Fun Friday–What Punctuation Are You?

Friday, February 25, 2011


It’s been a busy week, so you’ll have to forgive me for copping out today and posting a Blogthings quiz.

Go take the quiz and then come back and post your answer! Is it right? Wrong?


You Are a Comma


You are open minded and extremely optimistic.
You enjoy almost all facets of life. You can find the good in almost anything.

You keep yourself busy with tons of friends, activities, and interests.
You find it hard to turn down an opportunity, even if you are pressed for time.

Your friends find you fascinating, charming, and easy to talk to.
(But with so many competing interests, you friends do feel like you hardly have time for them.)

You excel in: Inspiring people

You get along best with: The Question Mark

I don’t know about the whole “open minded” bit and the “extremely optimistic” part couldn’t be further from the truth. As for the rest of it . . . pretty close to the mark.

It’ll be interesting to find out who’s a question mark to see with whom I’m supposed to get along best! ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’m a dash. I thought for sure I would be a big ole question mark!

      Had to go in and look this one up (it’s amazing how quickly one can come up with the alternate results jut by clicking on random answers!):

      Your life is fast paced and varied. You are realistic, down to earth, and very honest.
      You’re often busy doing something interesting, and what you do changes quickly.

      You have many facets to your personality, and you connect them together well.
      You have a ton of interests. While some of them are a bit offbeat, they all tie together well.

      You friends rely on you to bring novelty and excitement to their lives.
      (And while you’re the most interesting person they know, they can’t help feeling like they don’t know you well.)

      You excel in: Anything to do with money

      You get along best with: the Exclamation Point

      Yay–another comma! Maybe that’s why we love to use them so much in our writing? ๐Ÿ˜‰

    You Are a Colon
    You are very orderly and fact driven.
    You aren’t concerned much with theories or dreams… only what’s true or untrue.

    You are brilliant and incredibly learned. Anything you know is well researched.
    You like to make lists and sort through things step by step. You aren’t subject to whim or emotions.

    Your friends see you as a constant source of knowledge and advice.
    (But they are a little sick of you being right all of the time!)

    You excel in: Leadership positions

    You get along best with: The Semi-Colon

    (I would say this is somewhat accurate)

      Hmmm . . . now that I read this result, I’m surprised I didn’t get this one. This one is even more like me than the Comma result!

      You Are a Question Mark
      You seek knowledge and insight in every form possible. You love learning.
      And while you know a lot, you don’t act like a know it all. You’re open to learning you’re wrong.

      You ask a lot of questions, collect a lot of data, and always dig deep to find out more.
      You’re naturally curious and inquisitive. You jump to ask a question when the opportunity arises.

      Your friends see you as interesting, insightful, and thought provoking.
      (But they’re not always up for the intense inquisitions that you love!)

      You excel in: Higher education

      You get along best with: The Comma

        I’m sorta surprised I didn’t get this one.

        Oh yeah, it’s the not acting like a know it all. Trust me I can act like a know it all. I fight against it on most days.

    I’m surprised, cause I had a little trouble deciding on the BEST answer for some of the questions, but I think it’s fairly accurate. I don’t know about “brilliant and incredibly learned, but most of my friends would roll their eyes and agree with BOTH lines of this description:

    Your friends see you as a constant source of knowledge and advice.
    (But they are a little sick of you being right all of the time!)

    Also, I am a reluctant leader, but will always step up if no one else does, so I guess that part is fairly accurate also.

    Interesting quiz. I should have my husband take it and see if he’s a semi-colon ๐Ÿ˜›

      Here’s the description:

      You Are An Exclamation Point
      You are a bundle of… well, something.
      You’re often a bundle of joy, passion, or drama.

      You’re loud, brash, and outgoing. If you think it, you say it.
      Definitely not the quiet type, you really don’t keep a lot to yourself.

      You’re lively and inspiring. People love to be around your energy.
      (But they do secretly worry that you’ll spill their secrets without even realizing it.)

    It is funny how changing a few answers can alter what you are. At first, the quiz said I was a dash, which after reading the analysis, I knew that I was not. I changed a couple of responses and came up with the comma which fits me way better. I think the reason why my initial analysis was wrong was because I was trying to decide between two responses and I must have chosen the ‘wrong’ ones. ; )

    I came up as an exclamation point. I consider myself reserved, but the description fits when I’m with people I know. I am passionate about things and energetic, and I do enjoy public speaking and am even in Toastmasters
