If you answered the majority of questions with “A” then you have a great relationship with your roommate. Congratulations. Don’t tell your friends though, as it might cause them to secretly loathe you-or else bathe themselves in envy.

If you answered the majority of questions with “B” then eh, it could be worse.

If you answered the majority of questions with “C,” you should start asking yourself some tough questions. How did you get into this mess? How do you get out? Who are you? It’s time for some serious meditation.

If you answered the majority of questions with “D,” hold off on calling an exorcist. Chances are your roommate will actually become one of your closest friends. While you might want to bang your head against the wall, it’s only human nature to hate the ones you love, right? Or maybe not. Maybe you should run for the hills before it’s too late.
