Quiz: Which Berkeley street are you?

Michael Drummond/Senior Staff

We all have our Berkeley spirit animals — from the people on Sproul to the guy constantly asleep in 9 a.m. lecture. But has anyone ever considered that Berkeley spirit streets might exist? We at the Clog created a quiz so that you can at last determine which street in Berkeley reflects your personality the most.

  1. What personality trait do you like the most about yourself?
    1. Ambitious. You’re determined to succeed no matter what happens in life.
    2. Friendly. You love everyone, and everyone loves you.
    3. Quirky. UC Berkeley is the perfect school for you because you’re anything but ordinary.
    4. Reserved. You could spend hours with a book in North Reading Room and be perfectly content.
  2. What would your ideal vacation be?
    1. You’d be in Washington, D.C. working or having a prestigious internship. What’s a vacation?
    2. You’d rather go backpacking in Europe for four weeks with family and/or friends.
    3. Las Vegas! You can’t wait to not remember what happened.
    4. Exploring in Paris with only baguettes and your thoughts as company is your dream.
  3. What’s your favorite animal?
    1. A Golden Bear, obviously
    2. A panda
    3. A butterfly
    4. A polar bear
  4. If you had $20, what would you spend it on?
    1. New textbooks
    2. Gifts for your mom
    3. A tapestry
    4. Succulents
  5. Which book would you read first?
    1. Life: For Dummies
    2. The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants
    3. A book no one has heard of
    4. Anything by Shakespeare
    1. You’re Bancroft Way. You know what you want in life, and you’re not afraid to get it. You’re here mainly for the academics. Bancroft is your spirit street because pedestrians aren’t afraid of anything here, and all the libraries are only a quick walk away.
    2. You’re Telegraph Avenue. From T-Shirt Orgy to C.R.E.A.M., everyone loves the stores on Telegraph. You’re like this street in human form because you embody the social aspect of UC Berkeley. You keep the important things in life — such as Pacific Cookie Company and loved ones — always close to you.
    3. You’re Shattuck Avenue. You’re extraordinary. Shattuck is your spirit street because you’re not afraid to be different, outgoing and bold when you have to be. You could fit in everywhere and chances are you’ve had more phases over the years than you can count.
    4. You’re Dwight Way. Although you love your friends, you also love spending time by yourself. You’re reserved and quiet at times but are still an essential part of everyone’s life, not to mention you’re pretty.
