New Quiz: The Vintage Sneaker Test

Five vintage sneakers

Which of these sneakers would you like to wear the most? Take my latest image quiz to see what your vintage sneaker says about you.

Do you wear sneakers often? I know that some consider them a fashion faux pas, but I think sneakers can be quite fashionable if done right. I’m especially a fan of vintage style sneakers in simple, but bold, colors. I think a minimalist sneaker can look quite cool with jeans or other casual wear. Would fancier shoes often look better? Maybe, but my feet need to be comfortable.

I wear sneakers a good deal of the time. I do a lot of walking in my everyday life, and I can only go a mile or two in non-sneaker shoes, even if they are designed for walking. I own a few pairs of colorful, simple sneakers, and I mix them up depending on my mood or outfit. I hope they pass as stylish, but luckily, I live in an area that is more casual than fashion forward anyway.  I think the most important thing for looking stylish in sneakers is intention. If you pick out cool looking sneakers that complement your outfit, you can fit in anywhere – even Paris! (Do you agree or disagree? Let me know in the comments!)

What sort of sneakers do you like? And what do they say about you? Take The Vintage Sneaker Test to find out.  Comment below to let me know what you get on this quiz… and what you think about wearing sneakers in general.

Quiz: The Inkblot Test

inkblot from inkblot test

Have you ever taken an inkblot test or a Rorschach test? I don’t believe I have ever taken one, but I have seen many inkblot tests depicted in films and television. It’s interesting to me that this old form of psychological testing is still so prevalent in entertainment, even though I don’t think it’s used much by actual psychologists any longer. I think many of us believe that the things we might seek in inkblots or other abstract images says quite a bit about us.

I did some research on the Rorschach test when writing this quiz, and I found some really interesting information. Inkblot tests are primarily used in the United States, and forensic psychologists still use them relatively often. I guess that may be why inkblot tests come up in TV and film… they are a part of a crime thriller story line.

The most interesting thing I learned is that while some inkblot test answers are cross cultural, many inkblot test answers are region specific. When people from some countries see bats, people from other countries see butterflies. More revealing is the fact that Americans tend to see humans when other people from other countries see various animals.

I wanted to write my own Rorschach or inkblot test because I’ve never had the chance to take one. If you are in a similar situation, then check out: The Inkblot Test. There are many possible outcomes for this quiz, so see how you compare to everyone else! Comment below and let me know what you got.

New Quiz: The Surfboard Test

Which of these surfboards do you like the best? Take this quick quiz to learn your surfing personality.

Do you like to surf? Or have you dreamed about learning to surf? It’s still on my bucket list to at least get up on a surfboard and ride the waves… although I’m not sure I’d be very good at it. It’s hard enough for me to balance on one foot for yoga. I can’t imagine how crazy it would be to balance on top of a chaotic surfboard. It sounds like a fun challenge though!

I’ll admit that I don’t know much about surfing, but I grew up dreaming about it thanks to all the Beach Boys music they played on my local radio station. Later on, I got inspired to surf by watching The Endless Summer and Step Into Liquid. And the little time I have spent in surf towns has been amazing. They have a laid back vibe that I can really appreciate. Little sounds better to me than surfing in the morning and writing quizzes by the beach in the afternoon 😉

What about you? Does surfing sound like fun? Find out what kind of surfer you would be with The Surfboard Test. (And if you’re a personality theory nerd, you’ll notice I based this off the NT, NF, SP, and SJ temperament types!) Let me know what you get on this one in the comments below.

Quiz: The Summer Test

six summer scenes

Which summer scene is the most appealing to you?

Is everyone having a good summer so far? I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how lovely my summer has been. Texas isn’t exactly known for its beautiful summers, but this summer has been pretty mild by our standards. Any summer where a breezy morning or evening walk is all that I can ask for. Plus, it’s even been nice enough for me to garden without having to water my plants four times a day. I’ve got a great collection of basil growing, which is great for those light summer pasta dishes 🙂

Many of you have expressed to me that summer isn’t exactly your favorite season, and I can see why. We more serious types love the coziness and quiet of fall and winter. This summer, I’ve tried to make things more manageable by trying to find some of that coziness wherever I can. Instead of cozying up with a blanket and a book, I lay out under my ceiling fan with my reading. (Current choice – A Tree Grows in Brooklyn.) I’ve also made my summer a bit more fun by embracing some new summery traditions. For example, I love having a bit of watermelon with my breakfast!

Whether you love summer or simply think it’s okay, I hope you enjoy this image quiz of relaxing summer scenes: The Summer Test. Let me know what you get, and how your summer has been going.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

New Quiz: The Abstract Eye Test

nine funky abstract eyes

Which of these abstract eyes are you most drawn to?

Do you think people’s eyes reveal a lot about their personalities? If you’re like most Blogthings visitors, the answer is “yes”! Quizzes dealing with the subject of eyes are very popular, and the all time favorite is The Eye Test. Many friends and family members have told me that quiz is their favorite, and I think I understand why. Eyes are one of the first things we notice about a person, and one of the last things we forget. We look in someone’s eyes to try to see if she loves us… or if she’s lying.

I tried to find actual scientific evidence that eyes reveal our personalities or moods, but I wasn’t able to find anything to base a quiz on. Intuitively, though, I know we can learn a lot about people from their eyes. And I’m not talking color as much as I am expression and shape. Do you agree? Are you drawn to people with expressive eyes?

I lucked out and recently found more images from the artist who did the images for The Eye Test in my collection of purchased images for this site. Is everyone ready to do a round 2 for The Eye Test? The The Abstract Eye Test is similar to the original, except the images and results are very different. Find out how you see the world, and how the world sees you. As always, let me know what you think of your result!

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on The Abstract Eye Test? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you think your eyes fit your personality? What do they reveal about you?
  3. Have you ever learned something about someone by looking into his or her eyes? What did you learn?
  4. Take The Wild Eye Makeup Test? What do you think of your result?

New Quiz: The Mediterranean Food Test

various mediterranean foods

Which of these mediterranean foods do you like best?

Do you like mediterranean food? I am a huge fan of this region’s cuisine! I could probably easily eat my weight in hummus alone, and I love how fresh and healthy so many mediterranean options are. It’s one of my go to cuisines on a warm summer day… Give me a few kabobs, rice / couscous, salads, veggies, dips, whatever! I don’t know if eating this way makes you healthier or not (some studies say yes!), but I hope it does. I could eat this way forever.

My absolute favorite mediterranean food is falafel, but not just any kind… European street style. Those of you who have spent time in Europe know exactly what I mean. Lucky for me, there are is an Amsterdam falafel restaurant right down the street from me here in Austin. I know I’m very spoiled 😉

When I saw the above image of amazing mediterranean foods, I knew I had to write a quiz about it… even if there was no falafel. (Falafel quiz to come, I’m sure!) I hope it makes you as hungry as it made me: The Mediterranean Food Test Comment below and let me know what you get 🙂

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on The Mediterranean Food Test? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you like mediterranean food? What kinds? Is it something you go out for… or do you know how to cook it at home?
  3. If you could visit anywhere in the mediterranean, where would you choose to go?  (Let’s say this includes southern France, Spain, Italy, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Israel, Lebanon, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. Whew!)
  4. Eggplant is a big part of mediterranean cuisine but a divisive vegetable for many in the United States. Do you like eggplant?
  5. Take The Italian Food Test What do you think of your result?

New Quiz: The Red Nail Polish Test

five different colors of red nail polish

What shade of red nail polish best suits your personality? (Guys can take this quiz too!)

As far as the world is concerned, summertime is peak toe season. It’s the prime time to have feet on display, and I think we all like our piggies to look their best. (This goes for you too guys! I think sandals look great on guys.) I don’t always have polished toenails, but I try to enjoy them in the summer. I do them myself, because I’m too cheap and impatient to get a pedicure. I just get my supplies together, turn on a movie on Netflix, and get to painting.

I just read that the newest nail color for summer is denim. Cute idea, but I think I’ll stick with basic colors, like red. Red never goes out of style, and there’s a shade of red that looks good on everyone. Red nail polish signifies bold, “look at me” nails and toes. Red is a color for when you’re feeling confident… or for when you need a confidence boost. You can never go wrong with red!

Because I am feeling summery, I thought it would be fun to devote a whole image quiz to red nail polish. I stuck to five shades, although I know there are thousands to choose from 🙂 If you’re a guy (or not a nail polish fan), you can still take this quiz. The results are gender neutral and not beauty related. If you don’t do your own nails, just pick the color you think would look best on someone else: The Red Nail Polish Test. Let me know what you think of your result below!

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on The Red Nail Polish Test? Is it true for you?
  2. Is there anything you do to get ready for summer, beauty / body wise? Tan? Get fit? Manicure or pedicure?
  3. Do you prefer red nail polish or another color?

New Quiz: The Modern Painting Test

What does the modern painting you like best say about you? Take this image quiz to find out.

What does the modern painting you like best say about you? Take this image quiz to find out.

Do you like modern paintings? I like some of them. I’ll be the first to admit that the modern wing of most museums aren’t my favorite place to hang out. They’re a little more hit or miss for me. As far as modern paintings go, I like paintings full of landscapes, people, buildings, animal, or just plain stuff. If that’s not quite modern enough for you, then I also like paintings that are full of color and busyness, even if they aren’t about anything in particular. What I’m not a fan of, however, is paintings that are very simple – of one shape or color. Or even just a canvas painted one color. I guess I just don’t get those 😉

Despite my modern art pickiness, I do want to like more of it, especially paintings. I already love modern architecture (so much), design, photography, some drawing, some sculpture… I’d love to add paintings to my list. In some ways, I feel like it’s the last piece in the puzzle for me truly appreciating all forms of art. And it would be nice not to rush through the modern part of the art museum every time I go 🙂

So when I found some modern paintings that I loved, I knew I had to make a quiz out of them. I hope you like looking at these at much as I did. Take The Modern Painting Test, and let me know what you get. Also, comment below to let me know what you think of modern art.

New Quiz: What Does Your Birth Flower Say About You?

yellow daffodil in a field

What is your birth month’s flower? And what does it say about you?

Did you know that we all have birth flowers? I had no idea until I recently read an article about them. It turns out that birth flowers are a long honored tradition, dating back to the Romans (if you believe Wikipedia!). Over the years, different cultures have designated different flowers for each time of the year – with a lot of overlap. Just like with gemstones, there isn’t necessarily one flower for your month … it depends on region and tradition. However, the flowers for each month tend to be very similar and from the same family.

Needless to say, when I discovered birth flowers, I knew I had to write a quiz about them. I love flowers – not so much getting them but actually appreciating them in nature. I think it’s cool that flowers come with meanings, symbolism, and tradition attached to them. Clearly, they are a great topic for a quiz, and what gets easier than having to simply pick out your birth month.

So if you’re looking for some quick fun, take What Does Your Birth Flower Say About You? This is one of my quick, instant gratification quizzes 🙂 Let me know what you get, and what you think of your result.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on What Does Your Birth Flower Say About You? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you have a favorite flower? What is it? How did it come to be your favorite?
  3. Have you ever gotten flowers for your birthday or a special occasion? What do you think of flowers as a gift?
  4. When was the last time you gave someone flowers?
  5. Take What Color Flower Are You? What do you get? Is it true for you?

New Quiz: The Guitar Test

3 electric guitars

What does the guitar you like best say about you? Take this quick quiz to find out.

Have you ever dreamed of playing guitar? I have! My dream of playing guitar came a bit late in life, after meeting Mr. Blogthings – who happens to be an amazing guitarist. I totally got the guitar bug from him, but I haven’t had time to learn much yet. (I do bang on the drums on occasion though.) I hope that at least one day I can become a decent guitarist. I love the idea of being able to make great music with just my voice and guitar. Of course, I’d have to have a good singing voice too… that’s another story for another quiz 😉

I love the way that guitar sounds, especially heavy metal guitar – something I never thought I would develop a taste for. I also like heavier power pop type guitar sounds. Classical guitar is nice too, although I’m still learning to develop a deeper appreciation for that. As someone who grew up playing piano, I was a little slow to appreciate how talented guitarists can be and how great guitar music is. I’m sad it took me a while, but now I’m hooked!

When I came across a collection of cool guitar pictures, I knew I was going to have to base a quiz around them. Here it is: The Guitar Test! I think you’ll like this one whether you’re a musician or not. It tells you why you rock 🙂

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on The Guitar Test? Is it true for you?
  2. Do you play guitar? If not, have you ever wanted to learn guitar?
  3. What kind of guitar music do you prefer? Electric guitar? Acoustic guitar? Classical guitar?
  4. Who are some of your favorite guitarists?
  5. Take What Kind of Rocker Are You? What do you think of your result?
