What's Your Revenge Style?

PERSONALITY QUIZ: What's Your Revenge Style?
Considering revenge is a very human response to feeling slighted, humans are atrocious at predicting its effects.

Historically, there are two main schools of thought on revenge. The Bible, in Exodus 21:23, instructs us to "give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot" to punish an offender. But more than 2,000 years later, Martin Luther King Jr., responded, "The old law of 'an eye for an eye' leaves everybody blind."

Who's right? As psychologists explore the mental machinery behind revenge, it turns out both can be, depending on who and where you are. If you're a power-seeker, revenge can serve to remind others you're not to be trifled with. If you live in a society where the rule of law is weak, revenge provides a way to keep order.

How do you seek revenge? This question tells a lot about your personality and is therefore one of the favorite psychologists' questions when analyzing with their clients.
