Which Of These 8 Party Personalities Are You?


A good party can bring out the best (or worst) in guests. The eskies are full, the fairy lights are on, and the chip n’ dip is making the rounds.

But which party person will you turn out to be? 😉 We’ve come up with 8 iconic personalities you’ll undoubtedly see on your next night out with friends…

1. The Accidental Host

You somehow end up in the kitchen tending to the snacks in the oven or putting food on platters to circulate the party. And when someone needs a new glass or directions to the bathroom, you’re always there to help.

You’re not sure how you ended up with these tasks. (This isn’t even your house?) But you’ve somehow become the host of the party – and you’re doing an amazing job.

2. The Over-Sharer

Not even a few drinks in and you find yourself confessing your sins and deepest secrets to your best friend’s boyfriend’s cousin. Part of you knows you should just stop talking. But it’s fine, right?

It’s not until the next day when you look back over the night that you realise what you said and that it maybe (just maybe) was a little too inappropriate. Oh well 🙂


3. The Bull in a China Shop

You’re not sure how it happened. One minute you were telling someone about your salsa dancing class and now the antique vase is on the floor in lots of tiny, tiny pieces. (Luckily The Accidental Host is there to help you clean it up!)

You’re the clumsy one that somehow manages to defy gravity and the laws of science to make a mess or hurt yourself. You’ll be OK. Just watch your step!

4. The Shouter

You know you’re not deaf but this music is loud and you can’t quite hear the other person talking so you start to raise your voice and before you know it you’ve morphed into The Shouter.

The Shouter is a common party personality once the drinks start to flow. We’ve all been there. It’s not until someone gently says, ‘You don’t need to yell’ (and you retort, ‘I’m not!?’) that you realise you should probably tone it down.

5. The Voice of Reason

Suddenly you see the crowd of people excitedly moving across the party and by the time you work out that so-and-so is going to try and dive bomb off the roof into the pool you know that this is definitely not happening on your watch.

Your authoritative instincts kick in and you talk the offenders out of doing something crazy. It’s lucky you were here. You’ve done a good thing.

6. The DJ

This music sucks and you know it. Everybody knows it. And it’s your duty to the party to fix this musical mess. You find yourself having ‘words’ with the hired DJ or casually taking over the Spotify playlist.

You’re here to save the party. You’re basically a superhero. And how do you know? All you have to do is look at The Dancer…

7. The Dancer

Oh. My. God. This is your jam! Before you know it, you’re tearing up the D-floor with moves you didn’t even know you had. The music is within you. You are the music. Wait, are you on a table?

You’re the first one on the dancefloor and the last one to leave. You’re having an absolute blast and you’ll be paying for it tomorrow  when you can barely move but who the hell cares! Shine on, you crazy diamond.

8. The Smoke Bomb Expert

It’s nearing the end of the night and you’ve had a fab time (or maybe you haven’t?) and you’re just about ready to leave. But you don’t want to make a fuss. You’re not one for goodbyes, especially the drunken kind.

Somehow the timing is perfect and you manage to slip out without anybody noticing. You’ve made it home. A sneaky job well done!
