NORMAL people stuff official-looking envelopes out of sight, but some freaks immediately face the contents of their post. Take our quiz to find out which you are.
When you come down in the morning and see post on the mat do you:
A) Pretend you haven’t seen it and hum loudly to block out the paranoid voices in your head saying you’re one envelope away from crippling debt, terminal illness or some other form of doom.
B) Calmly pick up your correspondence before opening them all to feel fully informed. Knowledge is power!
Are you someone who keeps tabs on their outgoings and debts?
A) You’d prefer not to answer this question because a mild sweat is already breaking out.
B) Yes, because sound financial planning is the key to a calm, content and prosperous life.
When an envelope with a plastic window that is definitely not a fiver from your gran arrives, do you:
A) Recoil in horror and chuck it in the recycling. You can’t get in trouble if no one can prove you ever received the post, right?
B) Read it in detail before getting out your holepunch and filing it for future reference.
Are you on top of things?
A) Does buying more Weetabix before the box runs out count? If so, some of the time.
B) Yes, your personal finances are planned and monitored like a military operation. Life is to be lived, but primarily it is to be organised.
Do you like surprises?
A) Obviously not. Surprises are scary and never good. Especially when the letter informing you says ‘DO NOT IGNORE’.
B) Of course – life is an adventure and who knows what wonderful things might await you in today’s post? There could be a deal on your car insurance – or a free biro!
Mostly As: You are normal and leading a life of fear, denial and futilely delaying bad news until a more appropriate time, ie. never.
Mostly Bs: There is something very wrong with you. You either do not fear bad news or, even weirder, you feel capable of dealing with it. If this desire to discover the troubling truth is not a result of head trauma, you are probably a robot.
