• I took the What’s Your Architectural Personality? quiz. My results said:
You’re solid as a Ranch house!
Simple and suburban by nature, you exude a cozy warmth that lets people know you don’t mind if they leave their shoes on in the house — it’s only carpet, after all! Family and friends are important to you, and you love having them stop by. While not overly fussy or vain, you care about your looks — but honestly, you’re happiest in sweatpants. To you, life isn’t measured in the goods you’ve acquired, but in time well spent.
“Ranch homes tend to be easy to maintain because they’re often made of brick, which requires little fuss, and they’re sparsely adorned.”
• Oddly accurate, don’t you think? [Even more interesting when you consider that the last question on the quiz asked which dog I preferred: a basset hound or a golden retriever? I chose basset hound. If I had chosen golden retriever, then my architectural personality would have been Greek Revival— which doesn’t seem like me at all even though I like golden retrievers.]
