About This Quiz

What will it be: put aside your annual bonus for a rainy day or blow it on that handbag you've been eyeing in the store window for some time? Should you pass on dessert or indulge in that double chocolate mousse cake because it's Friday and you've worked hard all week?

Life is full of temptations, and we're forced to make choices all day long without giving it much thought. But during this quiz, we want you to focus on the choices you find most appealing. Your answers will help illuminate how you go about making decisions.

We're not saying it's impossible to follow both your heart and your brain, but most people find that one dominates more than the other. Some folks are able to remain logical during emotional situations, while others are highly guided by their emotions.

As we go through this set of "this or that" questions, we'll evaluate your responses and let you know whether it's your brain or your heart that rules the day. There are no right or wrong answers. Just respond honestly. Who knows? You may be surprised by the results!
