                  I do not encourage nor discourage anyone paying for any test.  It is purely your decision, and I am not associated with any company.  I merely present sites I have found on the Internet.  Do not consider any test as the final answer.  Question and determine your own judgment and test results.   Do not join any program or pay any money  unless you are sure it is approved by your parents or guardian.
