Mostly A’s

Fountain pen

Well aren’t you an arty fancy pants? As cool as calligraphy with a creative spirit, as well as a ‘je ne sais quoi’ for trends and style, you’re the cream of the crop as an idyllic ink fountain pen.

Mostly B’s


Reliable, resilient, and a little traditional, you’re always there when others need you. Never wavering in a crisis and always hardworking even when you’re worn down, the pencil is what we all need in our lives.

Mostly C’s

Pencil case

Hello Mr/Ms Popular! Your welcoming demeanour is why everyone wants to be your friend, whether it be a home cooked dinner around yours or a crazy party, you’re the glue that brings everyone together.

Mostly D’s


You’re a little prone to mistakes, but you can recover quickly and move on. And yes, you might be a little flaky and messy with a tendency to burn out, but everyone needs you around!

Mostly E’s


A perfectionist with a penchant for the letter of the law, you’re a wise owl who wants to get it right every time. Making choices after careful consideration, you’re a ruler of discipline and precision.

Mostly F’s


Witty and cutting, you’ve sometimes been called prickly by others who don’t get your sassy and often dark humour. You can be a bit sharp but the glimmer in your eye gives the game away that it’s all in jest. Mostly.
