Have you ever, in a moment of boredom done those online quizzes? You know the ones that determine what kind of personality you have, which character from Sesame Street you’re most like or how much of a hipster you are?
I find myself doing them now and again, usually when somebody on twitter has posted a link to it revealing what they got. I do them mainly for a laugh – the personality tests in particular. Sometimes I read the outcomes and think they’ve got it completely wrong. That Sesame Street quiz for example, said that I was mostly like Elmo. I love Elmo, but I think I am more like Grover myself. Occasionally, they reveal the odd thing that I agree with. Rarely, they get it completely right. But mostly, I read the result and then do it again giving different answers….which more often than not brings up the same score.
Still, it’s a fun way to waste two minutes. Just don’t be too pissed off if it tells you you’re 95% hipster.
