About This Quiz

Gather your posse and circle the wagons! It's time to find out once and for all: If you were alive during the boom and bust of the Old West, what would your job have been? Would you thrive or just survive? How would you tame the Wild Wild West?

It took a certain type of person. We're talking about living miles from your nearest neighbors. Camping under the stars with one eye open. If you were living back then, would you be a leader among lawful men? An entrepreneur opening the town’s first saloon? Can’t quite picture yourself yet? Perfect. This quiz offers plenty of insight into what would suit you best. We'll take you through a trail of questions that reveal your personality traits and match you to the Old West job that would have been right as rain for you.

Maybe you’d be looking to put a little distance between yourself and some trouble from your past. Or perhaps you’d be setting out on your own to try and strike it rich. Maybe you’d be a part of a wagon train, wanting to start fresh, raise a family and make a clean livin’ off all that free and open land. But once you planted your feet in western soil, then watched the sun rise and set over the mountains, what would you be doing on the regular? Answer these questions and your fate could be revealed. Take the quiz now!
