Take the are you Proactive or Reactive Quiz!

I found this quiz online from selfgrowth.com, but it was a bit difficult to read, so I thought I’d recreate it here so it is easier for you to complete! It should only take a few minutes, and is a great way to self-reflect!



1. Answer the following questions by writing down the number that best represents you. Be as honest with yourself as possible!

2. Add your numbers up and total them. 

3. See scoring sheet at end of survey – don’t peak until you’ve finished each question. If you do peak, subtract 5 points from your final score.
