You Should Get a Cat {or Why I Shouldn’t Be a Mother}

I‘ll admit it. I’m a sucker for online quizzes. “Which Disney Princess Are You?” — “What City Should You Live In?” — “Which Hogwarts House Would the Sorting Hat Put You In?”

I don’t know what it is about them. Maybe I’m just egocentric and I like answering questions about myself? I hope not. Actually, I think it has more to do with me testing the test. I like to see what kinds of questions they’ll ask. Will they be obvious to the point where I can skew the result simply by plugging in the answer I know the test writer was looking for? Will they just be silly? Or will they be probing enough that the results are, in fact, scarily accurate?

So, the other day, I took this quiz: “How Many Children Should You Have?”

My friend posted it on Facebook. It told her she should have 11 children. I couldn’t resist. So far, she’s only on her second kid. I’ve got four! I figure if she got 11, I should wind up with 22, right? Wrong.

This is the result I got. And I quote.

You should get a cat. Trust us, you should not reproduce.

Well, shucks. (And sorry, quiz writers, but too late x 4!!! Booyah.) (more…)
