The Jealousy Test

Questions

The Jealousy Test has been designed to help determine if, or how much, you are a jealous person.. Note: For the sake of this test, we are using the term 'mate' to describe spouse, husband, wife, partner, boyfriend or girlfriend. If you are taking this test on behalf of another person, substitute the words "him" or "her" for "you".

THE BOTTOM LINE: Answer the following questions with a "Yes" or a "No".

If your mate has exhibited even ONE of the following three behaviors there is no question that s/he is a jealous person. There is no point in you continuing to take the test, and we suggest you seriously consider seeking help to overcome these traits.

  1. Would you ever follow your mate around or tape his/her phone calls (or hire someone to do it)?
  2. Did you ever follow your husband/boyfriend around or tape his phone calls (or hire someone to do it)?
  3. Would you read a letter you accidentally came across that your mate has written someone of the opposite sex and there is no way he'd find out you read it?

GENERAL: If you are not sure.
