If you were a "David Bowie," would you be the Thin White Duke or Ziggy Stardust? If you were a Michael Jackson song, would you be "Bad," or would you be staring at "The Man In the Mirror?"
Do you know the answer to this quiz? Chances are you do.
Thanks to a deluge of incredibly popular online quizzes from pop-culture Web sites like Zimbio and Buzzfeed, you may already know the answers to these not terribly pertinent questions. While these sites and others like them generate more content than these Q&A's, the draw, at least of late, has been prefabricated quizzes that ostensibly tell us something about ourselves.
Here's how it works: you spot a quiz like "Which Classic Rock Band Are You?" on your Facebook feed. You're a huge Led Zeppelin fan and you have no doubt you are Page, Plant and Bonham melded into one singular badass. So you take the quiz, which is brief enough to be completed while waiting in line at the grocery store.
