Triangle – most (a) answers

You’re the sentimental type: you still keep your elementary school ID in a drawer somewhere, and your prom clothes are in the closet as well. You spend your time researching your family tree and tending to peonies in the garden. You only sing when you’re taking a shower, and dancing is something you only do at a wedding. If you could, you would adopt every cat rubs up against your leg. You’re very dependable: your morality is very solid, since it has a strong base, and two arms.


Saxophone – most (b) answers

You are never bored – it takes a moment for you to come up with a new idea, which you usually follow up on. Sometimes you call up your friends late at night, because you’ve just finished watching a great movie, and you need to tell them all about it. Your doors are always open: in fact you could do without locks, since you keep losing your keys anyway. You like to stand out in a crowd (you despise the colour beige and boring mass produced clothing). Improvising is in your nature, and all your weekends are the stuff of legends. And of course you’re the protagonist of each story.


Guitar – most (c) answers

You’re often in the mood for blues, sometimes you’re all about rock’n’roll. You were the class treasurer in elementary school, even though you wanted to be the captain of a sports team. You have a… great sense of humour. In fact people call you “pancake”, because your jokes are so flat. You’re great in a crisis: you’re well prepared for any kind of disaster (your time in the Scouts was well spent).


Drums – most (d) answers

You paddle your own canoe and you’re also your own best friend. You enjoy travelling, choosing your destination on a whim. Your backpack is always ready for the road, since it already holds most of your belongings. You don’t have a savings account, nor any loyalty card. You like meeting new people, but you don’t get attached. And definitely you’re not one to dance to someone’s tune. If anything, you’re the one who sets the rhythm.


Piano – most (e) answers

You are trustworthy and respected. Being in your presence is like a visit to the Buckingham Palace. You recognize all the varieties of Brie cheese and you’re fairly certain, that your great-grandfather was French. You always felt more mature than others – even as a child you preferred watching the news rather than the Smurfs. You were a top student at school – although you were exempt from PE, you made up for in recitation competitions. You only value black and white cinema, and you quote Baumgarten during sleep. You’re convinced, that Minimalism will save the world.
