Are You Finnish? Test and Find Out if You are Secretly a Finn!

Have you ever wondered that, what if… ,what if actually, you are Finnish?

Do you often feel like the oddball of a group? Does it seem that people don’t understand you? These feelings may be the potential symptoms of some hidden Finnishness inside you. 

In my opinion, you can be a hidden Finn without any Finnish DNA – it’s all about having a Finnish soul.  

I know that for some, finding out that you are secretly a Finn, will be a shock, even a catastrophe. Your identity will turn upside down for a moment.

Your family might have a hard time swallowing this information. They might panic. Luckily, you will respond to panic like Finns do.

So without further ado, let’s do the test!

Are You Finnish? Take the Quiz and Find Out!

Instructions: Answer only “YES” or “NO” to each question. 

#1 There seem to be always bad drivers on the roads when you are driving.

#2 A mobile phone can be used as a safe haven in any social situation.

#3 You love the fact that sweatpants and sneakers are in fashion.

#4 Free samples or free coffee in a grocery shop make you feel utterly delighted.

#5 For you, “soon” means five minutes, not any longer.

#6 You are happy in the elevator, because there, nobody expects you to talk.

#7 When there is a chance of saving a couple of bucks, it is no problem for you to change your day plan and drive extra to claim that gain.

#8 Your level of relaxation correlates with the amount of guzzled shots.

#9 Your positivity correlates with the amount of sunshine and warmth.

#10 You feel calm and peaceful when you hear sad, wistful music.

Now… Count your YESses and scroll down!

I got a 6, but then again two of the questions didn't apply to me (I can't drive or drink since I'm only fourteen and live in the USA)
