Your score analysis to 'Disclosure and Concealment' personality test

Multiply your Hubpages score (which is in a percentage format) by 0.60

As an example, if your HubPages score is 70%. Then 70 x 0.60 = 42.0 Your actual "Disclosure and Concealment" score is therefore 42.0

In the sampling taken with undergraduate students, the mean score for men is 36.33 with standard deviation = 8.98. Women had a mean score of 42.21 with standard deviation = 9.16 (Standard deviation is the range + and - from the mean score)

If your score is higher than the above range, then you have the tendency to disclose distressing experiences to others. Low scores indicate a tendency to conceal information about distressing events.
