Class Summary - Remember when we talked about risk factors? Remember, a risk factor is something that makes it more likely that a health outcome would occur (i.e. a risk factor for skin cancer is using a tanning bed). Your personality can also be a risk factor. For example, being impulsive is a risk factor for unhealthy decision making. Remember, a risk factor does not mean that you WILL in fact have that negative health income. It can heighten your awareness so that you can adapt to the situation. Like the example of being impulsive, if you know you are impulsive you should make sure to have a decision making strategy so you don't just do things without thinking about the result. If you are an introvert, it may make it harder for you to express your feelings to another person. You may need to have a plan when you need to talk to someone else etc. Today you will be taking a personality test. The test will give you 4 letters (a letter for each category) and also a number associated with that letter. Start out by taking the 64 question test by following the directions below.

5. Click on 'score it' (Do not close out of the browser as you will need it open for information to complete the google doc)
6. Read the second slide show below. Basically for each of the 4 letters you will receive one of two letters (i.e. for the first letter you will either get an E or an I. The number stands for how strong you are with that if you have a low number, say a 1-20, it could be either letter depending on the day. If you get a higher number it probably is a pretty safe bet that that defines you. Read the characteristics for each of your letters in the second slide set below and then move on to number 7.
