About This Quiz

Being stubborn isn't necessarily a bad thing. In a way, it shows that you're an independent thinker and that you have the backbone to stand up to others and not buckle under the pressure of people's expectations. Where the problem of being stubborn comes in is when there's too much of it. For instance, you can be stubborn and stand your ground if a friend pressures you to try something that you know is wrong - and that's fine. But if you're stubborn in the sense that you would not listen to good advice just for the sake of being defiant, then you could get hurt.

What we're here to do today is to tell you just how stubborn you really are. You could end up being not stubborn at all or being insanely stubborn. Your result will depend entirely on your truth, which is what we expect from you in this quiz. After all, what's the point of lying if you want an accurate response?

So, cast that stubbornness aside for 10 minutes and take this quiz. Answer our questions, and we'll tell you just how hard your head is.
