    These results are basically invalidated by my very high "Backside F" score (indicates "faking" on the second half of the test) and mildly high of the other faking scors. To be fair, I took breaks throughout taking the test because it is so freaking long.

    I am unsure what the "repression" score indicates.

    Edit: Ok, I am using Mal+'s source to interpret the values.

    It's not faking per se, the second half of the test repeats statements from the first half. If you put false the first time, and true the second time for the same question, then that throws the entire test into question, but if you took the test over a period of time, then I don't know - perhaps you have an unstable sense of self-identity.

    Well, the thing is that the questions aren't simply repeated...they're worded differently. I treat the meanings as slightly different depending on the wording of the question. So then I end up not always answering the "same."

    Also do you know what "repression" is supposed to mean?

    I just answered and interpreted a jillion questions to hear what my mother could have told me in a minute's phone call: that I am too hard on myself. Sincerity is high, but pathology reported is unrealistically dismal.

    If I were to be trusted: I am an oversensitive person who populates her world with self-fulfilling anxious hazards. I repress my aggression and would benefit from getting in touch with my dominant side. Yeah, these are accurate to the things I criticize myself on the hardest, but at better times, I do realize that while my concerns have some basis in reality, I am not nearly that weak on a regular basis or in people's eyes other than my own. So: test worked fine for me.

    Repression is the forcing of undesired emotions out of consciousness so that they are never experienced. Repression leads to somatic complaints (that is, physical problems such as headaches and stomach aches), as well as behavioral changes (for example, hoarding).

    Into everyone's life a little rain must fall, but these people have that constant cloud overhead keeping them wet and downtrodden, and it seems like nothing will ever fix it. And the longer you hang out with them and interact with them, the more you realize that their position in life seems to be a solid 30 percent bad luck and 70 percent self-inflicted bullshit.

    Well that's really odd then, considering I only remember picking one somatic "symptom" and maybe one or two behavioral "symptoms."

    Those would be in their own category. I think there's a key somewhere indicating which statements indicate repression or whatnot.
