enough in people who are mixed mode.

    (I.e., either the person is a high monitor or a low monitor, according to the test. It doesn't deal well with variations in the gray.)

    But maybe that's because it is focused more on actual behavior and NOT motivation, which is my frame of reference? hmmm.
