Total: 14 points
Your point score:
5: Anti-Sue. Your character may be a bit on the boring side. Of course, this does depend, but generally if they score that low, it wouldn't hurt to 'spice them up' a bit.
6-15: Balanced Character. If your OC scored around here, then they are probably quite a well-balanced and interesting character. Those scoring in the higher end of this category may be a bit too much though.
16-25: Borderline Mary-Sue. We have a problem. You need to tone your character down. They are most likely a bit annoying to others, too.
26: Mary-Sue. Please revise your character... NOW.
Ben Mare a Mary Sue/Gary Stu? I don't think so!
