Each item should be responded to quickly without over-thinking. The test should take most people not more than six minutes. http://personality-testing.info/tests/FPS.phpThe materials in this online archival collection document various aspects of the Women's Liberation Movement in the United States and focus specifically on the radical origins of this movement during the late 1960s and early 1970s.
