About This Quiz

Sometimes, in order to really know yourself, you have to step outside of your normal life. The adventure vacation was created explicitly for this purpose. When one puts oneself in a setting unlike any one has experienced before, it creates a contrast where the talents one possesses rise to the foreground. Bravery, invisible in the office setting, suddenly shines in a wilderness adventure. Latent social skills, unused since high school, come to the fore in a live-action role-playing game.
