How many times have you been told that you are high maintenance? Whether you agreed or disagreed depends on how well you know yourself, but have you ever wondered if there's any truth to it? Now's your chance to find out exactly how high maintenance you are in percentage form! Then, when someone says it again, you will have concrete proof to counter or to validate them! 

If you get fussy when your plans are slightly altered for you, you might fall higher on the high maintenance scale than others. But are you truly high maintenance? A lot of times, our specific demands can be misconstrued as being something we're not. Merely wanting a metal fork instead of a plastic one with your takeout meal doesn't make you necessarily high maintenance. 

As we go through this quiz, we want to take a holistic look at your personality and your lifestyle. Once we get to know you better than your own mother, we'll be able to tell you where you fall on the high maintenance scale. 

Pour yourself a nice glass of Moscato, and answer as honestly as you can. After you know your high maintenance percentage, you can flash it around like a membership card! Are you ready to know once and for all?
