Re: Poll: If you were asked by your instructor to test for rank, would you turn it down?
I would not turn it down, one does not do that to his sensey. But I would try to convince him to postpone the timing as long as possible. At least so long as I do not feel I deserve the promotion.
From my own experiance, and having seen it among others. This feeling of unworthingess is very common among the Yundasha. Since we are all aware of that, we all relent in the end and let Sensei have it his way.
