What Buzzfeed Quizzes Say About You As a Parent

According to Buzzfeed, I should be living in Cape Town, working as a designer, and am truly a labrador at heart. Not to mention I’m channeling some serious Björk/Voldemort/George Costanza and eat like a 30-something. Those are just a few of the answers I got after completing those ridiculously popular personality quizzes.

If you are an avid user of Facebook, then you are very familiar with these since your pals have shared their results morning, noon and night. They share their enthusiasm (“I got Kim Deal!!!”) and their dismay, (“I’m an overwhelmed parent?!?!?”). Although these tests are far from scientific, people can’t help but take the results personally. So I couldn’t help but wonder … what kind of parent are you, based on the quizzes you take? Let’s find out!

dog

What Kind of Dog Are You?

You envy the life of a dog. They spend the day sleeping, playing, eating and being petted by people who adore them. Not a bad reality at all. We all have days when we wish we were a dog, you just may have those days more than the average person.

Which Punk Icon Are You?

You may have a couple of tattoos, you have seen the Ramones play live and you once dyed your hair pink, but these days you go au natural and play “Let It Go” way more than “Blitzkreig Bop.”

city

What City Should You Actually Live In?

You took the quiz over and over and yet the results never come up Paris. But regardless of what city you end up with, you dream of living somewhere else than where your family is living now.

What ‘90s Alt-Rock Grrrl Are You?

Even though you are now immersed in car pools, pot lucks and loads upon loads of laundry, you can’t let go of your youth. That alt-rock grrrl is still there, somewhere, under the surface. And to prove that these tests are not science, Shirley Manson of Garbage took the quiz and didn’t get herself!

food

Do You Eat Your Age?

You either feel guilty that you served your kids mac and cheese AGAIN last night or are feeling proud of yourself for your organic kale salad that the kids loved. You would take this test to confirm what you already know about your eating habits.

seinfeld

Which Seinfeld Character Are You?

First, you are old enough to have watched Seinfeld when it was originally on. It started airing 22 years ago. Yes, 22 years ago. So that first off makes you an older parent (let’s do the math, if you were twenty when you started watching it in 1989, you’d be 42 today). This also means that you have total nostalgia for a show where there were no kids at all, well, except for the episode with the ugly baby. You miss those care-free days of yore.

harry-potter

What Harry Potter Character Are You?

You read the books before you had kids thinking, “someday I will read these to my offspring and it will be awesome.” That day has come and you are now reading the series to your children holding them when they get scared and dreaming of sipping Butterbeer.

parent

What Kind of Parent Are You?

Well, you’re a parent and if you are like most of us, you are totally winging it. Having someone define your parenting style in just a couple words can be a fun distraction, for like a second. Then you have to go fill the sippy cup, change that diaper and pick up the kids from school. Wait, how do we have time for all the quizzes anyways?
