  • Banjo:You're probably Honey Boo-Boo's third cousin removed four times or something. Stay away from the rest of us.
  • Bassoon:You try to be different, and are probably socially awkward. Odds are you don't talk much, and when you do you say the wrong things.
  • Bass Clarinet:You're awkward and obsessive.
  • Baritone:Identity unknown. You are a mystery, a Pandora's box.
  • Cello:Underneath the band uniform you have a set of rock hard abs and the body of a god or goddess. You have a smile to kill for but are also painfully shy.
  • Clarinet:You like to turn up your nose at other people in your section and complain about them behind their backs. You're a harsh critic.
  • Double Bass:You're extremely intelligent and shy but your thoughts are scattered and random. You probably have dark hair.
  • Flute:If you're good you're probably a bitch to other people in your section. Even if you aren't, people talk about you no matter what. You complain a lot and while you're emotionally capable of handling yourself, you probably wouldn't survive for too long out in the middle of the woods. Odds are you would also kill other flautists to get a higher chair.

I sometimes feel offended by American stereotypes, but then I remember that we had a nationwide panic when they stopped making Twinkies.
