About This Quiz

Pixies and fairies, aren't they the same thing? They most definitely are not! Yes, both creatures are small, beautiful and may have wings, but what they do are two entirely different things. Fairies are winged beings whose job it is to make others happy. They are kind of like personal genies and spirit guides. This much is evident if we look at Cinderella and her brilliant fairy godmother, who, if it wasn't for, she would not have met and therefore married the prince. 

Pixies, on the other hand, are mischievous little buggers. They make it their life's duty to cause mischief and sometimes, disaster, wherever they go. If you want proof, just look at the Cornish pixies in "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets." 

Now, you may think you're a fairy, but you're actually a pixie or you think you're a menace, but you're actually a do-gooder. The only way to find out for sure what your intentions are is to take this quiz. Will you be the teacher's pet by the end of the quiz, or will you be the one standing in the naughty corner of the fairy, sprite and pixie world? Let's find out now.
