You definitely think of yourself as someone who has a dark side. And part of having that dark side means not showing it.
Your inner child is stubborn and a bit bossy.
You truly fear the dark side of humanity. You are a true misanthrope.
You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.
You are a traditionalist with most aspects of your life. You like your Halloween costume to be basic, well made, and conventional enough to wear another year.
I doubt it's because I prefer chocolate to gummy worms, but some of this is right on (I'm friendly with a dark side and a stubborn, bossy inner child, like to be scared, somewhat traditionalist). Of course some of it is also crap (I'm neither prone to overdrama nor a true misanthrope, though maybe kind of a curmudgeon). And how a person can be both friendly and truly misanthropic escapes me. Well. It's a silly quiz. Enjoy, and report back.
What do you do for Halloween? U.K. readers, has Halloween spread across the pond?
As a serious kind of kid, it was never my favorite holiday. I never really liked any sort of dress-up, and going to school in costume made me anxious. I don't even know if schools still do that, but I won't be sad if they don't.
As a parent it is a total hoot to see the kids enjoying it. We have good friends up the street, and team up to do dinner and trick-or-treat stuff together, and it's truly fun.
For some of the 1990s, I had a looooong highway commute to work from Amherst, MA to Brattleboro VT. Was I insane? Let's just say home life wasn't great, work life wasn't great, so those hours in the car may have been the healthiest part of the day. Anyhoo, I used to catch this dude's kooky radio talk show for sheer entertainment on the way home. This time of year it was always highly amusing to listen to his demented rants about how celebrating Halloween is opening ourselves to forces of evil, demonic possession, Satanic influence, &c. I kid you not. If you need an exorcism or know someone who does, check him out. You could get on TV!
