A Platonic solid, or a pseudo polyhedron?

Which Polyhedral Are You? I am a d4. Shrewd, petty and evil. Bwahahahaha [*evil laugh*] Hey at least it’s one of the Platonic solids! NB Scrupulously scientific – knowledge of dice not required.

To elaborate slightly –

You are a four-sided die, a d4. Otherwise known as a tetrahedron, a “Caltrop”, or (to a lesser degree) “Ol’ Pointy”. This crap bores you, so I’ll get to the point. Others tend to see you as petty, conniving, manipulative, argumentative, defensive, greedy, and needlessly antagonistic. You see yourself as focused, effective, efficient, influencing, shrewd, tactical, and direct. Both points of view are in fact correct. You always know the best way to get things done, a fact that never wins sympathy with others. Whenever you manage to gain control of a situation, your solutions are swift and brutal. Unfortunately everyone else is convinced that granting you such power is, “a bad thing” and often conspire to keep it out of your hands. Such short-sighted fools!

This survey is completely scientific. Despite the mind-boggling complexity of mankind, the billions of distinctly different personalities found on Earth can easily be divided into seven simple categories that correspond to the five Platonic solids, a pseudo polyhedron, and whatever the hell a d100 is. The results of this quiz should be considered not only meaningful but also infallible, and pertinent to your success as a fully realized individual. If you feel the results of this examination do not match your perceived personality, you should take whatever drastic measures are needed to cram your superego back into proper alignment, as described by the quiz results.

And if you believe that, we have some really great critical-hit insurance to sell you.

  1. D6

    Plain, Predictable and trustworthy.

    ” You are a good old-fashioned six-sided cube, otherwise known as a d6. Others know you to be plain, predictable, conservative, average, ordinary, and downright boring. You prefer to describe yourself as dependable, honest, practical and trustworthy. People usually know what to expect from you, since you rarely hold any surprises. You hate to make decisions, and if forced to decide, you’ll always fall back on how it was done in the past. You always order the same thing at your favorite restaurant, and your jokes, while funny, are never too offensive. It seems that you are well liked, but maybe that’s simply because there’s nothing to hate.”

    That’s surprisingly accurate actually.

    pete, where do you find these things? Are you on a quest to find yourself or something? Just get yourself a backpack, some beer and go hiking across the country.

    It’s the only way! 😉

  2. D6, how dull!

    My brother was (& probably still is) into all this RPG pre-pubescent rubbish. I can’t believe I’ve done this quiz; Urrgh, I feel dirty.

  3. I think the test is broken… I really should be non-euclidean… 😉


    You are the rare, the overlooked, yet incredibly useful dodecahedron: the d12. You are a creative, romantic soul. You often act without thinking, but make up for your lack of plans with plenty of heart. You easily solve problems that stump others, but your answers tend to put you into even deeper trouble. You write long, detailed backgrounds for all your characters, and are most likely to dress up as one or get involved in cos-play. You can be silly at times and are easily distracted by your own day dreams, but are at the end of the day you’re someone who can be depended on.

  4. *Do you mean on paper, or on the school’s computer? *

    Hey – creeping ageism on Slugger! Our school had barely caught up with the abacus when I left!

  5. D6: that’s the postal code of where I grew up in Dublin. Which also makes me a hexahedron, the squarest of the square Platonic solids. And the site has a Finnegans Wake reference.

    Spooky x spooky x spooky.

    Although, I do wish there was nothing about me to hate. My life would be so much easier.

    On second thoughts…, Life? Don’t talk to me about life.

    I now want a nut.

  6. “A fine example of simple elegance, the d8 is one of the least appreciated types of dice, and is often neglected.”

    So true, so true.


  7. You’be been linked back at my pad.

    And I is a d20.

    You are the large, round, friendly d20! (You probably didn’t know this, but the shape of the twenty-sided die is called an Icosahedron.) You are the friendly, outgoing, outspoken, leader of friends … etc, etc.

    Other than being large and round, this is nothing like me.

  8. d20
    “You are the friendly, outgoing, outspoken, leader of friends. You are often looked up to, even though you don’t normally deserve it. Most other types secretly wish they were you, and you’d give them tips on how, if only you had a clue yourself. Your charisma is often all you need, but you have your occasional moments of brilliance as well–just never when it’s actually needed. You are the all-around good guy, a dependable chum, a respectable foe, and an inspiration to those who need”
    Hey that’s the best thing I’ve heard after a lousy empty day 🙂

  9. I’m a D20. Friendly, loyal and a natural leader

    God my self esteem has been lifted, and on a Saturday morning too. I’m certain to pull at the bar tonight.

  10. I’m a D4

    I think it’s broke.

    I did the quiz like five times and answered different each time and I get a D4.

    I don’t understand I’m not petty. Shrewd and evil…maybe, sometimes,every now and then….. Okay alot I can’t lie… or maybe I can.
