Mostly A: Mr/Miss Responsible
You're the sensible one. You'll look after everyone and everything from doing the tidying, the bills or providing the after-night snacks. You will be appreciated for it - even if it's not always obvious.
Mostly B: Out-All-Night
The rebel teenager. You're always up for a good time - great when it comes to those celebratory nights out, but you have to be told when to tone it down sometimes.
Mostly C: The Lazy One
As the child of the house, you'll wait for things to get done, even if you see them getting out of hand. You're the person people go to, to relax with after a stressful day as they're guaranteed to be cheered up.
Mostly D: Sensible Studier
You're at uni for one thing, which means studying comes before almost everything. If something's going wrong in the house you'll probably find it easier to leave it than sort it. Off to the library you go!
Despite what they say, opposites don't always attract. There will be times when you have to be respectful and maybe even do something uncharacteristic once in a while...
