Quiz: What Paracord Color Are You?

Quiz: What Paracord Color Are You?
Find out where your personality lands you on the paracord color chart

We have an astounding amount of color choices here at Paracord Planet. I don't mean to sound cocky when I say that, either--it's just truly mind-boggling how many colors of paracord exist. When I first explored our warehouse, my jaw just about dropped. All of the different shades of blues, the variety of camo combinations, the multi-colored options; I didn't know where to begin! I do believe, however, that one's paracord color choice says a lot about their personality. I wear two paracord bracelets on my wrist at all time. One, made with Bulldog cord because of my love for dogs, and one made with Kelly Green cord because I love money. What? Judge me. Maybe you have a unique story for why you chose the colors on your wrist, too. However, there is no doubt that one's paracord color choice matches (at least slightly) with their personality. Don't believe me? Take the quiz and see for yourself.

How the quiz works: There will be ten questions with five answers each. Answer each question on a piece of paper. Keep track of all of your answers so that you can grade your scores at the end. You will then count up your amount of "A" answers, "B" answers, "C" answers, "D" answers, and "E" answers. Whichever section, A-E, has the greatest amount of answers in it corresponds to your paracord color. Good luck!

What this means: You are consistent. Some may say 'boring,' perhaps, but you're consistent! You don't need to be around noise, crowds, or anything of the like. You'd prefer to just relax on the couch. And that's fine. Everybody needs some Olive Drab in their life.

If your highest total was in the D's: Congrats! You are Party cord!
