partners part of a values quiz

So I took a quiz about personal values earlier today which pissed me off in the end, wanting me to pay $9.95 for the full results, and providing a teaser thereof. But just answering the questions was interesting, and surprisingly hard sometimes. Here's a sample question for you to play along, and one that had me thinking. Give it a shot?

If you participate, please assign a different value to each one. That is, rank them from 1 to 6 as a group. (I don't think the lj poll has a way to set up a cluster of answers that force you not to give the same answer for more than one.)

Poll #494640 What is most important to you in regards to your life partner? Rate the following attributes, where 1 = Least Important.

S/he must support me in my career and accept that it takes up much of my time/energy.

Apart from one trait, I confess I ranked 'em in pretty much the same order the H-bomb had the traits. I still debate where some of the ones in the middle rightly fall in my world, but I've got the general gist of it.
 
"Whistle while you work.
Hitler was a jerk;
Mussolini ___ ___ ______---
Now it doesn't work."


What were they saying? I couldn't figure out it. Now I know!
