Not Dr. Phil's Online Personality Test!

Nina writes: Dear Dr. Phil, I recently took your online personality test. Can you really tell my personality type by what color I like, or if I sit with my legs crossed, or the position I sleep in or how fast I walk? My test results were that I'm the lively center of attention. That couldn't be further from the truth. Dr. Phil, is this for real?

Sincerely, Nina, Marina del Ray, California

Dr. Phil breaks the news that he doesn't have a personality test on the Internet. "Those people are ripping off my name, they are ripping off my trademark, they are ripping off the copyright. So, no, I don't have a personality test. It's bogus," he says.
