    Why should you aim for higher score? Inbred hillbillies would score high as hell.

    I already revealed here that I'm a mixed ethnicity globalist who sees no reason to aim for isolationism. Beyond that I don't see reason to specifically make clear how severe or mild my situation is.

    well a wariness around dogs would be understandable then in your case. Cats are legendary tho

    The average dog is a much better pet than the average cat, but the best cats are absolute legends and blow even the best dog out of the water. Both excellent animals though

    It's the complete other way around. Dogs are generally worse pets than cats but the best and worst dogs outshine the best and worst cats.

    Because a couple of questions forced a ridiculous range where 'none' would be a lie but the next option up would be too high etc, I had '.5' answers and such.

    I will tell you that I am approximately a solid 1 (not negative) overall. With a range of +/- 1.5 depending how you truly look at my situation and force the range upon them with the in-between answers.
