Which Founder of the United States Are You Most Like?

Which Founder Are You? is a twelve question personality quiz designed by the National Constitution Center. The purpose of the quiz is to help quiz takers identify which founding father they are most like. According t0 the quiz I am most like George Washington.

Thanks to my old University of Maine at Farmington academic adviser Dr. James Melcher for sharing this quiz.

Applications for Education
I showed this quiz to a couple of colleagues today and we all thought that the quiz would be a good thing to have students take as the introduction to a research assignment. We thought that by taking the quiz and identify with the person they are researching.
