The article offers an interpretation of the results of the psychological test taken by Indian cricket player Harbhajan Singh Plaha. Based on the results, psychiatrist Himanshu Saxena claims Plaha seems to believe in perfection and is very conscious about preserving a positive public image. Plaha is said to come across as an extrovert who is flexible, fun-loving and exults in gathering and sharing thoughts, but may be a tad hesitant with his close friends.
