Understanding Python classes

I am trying to learn about python classes, but I don't understand something. Why does this simple example not return "6"? It returns <function TEST.f at 0x00000000029ED378> instead. I have also tried TEST.f() but then he tells me that the argument self is missing. Shouldn't self only exist inside the class and python fills it in automatically?

#! coding=utf-8

class TEST:
    def __init__(self):
        self.x = 6
    def f(self):



You need to create an instance of the class.

test = TEST()
print test.x()

But you also need to call the method and the variable different things.

class TEST:
    def __init__(self):
        self._x = 6
    def x(self):

Otherwise you're redefining the value of x.
