    lisa, i have been enjoying your series a lot this week:) i’m learning a lot. it’s weird though. in the past, i tied for 7 and 9. this time i was a clear 9 but many of the downsides from the Fall and some of the others seem to come from 1. i was ver y 1 when i was young but a lot of that came from being surrounded by 1’s. i didn’t love it. when i got away from it and married away from it, i felt free for the first time. so i’m not sure how much of it was me was superimposed on me. living with what i’m guessing is a 9 for over 50 years has definitely affected me:) for the good. maybe i’m too old to take the test. i’ve been so worn down by life that the actual me is no longer there. :). (it’s not a bad thing really.)
