About This Quiz

Has anyone ever told you that you're a bit posh or a bit too fancy for their tastes? Then that may mean that you're all about the European life, unknowingly of course. You see, it isn't your fault that you've got a taste for the finer things in life. And even if it was, it's your prerogative whether you want to be chic and refined like the Europeans or down to earth like the Americans. But which one are you? Do you know or are you not sure? Our quiz can answer those questions for you. 

We're going to ask you about your food choices and what you like to eat. We also want to know what you enjoy doing, as far as hobbies go. And we're going to ask you about what you like to wear. In return, we'll tell you where you fall on the European scale. 

So, if you want to test just how European your lifestyle really is, take our quiz. Will you fit in with the people from that continent with no problem? Will you be able to switch your European-ness on or off? Or will you stick out like a sore thumb? There really is only one way to find out. So let's get started!
