Thinking of setting up a dotcom company, but not sure whether you have the skills and drive to make it happen? The answer could be a Web site that purports to answer all these kinds of questions and tell you what kind of personality you are - www.emode.com.

Log on and you're presented with a list of topics, ranging from the serious to the downright daft, including Are you a risk taker? Are you a first date disaster? How much do you blush?

Click on a topic and you are presented with a questionnaire. The questions reflect the seriousness of the topic. For example, when taking the loony test, the first question is: Have you ever worn a costume to the movie so you would look like one of the characters? Anyone who answers yes to this probably doesn't need to continue with the test because the verdict is pretty obvious.

As for me, life was looking pretty good - my IQ was very high, I had a good chance of becoming a dotcom millionaire and my celebrity match was Harrison Ford - a favourite of mine ever since his Indiana Jones days - and then I foolishly opted for the What breed of dog are you? quiz. A pug was the distinctly unflattering answer. So my advice is don't log on unless you're prepared to be insulted.
