Which mathematician are you?

Behind today’s door… a quiz!


This post was part of the Chalkdust 2016 Advent Calendar.

On the thirteenth day of December, Chalkdust gave to me… a super awesome personality quiz. For those of you who have always wondered which mathematician they were in their previous life (and for those who haven’t, but should) Chalkdust has the answer. Just answer a few carefully selected questions and find out for yourself!
