What kind of outsider are you?


Our happiness editor wrote a great quiz for the final print issue of New Escapologist. It’s called “What kind of outsider are you?” and helps to diagnose where you lie on the spectrum of society dropouts.

The quiz is now recreated online at Buzzfeed and it strangely works even better than it does in print. Check it out.

We’re having a launch party/wake to mark Issue 13. You’re invited! Come along.
The post-print phase of New Escapologist is just beginning. Go here to join in.


Robert Wringham is the editor of New Escapologist. He also writes books and articles. Read more at www.wringham.co.uk/about.
