To complete each section of this inventory, check in the far-left hand column the one, two or three sentences most applicable to yourself and press select. Then in the column on the right, apportion 10 points between those sentences that apply to you: one of which you feel sums you up well while the other only applies some of the time. In this instance you could give your first choice 7 points and the remaining points to your second choice. In some instances, you might decide that there are two sentences which apply to you equally - if this is the case, award 5 points to each.
