11 Personality Quizzes To Do With Friends That Will Tell You All You Need To Know About Each Other
You and your core crew of best friends might have a lot in common (which bonds you into besties) but your personalities might be very different. Which, in another way, is what makes you the best friends forever that you are. It might be obvious who is who in the group, but there are personality quizzes to do with friends that will make for a fun night in with the crew. You — like me — can confirm or own up to the fact that you really are the neurotic mom of the group.
In movies and television and around your lunch table it's apparent that every friend group has a unique cast of characters. It's always a mix of extroverts, introverts, bohemians and neurotics all with something to teach the other. Whether it's to let your hair down or that there's a safe space to feel comforted and loved. HBO's beloved Sex and the City followed four women as they navigated relationships in their own, unique way. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants illustrated the one-size-fits-all connection between four friends all off doing their own things during the summer months. Though friends are different, we all work well together.
All your friends are unique. And yet it's sometimes these differences that make you all fit together. Grab the cheese doodles from the pantry and gather around the computer to throw it back to the grand slumber parties of the '90s. These personality quizzes are quick and a fun way to giggle over each other's key character traits. It's just like getting together to play Dream Phone, but all grown up. And with the purpose to get to know each other a little better.
