What's Your Secret Nationality?

A quiz for some fun on a summer's day.

http://www.bbc.com/future/story/2018...et-nationality

I turned out to be French. So why can't I speak the bloody language then.

Re: What's Your Secret Nationality?

Least matching: Japanese; I must be doing something wrong, considering my location

But Tanzanean? I have no idea, what that means

Re: What's Your Secret Nationality?

I took the test several times, thinking of different people. Most alike first then least alike:

Person 1: Ethiopian and Japanese
Person 2: Congolese and Japanese
Person 3: Agentinian and Congolese
Person 4: Congolese and Belgian
Person 5: Jordanian and Estonian
Person 6: Japanese and Congolese

Fun stuff.

If you look at the bar graphs, apparently you need to be really neurotic to get a match for Japanese. Surely that fits plenty of EFers?
