If you chose mostly A’s:
You’re a planning princess, a shopping queen! If there’s one thing you know how to do, it’s shop and you are in your truest and final form on Black Friday. Now, you also tend to be a tad aggressive when scoring those sales. It could do some good to ease up just a bit—you don’t want to scare people…or maybe you do. Either way, happy shopping!
If you chose mostly B’s:
You’re a wanderer, maybe even a Black Friday newbie. You love to shop, but you’re definitely not as intense as some people. You may want to change that for Black Friday. People get serious about their shopping! Get a little aggression going! Put a little bass in your voice! And, if you see that dress that you’ve been dreaming about, go run and get it! It also might help to write a list so you’re not blindly spending all your funds.
If you chose mostly C’s:
You’re a dragger. You don’t really care for shopping (on the surface at least), but you somehow always seem to end up with your family or friends. You may not show it, but you kinda have fun, at least some of the time. As you’re getting dragged along for the Black Friday steals this year, pick up something cute for yourself!
If you chose mostly D’s:
You’re a cyber shopper and you’re waiting for Cyber Monday. You can’t handle the crowd and you don’t care for the hassle. You stick to online shopping and you will be getting those sales…just a couple days later. Now, be careful! Swiping your credit card can be entirely too easy. But remember, we’re getting deals not debt!
