Are you an overachiever?

Using everything we learned about overachievers from overachievers, we’ve created a quiz to tell you what kind of overachiever you are. Over 500 people have taken the quiz so far …

Which kind of overachiever are you? A Perfectionist? Or more of an Omnivore? Take our quiz to find out. If your test results show you (or someone you love) is an overachiever, we'd like to hear your stories and include them in our fictional web video series.

I get the most delight from:

Making a tangible, measurable difference.
Winning an award, getting a gold star.
Empowering others to be their best, helping in the background.
Getting everything done right.
Losing myself completely in one thing I'm good at.
Trying something that I've never done before.
Relaxing, going to a movie, looking at some art, lying by a lake.

Correct!

Wrong!

I'm kept awake at night by:
Wondering if I made a mistake or forgot something.
Actually, I sleep pretty well.
Assessing the competition.
Trying to choose between all the things I want to do.
Worrying I'm failing my community.
Practicing something in my head.
Worrying about the overachiever in my life.

Correct!

Wrong!

I succeed:
When I can redefine the problem or invent something entirely new.
By putting in the time to really understand the problem and all possible solutions.
At eating, sleeping, enjoying life.
At rallying the team, going forth bravely.
As part of a team.
By doing it better than others.
Kind of naturally, without really trying.

Correct!

Wrong!

The kind of praise I most often hear is:
You're the best.
You're really making a difference.
We all count on you.
You're so talented.
You sure know how to have a good time.
Oh, hey, I forgot you were there, but thanks!
Wow, how do you do all of that in one day?

Correct!

Wrong!

The kind of criticism I most often hear is:
Could you maybe pick up your socks?
We miss you, you're always busy.
You're kind of a show-off.
You're so quiet.
Uhm, you're making everyone else feel bad.
Relax, the world isn't ending right this second.
You have impossible standards.

Correct!

Wrong!

My secret confession:
Sometimes I think overachievers are just really really neurotic, and I fantasize about what would happen if everybody stopped paying so much attention to them.
I actually prefer the company of my work to the company of other people.
I'm pretty sure everything would fall apart without me.
I'm often just looking at the Internet when I should be working.
Sitting still makes me a little crazy. (OK, a lot crazy.)
I secretly want to punch lazy or incompetent people in the face.
If I get a lower score on something than someone I know I'm better than, I'll obsess over how mistaken the results are.

Correct!

Wrong!
