A new personality test is going around Twitter this week: The game is to “describe yourself in three fictional characters.” Which combination of made-up personality traits speaks to who you really are? Now is the time to consider the question deeply and tweet about it.
The responses so far range from apparently sincere—
—to probably still sincere but also very clever—
—to the characters from your own good video game that you wrote.
Some people are Mirandas/Ilanas (this is definitely a thing):
While many, many others are Squidward, Squidward, and just Squidward. Highly relatable.
This is one of those memes that falls into the category of “games people used to play on LiveJournal 15 years ago.” Certainly it’s fun to think about the relationship between yourself and the media you like: What’s appealing about certain characters? What aspects of yourself do you see in them?
But it’s 2016 now, so people also love to be self-deprecating, jokeful irony boys.
This, by the way, is cheating. Yakko, Wakko, and Dot are like the id, ego, and superego of cartoon characters:
So, who are your three?
