235-250 points: You are selfish and mean. You will do practically anything to gain an advantage. You are cunning but not too clever. As a professional spy your bulldozer attitude will be an asset – up to a point. Your superiors in the service will find you quite useful for certain types of operations, but few of them will either like or respect you. However, being what you are, you won’t care about that. Your chances for survival are good, although it is doubtful that you will ever be entrusted with a position of major responsibility.
205-230 points: You’re a tough. You know what you want and your are determined to get it. You don’t mind employing questionable methods when the occasion needs it. At the same time you are sufficiently sensitive about your business and don’t go like a bull in a china shop. You will probably like the service and get on well with your superiors and colleagues, although you will know what you want from either. With a little luck you could easily get to the very top of the profession.
105-200 points: You are average; most people are. To a large extent you obey the rules. In the service this often presents an obstacle, although not a big one. You have strong qualities even in a profession such as ours. If you apply yourself, you may in time become a possible agent.
55 — 100 points: Let’s face it, friend, you’re a bit of a softie. No harm in that – as long as you keep out of the secret service. Should you by some chance get in, you will remain at low position. If this is what you aspire to, best of luck! We suggest, though, that you confine your interest in espionage to the reading of spy thrillers.
50 points or less: You are probably a very beautiful person, kind, sensitive, good to your mother. You believe in mankind and the United Nations. As for espionage, you have never given the matter a single moment of serious consideration – not in connection with yourself, so bless you..
