The Plagiarized Values Poll

This poll is doubly plagiarized: the questions on it were mostly inspired by two of the questions in this online personality test, and the idea of making the questions on that personality test into a LiveJournal poll was additionally inspired by fflo, who made one of the same questions into a LiveJournal poll a while back. But I'm making two of the questions into a LiveJournal poll, and I also rewrote some of the answer choices slightly, because I felt that my wording better conveyed the concepts they were trying to test than theirs did.

If you assign two items identical values, it should mean that you consider them to have exactly equal value as strengths or weaknesses. Try to differentiate the values as much as you can.

Now, satisfy my curiosity!
