The party’s coming, people. The eve of enjoyment is about to arrive and what, pray tell, have you to do?
Most of you have probably made tentative plans, if any at all. So, in a helpful and generous effort to aid you in the search for a night to remember, we at the Metro Times have devised the following personality quiz. Fill it out, taking account of all your partying predilections, and discover the real New Year’s you!
Directions: Read through the following questions. Put a tick mark next to the letter which corresponds with your best or most likely answer. Then regard the letter that you chose most often. If this personality test works as well as it should — which is at least as well as most vague quizzes of this sort do — you and a herd of others like you will be guided toward the events that will best meet your social guidelines for a perfect holiday night.
Understand, though, that this questionnaire is by no means based on any scientific surveys of any sort, has no psychologist backing it, does not offer any guarantee, written or implied. It might, however, point you toward a fun night out.
