I don't usually do this type of thing, but this quiz sized me up just a little too well. Kinda spooky.

Guess I need to work on my Swedish accent.

There's just no bad result on this quiz isn't there? I'm a Jackie!

Lisa said...

I'm an Ingrid too - and I agree, freakishly accurate results. I read them going, "Wait, how the hell did they know that?"

Anonymous said...

That really is eerily accurate - although I shouldn't be surprised because the two questions are so detailed. I'm an Audrey.

Holy crap...I was a Marilyn. I wasn't expecting that, but after reading the description I see that it's right on.

Kim Mance said...

I'm also a Bette, but with such an array of cool women, you really can't go wrong. Fun quiz! I blogged about it.

Dude, none of the questions even remotely fit me. I get the feeling that I would probably have been Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh. (Heh)
