Personality quizzes are my favorite.

I've taken all kinds of personality tests to try to learn more about myself. Being afraid to enter an ice cave in one quiz told me a lot about my love life. The galloping horse I picked in another quiz gave me some great advice on dealing with feeling locked in. It is so easy to learn a lot about yourself based on the choices you make in these quizzes.

Since I know that these unique tests can be fun and extremely revealing, when I saw this one about the type of socks I wear, I had to give it a try. Who knew that my choice of argyle socks could be so accurate? My results were so spot on, it's shocking!

The eight different sock choices are so distinct and specific that I ended up reading all of them to see what they all meant. Each sock type was chosen specifically to attract one of eight different personality types.

Let us know in the comments if your results were as accurate as mine!

Pick Which Type Of Sock You Would Most Want To Wear. Once You Have Your Choice, Keep Scrolling To See What It Means!

1. Plain Socks

You picked the plain socks!

Choosing the plain socks does not mean you are plain by any means. In fact, you are anything but. You are simply no-nonsense. You are a person who knows how to get things done. This makes you a natural born leader who can inspire others. People look to you to set an example and you are very good at taking on that responsibility. As a result, you have a great head for business and are poised to move up in the world very quickly.

Be careful not to let your no-nonsense attitude get too carried away. Now might be the perfect time to let a little fun into your life. Don't be afraid to get a little messy. Letting yourself go a bit won't prevent you from being the all-star that you know you are.

2. Striped Socks

You picked the striped socks!

Being drawn to the orderly nature of the stripes shows that you like things that are reliable and dependable. As a result, you have become an extremely reliable person yourself. Your friends and family know that they can always count on you to be there for them. You are extremely trustworthy and a very good listener. This means that people probably come to you for advice or to confide in you. You probably know your fair share of your friends' secrets, which you absolutely plan on keeping.

Your trustworthy nature means that people put a lot of pressure on you to be a good friend. Just make sure that you are receiving that same friendship in return. Being a good communicator means sharing just as much as listening, so now would be the perfect time to strengthen your friendships by opening up even more than usual.

3. Polka-Dotted Socks

You picked the polka-dotted socks!

As a polka dot lover, you like to have fun, but you prefer it on the tamer side. You are much more shy and reserved than the rest of your friends and co-workers. Rather than receive attention from others, you much prefer to sit quietly in the corner and observe. Your shy nature doesn't make you a boring person though. You just don't feel the need to scream from the rooftops like some other people you know.

Coming out of your shell a bit is always sound advice and especially for someone like you. If you are normally too reserved to tell a funny joke or story at a party, prepare one in advance and practice it. You may just surprise everyone with the intelligence and humor that you have been keeping inside.

4. Argyle Socks

You picked the argyle socks!

You are the wild and adventurous one. You really enjoy the thrill involved with taking risks. You will be the first person to suggest trying a new type of food or exploring some new part of the world. You would much rather jump out of a plane with a parachute than go out to a bar with your friends. You like to go out on a ledge and your friends love this about you.

While some may try to tame you, keep on being yourself. It takes serious guts to approach the world with such an adventurous spirit as you do. When it comes to work, try to infuse your projects with the same kind of risk taking. Maybe now is a good time to make a leap and write that book you've always wanted to write or open that business you've been dreaming about.

5. Zigzag Striped Socks

You picked zigzag striped socks!

Okay, so maybe you are a little bit different than your friends. But who cares? You are quirky and creative and you like to think outside the box. Your friends may give you flak for being a little messy or disorganized, but that's just because they don't understand your fast-moving, imaginative mind.

Because you march to the beat of your own drum, you may be inclined to avoid others altogether. This would be a mistake. The world needs more people like you and there is no need to apologize for being your unique self. Besides, once people get to know you, they will fall in love with your amazing creativity and charm.

6. Heart Socks

You picked heart socks!

Aww, you are a romantic at "heart" -- no pun intended. You have a fun and flirty nature. You believe strongly in loving relationships, whether with your friends or your partner. You are a devoted friend and you are constantly looking for even more love to keep you feeling warm and fuzzy inside. Your idea of the perfect date involves snuggling on the couch while watching a sappy romantic comedy.

Be careful not to be disappointed in those around you if they don't share your sense of whimsy and romance. Your openness is your strongest attribute and your friends and family love you for having such a big heart. Continue to stay open hearted and you will go very far in life.

7. Flower Socks

You picked flower socks!

You are the optimist to beat all optimists. Your sunny disposition and positive outlook keep you bubbly and warm at all times. The glass is always half full with you and people look to you to share some of that positive energy. Your joyful approach to life can be an inspiration to co-workers who may be more inclined to complain about things.

Now we all know that nobody is happy all the time. So rather than giving your positivity to the world and bottling up any negative energy, find a friend you can talk to about things that bother you. Letting yourself open up and be honest won't compromise your warm nature. In fact, it will help you to feel happy about life even more of the time.

8. Multi-Colored Socks

You picked multi-colored socks!

Don't worry, we can hear you. You are loud, proud, and not afraid to make your voice heard. You are a natural born performer and if you aren't onstage, you make the world your stage. At any party, people flock to you to hear hilarious, well-told stories. You soak up the attention in the best way possible. Your theatrical nature fuels you and makes you the kind of person people want to meet.

Make sure that you don't talk so loudly that others can't be heard. Make time for one-on-one interactions with your friends and be sure that you spend as much time listening as talking. While performing may come naturally to you, your friends may need a little more coaxing. Be generous with them and your relationships may just end up being stronger than ever.
