Women and Relationship Quiz 

The purpose of the quiz is to find the quality of relationship you have with yourself.  The more in tune you are with your authentic self, the healthier you are emotionally.  Another purpose for the quiz is to help you notice the difference between doing and being. 

Healthy relationships are about being-in-relationship as opposed to doing-a-relationship, or testing-a-relationship. 

Check off the answer that feels right to you.

1.    When you feel unhappy, do you:  

a)    Distract yourself with shopping, busyness, work, or the problems of others.

b)    Take a moment to sit still and admit to yourself how you are feeling…..and then decide how you want to hold your feeling as you go about  the day.

 2.   When you hear feedback about yourself that is less than stellar (especially from someone you trust), do you: 

a)    Dismiss the comments.  Find fault with the person who is sharing their thoughts with you.  Change the subject.

b)    Get curious.  Ask for more feedback to understand the impact of your behavior on others, as well as, perhaps yourself.

 3.    To practice the power of feminine presence, do you:

 a)    Tell others what to do.

b)    Pause.  Observe.  Then, wait for the right moment to give your input.

 4.     If you are single and dating, do you:

a)    Tend to fill in the conversation gaps while on dates.   Make excuses for men who have poor follow through habits.

b)    Trust that relationship is a two way street and it is not your job, alone, to fill in conversation gaps.   Realize men are responsible for their behavior and what you see is what you get.  

If you are married, or in a serious relationship, do you:

a)    Get angry, resentful and blaming when your partner isn’t the way you want him to be.

b)    Allow yourself to feel upset.  Then, work towards accepting the limitations of who your partner is and make peace with it.  Realize you    have a choice to stay or go.  

 5.  When it comes to receiving a compliment you longed to hear, do you:

a)    Shy away and act like you didn’t hear it. Verbally downplay the kind words to avoid attracting too much attention and or feeling vulnerable.

b)    Say “Thank you.”  Fell the inner expansion.  Allow yourself a moment to bask in the warmth of kindness.  

Answers:

Notice how many times you checked off the answer a) and how many times you checked off the answer b).   The a) answers are all associated with behaviors that indicate a lack of relationship with your core self.  They are in fact very much associated with defended, self­-­protective behaviors.  Answers b), on the other hand, indicate a strong bond with your authentic self.

The more b) answers you checked the more you are checked in with yourself.  You are inner directed as opposed to outer directed when it comes to doing what is right for you.  You are thus overcoming one of the challenges to women finding their voice.  

When it comes to understanding the difference between doing and being in relationship, think:

Do your makeup.  Be Yourself!   

To practice feminine presence, look to the suggestions found in answers b).
