11. Are you a giver, a taker, or a matcher? Are there areas in your life where you act like one type, and other areas where you act like another? [Here’s the Giver/Taker Test]
I strongly prefer balanced relationships. I resent people trying to take advantage of me, which makes me completely incompatible with others who think my status is lower than theirs. If people are too giving, I get suspicious. Conversely, the circumstances where I will relentlessly pursue my own interests are those with an imbalance already in play that I'm trying to even out. If I feel that society has shortchanged me, I'll take back whatever I can. I allow some swing in a relationship because nobody's on the ball all the time. But it has to go back and forth eventually, or it's not a healthy relationship.
