You're awake. How about that.

Doc Mitchell

The psychological evaluation is a test that Doc Mitchell performs on you. During the tutorial quest, the psychological evaluation serves to mark the player's tagged skills.

Gameplay

During the quest "Ain't That a Kick in the Head" in Fallout: New Vegas, the player participates in a Psychological Evaluation. The test consists of a sequence of thirteen questions split into 3 sections word-association, personality profile, and Rorschach blot tests. The responses to these questions determine which three skills are recommended for him or her to tag.

Choosing "evil" answers exclusively in the first part of the test results in the Doctor commenting that giving tests like these often reveals more than he'd hope, which isn't always a good thing.

Questions

Here are the questions, the answers, and which skill each counts towards tagging:
