Are You Roommate Material? Take This Test to Find Out

Well, are you?

Have you ever rented an apartment and had a roommate? How about a bad one? Whether you rent in Penn Quarter or Pennsylvania, the dynamic is pretty much the same.

Lucky for us, Psychology Today has come up with a Roommate IQ Test, a set of 11 questions designed to see if you yourself are roommate material. The test takes 5 or 10 minutes to complete and is admittedly a little tongue-in-cheek at times, but it does make you think – and will hopefully help you glean some insight into whether platonic shacking up is a good idea.

The test gives you a fairly detailed psychological profile as it refers to being a roommate. I scored an 82, which is pretty good, though I think – I know – I’d be a challenging roommate because I can be rather sloppy … and I play my music loud. One thing though, I’m a bit cat-like, so I’d leave your butt alone more than not. The profile said I understood the golden rule, which I try to live by (though other people may disagree on that one … hey, are you perfect? So can it!).

Take the test and, even better, make your would-be roomie do the same.
