Scoring

Add up all your Yes answers and check your score.

0 to 15. You're either a very dull, boring and introverted person, or young and inexperienced. Either way it seems like you could use some more fun in your life! How about doing the test again and including your daydreams? How about putting a few of those daydreams into practice?

16 to 40. You're a normal, if slightly introverted, person who doesn't like to be too adventurous. Maybe you'd enjoy a bit more fun and adventure in your life? Perhaps you should also make a few of those daydreams or fantasies a reality?

41 to 60. I guess you're about as normal as anyone ever is. But no doubt there's room for some more fun in your life.

61 to 85. You're also a normal mortal but extroverted and adventurous or just enjoy taking risks. Or maybe you're practising to be a hedonist? You make most of the rest of us feel inadequate, so maybe you need to stop some - for our sake?

86 to 100. You're so outrageous you don't actually exist … or if you do you're an out-and-out hedonist and stunt-man. I sure hope you've got a good insurance policy! Or do you need to do the test again and be honest this time?

I wonder if anyone ever has managed to score 100 in one lifetime?
