About This Quiz

Since 1998, National Compliment Day has been making the world a better place. It's not enough to give someone a boring, cookie-cutter compliment, though. In order to pay someone the highest respect possible, you have to say something about them that speaks directly to them. After you let us take a look at your personality, we'll give you the compliment we think you deserve. 

Not every personality type can easily accept or give a compliment, and there's nothing wrong with that! Though we do hope you take our compliment to heart, a lot of it depends on the answers that you provide. We can't be truly sincere if we don't get to know you as well as your best friend. You'll have to be completely honest with us about yourself to make sure we say the right thing about such a unique person. 

Will the compliment we give you have something to do with your smile? Or will it be about the way you approach everyday life? Open up about your likes, your dislikes and your tendencies, and we'll give your compliment the personal touch. You are important, and you're valuable here. Won't you let us tell you how much?
