Scoring

Which type of friend do you see yourself as?

Are you the shoulder-to-cry-on? The life-of-the-party? The wise mentor? The brutally-honest loyal friend? Or the risk-taking adventurer?

  • If you answered YES to 1-9 questions out of 20 in one section, skip and go on to the next section. The score is too low to consider it your predominant friend personality.
  • If you answered YES to 10-14 questions out of 20 for two or more sections, note them down.
  • If you answered YES to 15-20 questions out of 20 under a particular type, then you now have a clue of your predominant friend personality.

As you can see, the results can always be a mix of two (or more) friend personalities. You can be a well-rounded friend who can give the best advice or be the wise mentor, but also push you when you need to get out of your comfort zone and experience a fun-filled day out.
