If you answered mostly A: You’re ... Sheldon!

You have an analytical and curious mind. You’re academically gifted with an eye for minute details. While you can be a bit prickly and may tend to take things a little too seriously, you also have a whimsical side. Some may see you as smug, overly blunt, and self-centered, but the truth is you’re filled with awe of the universe and genuinely think the world would be a better place if people could see it as you do.

If you answered mostly B: You’re ... Mary!

You rely heavily on your strong faith to see you through difficult times. You try hard to be patient with others and to resist the ever-present temptation to judge. Mostly you succeed, though you can be hard on yourself when you fail to meet your own high standards. You wish everyone shared your beliefs (for their own good) and you get annoyed when you hear those beliefs mocked. Even with your faith, you’re a natural worrier (especially about those you love). At the same time, you’re an eternal optimist.

If you answered mostly C: You’re ... George!

While some people confuse your generally easygoing nature with laziness, you know the truth is that you just don’t believe in wasting your time and energy on appearances. The problem is you’re more sensitive to criticism than you admit and actually crave a little recognition for the fact that you’re honest, fair, responsible, and, yes, hardworking. Your heart is in the right place and you’re empathetic when it comes to the feelings of others. You’re also smarter than people give you credit for.

If you answered mostly D: You’re ... Georgie!

You’re an opportunist in the purest sense of the word. An unapologetic capitalist, you see giving people what they want at a price they can afford as a public service. You’re a doer, a problem solver, and a builder who resents needless obstructions to the pursuit of individual achievement, fulfillment, and happiness—and, yes, you’re pro-happiness.

If you answered mostly E: You’re ... Missy!

You’re extremely perceptive, remarkably empathetic, and have a well-developed sense of fairness and justice. You know what to say to people both when they need a lift and when they need to be taken down a few pegs. Regarding the latter though, your empathy almost always prevents you from crossing the line into meanness. You also don’t like to be pigeonholed and have mastered the fine art of simultaneously fitting in and standing out.

If you answered mostly F: You’re ... Connie! (a.k.a. Meemaw)

You’re a fun-loving, sometimes brash, and sarcastic risk-taker who has no time to waste on fools and/or nonsense of any kind. On the other hand, you have a keen understanding of what’s really important and will fight ferociously for the people, relationships, and principles that truly matter to you.
