Re: Predictors of a Happy Retirement

I answered "4" when they asked me whether marriages fall apart due to external circumstances. If I was (or had ever been) married and knew more about the institution, I might have chosen "6" and ended up with 42 as well 8)

33

I suspect had I taken this test at age 25 I would've scored more toward the internal. But then life throws curveballs....

Re: Predictors of a Happy Retirement

I'm sure this test is just a subtle plot by those "balanced" types.

Re: Predictors of a Happy Retirement

"scored" 36. I believe life is more about choices than luck. Although being born into a family with good genes you made a decision not to drink till you pass out every night until your liver gave up. You decided to apply for that job with all the bennies and did a good enough job to stay till retirement and get a good pension. Those were all choices, even if on a subconscious level. I believe in the universe giving you exactly what you want. The journey not be a straight shot but you get to your destination none the less.
