What Does Your Latte Say About You?

What Your Latte Says About You

When it comes to what you like, you have your own unique tastes. And people don’t really understand them.

You are a very serious person. You don’t have time for silly antics.

Intense and energetic, you aren’t completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls.

You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it.

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are complex and philosophical, but you are never arrogant.

Okay, I know this is completely silly, but what was your answer? (I also wonder why we like taking such silly quizzes when we know they have no basis in reality).

    Well, I don’t like my café polluted with milk or sugar, which wasn’t an option. Nonetheless, I am, supposedly:

    You are interested in only pure and simple pleasures. You don’t like to pollute your body or mind.
    You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.
    Intense and energetic, you aren’t completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls.
    You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it.
    You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.
    You are expressive and friendly, but you are never pushy.

    I might go along with the “addicted to caffeine” bit (does that mean I’m agreeing with the “[t]here’s no denying it” bit?), but I certainly don’t bounce off walls, except when screaming at the piss-poor performance of the Irish and English rugby teams in the current World Cup.

    Why do we take these silly quizzes? Because you ask us too…! ;-)
    (Is there a silly quiz about taking silly quizzes?)

    You are very decadent in all aspects of your life. You never scale back, and you always live large.
    You are a very frivolous person. You don’t take anything too seriously. Why should you?
    Intense and energetic, you aren’t completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls.
    You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it.
    You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

    Aren’t some of these results mutually exclusive?

    Why do a I take these quizs? Because they’re sort of fun:o)

    You are deep and thoughtful, but you are never withdrawn.

    Hmm, perhaps someone should write a “what sort of silly quiz are you?” quiz.

    Bob (I think I drank a Latte once, but only out of curiosity)

    The man breaking out in uncontrollable giggles on the way to the pub to watch tonight’s game is me…

    With a bit o’luck the Irish will then beat the French (which means France will probably next make it to the next round of the tournament, a bit embarrassing when yer the hosts and one of the favourites to make it to the final), and then I’ll be laughing hysterically on the way back…

    But since I live in France that, well, er, maybe I’ll just stick to the giggling…

    You don’t treat yourself very often. You find that indulging doesn’t jibe with your very disciplined life.

    You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious.

    Intense and energetic, you aren’t completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls.

    You have a healthy relationship with caffeine. You’re definitely not dependent on it.

    You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

    You are exotic and cosmopolitan, but you are never a show off.

    Very odd. I just skipped the “what kind of milk” question, since I don’t actually drink lattes. (I do find it interesting that I’m “a very serious person” with “no time for silly antics” and yet I “don’t ever miss the opportunity to do something playful.” I also do in fact treat myself often; I just don’t think adding stuff to my Sumatran Mandheling is a “treat”…)

    You don’t treat yourself very often. You find that indulging doesn’t jibe with your very disciplined life.

    You are a very serious person. You don’t have time for silly antics.

    You have a good deal of energy, but you pace yourself. You never burn out too fast.

    You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it.

    You are a child at heart, and you don’t ever miss the opportunity to do something playful.

    You are complex and philosophical, but you are never arrogant.
