Winnie the Pooh Personality Types Test
I have been convinced for some time that just about every person I know can be placed in one of four personality categories - based on the classic characters from A.A. Milne's beloved children's story Winnie The Pooh. This is personality test is based strictly on my own personal observations and although I think it's spot on, you may think it's crazy.
If you think this is ridiculous, you should stop reading right now. It gets worse.
Here's how it works. I'm going to tell you a story that will end with "what would you do?" I want you to think about your answer before scrolling down to see which character you are most like. Go with your first instinct. The first thing that pops into your head. Got it?
The Rock in Your Path
Imagine yourself hiking in the woods. The birds are singing, the air is fresh and feels good to breath. You're walking. You're patting yourself on the back for getting some exercise. You've been hiking along for sometime now and the path is heavily wooded all around you. You see something up ahead. As you get closer you realize that there, in the middle of the path is a boulder. Not just a rock, but a boulder.
What is your first thought?
What will you do? What is the first thing that comes to mind?
Scroll down past the video and answer the question in the poll.
Poetry, Music and Famous Pooh Bear Quotes
So what do you do when faced with the boulder in your path? What was your very first thought?
Who Are You Anyway?
When I first heard this story, I immediately thought I would like to sit down and have a snack, drink some water and think about the situation. If that was your answer, you are a cuddly Pooh Bear. You like sweets, warm fires and good chatting. You also come up with ideas easily, at odd moments and they are not always all that useful. You stumble into your own brilliance from time to time. You don't care for rushing, schedules and rules. Blue is your color.
If you didn't miss a step and just started climbing straight up over it, you are most like Rabbit. You don't waste time, you have a schedule to keep and things to do. You don't have time for boulders in your path because you have a garden that needs tending to or a conference call to make from your cell phone on the other side of the mountain. You are a highly motivated leader and enjoy being in charge and telling everyone around you how to do everything . The world would not exist without you, because you are busy spinning it! The color red suits you jus tfine.
Did you bounce, run or skip around that boulder? You know who you are! You are fun loving Tigger! An eternal optimist, that boulder didn't bother you at all. You knew you could get around it somehow. A super-social animal, you love to know what everyone is up too and you are always there to cheer up a friend and make people laugh. You are a ray of light where ever you go. Yellow is your color.
Woe is me. Did you get mad at that boulder? Did you say oh, man, why does this always happen to me? Now you are really going to be upset. You are most like Eeyore. You can be just a tad pessimistic. You love the rain. You write poetry. You are as deep as your friend Tigger is light. You bring logic and balance to those around you.You don't mind being alone, but a few close friends around you make you feel completely content. You love the intense colors of the autumn leaves.
The Winnie the Pooh Ride at The Magic Kingdom
For Winnie the Pooh Fans of All Personality Types
This is completely off the topic, for Pooh Bear fans only! As for the Winnie the Pooh ride at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, I just had to include it here. I am not a lifelong fan of these characters but have been enjoying them with my children. This ride is pretty simple - but I just love it! I was not prepared for the bouncing tigger part. Yes, you feel like you are bouncing along Tigger style in your little cart. Silly fun. The kids love it and my sister (a very serious lawyer most of the time) and I had a blast. So much so, that when the ride was over and we were herded out into the strategically placed gift shop, we just had to buy something. I guess I am just a kid at heart.
