QuestionsAgree/Disagree
8
1I LOVE crossing items off my to-do list.
9
2I feel uncomfortable if I’m with someone who’s breaking a rule—whispering to me during a work presentation, or using a cell phone when a sign reads “No cell phones.”
10
3I’m usually punctual and meet deadlines.
11
4I’ve made New Year’s resolutions in the past, and I usually have good success in keeping them.
12
5If something is on my calendar, it gets done.
13
6I hate making mistakes or letting people down.
14
7It’s just as important to keep my promises to myself as it is to keep my promises to other people.
15
8I want to know what’s expected of me.
16
9It’s very important for me to make well-reasoned decisions.
17
10If I want to make a change in my life, I’ll make it right away. I won’t make a New Year’s resolution, because January 1st is an arbitrary date.
18
11Even when a decision isn’t particularly important, I often have trouble deciding, because I want more information.
19
12I get agitated if I have to wait in line.
20
13If I’m asked to do something that doesn’t make sense, I won’t do it—which sometimes causes conflicts with other people.
21
14Other people often become frustrated by my demand for information and sound reasons.
22
15It really bothers me when things are unfair or arbitrary.
23
16I like to hear from experts, but I always decide for myself what course to follow.
24
17I never make New Year’s resolutions. Why would I commit myself to do something in advance?
25
18If someone asks or tells me to do something, I often have the impulse to refuse—or to do just the opposite.
26
19I resist habits.
27
20I enjoy flouting rules and expectations.
28
21Other people often become frustrated because I won’t do what they want me to do.
29
22If someone tells me I can’t do something, I often think, “I’ll show you,” and do it anyway.
30
23People sometimes accuse me of being irresponsible or unnecessarily contrarian.
31
24I’m not particularly persuaded by arguments such as, “People are counting on you,” “You’ve already paid for it,” “You said you’d do it,” “Someone will be upset if you don’t,” “It’s against the rules,” “This is the deadline,” or “It’s rude.”
32
25I sometimes describe myself as a “people-pleaser.”
33
26People often turn to me for help—to edit a report, to take over a carpool run, to speak at a conference at the last minute.
34
27I’ve given up making New Year’s resolutions, because I never keep them.
35
28I get frustrated by the fact that I make time for other people’s priorities, but struggle to make time for my own.
36
29Every once in a while, I snap, and in a sudden moment of rebellion, I refuse to do what other people expect of me.
37
30Promises to other people can’t be broken, but promises to myself can be broken.
38
31Unless someone is enforcing a deadline, it’s hard for me to get work done.
39
32I often feel burned out, and it’s hard for me to take the time and effort to recharge my battery.
