2’s – Your name is Septimus/Helewys Tilbury! You are an ambitious, ruthless person and will ingratiate yourself with anyone if it helps you get to the top. You always stand out from the crowd and greatness is never far from your reach.

3’s – Your name is Jack ‘The Cad’/Bess ‘The Scold’ Smeaton! You are the life and soul of the party and can light up a room with your wit and charm. Nevertheless, trouble tends to follow you and you’re never far from impending disaster.

4’s – Your name is Lord Henry/Lady Eleanor Ethelbert of Northampton! But you’re so devilishly wonderful I bet you knew that already. You are the essence of English pomp and your family lineage can be traced back to Charlemagne. You do what you damn well please and no curl will tell you otherwise.

5’s – Your name is Brian/Jane Cooper! You’re a chilled out sort of person who hasn’t the time for stress. You live a happy, relaxed life which is largely down to your carefree mentality. In your eyes if you have a comfy chair, a warm house and a couple of good friends, life is just swell.
