There are a lot of incredibly positive things about joining the United States Marines. When you sign up to be a part of the Marines, not only are you serving your country with pride and honor by joining the ultimate fighting force this country has to offer, you're also pushing yourself in all sorts of ways. There is no way anyone could join the Marine Corps and not come out stronger, whether mentally or physically. You're not only being a good patriot and learning valuable skills, you're also putting yourself to the ultimate test.
But not everyone is cut out to be a part of the Marine Corps. If you aren't, this isn't an insult, and it doesn't mean that you're not tough. It just means that some people are cut out for it and some aren't. For example, if you're an artistic type that likes to think for yourself and not the type who tends to follow the rules, then you probably aren't going to be someone who does well in the Marines. Take this quiz and we'll tell you whether your personality is a good fit for the Marine Corps. Then drop and give us 20.
