5 Anti-Sue/Stu
Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they are scoring that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit.

6-15 Balanced Character
If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character. Those scoring in the higher end of this category may be a bit too much though.

16-25 Borderline Mary-Sue/Gary-Stu
We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a bit annoying to others, too.

Might help if the different topics of the survey were separated instead of being all clumped together, but this is an interesting and very helpful survey-type-thing to take to evaluate one's Original Characters. pretty cool.

Mind if I use this? I have a few characters that need this sort of evaluation...
