What’s Your Architectural Personality?

What is your personality in terms of architecture? Take this quiz from HGTV to find out where you fall in the wide range of architectural styles.

I was hoping to be of the arts and crafts variety, but I took the quiz twice (you’ll see that some questions you can probably answer more than one way) and both times I received:

You’re solid as a Ranch house!

Simple and suburban by nature, you exude a cozy warmth that lets people know you don’t mind if they leave their shoes on in the house — it’s only carpet, after all! Family and friends are important to you, and you love having them stop by. While not overly fussy or vain, you care about your looks — but honestly, you’re happiest in sweatpants. To you, life isn’t measured in the goods you’ve acquired, but in time well spent.

Well, thinking about it, it’s not so bad and having grown up in a 1957 ranch house, what else am I supposed to know? And I do love having friends and family stop by; I was just hoping to escape suburbia! Not this time, I guess. Well, for anyone else who was hoping for a different style, this quiz only uses 18 styles and we know just how many there are beyond that 18. Take the quiz and share your results.

An edit: So, I found out there was a bonus question involving dog choices, but that didn’t come up every time for my quiz. Strange. But with the dog question (and the same answers that got me the ranch house) I ended up with Highbrow Greek Revival:

Greek Revival homes (also called Southern Colonial) are a mixture of many influences, including Roman and Greek (the columns) and French (the high windows). You’re a mix, too. You take the best from the world and make it all work together. Though sophisticated, you’re still up for a night of dancing on a sawdust floor. You love life. You have a welcoming temperament and can always find time to chat over snacks.

Hmm…I suppose a combination of all types is a good thing. Clearly, this quiz is way too entertaining. Keep playing!
