About This Quiz

Of all the potential careers in the world, is there any more intriguing than being a secret agent? Is there any career that's even more dangerous? 

To be a secret agent, you must be immensely skilled at many things. You have to be intelligent, able to blend into any situation, you have to be well spoken with the gift of gab, and you have to be able to take care of yourself if a physical altercation goes down.

But there are two things that all good secret agents have. They are all incredibly trustworthy and they have the ability to lie extremely well. And that's the thing about being a secret agent: if you are one, you pretty much have to be good at it. It isn't like if you're bad you get fired. Instead, you get captured and thrown in some foreign prison. And who wants that?

So do you have the ability to be James Bond? Do you even have the desire to? Just thinking about being a secret agent makes a lot of people not want to get off the couch. Take this quiz and we'll let you know if you're secret agent material. We promise we won't tell anyone how you do. Unless of course, we are secret agents too.
