About This Quiz

Catchphrases aren't just for cartoon characters! Real-life, regular people repeat certain phrases all the time, like, "What's shaking," "Thanks in advance," "It is what it is" and "Just sayin'." You might like it when people have real-life catchphrases, or you might think it's annoying, but either way, you probably have a few go-to sayings of your own. And that's what this quiz is all about!

The real-life catchphrases you find yourself using have a lot to do with your personality. It's easy to imagine a laidback surfer saying, "It's all good," but a Wall Street CEO? Not so much! Likewise, it wouldn't seem weird if your Valley girl cousin said, "Sorry, not sorry," but can you imagine a 90-year-old nun saying the same thing?

To guess your real-life catchphrase, we need to know all about YOU. You're going to have to answer a series of hypothetical, personality-revealing questions, such as "Let's say you did something terrible and need to make a thorough apology. How do you start it?" and "Your mom shows up to your 21st birthday in a red dress, eager to go out on the town. What do you do?" By the end of the quiz, we'll have your number — and your catchphrase!
