“What Kind of Stream Are You?” — The Quiz!

Click here to take Like a River’s “What Kind of Stream Are You?” New Quiz. The quiz is a no-strings-attached-or-emails-required gift from me: anonymous, short (3-5 questions) and — to quote an enthusiastic braided river — “crazy fun!” It will link you back to this site and the profile of YOUR stream type.

[Then you could go to my pinterest boards and re-pin a photo of YOU as a stream if you are so inclined!]

Natural Channel Hydrologists recognize eight basic stream types.* Each type has a complex, unique combination of several traits. You’ll likely have things in common with each stream type and — like a river — the shape of your life will vary over time. In fact, after reading the portraits and gazing at the glamor shots, you may resonate with a different stream than the quiz predicted. Trust your instincts. And please leave a comment or drop me a line to let me know– your feedback will help me tweak the quiz itself.

As time goes, I’ll be posting special tips directly from rivers of all types that you can use to flow every more merrily along.



PS — If you’re inclined to answer a 7-question evaluation of the quiz, I’d love it and be ever so grateful.  Click here.
