The Quizmaster Presents: The Horror Personality Test

Norman Bates (Anthony Perkins) in Dave Umbricht

Ten years ago or so I enlisted the help of a career counselor to determine what I should do with my life.  She provided personality tests and skills tests and enough multiple choice questions to give you a headache.

After many hours, hundred of questions, and perhaps, too many dollars, the coach gave me the answer.  In fact, she told me that she had never seen anyone score so highly in my determined category.

I was sure the answer I was about to receive would change the course of my life.  Then she told me.  The answer to what job I was most suited for:

Spiritual Leader

Uh, gee, thanks.  What the hell does that mean?

So now that you know what category I fit in, let’s put you all in a box.  Answer the following 20 questions to determine your “horror personality”.

Provide your answers in the comment section (and feel free to answer why you gave the answer).  I will post an answer key later this week so you can score yourselves at home.

And if you don’t play this game, rest assured, my murderous cult will hunt you down (we’re all horror, all the time in October here at ForgottenFlix).

Dave Umbricht Bio

About Dave Umbricht

Dave Umbricht is a self proclaimed "guy who knows a couple of things". However, he has never claimed to know them well. Genetically predisposed to love movies, at age ten he felt really cool being the only fourth grader who knew of the film "My Dinner with Andre", thanks to Siskel & Ebert. For the next twenty years he pretended to have seen the movie until he finally watched it at age 28 and understood what all the fuss was about. He attempted to watch all of the films on Ebert's Great Movies list by age 40. He failed.
