Travel Personality Quiz: What Type Are You?
One holiday down, one more to go. Here's hoping you all had a restful, fun and otherwise mirthful day yesterday. Now that we have New Year's Eve to look forward to, that means that something else may be on a lot of minds: where to travel in 2008.
Not going to suggest a bunch of ideas here, but pass on an interesting quiz that determines what sort of traveler you are. (What did we do before the Internet and all these time-killers arrived? Work, maybe?)
Anyhow, the quiz was developed by one Stanley C. Plog and can be found at Besttripchoices.com. It's called the Plog Travel Personality Quiz and is at the top of the page. I may just be late finding it, but hopefully I'm not the only one. I took it last week (it takes all of two minutes) and discovered that I'm a "centric venturer." You knew that, didn't you?
According to the results, "It would be easy to assume that you are simply an 'average' personality and do not go to extremes on most things. This assumption, however, would cover over your much more unique personality characteristics and behaviors. More than other groups, you use mixed transportation modes for leisure travel. In the same year, you are likely to fly to one or two destinations and drive to a couple of others. In contrast, your counterparts prefer either to fly (venturers) or drive (authentics). Although air travel saves tremendous amounts of time when the distances are great, the convenience of auto travel (take everything that you want with you and leave when you want to), along with the ability to move at your own pace provides its own inherent interest."
It goes on and on, but, I have to admit, it pretty much nailed me. Go ahead and take the quiz when you get the chance and report back. How does it measure up?
