0-10. In a crisis you would be cool and calm. You would survive accidents, hijacks and fires. You’re a real survivor because you always think of yourself first. However, perhaps you would have more friends if you thought more of other people.
11-18: You would stay calm in most crises and you would probably survive. But you would also try to help other people and you would risk your own life. A true survivor would only think of herself or himself.
19-25: You aren’t really a survivor. You’re too emotional. In a crisis you would panic too easily. If you panicked, you wouldn’t be able to think clearly.
26-32: You aren’t a survivor at all. In a crisis you would try to be a hero. If someone attacked you, you would defend yourself to live to fight another day.
