FEEL LIKE A MISFIT?
Wanna focus on fitness? Are you a fast-paced thrill seeker or a cool competitor? What types of activities do you like to do? Take this six-point quiz to find out what activities fit your personality to a "T".
The coolest physical activities are ones that I can do with my friends, or that give me a way to meet new people.
I get pumped up for physical activity because it makes me feel better and helps me stay in shape.
The kind of activities I like are risky and exciting. I like to move like lightning or change directions quickly.
What a move! I like to do physical activities that look incredible when others do them. I appreciate their moves and want to do them too.
For me, physical activities are major stress relievers. I can take a break from my problems not only by doing the activities, but also by watching others do them.
No pain, no gain! I like activities that are physically tough. Give me a long hard practice any day – even if I have to give up other things for it.
You love activities you can do with lots of friends and teammates – the more, the merrier!
Choosing healthy activities that help keep you in tip-top shape is very important to you.
You’re also a wanna be X Games competitor – the thrill and excitement of an activity only make it more appealing to you.
You like activities with style – your favorite activities to do are also ones that you love to watch others doing.
And stress? Nothing gets rid of the stress and tension in your life better than a big healthy dose of physical activity.
You love to work it! The more challenging a physical activity is, and the harder you have to work at it, the more you love it.
You prefer to be active with friends, but sometimes, doing activities with one bud is just as much fun as with a whole bunch.
Activities that keep you in shape are often at the top of your list, but sometimes you prefer to choose activities for other reasons.
Thrill and excitement? Sure, why not – but sometimes you like to keep your feet on the ground too.
Sometimes you choose activities because they look awesome when others do them, but sometimes, you just choose them because you like to do them yourself.
For you, physical activity helps somewhat in relieving the stress and tension in your life.
Working hard at a tough activity is fine for you, just so long as you can take a break from it once in a while.
You don’t mind keeping in shape while doing activities, but it’s not one of the reasons why you choose them.
Thrilling and risky activities aren’t really for you – you’d rather keep your lunch down and your feet on the ground.
It doesn’t really matter to you if your activities let you do sweet moves, you choose activities for other reasons.
As far as stress and tension go, you prefer to relieve them by doing things other than physical activity.
You mostly prefer activities that aren’t that physically demanding. After all, why break a sweat when you don’t have to?
Risky, thrilling activities – are you kidding? That doesn’t sound like fun to you! You’d much rather play it safe.
You like activities that have a function to them. It’s not at all important to you if you look cool doing them.
For you, there’s nothing about doing physical activities that you find relaxing or a relief for the stress and tension in your life.
