Cranky doesn’t even begin to cover it. Most people find your sour attitude and general disposition off-putting, and they’d be right. Until they’re endeared to you (if they ever are), those around you might take offense to your complaining. But fear not, because you don’t really want them around anyway, unless they keep themselves useful enough to tolerate. You’ve got a big, smart brain, strong opinions, and a true moral code to boot.

You, Ol’ Scrooge, are in good company with sitcom characters such as Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Sister Michael (Derry Girls), Judge Alan (Jury Duty), Jen (Extraordinary), and Colin Robinson (WWDITS).

Wild Card (13-20 points)

Some might consider you dangerous, in light of the antics you get into with your crew, but it’s all in good fun. If your friends are willing to keep an open mind, they might learn how to live their lives in a more carefree way. Rules are merely suggestions in your book, which makes your next move all that much more exciting and unpredictable. 

You can be found getting into hijinks with the likes of Richard Lewis (Curb Your Enthusiasm), Michelle (Derry Girls), Jeannie (Jury Duty), Kash (Extraordinary), and Laszlo (WWDITS).

Quirk (21-28 points)

Sitcom personality test - Nadja

Oooh, quirky-girl alert! Your friends love you for your air of youthful innocence; you bring a childlike wonder to the group, infusing curiosity and a fresh perspective into the boring and the mundane. You are full of ideas and eager to execute on them. Though your adventures may not turn out as planned, you and your friends are better for having tried. Keep your head in the clouds, you dear, sweet, silly goose, and never let anyone dim your light; we need more people like you in this world.

Orla from Derry Girls, Todd from Jury Duty, Jizzlord from Extraordinary, Leon Black from Curb Your Enthusiasm, and Nadja from WWDITS comprise your kooky sitcom crew.

Cupcake (29-36 points)

If there’s a problem, you’ll have the answer. Your friends rely on you for not only your joy and optimism, but also for your unbridled competence: you know how to get shit done. You’re loving and lovable—even though you may go over the top sometimes, your heart is always in the right place. 

Your bunch is filled with the following sitcom baby angels: Ronald from Jury Duty, Clare from Derry Girls, Guillermo from WWDITS, Carrie from Extraordinary, and Cheryl from Curb Your Enthusiasm.
