After you’ve finished selecting each of your answers, add up the total. Then see which section you fall into below:

Around 7 points – In Search of a Genie – While you keep your environment in good shape, it can sometimes make you feel embarrassed when visitors enter your space. You’ve wished for a genie to come and organize the areas that overwhelm you but aren’t sure how to get started. You believe that you could be more effective if you had the discipline to maintain the areas that you’ve cleaned but external circumstances such as your children or co-workers make it difficult for areas to stay organized.

Above 14 points and below 21 points – Practically Organized – You recognize the importance of organization and its a goal. While you are very busy and you try to stay disciplined it is difficult to find ways to make lasting changes. Sometimes when you have stressful situations you may find that you like to clean to feel better about things. While you feel like you’re effective, you know that there is another level of organization that you aspire to find.

Around 28 points – Movie Stars – Efficiency and speed are balanced by maintaining an environment that stays clean and fresh and net. You have a high self esteem and your environment has a tendency to reinforce that.
