Your total is 13.
Don't get caught up on getting some negative score. Sometimes you just have to live life. Yes, I answer my door. I take walks with my wife on a clear nigh. I don't know karate (I have won fist fights with people who do, they should have asked that I guess). I wear an overcoat when I wear a suit. I do all of those things armed, what can I say.
I like the quiz, but it is what it is. I'm not impressed by negative numbers any more then I would someone who had some high score. People have different lifestyles, it is always good to consuider the risks.

I got a 1, but if I quit driving around on E I can be a -3.
Spoiler Alert - Don't read if you haven't taken the quiz yet.
I hope no one minds. I thought it would be fun to see some of the scoring it uses so I pulled it up. It's not everything. And some of the scoring is just odd, like it increases one point for each additional credit card you carry, but anyway here it is.

-28, probably cause I hate to leave the house
i got a negitive 19
"The value you put on the lost will be determined by the sacrifice you are willing to make to seek them until they are found."
