About This Quiz

Most people in this world are kind individuals who express polite manners to each other. But sometimes, you'll find people who are a little too nice. People who tend to always agree with their friends and family, even if they're wrong. People who are too hard on themselves for not getting the right gift for someone. And of course, people who always worry about what others think of them. If you resonate with one or more of these, then this is the perfect quiz for you!

Now, remember, it's not necessarily a bad thing to be an overly sweet person. After all, it's always better to be too kind than to be too mean, right? But sometimes, kindness can backfire on an individual. Friends may start to notice such nice behavior traits, and some of them may even take advantage of this. For example, what if you're the type of person who is always covering shifts for people at work? You may start to be asked constantly about covering other shifts, even if it interferes with your own personal schedule. It's always important to be polite with others but also tough as well. Whether or not you're this type of person, take our sweet quiz to find out more about who you really are!
