When choosing what sort of quiz to write for Blogthings, I try to think about the things that link us all. I want my quizzes to reach and impact as many people as possible, so I love to pick universal subjects – things we have all dealt with or can relate to. This is why so many of my quizzes are psychologically based (and well, I do love psychology). It’s also why I tackle topics like love, food, childhood, friendship, work, learning, and character. These are universals that connect us all, and no matter what your background is, you should be able to take the quiz as easily as the next person – even if the next person is twice your age and halfway around the globe.
Birthdays are another important universal we share… possibly the most important one. After all, they mark the occasion of use getting here 😉 So whenever I have the chance to write another birthday quiz, I jump on it. I started thinking recently about birthstones and their meaning. I have always felt attached to my birthstone, amethyst, and I wondered if others felt the same way. I thought exploring this birthday personality tradition could be interesting, because it’s a little different from the usual horoscope range. Plus, jewelry is pretty and shiny!
I did a lot of research on gemstones to write my latest quiz, and I hope you like it: What Does Your Birthstone Say About You? I thought the results I ended up with were really interesting. I feel like gemstone meanings are sort of a mix between astrology and color psychology, with color psychology possibly being the overriding force. I love mashups like this, and hopefully you do as well!
Take What Does Your Birthstone Say About You? and let me know what you get. Does your result fit you? How do you feel about your birthstone in general?
