About This Quiz

Our fancy game of "Would You Rather" will put you through the ringer, but you'll love every second of it. Do you think you are more or less fearless than the average person? To gauge how courageous you are, the "Would You Rather" game is designed for accuracy. You might not be 100% certain about all of the choices, but we're betting there's an option just for you. 

While some of us go fearlessly into the night, a lot of us have to carry flashlights everywhere the minute the sun falls. Telling us if you would rather eat sharp glass or swallow a cup full of mosquitos might not sound like a reasonable way to determine your level of fearlessness, but we are confident we have you covered. 

We'll ask you to put your best and most imaginative foot forward for this game. Simply put - if you find this game frightening, you may not be as fearless as you would like to believe. 

Try not to laugh to much at yourself. Although it's good for the soul, we need you to keep a straight face so we can sum you up with sincerity. Are you ready to give it a try? Or are you scared?
