6 Human Needs Test

Every statement must be graded as: “No,” “Partly,” or “Yes.” Honestly grade each statement: “Yes,” for “yes, this is really me.” “Partly” for this is partly how I am,” and “No” for “This is probably not how I am.” (If you don’t know whether it applies, it’s usually best to check “no.”)
