How British am I?

I thought I'd take a test to find out...



You Are 65% British


Congrats, mate. You're are probably British.

(If not, definitely Australian. Or Kiwi. Or Canadian.)

You enjoy most aspects of mainstream British culture, without being stereotypical about it.

You also have a typical British temperament. You wouldn't dream of being impolite.

Lol, that was fun my result :

You Are 40% British
You're about as British as a half hearted Anglophile... in other words, a piss poor Brit.
If you are indeed from Britain, you probably consider yourself a European more than anything else.

If you're trying to pass for a Brit, you're going to have to try a little harder.
Go to a football match. Drink until you puke. And head in to work the next morning totally hungover.

That's quite true, I don't drink, i don't work (anymore) and I hate football !

BTW the German efficiency is gone long ago. I think that was before WW 2 ! Germans today are unpunctual, messy, and some households are quite dirty too. Only companies are still efficient, that's what I think living 50 years in Belgium and see it from outside !

Hi Tinsie!
I thought I wasn't British at all, but still there were 45% coming up; it must be an average for any «decent» foreigner driving a German car... ;))

Blogtrotter is back to the «urban jungle», which Reykjavik is far from being... ;)). Enjoy and have a fabulous week!

80%
Are you British? Hell, you're more of a Brit than the Queen is!
You're truly the dog's bollocks... and you know that's not an insult.

So what if you're a slobbering drunk obsessed with football?
At least you always remember your manners.

I'd probably score even higher if I had a car.

@ Gattina: 40% isn't bad - for a foreigner haha!

Oh no! If even the Germans are inefficient these days, what is the world coming to?!!

@ GMG: Yep, 45% is good. You wouldn't really want to be any more British, coming from the Med!

@ Loops: Haha that result is spot on, you'd score even higher for sure if you had a car :-)

Kate said...

Only 35%. I also completed the How American are you? And the result was: Are u sure you aren't Canadian? ;-)HA HA HA. Can't hide, eh?

Pamsie said...

Apparently I am 70% British. Not sure what to make of that... ;-)

Per Stromsjo said...

I got the same diagnosis as Gattina but in my case it was merely 35%.

That was fun! :)

I'm 60% British. I'm not sure what to make of that as my ancestors were Irish! And I was born in NZ but now live in Australia. Good fun, Tinsie. Thanks.

Tinsie said...

@ Kate: Hahaha you're so busted!!

@ Pamsie: I've always suspected you were more British than me, although not quite as British as Loops. This test is rather good :-p

@ Per Stromsjo: 35% is pretty good for a foreign national, you wouldn't really want it much higher than that.

@ Puss-in-Boots: Well, as the Irish are the closest nation to the Brits, it makes sense that they share some common traits ;-)

this describes me perfectly.

Tinsie said...

It even guessed your nationality - how cool is that? Hehe ;-)
