Here are all the results with descriptions

100 Percent Self-Aware
Congratulations! You have an exceptional capacity for introspection and are able to analyze and understand what makes you tick and why. You not only respect yourself and your individuality, but you make a big effort to improve on your qualities based on a true and accurate conception of who you really are.

50 Percent Self-Aware
Half the time, you get it, and half the time, you just don't. You have the capacity to reflect on yourself and to see yourself for who you really are, but sometimes you let your emotions get in the way of how you live your life.

25 Percent Self-Aware
You are very controlled by your emotions and knee-jerk responses to life's array of stimuli. You find it hard to put yourself in someone else's shoes and rarely get the chance to think things through before you react--especially when it comes to defending yourself from criticism.

Totally Oblivious of Yourself
You are oblivious to the idea that you are not the center of the universe and that there's more to a situation than your initial reaction to it. You are constantly on the defensive, in self-protection mode and with a strong dose of denial. This is all your way of protecting yourself from dealing with your true feelings or from getting to know the real you. Here's the thing: The real you isn't as horrible as you think it is! You would do a great deal of good by getting to know yourself better. Try some guided meditations, therapy, or a bit of journaling, and see how self-awareness can make all the difference in your life.
