Self Respect Quiz
By Mr. Andrews

Do you respect yourself? It is very likely that you will answer "Yes." But do you really? Take the little quiz below. To be of any value to you, you MUST be brutally honest with yourself: answer with what you actually do, not with what you think you should do!  Can you do that?

OK. Read the statements on the left side and the right side in each row of the table below. If you clearly agree with either one side over the other, write a 1 in the appropriate column, "A" or "B". If you have trouble making up your mind, don't enter anything in columns A or B.

NOTE: In a "self-fulfilling prophecy" if your think that way, your brain will see to it that it will be true!

Do you just get by in your tasks?

"I are not worth the effort."

.

You make your best effort in everything you do because you want to be the best you can be.

"I want to respect myself & I want others to respect me. I am worth it!"

.

“I can’t do this!”

This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

.

“I can learn to do this!”

This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

.

You don’t capitalize your own name.

In other words, “I’m not important.”

.

Your name is an Icon that represents YOU!

The use of capitalized proper nouns is an expression of respect. “I’m important.”

.

“Its too hard!”

"I am not worth the effort it would take."

.

“This is hard, but it will be valuable to me.”

"I am worth the effort to do this."

.

You do things that hurt yourself: Such as smoking, drinking, using dope, eating too much junk food, not getting enough rest, reading or viewing trashy books or movies.

"I don't care what happens to me or my mind."

.

You consciously avoid things known to damage a person’s body or mind.

"I care very much about what happens to me and to my mind."

.

You mostly pick “fun before growth.”

"I only care about having fun. I don’t care about my own quality."

.

You mostly pick “growth before fun”

"I WANT to grow because I want to be a high quality person.

.

You spend a lot of your free time watching TV or Videos.

"I just want to be entertained. I don't care if my mind & body do not grow."

.

You spend a lot of your free time doing things that will help you develop your mind and/or body.

"My future is important to me. I want to be well prepared for the rest of my life. I want to be the BEST I can be!"

 Add up all the numbers in column 2, and subtract all the numbers in column 1, to get a total. A perfect score of +7 indicates you have a lot of self-respect. A small score or a negative score indicates you need to learn to respect yourself more. Talk with your parents and / or teachers about it.

Remember: God doesn't intentionally make junk people, but you can convert yourself into junk simply by the way you view yourself, and by the choices you make each day!
