Monday Brain Food ~ Dominant Personality Quiz

Photo by Nawal_

You're pretty familiar with your personality, characteristics and quirks, right? Here's a quick and fun quiz about your DOMINANT PERSONALITY TRAITS which might not be quite as well known to you. According to the test, I'm Passion. {Let's not confirm that with King Rufus, okay?} :)

This might be a fun tool to put some of your novel's characters through also. Do you know how they'd react in certain situations?

Hope your week is a great and easy one, especially if you have kidlets transitioning from summer sloth back to school schedules.


I'm working my way through all the wonderful entries in the Haiku Hoedown last week, and will announce the winner Wednesday, the day we yap about all things writing and writerly.


Mandy said...

Angie, I am described as "Passion" too - could it be our roots? ;-)

This quiz was actually HILARIOUS! Some of those comments were LOL funny. I especially liked the one that said, "none of your effing business." hahahaha - I'm going to use that line.

Thanks for sharing this today and for giving me yet another excuse not to do real work at my paying job. LOL!

Angie Ledbetter said...

Yes, it's our fantastical shared roots! So glad I gave you another reason to procrastinate on boring ol' work stuff, Mandy! :)

ChristaCarol said...

Hey, I'm "Passion" too!

Scott said...

Wisdom - I am bright and witty and often know just what to say. I am full of knowledge, some of it useless, but I always have something to smart to add to everyone's commentary.

Hey now, that last sentence doesn't make me sound so good. Hmmmmm . . . .crazy quiz! : )

I also think, more often than not, I just don't say anything . . . well, except in the comment sections of the blogs I follow. : )

I was going to take the quiz, but the first question started this way...

"You are at a furneral..."

... and I figure anybody who can't be bothered to proofread or spell-check isn't going to tell ME what my personality traits are :-)

Travis Erwin said...

Just call me Wisdom.

Stephanie Faris said...

I need to go take it for my characters. I'm struggling with making sure their personalities are showing through.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Christa - Writers unite? :)

LOL Scott, Oh Wise One.

Now, Suldawg - like you've never attended a "furneral" before. hehe But second thought, I think your Blogarama friends know quite enough about your dominant personality traits already. HUGS

Hooty hoo, Travis!

Hope it helps build those characters' interiors, Stephanie. :)

Hmmm, I wonder how accurate this is? I got Beauty.

I was laughing way too hard at the 'You think People:' and the last one was 'Should all die.' Oh my! Someone would have to have some serious pent up regression to click that one.

Cheffie-Mom said...

I'm off to take the quiz! enJOY your day!

Elizabeth Bradley said...

I had my daughter take this quiz and found out that she's egotistical and everyone is here to serve HER. She's laughing about it now.

A Mom on Spin said...


I'm a beauty!!!!

Terri Tiffany said...

Passion. Hmm--we won't ask my husband about this either.

Jessica said...

Okay, I was Passion but honestly, some of the questions I didn't know how to answer. Like what I spent my last couple of dollars on. Did they mean emptying out my wallet or just the last place I spent cash? Hmmmm... LOL

lakeviewer said...

Be very careful of these quizzes. Humans are complicated and not easily put in categories. Characters, too, need layers of complexities to be believable.

Karen said...

I was passion too. Hubby loved it.

Anonymous said...

The quiz said wise, but the owl is a night hunter and I do not poach, however I have been known to sneak up on some things at night. King Rufus would be proud.

Carrie Wilson Link said...

I was Passion, too!

Laura Eno said...

Hi Angie,
I have an award waiting for you over on my site, ready to be picked up. :)

Angie Ledbetter said...

Diane - glad you got a giggle. These quizzes are fun/funny. :)

Cheffie - thanks & ditto.

Elizabeth - LOL...did ya really need a test to confirm that?

Terri - passion for writing and encouraging othres! :)

True, Jessica. I guess that's why these silly tests are for fun and amusement only.

lakeviewer - absolutely. Real humans and good book characters are layered and multi-dimensional. :)

WTG Karen!

Oren - I won't bother Rufus right now with your sniggly commentary...he's off hunting or fishing.

Write on Carrie!

Thank you so much, Laura. Kind of you to pass along the blog blingage. :)

Deb Shucka said...

I was passion, too. Cool! Fun quiz, and I really like the idea of doing it for a story character.

Karen said...

Fun personality was an owl. Now it didn't say if it was a screech owl or what???

Good idea for story characters.


Dorothy said...

Passion, too, but I don't see how.

Kathryn Magendie said...

well, I had passion and VK had passion, even though our answers weren't all the same .. :)

Marguerite said...

Had to be passion! Cajun roots, again!
