Take the test again and answer as the old Agnishom would have.

Well, for one, 65 isn't correct.

65 is a person? That is a funny name for a person.

Re: Try this personality test.

It is a nickname, I suppose. Agnishom used it to refer to the person.

Yes, I remember that. He removed that from his signature.

Is it not super late there?

Re: Try this personality test.

Depends on how you look at it. It is both very late and very early.

I think she is wrong about the quote in Agnishom's signature.

Re: Try this personality test.

If I remember it, went something like this.

If a habit can change why can't a person.

Do I have the right one?

Re: Try this personality test.

That's the one. It's still in Agnishom's signature, so there was no need to remember it.

It comes with the age. You shoukd borrow an eagle.

When I think about it, I might have given an incorrect answer to Q65.

The questions are ambiguous but they are designed to be that way.

Re: Try this personality test.

Yes. I know people who changed their habits. I hope to do it myself soon.

Funny thing, I do not agree with any part of your signature. smile

Re: Try this personality test.

The question Why can't habits actually reffers to the fact that habits can be changed

Re: Try this personality test.

It sounds very differently. Is as if she is asking Why can't a habit be changed if we know that the person as a while can?
