About This Quiz

History is a field of study that should be respected because of the many lessons it can teach us about ourselves and the world around us. In fact, the idea that "history repeats itself" is popular because it's been borne out time and again in colonialism, war and the fall of empires. The patterns in history are undeniable, and we can use them as guides for the future. 

But what can history teach us about ourselves and our own personalities? By looking at history, we can find out which president we might have been, and maybe even help clarify what is important to us when we are voting or considering politics in the future. Have you ever been curious which U.S. president you would be? Here's a quiz where you can find out!

The President of the United States has an important role, after all, not only in the U.S., but across the world. They're a leader in the free world and a role model for millions, but that doesn't mean they are all the same in terms of personality or policy. 

So if you're curious which president you would be, answer these history questions and let us tell you. The answer might not only surprise you but could also give you an insight into yourself that you've never seen before.
