Dissecting Hong Kong's Neural Mechanisims 

What Brain Are You?

Are you a debbie downer, a happy camper—or pure evil? Take our handy-dandy brain quiz to discover which of these three easily identifiable brains you own.

  1. You come across an injured dog in the street, whimpering. You…
    a. Take it into your home and nurse it back to health.
    b. Take it home because the Instagram potential  for saving a wounded puppy is INSANE.
    c. Call the authorities to have it put down.
  2. You discover that your SO has been cheating  on you. You…
    a. Forgive them. We’re all human and we all make mistakes.
    b. Dump them and grudgingly install Tinder again.
    c. Dump them, relieved that you didn’t get caught cheating first.
  3. You are propositioned by a wealthy tycoon: $1 million for one night of passion. You…
    a. Refuse the cash, compassionately. What kind of broken person would do this?
    b. Take the money and suggest a long-term retainer arrangement.
    c. Take the money, but also videotape the encounter for blackmail purposes later.
  4. You are walking down the street when the person in front of you drops their new iPhone 6s on the ground. You…
    a. Return it. You’d want someone to do the same for you.
    b. Snatch it up. It’s their fault.
    c. Return it, but use it to strike up a relationship in which you have emotional leverage for life.
