About This Quiz
Old-timey cartoons did an amazing job teaching kids about moral conflicts when they included scenes of a character who had an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other. The idea was that all of us struggle with internal conflict. In any situation we could do the thing we know is right and good, or we could be a little darker, and maybe do something selfish, mean or vindictive. In the cartoons, it was a struggle between listening to your tiny angel self or tiny devil self. Which one made the better argument? You'd always hope the angel made the better case but every so often that devil really knew how to have a good time.
In real life, we don't get cartoons. We just have our conscience. We usually know what we should do, but sometimes that's not good enough. Sometimes the devilish option just seems better or more fun. Sometimes we're right! We bet we can guess which side of the spectrum you fall on if you answer a few questions for us. Are you a little angel? Or do you let the devil creep in more often than not? Take the quiz and let's find out!

Guess it depends on if I'm in a rush or not.
