How You Act In These Circumstances Will Reveal What Kind Of Person You Are

Your actions can say a lot about you.

Posted on
  1. Your friend went on a date with someone new and thought it went amazingly well. However, four days later, they’ve heard absolutely nothing from their date. What do you say to comfort them?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I tell them that their date is probably busy or just trying not to seem too keen, so they shouldn’t jump to the worst possible conclusions right away.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I tell them not to waste their time hung up on someone who's clearly not that interested in them – they deserve better.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I try to distract them by going out with them and getting smashed.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I don’t say anything – I don’t know the full situation and I wouldn’t want to give some bad advice.
  2. &nbsp;Your partner has said something that really upset you. You know they didn’t mean to hurt you and it was only in passing, but that doesn’t lessen the sting. <br>How do you react?&nbsp;
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I tell them immediately that their behaviour is out of order and they can’t say that to me.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’m hurt, but I don’t say anything because I know it wasn’t malicious, unless they do it repeatedly.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I wait for them to notice that they’ve done something wrong – they should know they shouldn’t speak to me like that, and if they don’t figure that out, then they’ll never change their behaviour.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I say something back to them of the same caliber so they know how it feels.
  3. You have a friend who's ALWAYS 40 minutes late. <br>What do you do?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I don’t mind – I’m usually late as well so it works out.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I just tell them to meet me 40 minutes earlier than I intend to be there.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I tell them that it’s rude.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’d probably just hang out with them a lot less.
  4. You’re at a dinner party and sat next to someone who's obviously very sweet but very shy. If you don’t speak, then there's total radio silence between <br>you two. What do you do?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’d probably overcompensate and tell them my whole life story, as well as an entire stand-up routine.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I would do my best to ask interesting questions to get them talking.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Realistically I would probably get annoyed and frustrated and just speak to someone else.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’m exactly the same and I can never start conversations – maybe we would bond over that? Or sit in silence together.
  5. Your friend asks to borrow £200 from you, and you can afford to give it to them. They’re a very good friend, but they’re notoriously unreliable and terrible with money. They’re also not in DIRE need of the money. <br>What do you do?&nbsp;
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I give them the benefit of the doubt and lend them the money anyway. I’d hope they would do the same for me.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I lend them the money but with strict terms and maybe even something of theirs as collateral.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I make an excuse not to give them the money. Friendship is great, but I’m not going to put myself in any risk for their sake, especially when it’s not a dire need.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I don’t give them the money out of my own pocket, but I offer to help them raise it in some way.
  6. Imagine you do lend the money to your friend. Three months pass and your friend still hasn’t returned the money. You bring it up and they assure you they’ll return it, but another three months pass and nothing happens. What do you do?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I just ask them consistently until they give it back or one of us dies.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’d only have lent the money if they gave me collateral, so I remind them of that.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    At that point I just assume the money is gone forever. It’s not worth fighting with a friend over money.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I pester them for it consistently until I have it back. I don’t care if I lose a friend, because someone that takes advantage of you like this is not a friend.
  7. You’re at a party and someone keeps flirting with your partner, even though you’re quite obviously together. Your partner doesn’t flirt back but isn’t unflattered either. What do you do?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I don’t mind – my partner and I are not exclusive.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I kiss my partner and make it even more obvious that we’re together.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I quietly pull the person aside, away from my partner, and tell them to back off.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I’m mostly annoyed at my partner – why don’t THEY make it clear they’re not available?
  8. &nbsp;Someone keeps flirting with YOU, despite it being clear that you’re in a relationship. It’s subtle enough that it could just be friendly banter, but you can just sense it’s a little more than that. What do you do?&nbsp;
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I just avoid this person as much as I can.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I don’t acknowledge the flirtiness, but I’m as polite as I can be.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I mention my partner as often as I can, and if they still don't get the hint I explicitly say to them that they’re making me uncomfortable.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I flirt back! It’s harmless when there are obviously no other intentions, and it can be good for networking.
  9. You’re walking behind someone who's clearly in a rush, and you notice that they dropped a fiver. <br>What do you do?<br>
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I pick it up and chase them down to give it to them.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I pick it up and intend to give it to them, unless they’re way too fast because then they’d probably rather not be stopped anyway.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I leave it.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I take it for myself.
  10. &nbsp;Imagine there’s a zombie apocalypse. You and your best friend are running for your lives, but your friend gets injured and tells you to save yourself. <br>What do you do?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I help them, even if it costs my own life – what’s the point of surviving if you’re all alone?
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I abandon them – it’s better if at least one of us survives.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I help them as much as I can within reason – I’m not willing to give my own life, but I won’t abandon them.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    I just lie down and let the zombies take me – that’s not a world I want to live in.
