Toronto Wrist-Slaps Quiz-Whoring Narcissists


One of my favourite things to do during down-time is take personality quizzes that aggrandize me in some show-offable way. What movie are you? Which Sex and the City Character are You Most Like? Rate Your Dating Style!

And given how many MySpace bulletins composed of Q & A's with self-excusing titles like "soooo b0red!" or "stolen from sheila" I get in a day, it's clear I'm not alone in this inclination.

Which is why this quiz on was so exciting: "What's Toronto's Take on You?" It was like, oh snap, I never realized my city would have an opinion about where I belong in its gleaming array of subcultures and whatnot.

So I take the quiz, even though I've only been to Toronto once, and get the following message: "You're passionate about where you live." Okay, I don't live in Toronto, but if I did, hell yes! that would be true. After buttering me up thus, it goes on to say, "Almost 30% of people living in Toronto's neighbourhoods remain below the poverty line."

Then get this: it asks me to give a damn. Given that it totally caught me in "mirror, mirror" mode, I might just donate some shekels to assuage my guilt.

Both sites by Brand Infiltration for United Way Toronto. Props out to CD @paiiige, who baited us with it on Twitter.
