(Original Air Date: 10/22/10) Are you more of an extrovert or do you tend to be neurotic? Learn about the five basic dimensions of personality, and take the Big 5 Test to determine which category you fall in! Brian is a mild-mannered fun husband and father, but when he sits behind the wheel, he says he gets so angry and aggressive that he constantly sprays other cars with windshield wiper fluid -- going through as much as three gallons of fluid every week! Can he put the brakes on his temper before someone gets hurt? Next, meet Sam Gosling, professor of psychology and author of Snoop: What Your Stuff Says about You. See what he learns about the Dr. Phil staff and Dr. Phil when he snoops through the office! And, body language expert Dr. Lillian Glass analyzes Darcy and Craig's behavior on a date. Is this couple of seven months compatible for the long haul? Plus, learn how to mesh your personality with someone who's opposite of you, and take a quiz to find out your dog personality!

Find out what happened on the show.

My husband died almost 3 years ago. I would not bicker about his leaving a spoon on the counter. My priorities have changed since I lost him.

And what was Brian's wife finding so funny about his road rage-fueled, way over the speed limit type of driving? You'd think she would have tried to talk some sense into him long before now. My gosh -- she's actually in the passenger seat (at least some of the time) when Brian is pulling this nonsense on the road. Some things I will just never understand...

I'm seeing the show a day late but have to write about Brian. First of all -- who ever heard of using your wipers and windshield washer fluid to intimidate other drivers??? It's ridiculous. What is even MORE ridiculous is that Brian apparently thinks that when other drivers don't get, THEY are the ones who are stupid!! Brian is absolutely a menace on the road, and I pity anybody who has the misfortune to encounter him on the road. Just wish Dr. Phil would have been a lot more stern with this guy who has an ego (at least on the road) WAY bigger than his brain.

Dr Phil, When the housewives series started and you introduced Kim, you gave a brief description and included the fact that she has fibromyalgia.  Since that time it has never been mentioned. Why?  I know there is alot of emotional work for her to work on plus her drinking problem.  Fibromyalgia is a very real illness and could be a huge contributitor to why she behaves the way she does.  there is so much pain and fatigue involved with depression and anxiety too.  I hope you are always considering the fibromyalgia and how it can be affecting her actions.

I was shocked that my results fit me to a T! Most quizzes are hit and miss. This one and the Dog Personality test were pretty accurate!

I, too, am one of the many who have posted that they can see the dancer spinning in both directions, and, I can MAKE her switch.
I hope that an answer will be posted to this.  I'm very curious to know what it means for us.

Spinning dancer - I haven't read everyone's comments, I see a lot of people who can see her spin one direction and then switch. Is there anyone else who can MAKE her switch? I can, what does that mean?


PDA couples - now I'm talking about those who get right into it, not just a kiss, I dont' really understand them and what I really feel is that they don't have much respect for their partner. To me it's like "this is my man/woman so I'll put my scent on him/her." I think it's also rude (I think 'get a room' is a great line) and also very boring. They figure 'don't watch then' but if they're in front of you in a line, theatre, on a bus or at the booth in the restaurant that you're facing...I mean...my eyes are on the front of my face, where else do they suggest I look? And lastly, it seems so animalistic, like they have no discretion, wait 'til later. If a dog sees a mate - he doesn't say "I can't do that now,there are people" - he just pursues. That's what PDA couples remind me of. They can't wait.
