Are you a Joan, Marilyn or someone else?

I thought this quiz looked fun, and it was fairly accurate.

Who are you?

You Are a Joan!




You are a Joan -- "I need to succeed"

 Joans are energetic, optimistic, self-assured, and goal oriented.

  • * Help me keep my environment harmonious and peaceful.
