About This Quiz

A man cave is an important thing for a person to have (and don't let the name fool you; whether you are male or female, a little space to call your own is a vital part of an adult's mental health and relaxation). It's somewhere that you don't have to be "on" at all; where other people's expectations are irrelevant, and all you have to do is switch off, chill out, and recharge.

It's not about misanthropically withdrawing from the world. It's just about the fact that even the most gregarious, extroverted human being can find themselves worn out by constant company and by feeling like they have to show up socially and emotionally for those around them.

This is especially true for the brave men and women of our military. They often sacrifice even the tiniest vestige of privacy for years at a time and are expected to be deeply conformist. They are told what to wear, what to eat, who to see, how to speak, what to do, and even how to cut their hair. It's the job, sure, but it can wear a person down. That means it's very important for military heroes to have space in which to express yourselves freely - and how you do so tells us which branch you belong in!
