New Quiz: What’s Your Glass of Wine?

What glass of wine should you pour yourself?

Do you like a glass of wine on occasion? I do, and I especially enjoy a glass of wine when the weather starts to cool down like it has been. Like many people, I like wine quite a bit but don’t know much about it. I’ll be honest – I tend to go for the cheaper stuff at Trader Joe’s!

I recently have been reading up more on wine though… not to be a snob but to make sure I can drink the kind of wine I’m craving. Like when the weather gets cooler, I’ll switch to darker reds instead of the white summery Texas wines I love so much. Anyway, some of my new found knowledge inspired me to write a quiz.

Whether you’re a wine lover or wine hater, you’ll know more about yourself after taking my latest personality test: What’s Your Glass of Wine? Let me know what you get and what you think of your result. Are you a big wine drinker?

New Quiz: What Kind of Party Should You Throw?

What party should you host?

Are you a party person? I’m guessing that most of my fellow introvert readers don’t exactly love parties – at least, not traditional ones. I sometimes like parties. It depends on the type of party and the mood that I’m in. I will admit that parties aren’t the easiest for a hardcore introvert like myself. However, I have met some interesting people at parties over the years, especially the more low key, conversational ones.

A friend recently suggested to me that some people who don’t like going to parties may actually really enjoy hosting parties. This makes a lot of sense to me. I’m most comfortable around people I know, so hosting my own party would ensure that. Also, hosting a party keeps the host quite busy, which can be a good distraction from social pressure.

I think whether it’s fun to host a party or not comes down to what type of party you’re hosting. More introverted types like myself may enjoy a quiet affair with close friends. More extroverted people (like my best friend in high school) may prefer a party full of surprises and lots of guests.  I personally love the idea of a party built around a theme or event, so that people have something to naturally talk about.

Thinking about the types of parties people could host depending on their personalities was an interesting exercise for me. It led to my latest quiz, What Kind of Party Should You Throw? Let me know what you got on this one, as well as what you think of parties in general.
