Which Succession Sibling Are You

(1-18 points) You are a Kendall, always trying to prove yourself and never quite succeeding. As much as you try to project confidence and leadership, your impatience and various addictions always trip you up. On the bright side, you have the perseverance and determination of a cockroach.

Which Succession Sibling Are You

(19-36) You are a Siobhan (or Shiv, or Pinky!) You forever stride the line between full commitment and fear of rejection. You think class war is jejune but love enjoying the splendor of its spoils. Your true upside is that you have a killer wardrobe.

Which Succession Sibling Are You

(37-54) You are a Roman (Romulus, if you’re nasty.) You truly enjoy being a vulgar sycophant, mostly because that’s all you’ve ever known. Your confidence knows no bounds, at least until you are challenged, wherein you fold like a pair of twos at the big boy table. And killing hoboes still isn’t a hobby.

(55-72) You are a Connor. Your heart is definitely in the right place, but your GPS is always a little glitchy. You yearn to mentor someone, anyone. You’re eager to guide others up the ladder of success, even though you’ve been on an express elevator since birth.
