THE ANALYSIS7 - 11: RevengefulYou really have a thirst for justice, and your favourite proverb could be an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth. But you are not Zorro, so you should think twice before you punish others for what they did. If you dont want to end up having no friends at all, try no to retaliate too much.
12 - 17: UnderstandingYou are a kind person but you try to make people understand where the limits are if they bother you. You dont want to be taken for a fool: you are not ready to become a Mother Teresa.
18 - 21: MercifulYou are ready to forgive anything. That is cool because you have got that laid back image and really dont want to pick up fights, and you set good examples. But some people might take advantage of your kindness, so you had better choose your friends carefully.
