1-8: Supportive Shoulder

You’re a kind and considerate friend who is always there to offer a sympathetic ear and supportive words. Your friends know they can rely on you when they need you most. Don’t forget to look out for your own wellbeing as carefully as you do for your mates – your mental health is just as important.

9-16: Super Sidekick

You’re fiercely loyal and uber-protective of your mates. You would never stand for anyone taking advantage of the people you care most about, and you always have their back. We hope you receive the same support from friends in return, whenever you need it most.

17-24: Funny Friend

You’re a firm believer in the phrase, “Laughter is the best medicine’. You hate to see your friend sad and will do everything you can to make them crack a smile. Cheering people up is a great skill but don’t forget to try listening instead of LOLs when your friend is going through a particularly rough patch.
