Take our Personality Test!
In our previous article, we challenged you to take the Piranha Personality Challenge, to find out how you can go about making your home office your happiest place.
There are seven answers to each question, tick all the answers that resonate with you and make a note of the answer number for each question.
So, what are you waiting for? Let’s get started!
Q1 – How would you best describe your fashion sense?
1 Understated and elegant
2 Modern - if it’s in this season’s magazines, I’m wearing it
3 A little bit of old mixed with a little bit of new; shabby chic and vintage - I like to exude an air of class
4 I like exclusivity and one-offs that nobody else will be wearing; it makes me unique. I like to stand out, and my diversity speaks for itself most of the time
5 I love my pyjamas. End of
6 Depends on my mood and how I feel on the day; one day an outfit could make me feel a million dollars and the same outfit could make me feel frumpy and self-conscious the next
7 Whatever’s comfortable and quickest to iron. I’ve got too many things to worry about and far too many people to see, to even waste time on thinking about what to wear
Q2 - Finish this sentence “I can’t wait for ….”
1 The train to arrive
2 The designer sales
3 Christmas and all things seasonal
4 The new iPhone
5 This questionnaire to end
6 Valentine’s Day
7 This food I ordered, I’m starving!
Q3 - It’s your partner’s birthday soon, what are you planning to get them?
1 I’ve already ordered the personalised card, ordered the cake, arranged the day - right down to the tiniest detail, and the gift? Well, something symbolic to signify the very first day we met, of course!
2 I’ll decide nearer the time, it’s ages away (one week), I’ll find something (the day before), in good time (on a last minute dash)
3 Wait! What? Is it my partner’s birthday! When? How did you know?
4 I’m thinking of buying them the very latest and most expensive gadget of ‘course! Along with a weekend away in that new, luxury hotel everyone seems to be talking about
5 I don’t celebrate birthdays; it’s too much hassle
6 I’ll buy them a drink when we’re out and about at the weekend or something
7 Something practical and useful
Q4 - Your ideal Saturday night meal is…
1 I detox at weekends; I’m on this crazy new celebrity diet
2 Meal? Who eats meals? Liquid lunch all the way with plenty of junk food after! Happy days
3 I was going to give that delicious new recipe a go, but then again, there’s always fish & chips or a last minute takeaway… Yes! Sofa, movie, Chinese; perfect!
4 A nice luxury meal out with some close friends to let off some steam
5 Comfort food with my family, around the dinner table
6 Pizza, obviously… what else?
7 I’m already full from lunch, maybe something light if I get peckish…
Q5 - Working from home, you are most likely to be wearing:
1 A smart pair of slacks, a crisp shirt and neat shoes, with just the right balance of class, just in case I need to rush out and visit a client
2 Pyjamas of course! I’m at home; nobody can see me!
3 One of my favourite tops to put me in a good mood; I’m determined to have a productive day today
4 Whatever I feel comfortable in, really
6 A onesie, just for a laugh
7 Whatever I can find lurking around the bedroom floor
Q6 – Describe what typically sits on your office desk:
1 A monitor, keyboard, mouse, a coaster and the current four client files I’m working on. I keep my Mac book on the side in case I need to visit a client. Everything else is neatly put away in storages cases and filing cabinets
2 A frame of me and my loved ones; a hot drink; stationary (I love stationary!); some writing pads; a diary; a desk calendar; a few pens and then some more pens; various pencils; paper clips, a stapler, a hole punch… oh, and a ruler; a motivational quote of the day flipbook; a box of tissues; various shapes of post-it notes; some mints and other hard-boiled sweets, etc.… Oh and my computer!
4 A few magazines, a state of the art desktop monitor, a pen, a funky globe and my phone
5 Nothing, I lock everything away in the storage cabinet
6 Currently, there are some bags from my shopping spree at the weekend, a bowl of half-eaten cereal, some unopened post and the cat. Can’t see what else is underneath all that
7 A phone, a computer, headphones and an iPad
Q7 - You are most likely to say:
1 Less is more
2 Think outside of the box
3 Creativity is intelligence having fun
4 Time is money
5 Everything happens for a reason
6 There is no time like the present
7 I’m not lazy; I’m just in energy saving mode
Q8 – What do you look forward to the most?
1 Summer time, obviously!
3 Occasions and Celebrations
4 Work, because it’s my happy place
5 Shopping, naturally!
6 Time with my family
7 Autumn and winter when it is most romantic!
Q9 - What is currently on your windowsill?
1 Venetian blinds, what else?
3 A money plant and Polly (my cat)
4 Everything I don’t want on my desk, in fact, I really must get round to clearing that soon
5 Dust. Lots of it
6 Beautiful cream voile panels, with the most exquisite velveteen drapes and intricately handmade pullbacks
7 I don’t have a windowsill in my office, thanks for reminding me that my office resembles a prison cell
Q10 - When you read the following sentence, what instantly comes to mind?
“Keep on dreaming.”
1 Song lyrics
2 It’s that voice that tells me to go back to sleep when I hear my alarm in the morning
3 The world is my oyster
4 If I have no hope, I have nothing
5 I’m living the dream
6 My dreams won’t work unless I do
7 Dreams are just wishes and idealism, not reality
Q11 - How would you describe yourself as a friend?
1 I always try to be there for my friends, whenever and wherever; if someone needs me I will drop everything for them
2 I’m the agony aunt of my circle, always speaking of my lifelong experiences and dishing out good advice; and I’m usually right because I always end up saying the dreaded words “I told you so!”
3 I am often the reserved one in my carefully selected group of friends, but once I get to know someone or I’m not in such a big crowd of people, I really open up
4 I am fun loving, would do anything for anyone, happy go lucky, optimistic and always look on the bright side of life
5 I don’t trust anyone; if I let my barriers down, it just gives people the opportunity to hurt me
6 I have a few very close friends who are like family to me; the rest are just acquaintances, really as they don’t know the real me
7 I can adapt my personality and character to those around me. I’m not sure why or how but it just happens and tends to make the people around me quite comfortable
