Cranky Quiz # 1: Compressed Time (chapter 2)

Scoring the Cranky Quiz

Score 1 point for every yes and 0 for every no. Count a sometimes as a yes. Add your total: 3 points or less (Cool) means you're in good shape, 4 to 7 (Warm) indicates a need to slow down, and 8 to 10 (Hot!) indicates a raging cranky infection. You'll find anti-cranky solutions for each Quiz item in this chapter.

  1. ___ Do you feel hurried and rushed every day, always busy yet always behind, with no real relief in sight?

  2. ___ Do you get annoyed at long lines, time-consuming transactions, traffic bottle necks, flight snafus, and so forth?

  3. ___ Are you so busy that you skip or hurry through meals, and have trouble finding time to exercise or have fun?

  4. ___ Do you expect the people around you to speed up to your pace rather than you slowing down to theirs?

  5. ___ Do you wake up tired and go to bed wired, or have difficulty sleeping?

  6. ___ When driving, do you get mad and flash your lights at other drivers, grumble, gesture, try to pass, or slow down in front of them?

  7. ___ Do you exceed the speed limit whenever you think you can get away with it?

  8. ___ Does your mind constantly race ahead, always keeping you a few steps ahead of yourself?

  9. ___ Are you a multi-tasker: that is, are you prone to work on two or three things at once rather than one at a time?

  10. ___ Do you feel "time impoverished" as if there's never enough of it, regardless of your efforts to catch up?
