Some professions are naturally more glamorous than others. They're exciting to watch, unlike, say, computer programming (sorry, coders!), and they give viewers dopamine rushes. There are actors, comedians, musicians, and world-class athletes who, through sheer determination, exceptional talent, and good luck, catapult themselves to superstardom and global celebrity status. They become known and loved by fans who are moved by their performances or enchanted by their charisma. If you've ever seen a famous person do an interview, it might cross your mind that you have similar personalities. You like the same stuff, or you have overlapping pet peeves. The personal stories they tell resonate with you, and you feel a kinship. This quiz will pluck an A-lister to confirm something you knew all along; that you have considerable star potential and may, in fact, be one in the multiverse.
Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
There have always been famous people, but fame was restricted to various regions in the old days. Greek Olympic athletes had a fair amount of clout, as did Roman gladiators and actors. Before the advent of modern mass media, songs, plays, and art featured well-known people. Fast forward a few centuries, and European cities like London and Paris became home to the Romantic movement. Reputation was currency, and publicity increased the money writers, intellectuals, and artists could earn. The Romantics made Shakespeare more popular posthumously too. Consider, also, the show Bridgerton. Gossip columns were the tabloids of the time, and they generated a ton of intrigue and traded in scandal. By the 19th century, bars and restaurants put up celebrity portraits and photographs of local stage actors.
It was only in the 20th century when movies and television started to rule the world that global stardom was well and truly entrenched. Cut to today. In the age of social media influencers, more people from a broader range of professions can become wealthy and famous than ever before.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
