66-100: You are a real cool cat. Nothing can shake you. You have
a rational mind, and can think of a perfectly good explanation for
everything. A horror film leaves you cold - you can’t understand
what all the fuss is about. And as for Halloween, it’s nothing

are relatively cool, calm and collected - but you can be stirred,
even if you can’t be shaken. You take a cautious approach
to life, and don’t like taking risks. You are prepared to
admit that all might not be what it seems, but you prefer to figure
out a rational explanation for anything mysterious.
0-35: You are
