Dear Poll: How Are Your Boundaries?

Boundaries. Boundaries. Boundaries. We use the word a lot; we know having boundaries is good and healthy; and we usually feel pretty guilty or conflicted when asserting or protecting our boundaries. If we're honest, we also can feel pretty darn conflicted when somebody communicates their own boundary needs to us.

I found a great quiz that offers a snapshot of your boundary intelligence. After your score is tallied, a brief summary of your 'level' appears, along with some helpful hints.

To read an excellent, brief article about one woman's experiment changing her boundaries with a friend after learning how women “tend to confuse the absence of boundaries with real intimacy”, click here.

Go here for the test, and hurry back to submit your score! Conversations and opinions encouraged, as ever.

You boundaries become better defined the older you get or maybe you just don't want to put up with all the crap.

i got a 15. funny this should come up because i had this "thing" yesterday with a man that i wanted to just go away and i was surprised at how uncomfortable i was. i was practically ignoring him and he wouldn't "take the hint". i was actually sitting there thinking "what if he's an axe murderer, am i going to keep sitting here because i don't want to be rude?" lol, he gave me pleanty of time to think about it with his yammering on and on. finally i said "excuse me", got up and pretended i was talking on my cell phone. he still came up and said "what was your name. i don't like to talk to people without getting their names". so i told him, but of course i was thinking if i tell him "mary" and he turns out to be the uncle of one of the kids in my daughters class i'll look like the freak. i guess men don't think this way do they?
