Which Dystopian World Do You Belong To?

If you picked
Mostly A’s – Hunger Games
You belong in the Hunger Games, although maybe not the game itself. You believe that no one should be restricted by a life that they didn’t choose and that the worst possible thing a person can do is accept their “fate.” You aren’t afraid to step out of your comfort zone if you believe it will make you a better individual, especially if it will also be for the benefit of those around you.
Mostly B’s – Ready Player One
You’re frustratingly aware of the fact that the Earth can only
provide so much and that people are taking more than they should, but
you also know that everything starts with you. You do whatever you can
do decrease your waste and help the environment. Despite this, you’re
also guilty of trying to escape the harshness of reality and getting
lost in your own world.
Mostly C’s – The Matrix
While you enjoy the developments of technology and are unafraid to
reap its benefits, there’s a little part of you that’s scared with
just how quickly science is changing things up. Artificial
intelligence and self-thinking robots? No thank you. But while you
hate chancing upon articles that congratulate discoveries, you do like
to think about how science could improve you.
Mostly D’s – Divergent
Tris Prior, is that you? You hate it whenever people stereotype
others based on anything at all, whether that’s race, religion, gender
or even their college degree. And it especially boils your blood
whenever ability is predetermined based on these biases. You love
learning about anything you can get your hands on and your general
knowledge is top notch and almost unmatched.
Mostly E’s – The Purge
Don’t be shocked and scared and angry; we’re not saying you would
kill someone given the chance. You do, however, think that indulging
on something once in a while is not a bad thing and might actually be
beneficial. You don’t mind treating yourself to a good thing once in a
while because you know it keeps you level-headed and sane (and not
want to kill someone).
Mostly F’s – Altered Carbon
You hate the idea of mortality and the time limit that it forces
upon you. You have big ideas for yourself and everyone that you hold
dear, but you know that you need to get started on them ASAP in order
to achieve them and reap the benefits. You aren’t selfish (not by a
long shot), but you do know that you only have 24 hours in a day and
you have your priorities, so you like to-do-lists and plans.
Catch Altered Carbon this January February 2, 2018 on Netflix with Globe.
