Sometimes, these quizzes really do work!

Check out what I scored on this Facebook quiz:

You are German…

You are precise yet romantic, efficient yet dreamy, friendly yet somewhat suspicious of others. You rarely smile, but when you do it’s very meaningful. You like it best when there is a group consensus, and yet you are easily annoyed by the slowness and/or stupidity of others. Sometimes you think that if only you could live on an island or move to some wonderful place far away, everything would be better, and if you can’t realize this dream you often lose yourself in books/vacations/recipes/sports — anything for an escape! All in all, however, you make your peace with life, and have many old friends.

BTW, this is all true. Right down to the fact that I’m German. Never mind that it drew this conclusion by asking me some rather inane questions; the point is, it worked. Jawohl!

And now, a little musical interlude:

Auf Deutsch, natürlich.
