What Kind of Friend Are You?

In ecology, every organism has a niche – a role to play in its environment. Well, the same concept applies to friend groups. Every friend has their preferred role that underlies their relationship with everyone else. What’s yours?

Friends can embody a few archetypes which reflect parts of their deeper personality. Think about your own values – do you prize responsibility? Fun and thrill-seeking? Intellectual fulfillment? Or perhaps, simple relaxation and good vibes? These kinds of priorities translate to how you interact with your friends.

Another way to look at it is to know what you contribute to your squad – are you the guy who gets everyone off their butts and out there doing something? Are you the zany type who adds a little bit of unpredictability to everyday situations? Are you the true gamer in your group? Give it a bit of thought.

So – how about it? What kind of friend are you? This Friendship Test will map out the type of friend that you tend to be in your social life.

About our Friendship Personality Test

Friendships have a certain kind of duality – there’s typically something in common that binds the whole group together at first, but as these relationships grow, even highly opposing personalities can become the best of buddies due to how different traits, interests and opinions can complement one another.

Some of your pals are daring and take the lead, while others like to go with the flow. You can have friends that get teary-eyed when talking about their feelings, and who cry at movies, and there are others on whom you can rely to stay logical when others are angry or grief-stricken.

The interplay among various individuals that leads to them becoming friends also helps you grow. The people with whom you choose to surround yourself can impact you in many ways – you might pick up a bit of your friend’s unique lingo, learn to love a new hobby from another, or become more confident and outgoing with other friends.

Ask out your whole squad to take this Friendship Test and find out if there’s a well-balanced mix of friend types in the group!


How do I tell if my friend is depressed?

Although detecting depression can be a complex task, therapists say there are a few common signs of depression for you to watch out for.

Someone depressed will tend to retreat into their own shell; they’ll pass on invitations to hang out, or minimize their presence on social media. They might also sleep or fall sick more often, and they might be awake or asleep at unusual times. 

When you talk to a depressed friend, you might also notice them moving more sluggishly. They might be more forgetful than usual, or zone out of conversations. Some people also gain or lose weight when depression.

How do you befriend an introvert?

Introverts, in general, place a higher value on privacy and personal space.

Instead of hanging out in large, bustling places, introverts prefer to bond one-on-one or with a smaller, tight-knit group. They’re also liable to turn you down if you ask them out of the blue to go somewhere, because going out requires some mental preparation on their part.

Introverts see through people more easily; shallow chit-chat is nothing compared to even a sliver of real, meaningful chemistry with them.
Even if you’re more extroverted, don’t dominate the discussion. Allow for quiet moments to flow naturally, and encourage them to talk. Introverts catch on to who’s attentive and really listening to them, which is far better than someone who gives them generic input and simply talks at them, rather than to them.
