Answering truthfully, I got
Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are male.
2. You are still a teenager, but won't be one for very much longer.
3. You're in college and are already worried about finding the perfect job that will be both fulfilling and will pay well. Your future worries you more than you'd like to admit.
4. You have beautiful, silky brown hair and big eyes.
5. You know that if you'd only believe in yourself more, things would be much easier for you. Yet you still doubt your instincts more than you should, instead of trusting them every time.

So, how did we do? How many of these did we get right? Tell us in the comments!

Half of one. Almost. I used to have beautiful, silky brown hair. And small eyes.

They offered me Pixar characters, I picked Merida! They offered me food, I picked salad! A lot of my demographic never wears makeup!

ETA: Oh, I got Mungo's results! Except he has nooooooooooo trouble believing in himself. None.

You still have beautiful silky hair, and brownish is clearly applicable.
However, I don't really think of you as having small eyes, but my memory's lousy.

Don't be perturbed, I got:
1. You are female.
2. You are currently in your mid fifties.
3. You have a wonderful big family and a deep loving connection with your lifelong partner.
4. You have Short hair, light colored eyes and stylish glasses.
5. You have long ago decided to live every minute to the fullest. Your life experiences taught you that no moment should be wasted on something or someone you don't love.

So, right on number one, and yes I do have a deep and loving connection to Mr B, but I am in my (late) mid forties, I have long hair, dark eyes and no glasses (actually, I do have a pair of magnifiers for fine sewing and 4pt text, but they get worn for an hour a month and aren't staggeringly stylish), no children, few remaining relatives I bother talking to, and I waste a lot of moments on things I think are a bit interesting, but certainly don't love. (I, too, picked Merida and salad, because they were clearly the best options in those sets!)

It appears 1.5 is all they can manage :-)

(The BBC brain sex quiz routinely announced I was a perfectly average mid-20s man, that was my fave ;-))

I'm a balding middle-aged man--and happy with life

The answer to _their_ question is evidently no. They can't guess.... I'd also give them 1.5 out of 5 (two at best).

5. is the only one I could agree with completely. And the more factual the answer, the more wrong it is.

Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are male.
2. You are currently in your mid fifties, still working hard and enjoying every minute of it.
3. You are starting to go bald, but you don't care about it as much as you thought you would when you were younger. You still have your good looks, your gray eyes and your sense of humor.
4. You have a beautiful loving family, great life-long friends, even the doctor is happy with your annual check up!
5. Things are generally good, and you just wish they'll stay that way for much, much longer.

I got same answers as you and none of the answers are right about me. (as I had not read any comments before, for a moment I wondered: "Do they just have ONE answer?)

Well - I guess some people would say I should believe in myself more, but unfortunately they are just mistaken.

One-and-a-bit for me, too. It got my age and marital status right, but not sex, parenthood, physical description or ... whatever the other one was.

Really quite a way off the mark!

Seriously? The salad answer should have told them that you were female.

Here is our best guess at who you are:
1. You are male.
2. You are in currently in your mid 30's.
3. You are married and just became a parent. You are experiencing exciting days, and more are on their way, but through it all you remain strong, loving and deeply caring.
4. You have short hair - partly gray, brown eyes and a fit body.
5. You decided long ago that your kids must have a better childhood than the one you had. You know you'll do anything to make sure of that.


Late 30s, married, brown eyes. None of the rest is even slightly right.

I got exactly the same results as you. I have brown hair and I'm worried about the future, but otherwise nothing. I trust my instincts, and my instincts say that believing in yourself is largely the result of how successful you've already been and what your chances are, not the other way around. Neo-liberal bullshit.

I picked Merida, but I also uncharacteristically picked the burger because I was really protein-deprived that day.
