Obviously I had to use a lot of imagination to answer, but I tried to base how I *would* treat a hypothetical spouse/child on concrete indicators, such as how I treated college roommates or past boyfriends, or how I treat my students or nephew, etc. Ah...I probably took the silly thing a bit too seriously.

3) I admit I'm amused at having learned a new meaning of the word "congress" from this quiz.
