Sparksnotes Personality Quizzes Are Seriously Underrated

 

Move aside, Buzzfeed. There’s a new kid on the block, and it can also help you cheat on your 11th grade English homework.

Apparently, Sparknotes has its own blog that sort of serves as a well-read (literally) Buzzfeed, complete with titles like “Everything I Know About Dating, I Learned From Romeo And Juliet” (I sincerely hope not), or “7 Books That Actually SHOULD Be Banned” (it suggests Carrie since it “gives teens unrealistic expectations for prom,” which … fair). Nestled safely within this net of clickbait are the quizzes. The person responsible for writing most of them, Courtney Gorter, is a cool gay woman with a wicked sense of a humor and an even wickeder Twitter that I would highly recommend checking out alongside the big wide world of Sparknotes that I previously had no idea existed.

 

Being that Sparknotes is still essentially an e-cheat sheet, these quizzes all have some vague relation to famous literature—but that doesn’t make them any less entertaining. For example, you can cover all of your time-traveling bases with “How Dateable Would You Be In The 15th Century?” and its sequel, “How Dateable Would You Be In The 16th Century?” Hint: the length of your neck is critical.

How about “Are You An Introvert, An Extrovert, Or A Trickster God?” I propose that these three identities take the place of the male-female sex binary.

Having left my dishes in the sink for three days, I turned to “Are You A Bad Roommate?” which took about the same amount of time to complete as it would have to pick up a scrub brush. 

 

 

(I’m just going to ignore that.)

 

Continuing the tradition of the Bard in a manner I’m sure he would have approved of if he could get past the Internet as a form of advanced witchcraft, there are a fair amount of Shakespeare themed quizzes as well. Do you want to learn “Which Shakespeare Archetype [You Are]”? How about “How [You Would] Die In A Shakespeare Play”?

Good for a short giggle or some serious introspection, I’d suggest filling out a few of these for yourself.
