Their result for The Normalcy Bias Factor Test ...

You have an Average Normalcy Bias Factor

43 Normalcy!

Nothing wrong with that!  More than likely, you are some one who has their routines, but are more than capable of handling lifes little emergencies.  You tend to assume that tomorrow will go more or less according to plan, but if it doesnt it probably wont throw you into a panic.  People in this range have probably planned for the most likely emergencies they can think of.  They dutifully buy adequate insurance, check the batteries in thier smoke detectors, and keep the Dept of Homeland Security's reccomended three days of food and supplies on hand just in case.  As a cautionary note,  in a more extreme emergency,  or something you haven't planned for,  there is a risk that you may enter what psychologists call 'dissociative shock'.  You've seen people like this on TV after a disaster,  with blank stares waiting for some one to tell them what to do.  To avoid this, try to focus on the things you can do yourself to improve your situation, and be pro-active!  It might be the difference that can save your life!
