Do you give in to pleasure, no matter what? Or are you depriving yourself too much? Find out.

1 .) You come home after a holiday party hungry (and tipsy) and open the fridge. Mmm, salty leftovers. You:
  1. Savor a few bites, then call it a night.
  2. Scarf down the whole container.
  3. Go to sleep without eating a crumb€”calories double overnight.
2 .) When you spot a fab makeup kit after buying a pal's gift, you:
  1. Pass. You can't afford it.
  2. Charge a new lipstick.
  3. Sleep on it. If you still want it tomorrow, you'll treat yourself.
3 .) The moment after I indulge in something, I...
  1. Want more of it.
  2. Feel contentment.
  3. Experience regret.
4 .) When a hot guy you meet at a bar invites you home, you:
  1. Suggest going to a dimly lit lounge make out. But stop there.
  2. Walk away. You're not leaving with him so there's no point in kissing.
  3. Head to his mattress, of course.
5 .) Name one thing you're doing for yourself during the holiday.
  1. You're too busy doting on others.
  2. Buying fab new boots.
  3. Just one? You're me-me-me list is longer than Paris Hilton's.
6 .) Ever get lost in little pleasures, like stroking a luxe leather bag but not buying it?
  1. Huh? It's total deprivation unless you can actually have it.
  2. Sure...sometimes just the suggestion of something can be enjoyable.
  3. Nah, it's a waste of time.
7 .) How many weeknights do you go out after work?
  1. Zero. It would interfere with your morning workout routine.
  2. Four to five...Why deny yourself?
  3. One or two, so you can have fun but stay on top of everything else.
8 .) Your definition of a pleasant Monday night at home is:
  1. That sentence is oxymoronic!
  2. Arranging your outfits for the week.
  3. Slipping into your silkiest pj's and digging into a great book.
9 .) On vacay, your friends propose splurging for a nice hotel. You think:
  1. "I'll just scale back on my lattes."
  2. "I really shouldn't."
  3. "Where do I sign?"
10 .) When a guy isn't satisfying you in bed, you often:
  1. Take his hand and guide him.
  2. Grab your toys and ignore him.
  3. Fake it. You'd rather have a bore-gasm than ruin his enjoyment.
