About This Quiz

All of us are made up of a bunch of different personality traits, but every single one of us has one that really stands out above all the rest. While there are a whole bunch of different types of traits that we can recognize in ourselves, do you think you can recognize the one that others notice most about us?

Are you the type who is really open to new experiences, and who is always ready to learn new things? If so, you're probably also full of imagination and insight.

Could your most compelling personality trait be that you're extroverted? If so, you love being the center of attention, have a ton of energy, and have all sorts of friends.
