What age do you act?

March 3, 2015

What age do you act?

You act as though you’re 26.

You’re definitely still in touch with your inner child, but you can also be serious when you need to be. You know when and how to let yourself go a little and like to put some time aside to really have fun. Your friends can’t understand how you manage to stay so laid-back and so practical all at once, but trust us, they’re definitely jealous.

That’s not how I remember 26 and I’d be worried if that’s how my friends feel now.

 


Are you the family doctor?

Very impressive! You were able to diagnose these common illnesses from a list of their symptoms. You did so well you may even be a nurse or future doctor on your way to medical school! You did better than 92% of the people that take this quiz and have proven your family is in good hands! Great job!

Understanding idioms

February 24, 2015

15/15 in the idiom quiz:

Awesome job, you ACED this one! This quiz was clearly just another, “rung in the ladder” as you climb your way towards English excellence! You clearly have a mastery of the English language and all of its intricacies used in everyday conversations. Others have, “bitten off more than they can chew” with this quiz because only 19% of quiz takers pass this one.

The bar isn’t set very high so unless you’re a kumara or two short of a hangi you’ll find it’s plain sailing.


15/15

February 21, 2015

15/15 in this general knowledge quiz (with a couple of partially educated guesses).

Your genius is undeniable! This quiz required you to know rhinos, beer, world history, pianos, etc… and you ACED them all! Most people don’t have the mental capacity to remember all these little tidbits of information, but you are not most people! You obviously have a powerful mind and a knack for retaining knowledge.
