If weather forecasts were people, which one would you be? Is your disposition unapologetically Sunny? Or as dark and brooding as Cloudy with Thunderstorms? Take our fun quiz to find out!
Weather forecasts come in all sorts of packages, depending on atmospheric factors such as winds, clouds, and rains. We may not like all of them but each plays its role in maintaining the world’s delicate balance. Too much of a good thing, such as sunny days, may bring about droughts; while flood-causing typhoons actually increases our water supply and clears the atmosphere of pollutants.

Mostly As: Sunny
You face every situation with relentless optimism. You see life as a stretch of clear skies—a blue canvas you can dot with rainbows and cotton-candy clouds. A word of caution though: not everyone will gravitate toward your all-out vigor; some may be even turned off. If this is an issue with you, try to ease up on the energy with people you’ve just met. If you think they can handle it, then by all means, let your perky personality shine through!
Mostly Bs: Cloudy with Rainshowers and Thunderstorms
You often like to go solo, dealing with problems on your own. Though it’s good to spend some alone time, too much of it can alienate you from the others. Try to reach out once in a while and you’ll be surprised how much you can learn from interacting with others.
Mostly Cs: Sunny/Cloudy with Rainshowers and Thunderstorms
No one’s perfect and that’s okay. You enjoy celebrating your triumphs and learning from your mistakes. For you, life is all about balance and being comfortable in your own skin. It’s not easy to constantly adjust but you’ve learned that it’s the best way to live life to the fullest.
Mostly Ds: Stormy
You like shaking things up and being the center of attention. You’re anxious in squeezing the most out of every day, trying one adrenaline-pumping adventure after the other. A piece of unsolicited advice: try to relax once in a while. Not all great things can be achieved in a hurry. Remember that there is also wisdom and beauty in the quiet things.
