The moment of truth… Tot up your answers and find out which Muppet you’re most like!
Mostly As You are Animal. Everything in life excites you. There are so many opportunities out there – especially a date with that hot chick/hunk – why do things by halves? Sometimes you get so fired up by an idea you can be a little scary, but actually you’re more thoughtful and deeper than many give you credit for.
Mostly Bs You are Gonzo. Whether it’s extreme sports or just a new way of working, if there’s a risk to be taken, you’ll seize it with both hands. One of a kind, you’re an optimistic daredevil who will dedicate yourself completely to a cause – regardless of its chances of success.
Mostly Cs Like Fozzie Bear, you believe life is for laughing. And you’re determined to spread that belief around, whether people find your jokes funny or not. But even if they don’t like your puns and pranks, they won’t be able to resist your endless optimism. Just as Fozzie will try his hand at anything – be it ventriloquism, roller-skating or magic – you’re always keen to learn new skills, too.
Mostly Ds Like Miss Piggy, you know you look good, have bags of talent – and only the best is good enough for you. What harm can it do to tell people all that? It just gives them more reason to love you! You’ll do anything to be the centre of attention and when you set your heart on something, you won’t take no for an answer…
Mostly Es You are Kermit. Generally calm and centred, you’re the person everyone turns to in a crisis. You can get angry if people take you for granted and occasionally panic when the chaos you’re dealing with threatens to overwhelm even your considerable powers. But you have a big heart and will never want for friends.
Mostly Fs Statler and Waldorf might very well ask you to join them in the balcony – if they could be bothered to make a new friend, that is. Don’t hold your breath. OK, so occasionally you’re grumpy and a bit over-critical: so what? It’s important to tell the truth sometimes, right? And even if no one else gets the joke, at least you find yourself funny…
