Your Answers

Mostly A’s: You are a quirky witch.

For you, magic is the essence of fun. You love using your imagination to see what tricks you can dream of next. While you do use magic to help others occasionally, your focus is not altruism, but simply enjoying the beauty of your powers.

Mostly B’s: You are a wicked witch.

Being a witch is all about power for you. You love the thrill of manipulating the world to best to your will. You are extremely driven and willing to put in the time and practice to become one of the world’s strongest witches.

Check out The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L Frank Baum.

Mostly C’s: You are a passionate witch.

You love the feeling of magic and couldn’t be happier to be a witch. You view holding such power as a privilege and try to use it for good, though sometimes your passion carries you away from considering ethics to merely considering what is possible. You don’t mind working hard to become a better witch.

Mostly D’s: You are a conflicted witch.

You are not sure about your powers, whether you want them and how they should be used. You worry that magic can be abused or that people will misinterpret your intentions. Still, you know the only way to make up your mind is to study hard and learn all about magic as you can. When you stop running from your magic, you will become a most well-informed and academic witch.

    Hilariously, c’s won out over b’s by only one. Alternately, I only had one “d” – the icecream question, but looking at the lineup, I think I probably would be a D witch. ^_^


  2. Michael J. Miller says:

    What does it mean if I got three As, thee Cs, three Ds, and one B? Because my guess is perhaps I’m a witch with commitment issues :/.

    Anyway, this was a lot of fun! Also, the fact that you wrote, “This quiz is just for fun, and Pages Unbound makes no claim to know much about your personality at all” weirdly makes me take this more seriously than other online quizzes. The honesty makes it more legit!
