Oh? You were expecting a post today?

I was too busy answering a few questions, which led me to the answer I already knew. (Although if interrobang were a choice, I'd want to be that.)

You Are a Question Mark

You seek knowledge and insight in every form possible. You love learning. And while you know a lot, you don't act like a know it all. You're open to learning you're wrong. You ask a lot of questions, collect a lot of data, and always dig deep to find out more. You're naturally curious and inquisitive. You jump to ask a question when the opportunity arises. Your friends see you as interesting, insightful, and thought provoking. (But they're not always up for the intense inquisitions that you love!) You excel in: Higher education. You get along best with: The Comma

What Punctuation Mark Are You?

Also see the fun links over at Big A, little a about the demise of the semicolon. Root for your favorite punctuation mark!


  1. I think the poetry seven should all take the test and see how we stack up. No big surprise, but I am a colon (orderly, fact-driven). I wonder what our buddies are. Any guesses?

  2. Why, what an interesting question! :)

    For me, I could change one answer, and I'd be a comma. I don't think there's any way that I'd ever be a colon, although I deeply appreciate those who bring order into my world.

    Guesses: Liz: a comma or a question mark. Kelly: semicolon. Laura: colon, but perhaps a secret dash. Andi: comma. Tanita: semicolon.

    But who knows? There might be a closet exclamation mark among us...

  3. Is there another punctuation mark for someone who disagrees with what the test reveals?

    That's the one I want...

    (I think it might be parenthesis or ellipsis...)


  4. Thanks for pointing out this test. I'm a comma and we get along very well with question marks. Sounds right to me.

  5. MR, I would've pegged you for a comma---all those activities! Glad to know ya.

    Come on, Andi! Tell us what the test said! And did you hate my guess? Are you un-comma-like? I really was very, very unsure as to what to guess for you. You seem like you have hidden depths. As to being a ... or a () wouldn't that make you fade away? We wouldn't want that.

    And I just found out Tanita spilled the beans over at MR and she's a question mark too. D'oh! Missed that one. But I'm not surprised.

  6. OK Sara I'll be honest. The first time I took the test I was an exclamation point. I didn't think that could be true because it said "extrovert" and I definitely am NOT. I took it again and changed some answers and came out a question mark. Now I'm going to try again... two out of three!

    I say ellipsis because I am always quibbling...

    Maybe it's like a magic eight ball. I'll just keep shaking till I figure out what answer I WANT to find...

  7. Uh oh, I'm gonna have an identity crisis. It says I'm an exclamation point. But I'm so not!!!!!!!!! ;-)

  8. I was looking for umlaut,mostly because I love the sound of the word, but, as you might have guessed, I'm a comma.

  9. I'm a comma--strange, since I'm decidedly NOT optimistic!! :) Fun quiz.
