Backup Style: Oppositional (94%) This high range score is defining me as follows. You tend to take a rigidly skeptical stand toward others. This approach originates in a belief that your ideas are superior to anyone else's. While you can be direct, you are more prone to opposing things indirectly.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
