If you’ve ever taken one of those random quizzes floating around on the web, you’ve probably found out the answers to profound questions you might have about your life and general existence. Questions like what kind of ice cream flavour you’d be in a past life or what is your inner potato (these are actual quizzes, no really). We decided to create a quiz just like that, titled ‘what kind of app are you?’ so you too could be subject to clickbait thinly masquerading as an article. Our chief editor didn’t take too kindly to this approach and thus, this ‘article’ was struck off the list.
The End? Not quite. We are not ones to give up so easily so took the liberty of putting a new spin to it, putting ourselves in the shoes of famous peeps and took the quiz on their behalf. Here are the illustrated results.
