There are plenty of different types of carpets out there, and each is suited to a different purpose. But while people often consider their décor when selecting carpet, it’s also important to consider your personality — which kind of carpet reflects who you are? What kind of carpet are you?

Take the quiz, then add up your score at the end!

What Am I?

  • 5 Points: Nylon
    • You love being around people and are comfortable in crowds. While partying is one of your favorite things to do, you can be a bit prickly at times, so you have to take care not to step on anyone’s toes.
  • 6-10 Points: Olefin
    • You avoid direct sunlight, but you’re no shut-in — you love going for a peaceful stroll in the rain, or in otherwise-overcast weather. You were a bit of goth in high school, but as an adult you’re kind, caring, and compassionate to those you trust.
  • 11-15 Points: Polyester
    • You’ve got a different style for every day of the week, and you pride yourself on your versatility. You’re no precious diva — you’re ready to adapt to wide variety of circumstances, and you usually pull it off.
  • 16-20 Points: Acrylic
    • You make an effort to look great wherever you go, but in a casual way — you want others to think you just naturally look put-together when you get out of bed. You love being out in the sun and have a great tan.
  • 21-24 Points: Wool
    • You wear a tailored suit or dress wherever you go, and you look good — so good, in fact, that passersby are vulnerable to whiplash from trying so hard to get an eyeful. This is a regular occurrence, whether you’re taking a casual stroll near the campus of Wheaton College or if you’re a classy establishment in downtown Chicago. You love the attention, just as you love the finer things in life.
  • 25 Points: Shag
    • Gregarious and full of life, you always make a statement, but sometimes inadvertently repel others with your boisterous nature. There’s no doubt that those who spend time with you are your true friends, but you’re not for everyone.
