It is really important to discover the talents within you, you never know, they might take you somewhere someday. Do the quiz to see what I think you should try. Some of the results you probably wouldn't have thought of doing. You might not agree with me either. However, it won't hurt to try something out.

The Results:)
(Don't look until you're done)

Mostly A~
You should try dancing. It could be anything from hip-hop and acro to jazz and ballet. Your love of bright colours, your dedication and your ability to express yourself would make you a great dancer. Practice and you could become quite good at it!

Mostly B~
You should try archery because you believe in yourself and trust your instincts. It doesn't have to be for hunting, you can do it competitively or for pleasure. It takes talent to hit the target spot on, but you are quiet and easily focused so this may just be the sport for you.

Mostly C~
You should try swimming. You are strong, determined and you love the little world of your own beneath the water and you believe in yourself. These skills would make you a great swimmer.

Mostly D~
You should try art. It could be in the form of painting, playing an instrument or writing songs. You're creative and personal, so your independence could mean you're hard working and love what you do.

Mostly E~
You should try writing. Your imagination, intelligence and ideas would make a great writer out of you. If you stick with it, you could end up becoming an author or publishing a novel!

Mostly F~
You should try horse-back riding. Your teamwork skills and concentration would make you a strong rider. You could do Western such as Barrel racing and Pole bending, but you could also do English like Jumping, Dressage and Cross Country.

Mostly G~
You should try photography. Your eye for the right position to look at things and the way you notice the beauty in everything are two things every Photographer should have.

Mostly H~
You should try Clothing design or Redesign. Your skills of turning something into something else could get you places with design.

Mostly I~
You should try Soccer. It is a great game of action and bravery. Really, I'm not kidding. The bravest players are the best because they aren't afraid of getting in there and getting the ball. Your athleticism and perseverance would make you a good player. 

Whichever one you choose, take the time to practice if you want to succeed. Try your best and,

Be yourself, which in my case means, confidently crazy! Good luck!
