Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    What subjects are you naturally inclined to or excel at or like?
    • A. 

      Showy subjects like Charms and Transfiguration, where I can do fancy spells and transformations for my adoring fans.

    • B. 

      More complex subjects like Arithmancy and Ancient Runes, subjects that challenge me.

    • C. 

      Competitive extra curricular activities are more my thing, but Muggle Studies also interests me - Muggles are pretty interesting.

    • D. 

      More intense subjects like Defense Against the Dark Arts - I have a penchant for wanting to protect and defend. Chivalry isn't dead, you know.

    • E. 

      Practical arts that have more of a routine or method to them like Potions and memorizing things like in History of Magic - I do have an excellent memory.

    • F. 

      I like to look to other powers and the sky, so Astronomy or Divination is more up my alley.

  • 2. 
    So, conversely, what subjects do you tend to do poorly in or not like?
    • A. 

      I don't like the more practical subjects like Potions or History of Magic.

    • B. 

      I believe Divination to be very wooly, impractical branches of magic.

    • C. 

      More explorative subjects such as Muggle Studies really don't appeal to me - I'm more concerned with personal matters.

    • D. 

      More linear subjects lose me, like History of Magic - I'd rather not memorise overall very dull facts about those that have past. I am more concerned with my present.

    • E. 

      I don't do well with celestial, up-in-the-air subjects like Astronomy.

    • F. 

      Potions is too dull and predictable for me - too routine.

  • 3. 
    What colors do you gravitate toward?
    • A. 

      I like very earthy tones, like browns or beiges.

    • B. 

      I'm partial to light pastels and white.

    • C. 

      I like splashes of yellow and red.

      More calming, subdued blues and seagreens.

    • E. 

      Royal purple or a shiny silver, like armor.

  • 5. 
    You have found out recently that your great aunt left you more than a shiny penny in inheritance - what do you do with your newly acquired (and very large) sum of money? 
    • A. 

      I donate it to help the less fortunate.

    • B. 

      I save half for a rainy day and spend the other half on a global excursion!

    • C. 

      I pay off any debts, primarily, while saving a large portion of it and then purchase some more luxurious items with the rest.

    • D. 

      I store it into a savings account right away - you never know what could happen.

    • E. 

      I spend it on things I've always wanted!

    • F. 

      I give a large portion to my family (or family who did not get anything from my great aunt) - after all, they're my roots and without them I'd be nothing - and then I put the rest into CDs so they accumulate interest so I have even more money down the line.

  • 6. 
    A friend of yours hands you a small plastic toy that seems difficult to solve and challenges you to solve it - what do you do with the toy?
    • A. 

      I comply quietly and take on the challenge - I don't like to pass up opportunities to flex my wits. I solve it with innate intuition in a short time.

    • B. 

      I hastily accept and if I couldn't figure it out, I'd get pretty upset but if I did solve it, I'd probably gloat.

    • C. 

      I take the toy and cooly assure my friend that I could solve it easily, and I do. After all, I'm always right.

    • D. 

      I take the challenge with a gleam of competition in my eyes and attempt solving it. If I do solve it with unparalleled determination, no matter how long it takes.

    • E. 

      I snatch the toy away and fiddle with it in a relaxed but happy manner - games are fun, win or lose!

    • F. 

      I accept the toy slowly and solve it in time, working on it bit by bit. "Slow and steady wins the race," after all.

  • 7. 
    At school, you can often be found doing what when out of class?
    • A. 

      Playing sports or having little contests with my friends - I just can't say no to a challenge.

    • B. 

      Well, I definitely don't hang around the same old spots every day - I like exploring the campus the best, seeing all I can see.

    • C. 

      I'd be found helping other students by tutoring, helping new students to get places around campus, or keeping to myself when not doing that.

    • D. 

      I like to read or find a nice quiet place to just think.

    • E. 

      Well, whatever I'm doing, you can be sure the majority of the school is watching. I like to put myself out there - I'm a firestarter, what can I say?

    • F. 

      Playing mind games like Chess or maybe a nice game of cards, as well. The brain is a muscle that needs to be worked out, as well.

  • 8. 
    What animal do you best identify with?
    • A. 

      A wolf - part of a pack and loyal to that pack, but hard-working and taking care of myself, too.

    • B. 

      A large, strong bear - having a predictable lifestyle and somewhat lumbering, but misunderstood and frightening when angered.

    • C. 

      The majestic lion - this animal is the King of Beasts, as so I am in my circle of friends. The don't call 'em the "King" for nothing!

    • D. 

      That's easy - a bird. Being carefree up in the air like that, being able to travel easily to wherever you desired... that's the life.

    • E. 

      Something adaptable and intelligent, like a rat. Rats are identified as being animals with plenty of cunning and are incredibly resourceful.

    • F. 

      An animal that have piercing eyes and a reserved attitude, though strong, like a hawk.

  • 9. 
    Several years ago, someone stole your wallet from you and was never caught. Now this person is a changed, better soul but has been arrested for stealing. You can prove this person innocent - what do you do?
    • A. 

      I do not hesitate to help because I believe in their good intentions, especially with the evidence that I can prove them innocent. They are obviously a better person now.

    • B. 

      It makes sense to give a second chance, so I'll help the guy out since they're obviously innocent. But if something were to happen to them afterwards, that's karma.

    • C. 

      I would deliberate on it, but probably end up helping them since they're innocent this time.

    • D. 

      I would help them, but only because this time they are innocent. Afterwards though, I would demand payment, as it is my right since they stole from me years ago.

    • E. 

      I would offer to help them if they agreed on paying back what they owed. Fair is far.

    • F. 

      No! They did me wrong those years ago and now, obviously they are about to pay for it. Teaches them for stealing!

  • 10.

      The winds of adventure and the world as my playground.

  • 11.

      A boring, uneventful life - a loss of imagination.

      Being isolated and alone, without the people who make me feel important, wanted.
