About This Quiz

Probably just about everyone would like to see themselves as a good friend. Good friends are there to celebrate life’s accomplishments, even if the accomplishment is just making it through a Monday. Having a good friend around heightens the pleasure of holidays and regular days. But a good friend isn’t just there for celebrations. They’re there when your dog dies, when you’re fighting with your partner, or just feeling melancholy. 

Of course, there are different kinds of good friends. There are different ways of being available and being present to people, and we may need different types of friends for different circumstances in our lives. We have friends who we may enjoy simply because they’re always ready for anything, ready to celebrate the fact that we washed our car.
