About This Quiz

We all attract certain types of people based on our personality, the things we like, our attitude and other essential factors. Very often, who we attract and who we'd like to attract are two different things. Some people might love being around artists and spiritual souls, but they only seem to attract intellectuals. Likewise, you may yearn for a friend or a lover who is an outdoorsy type because you would love to spend time with them out in the open, but for some reason, you seem to attract couch potatoes. 

It's not uncommon for a person to wish for a particular personality in their friends and lovers, but is somehow always surrounded by entirely different people. However, our happiness is significantly affected by the relationships we have. It depends on living our lives with people who allow us to grow and who share our interests. For instance, an extrovert who loves adventure and fun cannot be happy next to an introvert who doesn't care about new experiences. It's important to surround yourself with people who have the types of personalities that make you feel most comfortable.

You may not be able to change the people around you, but you can always change the people you choose to be around. Let's dive into these questions and see what types of personalities you attract.
