Oscar Wilde once said: "A cynic is a man who knows the price of everything, and the value of nothing."
And didn't he have a point?
The world, it seems, is full of temptation - and it?s the cynical who are the most likely to survive.
A little healthy cynicism can be a vital survival tactic - but it?s all about balance. Those that are too cynical, miss out on some of life?s little pleasures.
Learning to embrace a touch of healthy skepticism is what this quiz is all about. Do you lead from the front, go with the flow, or drag everyone down with your negativity?
Find out which side of the spectrum you fall into: Annoyingly Upbeat, Braindead (it's not as bad as it sounds), Total Downer, or Drama Queen.
