Mostly As - your personality type is Mundane, Ordinary, Fine, Ok (MOFO)
Congratulations! You are exactly the same personality type as the other 69% of the population who chose mostly A's. There's nothing wrong with being a MOFO - except that it makes you a little bit predictable. (Tee hee, '69%'.) On the upside, people generally get on with you because they know what to expect.
Advice for MOFOs: No-one's ended limericks like that since Edward Lear; stop telling other people about your boring dreams.
Mostly B's - your personality type is Emotional, Melancholy, Overindulged. (EMO)
I bet you're not surprised, are you. Your acronym even has one fewer letter than everyone else's - how typical. Personality tests always say you're an EMO. Like this one was going to be any different. At least you're interesting, unlike all those MOFOs.
Advice for EMOs: Stop writing poems late at night; stay out of the military.
Mostly C's - your personality type is Cheerful, Optimistic, Caring, Kind (COCK)
You are a genuinely happy person!! This really annoys everyone around you. However, you're not going to believe that last sentence, and will continue to spread your own special brand of joy everywhere you go until you are stabbed in the eye with a fork. The upside? Your plan for the last 6 hours of existence is better than everyone else's.
Advice for COCKs: Surround yourself with other COCKs to create a sausagefest of joy!
Mostly D's - your personality type is Narcissistic, Unwise, Troubled, Rebel (NUTR)
Congratulations! You are a certified NUTR. Most NUTR's are employed in the public service industry, unemployed and talking to themselves on the bus, or incarcerated. I am giving you these statistics about professions because, quite frankly, I don't want to touch your psychological issues with a ten-foot pole.
Advice for NUTR's: Robots are not actually everywhere; you should perhaps consider becoming a writer (bonus: it is a career you can continue while in the Big House.)
Mostly E's - your personality type is Dreamer, Intellectual, Clever, Kooky (DICK).
Wow. You're a total DICK. You're no doubt putting your liberal arts degree to good use by rejecting it as a useless societal construct, then tearing off a corner of it to roll a joint because you can't buy any papers until your grant gets approved (or your benefit comes through).
Advice for DICKs: The inner workings of your brain are not actually that fascinating; everyone knows that the protagonist of your unpublished novel is actually you.
I'm an EMO DICK! What are you?
