I have found that since I got my shodan my rank has mattered less to me. When I was asked to testfor nidan I did it mainly because my sensei asked me to. I would test again if my sensei asked but not because I feel that I want it or should have it. I would encourage any students that I train with to test when asked because I feel that the testing procedures help them improve in the art regardless of their rank.
