Feeling Good About Your Flirting Style? This Depressing Quiz Will Change Thatby Chiara Atik on December 20, 2010
I never really thought I was bad at flirting, but then I took a University Of Kansas quiz about it, and it turns out, I’m REALLY BAD at it!
University of Kansas-Lawrence researchers found that there are five styles of flirting: physical, traditional, polite, sincere, and playful. A quick 36 question quiz will determine how you rate in each style.
The questions are fairly straightforward: You’re asked to rate how strongly you agree or disagree on various statements, such as “Flirting with others will make me feel attractive” and “When dating, people should always be polite and use proper manners.”
I for one was pretty confident about my flirting skills, until I got to the results page.
“You are not very comfortable and competent in expressing your sexual interest to potential partners. You are not very capable of figuring out that potential partners are interested in you, and not very effective at conveying romantic interest to potential partners. In your last serious relationship, it was not very likely that you:
Felt attracted right away.
Were successful when you flirted using your body language.”
My friend, on the other hand, got a different result:
“You tend to be not at all choosey about who you flirt with, and it is very unlikely that you took a long time to get to know someone before you knew you were romantically interested in them. You are very unlikely to seek out important and meaningful romantic relationships.”
THANKS, FLIRTING QUIZ.
