Willpower test

The following test estimates the strength of one's willpower. Someone with a weak willpower is not able to impose himself objectives and bring them to a conclusion, frequently appearing as an inconclusive person. Who instead possesses a strong willpower is capable of wielding a considerable control over his life; he's motivated and oriented towards his objectives. This test does not have a diagnostic function and its result should be considered purely indicative.
