You May Get

Traditional LD Debater

You are a basic debater. You believe following the rules is the only way to debate. The rules of the game do not change, and when people try to do so, you get very upset. At times you can be stubborn, but it wins you debates. "Ism" is your last name. You make sure to attack the framework of the round, but you’re not too worried about the cards. When it comes to being competitive, you score an 8.5!

Speech LD Debater

You are a very persuasive and I.E.-like debater. You love English class and performance. Being able to speak on a boring subject and actually be VERY interesting is easy to you. You don't care about your opponents' points, as long as you sound persuasive and BS your way through. To win a round, you love to use your last speech to make your performance of the debate seem better than it actually was. When it comes to being competitive, you score a 7.5!

Progressive LD Debater

You are a very policy-like debater. You love the national circuit, whether you are good in it or not, because of the competitiveness. In public you speak over people's heads. You love change and encourage others to do so. In a debate round, you would kill yourself if you even drop a quote about peanut butter being better than jelly, because it's a sign of weakness. When it comes to being competitive, you score a 9.9!
