If You Scored:
Congratulations, you uber-spoiled person! You’re from District 1. This means you’ve been trained as a Career most of your life, and will probably take out four or five other tributes on the first day of the Games. I hope all those luxury items you’ve created for the Capital keep you warm at night, you jerk.
Congrats, you’re from District 3! Having been raised in relative wealth, you’ve done hard work at the factories most of your life. Luckily, that 9-5 shift has given you plenty of time to prepare your skills as a Tribute. You’ll probably do pretty well in the Games, until Katniss puts an arrow through your head.
Ahoy there, matey! You’re from District 4! The sea-faring life is for you, and you spend most of your days competing with the crew from Deadliest Catch for most unrewarding job ever. You probably don’t get to date much, since you always smell like fish, and your only hope in the Arena is if it’s a water design. Now, go fillet me a sea bass, please.
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Well, I don’t know, but you probably do, since you’re from District 7, aka the lumber district. If you are a man, won’t you please consider growing a voluminous beard to match your lumberjack clothes? And, if so, won’t you then consider being my boyfriend?
Hey there, seamstress! You’re from District 8, the textile district, and while everyone else is busy killing each other in the Arena, you’ll be sewing something. Which is good, because I have a bridesmaid’s dress that needs taking in, so do you think you could get on that? Also, cheer up: if you survive the Games, maybe you can get an apprenticeship with Cinna!
Hello, Edison, how’s the makeup gun coming along? You’re from District 9, the district that generates electricity. I’d like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for generating the power that runs my air conditioner. Unfortch, I’m not sure how well you’re going to do in the Games . . . though maybe you can team up with the Tributes from District 4 and electrocute all the other competitors.
Moo! Hey there, dairy queen, you’re from District 10! You’ve grown up on a ranch all of your life, which means you know all about animal husbandry. So could you please go to the Capitol and cut the balls off President Snow? The rest of your country will thank you.
Wanna start a revolution and then get your head clubbed in? Yes? Good, cause you’re District 11, and that’s your new favorite thing to do. Any district that produced Rue is a good district to be from; plus, I hear you’re wicked bakers. Can I have some fresh bread, please?
Well well well, if it isn’t District 12! The good news is that you’re probably BFF with Katniss, Peeta and Gale; the bad news is you’re poor as hell and, unless you’re a middle-aged alcoholic, you’re never going to win the Games. Nice knowing ya, kid! Try not to die in a mine explosion!
Congratulations? You’re from the mysterious and apparently non-existent District 13. After the Capital of Panem decided to drop the bomb on you, you all died . . . or did you? Some think you may be hiding out in underground caves – radiated to bits – and just waiting to take part in the uprising. Hopefully those nuclear bombs left you with some kickass superpowers, cause we’re going to need them.
Congratulations! You’re from either District 2, District 5 or District 6! I have no idea what you do! But considering your districts are still fairly well off, I’m guessing that your life is pretty sweet.
If you had five different answers: OMG, I can’t help you, schzophrenic person! How dare you be well-rounded? This is a QUIZ! There’s no time for having multiple interests! Put yourself in a box and stay there!
Let us know which District you’re from (bonus if you can remember your Hunger Games name)! We need to plan our strategy for
killing you embracing you as friends.
