People admire you for your work ethic and drive and often look to you for inspiration — even if you don’t know it. You may have the weight of certain stereotypes pressing down on you, but you don’t let them affect the way you live your life.
    2. Wiliam Shaibel: You’re a hard worker! Just like Mr. Shaibel, you are meticulous about your work and a supportive friend to those around you, although you are a bit serious at times. People can always depend on you in times of need, and they truly value your opinion. Even if you prefer to keep to yourself at times, your closest friends will always be there for you when you need them because you are there for them, too.
    3. Jolene: You are an amazing friend! Just like Jolene, you’re fun, light-hearted and motivated to achieve your goals. You also aren’t afraid to tell your friends the truth, especially if it’s for their own benefit. You support others and are genuinely happy to see them succeed in life. In turn, your friends adore you and are always cheering you on from the sidelines.
    4. Benny Watts: You’re the “fun one” in your friend group! You might be a little unpredictable even to your closest friends, but you always enjoy a good time. You also have a very particular brand, and everyone around you has learned to accept it as part of your charm.
