How adaptable are you in social situations? Are you always your genuine self?
Extremely Genuine
If your score is low on the self-monitoring scale, this suggests that you are totally confident about yourself. Most likely, you do not believe you should be concerned about self-presentation, and you feel at ease with being the “real” you. You may feel this way because giving a false impression makes you uncomfortable, or you are not good at interpreting cues from others and acting accordingly. You cannot figure out how to act so you’ll be accepted. Fitting in with new acquaintances who are unfamiliar to you may be problematic for you at first.
Selectively Genuine & Adaptable
If your score is midrange on the self-monitoring scale, the number suggests that you only monitor yourself to a certain extent at certain times, and you don’t always alter your behavior very much. Those with a self-monitoring score higher than yours have a tendency to alter their behavior to a greater extent, and it depends on what type of social atmosphere those people are in. Those with a score lower than yours have a tendency to act in the same manner all the time, no matter what type of social environment they’re in.
Highly Socially Adaptable
If your score is high on the self-monitoring scale, the suggestion is your sense of self is extremely pliant and flexible. Those who score high can usually interpret social cues well and change the way they act accordingly. This score says you will most likely be able to present yourself differently in a variety of social situations. Performing artists and people who are entertainers usually have these characteristics. Those who have a self-monitoring score that’s high are usually excellent at discerning deception in people, and they are adept at effecting how they feel emotionally.
