About This Quiz

How much of a risk-taker are you? Do you talk to strangers and feel confident when visiting new cities? If someone offers you an opportunity you're not quite qualified for, do you leap at it or shy away? Do you welcome change, or is it your greatest enemy?

Whether you're the kind of person who adores the thrill of trying something you're not good at or the type of gal who shudders at the very word "unpredictable," this quiz is for you. We're going to ask you how you'd dress for various occasions, such as a first date, dinner with your boss and a 10-year high school reunion. We also want to know what you think of certain trends, such as the "cold shoulder" look, half-shaved hair and mesh shirts.

Your answers to these questions will tell us a lot about what your approach to risk is. It might sound funny, but there's a significant correlation between your willingness to wear gauchos in public and your other choices, such as whether you work for yourself or an established company, whether you enjoy travel, how open you are to dating people who are different from you and more. Think we're making some big assumptions? Prove us wrong: take this quiz!
