I am human, and like everyone else, am complex and sometimes inconsietent. If someone want to "test" my personality, or faith, or qualities, or anything else, AND they want an honest answer, I would suggest that the boundaries be enlarged.
My comment, I realize, is a bit on the oblique side, but I'm curious if anyone else has felt that they were unable to express their true responses, and therefore felt completely misunderstood. Any lawyer - in fact, anyone who ever watched a court drama - knows that "leading the witness" is grounds for objection, often vehement.
Welcome to the forums Maura - where you can ask the questions you want answered - and leave them as open ended as you would like. But I think that you will find that many of the "standaradized" questionnaires here on CM are designed to offer standardized answers in order to run them through standardized algorithms for results.
I am not aware of any of them being mandatory that they be filled out here on CM - though I may be mistaken. They are tools - that some find useful, some find annoying, and some just completely ignore from what i have seen.
There are many aspects of the site that some members of CM disagree with, while others enjoy - much like anything in real life I would imagine - a common or even close consensus I would imagine is almost impossible - and as such is always a topic of discussion here on CM as to what works and what does not.
Think of it like a kitchen drawer - there are some tools that have probably been in the back of the drawer that you never use - some that you use all the time. While one might use a butter knife to butter some bread - I am more likely to use it to tighten a flat head screw that is loose if I can not find a screw driver. The tools available here are used in many different ways by many of the members from what i have seen.
