This isn't me at all.

5 out of 10 for eccentricity!
You're more creative than eccentric – a follower of fashion rather than a quirky trend-setter. But if you just thought outside the box a little – and stopped caring so much what others thought of you – you might be in with a shot of being a true British eccentric. Take some of your fashion disasters (and spare lemon squeezers) to the charity shop and swap them for some less bang-on-trend bits and pieces – or perhaps a jigsaw or two.

I guess it's so wrong, because I'm not British.

out of 10 for eccentricity!Eccentricity isn't your overriding personality trait – in fact, you're pretty straight. You play by the rules and expect other to do the same. You're fascinated by true British eccentrics – Chris Eubank, John McCririck and the like – but you also find them quite frightening and avoid them like the plague at parties. If you want to up your eccentricity credentials try investing in a lemon squeezer or a bog-snorkelling course.

Conclusion: The test is wrong, as if I'M not eccentric, i mean jeez, im related to chris fawkes, how much more eccentric can you be?

Weird. I AM English and got 0 out of 10, while all you 'Mericans get 5 or 10?

But it's actually a setup. They effectively tell you at the start that the right answer to any given question includes the lemon squeezer or bog-snorkelling bit, so you get a point if you toe the line and tick that box.

Of course a true eccentric doesn't care for such artificially constructed pretend zaniness, let alone from a TV show website. They're trying to be all Monty Python, but playing to the crowds.

So if you scored low, you are actually more independent and more inclined to what society-at-large would view as eccentricity than what the mass-media would like you to believe.

Mattie, I want to vote for you but don't particularly want to put that strange word into the dictionary. How can I go about this?

Ah, a Monty Python quote, so you're not really eccentric after all, you just think you are.

Colin gets a vote. I think it's awesome that he doesn't say "awesomeitude".
