About This Quiz

There are two kinds of people out in the world—those who want to challenge themselves, and those who don't. How your challenge yourself can manifest in about 1,001 different ways. A challenge doesn't necessarily mean breaking a sweat; it means pushing yourself to do something you're not sure you can do. Challenging yourself can make life more interesting because it never lets you get too comfortable. Comfort might be the status quo for some people, but for others, it's just not good enough. Life demands a challenge. That's the whole point of life, really: to do and experience new things, to live life to the fullest. 

If you're the kind of person who lives for a challenge and isn't happy just letting life happen to them, then maybe you're in the market for a new challenge right now. Perhaps you're eager to see what life can throw at you next and find out what you're ready to overcome. If that's the case, take this quiz and see what challenge awaits you.
