Mostly A’s - You are an Irresistibly FUNNY GIRL!
Your have an irresistible sense of humor and a contagious laugh, even if the jokes on you. Nothing sways you or defeats you, because you are secure and confident in most situations. You are good company for yourself, love life and never take yourself too seriously. People like to be near you because your good nature and positive attitude makes them feel good, too. That is unless you are teasing them again. Never a bystander and always entertaining, you have potential to be a performer and shine when the attention is on you. Be careful not to rely on jokes to cover up your real feelings. You can become funny and irresistible by putting yourself in your victim’s shoes and recognizing that humor taken too far becomes humiliation and shame. Tread careful to avoid hurting someone’s sensitive feelings. Learn to be more assertive and direct. Sometimes your jokes go too far and can get irritating so if someone asks you to stop teasing him or her, then stop. To help you understand other people’s feelings better, develop your spiritual side and look for a deeper meaning to your life. Do keep being happy and laughing with all your kindhearted humor.

Mostly B’s - You are an Irresistibly WILD FREE SPIRIT
Many people wish they had your courage and excitement. You enjoy life to the fullest. You are attracted to adventure and you love to push yourself to the limit. Your energy may intimidate more introverted and shy people, so you have to rein yourself in and calm down before you run over them. Your friends envy your tight muscles and youthful gait. Sometimes you even procrastinate just to make a task more challenging and often rush at the last minute. At parties, you have interesting stories to tell about your adventures around the country. The world revolves around you, everything you do is great according to you but you could be a bit self-centered. Your loved ones may need more attention from you and you could be letting them down. The bold risks you take may cause the people who love you to become clingy and afraid of losing you. You can increase your irresistibility factor by making a serious effort to give to others today and everyday, especially to your family and friends.

Mostly C’s - You have an Irresistibly BIG HEART.
You put others needs before your own. You are kind, giving and charming to be around. You are a treasured friend and loved by many. You always think before you act, you are reliable, prepared and want to make a good impression. Everyone describes you as nice. Are you playing it too safe? You try harder to please people just to be sure they need you too. You dress and act appropriately and sometimes seem boring. People do depend on you but often demand too much from you. However, you allow it. You are often the last one cleaning up or the first one to offer to drive on the field trip. Take time to be proud of yourself just the way you are because everyone has an equal right to this earth. To become more irresistible you must do some things for yourself, especially exercise and eat healthily. Stop being a slave to others and spend more time on looking and feeling hot for you and your partner.
