If you answered mainly a, you're PC to the core.

Scared to offend, you do what you believe society wants you to do, sometimes without even knowing why. I advise you steer clear of boats, in case they get rocked - or, at the very least, wear an approved, ethically-made life-jacket, sourced from renewable materials.

If you answered mostly b, you're OTT ... bordering on insane. Time to head down the rabbit hole and join the Mad Hatter's tea party. This message was brought to you by a gender fluid leprechaun.

For those who answered mainly c, I'm picking you don't have hair growing on your palms, hear voices or display any other signs of madness.

You are among the ever-dwindling numbers of those who can demonstrate some semblance of sanity, opting to live in the real world as opposed to the alternate realities that now house far too many.
