About This Quiz

It's not good to be a doormat in this world. After all, if you don't take credit for your ideas, it's very hard to advance in your chosen field. If you constantly put yourself down — whether out loud, because you think it makes people like you, or in your head because the bullying demon on your shoulder is just a lot louder than the encouraging angel — that negative thinking can become a habit that is very hard to break. Eventually, if you keep telling the world you're not worth anything, people might believe you, and take advantage accordingly.

On the other end of the scale, however, some people are quite convinced that they are the proverbial bees' knees. They often don't have much of a resume to back this up, or they're relying on things that don't really matter, like living in a fancy house or being conventionally good-looking. Sometimes they're financially successful but come from a background where this wasn't actually the hardest thing in the world to achieve. These are the people who the rest of us call superior, and we don't mean literally.

It's great to be proud of things you've worked for, but there's never a good reason to look down on others, be ungracious or to lack humility. If you're in danger of heading down that slippery slope, it's important to know so that you can get a few people in your life — and hopefully, a little voice of warning in your head — to point you back in a healthier direction. As with so much in life, the key is finding the right balance! Let's see if we can help you identify where you are on the scale, so you know which way balance is for you!
