Mostly As:
You are quite passive towards the idea of envy, you don’t consider it at all and you take everything lightly which could be dangerous at times that require more attention towards the topic. You should start putting more thought into it without letting it control or prevent you from enjoying the great things that you have in life.

Mostly Bs:
You are moderate when it comes to judging situations and people. You aren’t quick to make assumptions about why things happen and you manage to create balance between your fear of envy and your desire to enjoy the pleasures and blessings you have.

Mostly Cs:
You are quick to jump to conclusions and hang all your problems on envy. You overthink before you talk and you aren’t comfortable about sharing personal things, sometimes even with the people closest to you. You need to broaden your horizons and be able to trust more, not too much, but more.
