About This Quiz

Can you think of any other professions in the world, outside of the military, of course, that are more challenging and more important than being a firefighter or a police officer? Both of these jobs have a lot in common, and to do either you need to be brave, heroic and ready to put yourself in danger at a moment's notice. Both jobs also involve a lot of downtime, where you sit around and basically do nothing, but you still have to be prepared to face an emergency.

Maybe you would be wonderful at either job, or maybe you would rather not do either of them, but either way, there are certain aspects of your personality that would make you better at one job or the other. Would you rather be chilling out while pulling a speed trap on a quiet country road, or chilling out at the firehouse with the rest of the crew? Would you be more afraid of entering a 5-alarm fire to save the lives of a family, or negotiating the freedom of hostages who have been taken by armed criminals? Most importantly, would you feel sexier dressed as a cop or a fireman? Take this quiz and we'll tell you which your personality is most like.
