A 1930's Wife

I can’t remember where I came across this one, but I found it to be quite entertaining. Apparently this was a test written by George W. Crane, MD, PhD, of Northwestern University in the 1930’s.  He was a counselor who had a syndicated column called "The Worry Clinic" and began his own matchmaking service.  The sort of traits one was measured by and the scale of ‘merits’ and ‘demerits’ that were applied to them amused me. Wonder how my ‘old fashioned’ ways would rate if there was a modern version of the same test?  I shudder at the thought.



As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Superior

Take the test!

    Those were funny! I got superior, but I'm not sure I agree with that. I think many of us would have a hard time being a housewife in that time.

    Hi Ginny,

    This is way overdue, but back in April you left a comment on my blog and I just wanted to say thanks. What you said was very encouraging and boy, did I need that. Sorry it took so long to thank you!

    By the way, that test looks interesting. I'll have to try it!
