Mostly A’s: You epitomise being a drama queen. You crave drama and will go to any lengths to achieve it. This tendency of yours to go bonkers at the drop of a hat isn’t going to do you any good. Your friends probably dread you for your histrionics.
Mostly B’s: You’re neither a drama queen nor an ice queen. You know how to make your point by being assertive and yet not create a ruckus in front of people. Your approach to life is very reasonable.
Mostly C’s: You seem to be unaffected by what’s happening around you. You tend to bottle up your emotions and possibly can look like a doormat at times. You need to be assertive, without being too extreme.
