Last week, we asked you a bunch of questions to find out which time period you should have been born in. Count up your answers and get ready to travel through time to your true destiny! Behold the results of your Time Period Personality Quiz.
Mostly A’s: ANCIENT EGYPT
You should have been born in Ancient Egypt! Starting around 3000 BCE, you would have lived in the land of pharaohs and pyramids. You could float down the Nile River and carve your stories in hieroglyphics. When you’re feeling hungry, you could go fishing or snack on dates and honey. You might have rubbed shoulders with King Tut or Cleopatra. If you were wealthy, when you died, your body would be mummified. A good career for you might be an archaeologist or professor of Classical Studies!
Mostly B’S: MEDIEVAL TIMES
You should have been born in Medieval times. This time in history spanned from the 5th – 15th centuries CE across Europe. Some people call it the Middle Ages. It was a time of chaos, but also chivalry. Barbarians attacked; rulers were overthrown, and knights developed their code of honor. A system of feudalism developed where peasants farmed the land for the rich lords. You might wear your armor to a royal jousting tournament, and then relax with a fancy dinner of exotic pigeon or peacock, or more everyday fare like meat and potatoes. You’d eat with your hands, and then throw the scraps to the floor for the dogs. Yum!
Mostly C’s: RENAISSANCE
You should have been born during the Renaissance. During the 14th – 16th centuries, it was an amazing time for art and culture. You might have gone to church at an enormous European cathedral. You might have seen Michelangelo painting the roof of the Sistine Chapel, or Leonardo Da Vinci working on his famous “Mona Lisa” painting. Or you might have read sonnets while floating down the waterways of Venice. Perhaps you were even lucky enough to attend an opera, and then feast on a light dinner of pasta, fruit, and goat cheese. Perhaps one day you will make your way to Italy to see where it all began. Ciao!
Mostly D’s: AMERICAN COLONIAL TIMES
You should have been born during American colonial times. In July of 1776, the 13 American colonies declared independence from England. Obviously, England was not too happy with that, so the Revolutionary War began! You might have watched the founding fathers sign the Declaration of Independence or create the U.S. Constitution. You may have bumped into the first famous Americans like George Washington, or Benjamin Franklin, or Alexander Hamilton. Hopefully you don’t mind itchy white wigs though – that was the style!
Mostly E’s: FUTURISTIC
Your time is in the future! You would fit right in a futuristic society. Your day might consist of checking your iDevice for your schedule, and jumping into your flying spacecar for a day of fun or work. You and your BFF might zoom around the galaxy, or play laser tag jumping from building to building. When you get hungry, you could press a button from your automatic food machine and – presto – spaghetti and meatballs appear. So enjoy this time, and know your FUTURE is bright!
