  • 10. 
    What is your usual laundry routine?
    • A.

    When you can't sleep at night, what do you do?

  • 13. 
    Who cooks the meals at your house?
    • A. 

      I cook all the meals. Nobody else knows how to cook as well as I do, and they wouldn't fix the right things.

    • B. 

      I volunteer to cook sometimes, even if it's just something simple.

    • C. 

      I never cook. I snack and forage, eating in my room or in front of the TV, even if dinner is being prepared. I usually don't like the stuff they are having anyway.

    • D. 

      I never cook, but I'm not picky. I wait until dinner is prepared and usually like what we are having.

    • E. 

      I plan and cook all the meals. When I shop, I have planned the menu for the entire week, and I have a specific use for each item in the kitchen, so I'd rather not have somebody else cook, but it would be nice if they would offer to help occasionally.

  • 14. 
    When you are watching TV, and there are other people in the room, what do you do?
    • A. 

      Watch my favorite shows back-to-back, even though I know other people are not enjoying them.

      What grooming tasks?

    • B. 

      I always do these tasks in private, in the bathroom, then clean up afterward and put away my mess.

    • C. 

      Usually I do them in private, but if I'm watching a TV show, I might do them in that room.

    • D. 

      I pick and cut my toenails in the living room, no matter who is there, and leave the clippings for somebody to catch with the vacuum cleaner.

    • E. 

      I can't stand it when people do that in front of others. The sight of toe jam and clipped toenails makes me sick.
