So, apparently I am “Karen Blixen” from the book Out of Africa by Isak Dinesen– a strong woman with an adventurous nature. I can hold my own and am not afraid to speak my mind. I haven’t read this book, so I’m not sure how to take this. I’ll have to put it on my to-read list!

Oh, and just for fun, I answered the same but changed my gender to male, and that would make me: “Dirk Pitt” from the well-known Clive Cussler novels – bold, confident and witty. I love to face new challenges and discover new things. And I have actually read this book! I don’t agree with it at all, because I’m not that adventurous. But I’ll take the compliment.

What results did you get? Please let me know in the comments if you agree with it or not!

Happy quizzing,

Loes M.
