About This Quiz

During this quiz, we'll examine the things you have in common with the mythological Siren or the alluring mermaid. While Sirens were said to lead men to their deaths, mermaids were thought to save sailors in times of trouble. Do you consider yourself a helpful soul, or do you lead people on and then abandon them?

Have you ever heard that you have the voice of an angel or that you swim like a fish? Those things are fundamental when deciding whether you're a Siren or a mermaid. However, it's your inner traits that will tell us what we need to know to make our final decree.

Tell us about your thoughts, your lifestyle and the things that comprise your personality. Once we get a good sense of your inner light, it will be fairly easy to differentiate your mermaid traits from your Siren traits!

Make sure you have a drink before you get started on this quiz! Sirens need to stay hydrated to sing so well, and mermaids must have water to survive. Your answers will tell us everything we need to know to decide whether or not we can trust you with our life, or should steer clear of your dangerous vibes!
