If you’re like me, you’re used to seeing dozens of personality quizzes plastered all over social media. What Lord of the Rings Character are you? What kind of pizza are you? How long would you survive the apocalypse? (I’m Gandalf, I don’t care, and probably not very long.)
While most quizzes can be pointless, they do highlight an interesting point: we love to assess ourselves, find out our natural tendencies, our strengths, and our weaknesses.
So why not do the same with debate?
Each debater has a natural style. Some settle into theirs quickly; others take years cultivating their persona. Each has areas they’re strong in, and areas they need to improve on. Identifying these is the first step to maximizing your presentation style—so here’s a quiz to help you out! (Of course, it isn’t exactly clinically tested. So feel free to retake it until you get a more accurate result.) Next week, keep an eye out for a follow-up post covering each of the results, their strengths, and their weaknesses.
So, what’s your debater persona? This ABSOLUTELY FOOLPROOF quiz will tell you!
