    Yeah, I think all these psychometrics have to be taken with a grain of salt.

    For me, I certainly don't want to be seen a rebel, nor am I very comfortable with who I am.

    It is just that they frequently used the words "always" and "never" in their statements of socially desirable activities, and phrases like "there have been times", or "few occasions" in their statements of socially undesirable things. It was just easy for me to think of examples where I acted in socially undesirable ways.

    I suppose one other possibility is that I am really in asshole, and not really the nice guy I think of myself as.

    Did people really manage to be as good a person as those statements make them out to be? Like really "always ___" or "never ___"?

    they've gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the colour of my mind.

    Exactly. Especially the statements don't event involve actual external acts, just feelings or thoughts. For example, I'm really not a vengeful person, nor do I carry out revenge on folks. However, that doesn't mean that in the moment I might not momentarily wish I were that kind of person and have a momentary urge to "get even."

    Your score is 14.


    Average Scorers (9-19)

    If you scored in this range, you are scoring as two out of three people do when taking the test. Scores here represent a combination of socially desirable and socially undesirable responses. Hopefully, this combination represents a balance for you in your day-to-day behavior. It may be helpful for you to look back over the questions and think about how your responses actually relate to your true behavior in those situations.

    High Scorers (20-33)

    Your score in this range suggests that being seen as socially acceptable is very important to you. (Of course, you have to consider where you scored within this range to decide how much these statements are true for you.) Perhaps your score indicates what Drs. Crowne and Marlowe see as a need for approval from others. If so, a high level of this need for approval can adversely affect your social interactions; you may be seeking approval while presenting a distorted picture of what you’re really like. If a high need for approval describes you, you may feel frequent social insecurity, or anxiety about doing what others expect. If it’s causing you discomfort, some professional counseling may help you. Counseling can provide you with an arena for evaluating your feelings about self-worth, adequacy, and acceptability. If you are a very high scorer, you’re aware of how much energy it takes to constantly fulfill the “ideal” of social expectations. You will probably feel a lot better in the long run if you can redirect some of that energy into continued self-examination and understanding.
