Aside from our basic needs of food, water, shelter and affection, humans have a biological need to procreate. But just because we are all born with this drive doesn't mean we'll all have the same amount of kids, or any kids at all for that matter. You probably have some ideas about whether you want to have kids and, if you do, whether you want just one or want to have a huge family, but do you know how many kids you actually should have based on your personality?
This quiz doesn't look at what kind of a parent you would be based on how you handle certain situations, but instead takes a general look at your basic personality type and then evaluates how many children you should probably have based on that information. After all, who you are as a person is the biggest indicator of how you will be as a parent.
Are you the perfect parent for an only child? Are three kids not a crowd, but the perfect family size? Should you invest in a lot of birth control or should you get busy making an army of mini-yous? You'll have to take the quiz to find out.
What is your favorite color?
Where would the world be without good old ROYGBIV? Of course, since we only have five answers on this quiz, our apologies to those who prefer orange, indigo or brown -as for white and black, those aren't colors anyway but simply shades.
In what range does your lucky number fall?
Naturally, we couldn't possibly put everyone's specific lucky number on here, but with these numerical ranges, we can cover every number out there. If you don't have a lucky number, just choose one that brings up good memories for you.
What's your dream job?
Sure, you might be an accountant or a sales clerk now, but we all have dream jobs even if they're entirely unrealistic. So if you could have any career in the world, what would you want to do with your life?

Even people who completely hated school altogether still had a favorite class, which was probably the one subject they excelled at. So when it comes to education, which of the following classes was the one you didn't want to miss?
Select your favorite historical period:
You don't have to choose the time you'd most want to live in (after all, it would be pretty hard to live with dinosaurs running around), but instead choose the one you find the most fascinating. Essentially, pick the one you would visit if you had a time machine.
What's the best thing to do on a beach?

Name your dream vacation destination:
It could be a family vacation, a couple's trip or even a solo mission, we won't judge. We just want to know where you would want to visit more than any other destination. Which of these cities just ignites your sense of adventure?
What state would you most like to visit?

What is your favorite outdoor activity?
The great outdoors are a great place to relax, refresh and renew yourself. Of course, if you're the kind of person who thinks "ewww" when someone talks about time spent outside, then just choose the activity that would make you the least miserable.
What is your favorite sport?
The thrill of competition and the agony of defeat? It's one of those things humans were born to love, but everyone likes a different sport. We know, not everyone likes these sports, so if you're not into them, just choose the sport you'd enjoy watching with friends the most.

There are tons and tons of cool animals out there, but these five are some of the most popular choices when it comes to "favorite" animals. If your favorite animal isn't listed here, just choose the one you like the best of the bunch.
Select the best pet:

Choose your favorite TV family:
In this case, don't choose the family that you enjoy watching the most (a bad sitcom family can be endlessly entertaining -often more so than one with a healthy family relationship), but the family you most relate with and would like your family to most closely resemble.

When you think "queen of the silver screen," do you think classic beauties, incredible talent or total babes? Which of these five actresses from a variety of film eras is a namesake that will guarantee you'll go see their newest films?

Who is your favorite comedian?
When you think about people that make you laugh, do you like redneck humor, African American comics, raunchy jokes, clean-cut laughs or something in between? In other words, which of these comics makes you laugh the most? (Try to consider only their stand up if you can).

These singers range from the 70s to modern times, but when it comes to this quiz, it's not about how old their songs are, but the style and content of the tunes. So which of these male singers is your favorite?
Who is the best female singer?
Like the male singers, the music from these ladies spans back across the decades, but during their time, these singers were all pop icons -even if their individual sounds are drastically different. So which one would you rather listen to?
Choose the best band of the bunch:
These bands all rock, but not in the same way and just like the male and female singers, their music spans through the years. Ultimately, this one comes down to whether you like punk, classic rock, metal or Christian rock.

What is the best boy's name?
It doesn't have to be a name you would actually give your baby, but at least the name you would be most likely to give your son out of these five. They're all pretty classic names, although some are obviously more popular now than others.
Choose a girl's name:
Like the boy's names, these girl's names don't need to be ones you'd actually name your baby, but just choose the one of the five names you'd choose if you had to pick one. Unlike the boy's names, some of these are certainly more modern than others.

Where do you like to buy groceries?
We've all gotta eat, but where you shop for groceries says a lot about you and what kind of a parent you should be as well. Do you like bulk buys or quick convenience items? Do you care more about cost, style or speed?

What is the best date night food?
Imagine your fantasy guy/gal invited you out for a meal and gave you the following five options for diner. Which date night meal will you pick (even if you secretly would much rather have duck a l'orange or even a simple pork chop).
What is the best fast food option?
We're willing to bet you never thought what you eat would have such a big impact on how many kids you should have, but let's be honest, how you eat is also a big reflection of who you are and what your values are.
