• This test is my best shot at measuring whether you could date someone who's currently studying for a doctorate. Not whether you're smart enough, but whether you're sensitive enough to what our lives are like. I've seen relationships get strained and marriages end as a result of the pressures of grad school (with apologies to exes who ran afoul of my doctoral studies), so I think it's a good idea to know what you're getting into if you think you can date someone who's stressing out over their dissertation. I'll happily accept test revisions from people who have been through this experience. (Note: the reliability and validity of this instrument have not been tested. Results of this study are for entertainment only and will not be presented in any conference or journal. IRB procedures have been duly ignored. Sample size may vary.)
