About This Quiz

Good hugs, weird hugs, creepy hugs or overly polite hugs ... which kind do you deliver? You might think your hugging style is friendly but professional, but it's possible that the people you hug feel like your heart isn't really in it. Or you might think that your hugs are kind and gentle, while those you clinch dislike how you press your body too closely against theirs and allow the embrace to go on for waaaay too long. 

In this quiz, we're going to discover exactly what kind of hugger you are, by asking some questions about your physical boundaries, typical hugging style, how you feel after you hug others and more. We'll also inquire about how comfortable you are with physical intimacy, public displays of affection and sharing your emotions. 

The stereotype is that extroverts tend to give big, bold bear-hugs, while introverts opt for a more subtle touch, but is this true in your case? Or are you a shy librarian who offers the sweetest hugs in town, or a bold pastor who impersonally side-hugs even the closest members of his flock? If you want to know once and for all which type of hugger you are, it's time to play this quiz!
