Are You A Speechie Or A Debater? - Quiz

What competitive event do you belong in? Are you a born debater or speechie? Even though both activities have their own pros and cons, simply looking at a list of those will not help you decide which one to do. The thing is, if you love and enjoy something the cons do not matter. It comes down to this: what are you interested in and who are you? Do you A) like to be lawyer-like, logical, and get into arguments? Or B) are you the type of person who wants to get better at public speaking or acting in a prepared setting? Whichever one you lean towards is probably the activity for you.
