Confused / Confusing

This is the middle category, and the most difficult to describe. After a few thousand test takers, I found there were two main groups of people who fell into this category. The first group were people who skipped questions. The way the scoring works, you really need to answer all the questions and futhermore not choose the same choice twice in a group of four. To those people who filled out the test correctly and scored here "for real", let me apologise for having to wade through the comment about the incorrect testers. Unfortunately the "error group" seems to outnumber you by a considerable margin.

With only 16 questions, I really can't tell the difference between not having strong feelings (apathy) and having strong feelings in balance with each other (ambivalence).  I wonder which describes you.

Among those people who score here for real, there is an overwhelming disproportion of young people. OKC divides the stats into the 19&under bucket, then 20-24, and so on. Well over 90% of the people who scored this category (other than those in the "error group") are under 24, and the proportion of 19&unders is even higher. This is the most common category with room to spare for those under 24, and the rarest category for those over 30. For you statistics geeks like me, this is two deviations above the mean(under 24), compared to one and a half below (30 and up). The most common job is "student" and the most common major among the students is "undeclared"

I also get lots of reports from the more eloquent members of this age group that they could easily have ordered their choices differently. My theory is that the questions I've asked are based on feelings of what is important, and that those feeling get reinforced by experience. Many of the younger test takers just haven't fixed their opinions and values on those subjects, so the test doesn't measure them.

As for the older (40+) test takers who score this category (without being in the error group), you are overwhelmingly significantly less likely to have had children, but I haven't been able to pin down much beyond that.  Sorry.
