[question title="You’re ready to hand your CV in to your fave clothes shop to ask for a part-time job, but notice the popular girl from your grade is already working there. You . . ."]

[c weight="2"]walk in, say “Hi” to her and hand in your CV with a smile – she’s not poisonous![/c]

[question title="You’re playing truth or dare at a sleepover with your friends. Which truth or dare would you normally choose?"]

[a weight="0"]Truth, but if it’s one you didn’t want to answer you’d probably end up pouting.[/a]

[b weight="1"]A dare, but you’d hassle your mates to downgrade it if it were too scary.[/b]

[c weight="2"]A dare to run up the street and back – stark naked![/c]


[question title="You’re home alone on a Saturday night, watching a scary movie. You think you hear a noise somewhere in your house. You. . ."]

[question title="You’re at the hairdressers and your stylist suggests doing something new with your look. You . . ."]

[b weight="1"]ask her exactly what she’s thinking of doing and then tell her what she can and can’t do.[/b]

[c weight="2"]tell her to go for it! It’s about time you got a new, radical look.[/c]


[result max="4"]Scared Kitty

If fearlessness is a lion, then you’re surely a mouse! You avoid confrontation at all costs, even if it means you have to sit alone at lunch and rather than stand up to backstabbers, you start to believe what they’re saying about you is true. It’s time to start respecting yourself the way you deserve. Don’t be afraid to put your opinion across even if it’s different to others’ – they’ll respect you more for having one.[/result]

[result max="10"]Holding Back

While you’re not a scaredy-cat, you need a big push to try something outside your comfort zone. You tend to let opportunities pass you by – such as a chance to chat with your crush, or a cool job – because you’re worried you’ll look silly in front of others. It’s time to stop analysing everything and start doing the things you want. Take calculated risks and don’t assume people think the worst of you.[/result]

[result max="16"]The Lioness

Fearless is your middle name. You never let your nerves or insecurities get in the way of talking to a cute guy or taking up a new challenge. Your friends admire your confidence and you’re the go-to girl for a friend in need. You’re not afraid to speak your mind, even if it goes against what everyone else thinks. Just make sure you encourage people to speak up on their own – you can’t always be the brave one in confrontations.[/result]
