About This Quiz

People always want to know more about their personalities. Sure, you might think you know what you're like, but do you really? The only way to really find out who you are is to find more about what other people are like and compare and contrast yourself to them.  The most famous personality test is known as the Meyers Briggs, but people always want to know more about themselves.  That is why it is always interesting when a new study comes out that lets us know more about our personality. A group of scientists just did a study and grouped everyone into 4 distinct categories, average, reserved, role models, and self-centered.  You probably noticed right away one of the groups is called average. That could be a personality test all by itself. Think about it, do you actually want to be in the average group, or would it make you irritated?

We have developed a series of questions which will let you know which one of these groups you belong in, so if you're ready to find out more about yourself, don't be scared, just take this quiz. Just remember that average doesn't always mean basic and being self-centered isn't always a bad thing,
