Maybe Those BuzzFeed Quizzes Aren't 100-Percent Accurate After All

Thanks to BuzzFeed’s unfailingly accurate personality quizzes, I now know that if I were a muppet I’d be Bobo the Bear. If I were a “Mean Girls” character I’d be Kevin Gnapoor. And if I were a ‘90s Alt-Rock Grrrl I’d be Tori Amos.

Shirley Manson of Garbage took the quiz, too. She did not get herself either.

I guess this just goes to show that you have to take these BuzzFeed quiz results with a grain of Veruca Salt.

Or, as my colleague Amanda Hess points out, maybe BuzzFeed is actually genius and Kim Gordon in 2014 is more like Tori Amos in 1995 than she is the ’90s version of herself.
