The Harvard compu-tests dealt with Appropriate diagnosis---
as in...with this set of symptoms,
what is going on - IE What illness or injury is
happening. Secondly, they looked for appropriate treatment...
IE: What do you next do about it.
Results aren't that much of a factor, as just by
going to a doctor (witch-type included:-), you'll
find a 90%+ favorable outcome result. Ah, the power of Belief!
PS: Care to share your test results?

- Yep, the power of belief. Thanks for the
summary of that Harvard diagnosis program.
Since you asked, my test results were
neutral... something like 'no preference'
or 'no strong identification with idealism
OR realism'. Go figure... these tests don't
show much except intended results for folks
who can figure out the pattern of questioning
within the first few questions.
