About This Quiz

They say that we never really change, but are you still essentially acting like your high school self? Let’s take a trip back to the bleachers and find out if you are the same person you were all those years ago!  Whether you spent more time hitting the books or hanging out in the locker room, your distinct personality traits probably still shine through! Depending on your level of high school swagger, you may have gained or lost cool points in the adult world. This quiz will take you through your high school years to get to the heart of who you were back then.

Unlike high school, this is one quiz you can’t fail! There are no right or wrong answers, and no one is going to send you to detention (but we can't help if you get caught taking this at work.)  Were you a nerd, or were you a jock? There’s only one way to find out! Channel your teenage angst and remember your biggest crush. Take this quiz and your responses will tell us what stereotypical high school kid you were back when you didn’t have to pay bills!
