Scoring for questions:

    A: 5 points

B: 3 points

C: 2 points

D: 1 point

If you scored:

20-25 points: You are club royalty. You don’t go to the party, the party comes to you. Your personality is very outgoing, and you know that you only have one life to live. The music you like to hear is danceable, fresh, and always tearing up the hottest night spots around the world.

    Recommended Ringtone: “Disco Inferno” by 50 Cent, Rap ringtones, Dance ringtones

15-19 points:    You enjoy being out and about, but as a change of pace rather than as a standard. Dancing and being out with your friends is fun if the mood is right. While you can be a major extrovert, you first have to adjust to the surroundings. You like listening to music and have an eclectic collection, but you don’t always follow the latest trends.

    Recommended Ringtone: “U Don’t Have to Call” by Usher or other R&B ringtones

10-14 points:    Although you don’t hit the town often, it is a blast when you do. People see you as a quiet type, but those who really know you see a bit of a wild streak. You have a strong opinion and aren’t afraid to express what you think. While you listen to music frequently, you have a small list of favorites that you play again and again.

    Recommended Ringtone: “One Step Closer” by Linkin Park or Rock ringtones

5-9 points: You’re the type of person who does their own thing, is very opinionated, and has no fear of telling people what you think. You like being around people, but sometimes doing something solo is cool, too. The type of music you tend to listen to is a little under the radar to your friends, but you enjoy being on the cutting edge of what is out there.

    Recommended Ringtone: “Take It Away” by The Used or Alternative ringtones
