This is an interesting personality test and it is not a blog game, it is serious. I took it and it had some suggestions as to why I did not fit in with Reeducation. I am very intellectually oriented and very unconventional. I have a high level of access to feelings and a low level of neuroticism. In Reeducation one was assumed to be very conventional. Not to be was to be “in denial.” And it was required to choose between intellect and feeling. One could not possess both. And one could only prove one’s access to feeling by demonstrating signs of neuroticism.
Reeducation was purported to be professional psychology but the present test is also based upon professional psychology. I of course like this very much. What made Reeducation so difficult, as we know, is that I was too calm and too skilled at putting things in perspective. The lack of crises in my life meant I had too much control over it, and my lack of histrionics meant I was “cold.”
I had to learn to take every adversity very seriously, in order to show that I was in fact capable of feeling hurt and discouraged. The prohibition against putting things in perspective, the requirement to feel almost constant pain, and the insistence that one should take the smallest slight to heart and consider what one might have done to deserve it, made life very, very stressful.
Now I do things in my former, savage way, whether that makes me seem “cold” or not. Life is so much easier. And as everyone in their right mind knew in the first place, I am hardly cold. I am a child of Iansan and my color is red. And a genuine Psychological Test rates me High on Feeling. Hah!
