How cliche are you?

I am going to assume that a lot of us are cliche even if we don't like to admit it. We all crave happy endings, for heros to win, and for karma to come back around. What we forget is that cliches prevent progress.

Why is this? Well cliches overuse an idea to the point where the idea just loses its' meaning. There is nothing romantic, patriotic, or passionate about an idea that no longer has meaning. And it just keeps on going to the point where forget what originality is and we're stuck. Are you cliche?

3. A man meets a woman. They hate each other at first but after a certain amount of time they begin to slowly fall for one another. Circumstances and pride separate them for a period of time yet they are reunited later under different circumstances. They both realize how ridiculous they have been, get back together, and live happily ever after. Do you like this cliche?
Absolutely, it is so romantic and in some ways realistic too. The fact that it's present in so many movies suggests that it's a really appealing storyline.
Well in some movies this fits perfectly with what the director is trying to convey but I will admit this storyline is somewhat overdone. Yet I find myself drawn to these kinds of cliches sometimes.
No! This storyline is ridiculously overdone. I'm tired of the predictability of this plot in novels and movies. Get another storyline already!!
4. There's a guy who hasn't led the greatest life out there. He's either a down-on-his-luck kind of guy or just plain average. Someone comes along and tells him that he is the only one who can save the world and/or complete a grueling/impossible task. He doesn't believe at first but soon he realizes that he may be "the one." He battles for the first time--and loses. He loses faith in himself but when the situation calls for it he rises to the challenge and does what he previously thought he couldn't accomplish. Is this cliche?
Yes. If I can recognize this storyline across various hero movies then yes it must be cliche.
Sometimes. There are movies that tend to follow this plot but then again there are also others that drift away from this kind of storyline.
No. This is perfectly normal.
5. A girl walks into her apartment. She hears odd noises and decides to investigate. She opens her bedroom door and sees her boyfriend with another girl. Before she can fully process the sight she dashes away without anyone's knowledge. She assumes the worst. BUT it was just a misunderstanding. Her boyfriend was in the bedroom watching a domestic violence documentary--in which the victim enjoys pain--with his sister. Which explains the odd noises and the girl. Yet when the boyfriend tries to call the girlfriend she can't seem to forgive him. They get in a huge fight and break-up. Weeks later the girlfriend learns the truth and realizes it was all a huge misunderstanding. The boyfriend forgives her for assuming he was like that, and they get back together. Is this cliche?
Definitely. It happens in movies all the time. If the characters actually tried to process the whole situation or stayed a few seconds longer they would have realized that the while thing was a big misunderstanding. They could've avoided it but since it's cliche they didn't.
Yeah I'm going to say it's cliche but since I don't want to agree with you or admit that I kind of like this cliche I'll just say no.
It's not cliche. Everytime this happens in a novel/movie I'm still surprised by it.
6. Is love our savior? And can it be our redemption?
Sure. Love saves us from our self-pity in almost all circumstances and makes us better people. Love also redeems us of our past grievances and mistakes by showing that we're capable of accepting it.
Love can save us but it can also cause us to do some pretty horrific things in the name of it. Love can also redeem us of our past mistakes but at the same time if you love the wrong kind of person or the wrong kind of object it might as well not be love. There's no redemption in that if under the surface it's still wrong or inappropriate.
The pessimist in me says no. How can a thing such as love, something that you can't see or touch, save and redeem us?
7. Should there always be a happy ending?
Nah. That stuff is just for Disney movies.
I'm not sure. People naturally want things to work out so it gives them hope but at the same time some stories are more powerful when it ends in tragedy instead.
Yes. That's what I live for!
8. Why are cliches so bad?
It basically makes an idea, person, or situation less effective because it has been so overused that it just loses its' meaning and passion.
It keeps us from progressing because we're stuck regurgitating the same idea over and over instead of coming up with something new. But it's nice being predictable and not having to think.
I don't see anything wrong with it. There's a lot of sentimentality associated with cliches.
9. Do you use cliches a lot in your general conversations, writings, and thoughts?
Yes to all three. I'm filled with cliches.
I use them here and there. Not all the time though.
I prefer to keep it original so no.
10. Are cliches sometimes confused with traditional values? Aka the housewife etc.
Now that I think about it, yeah.
It depends on the cliche as well as the traditional value. Like how men are expected to be the breadwinners. Or that southerners are expected to be racist but yet prudish.
Nope. I don't think so. Nuh-uh.
11. Do you think that your thinking leans on the cliche side?
I wouldn't know. I don't know myself that well.
I wouldn't say "leans" more like "resides."
Why don't you tell me huh?
12. I'm going to assume that you're a teenager, if not, then bear with me. Are you anything like the cliche rebellious, lost teen that is so often portrayed in cinema?
Somewhat like that.
I have a different kind of rebellion. I'm a unique rebel.
I'm a good kid and I'm tired of that cliche. It's the reason I can't go into the store, or the library without being eyed suspiciously.
13. Have you ever been a victim to "puppy love?"
I'd like to forget about that if you don't mind.
Nooooo.....[yes]
Maybe.
This is a legit no.
14. I'm also going to assume that you have a gotoquiz account. Are you on constantly?
I don't have an account so I can just ignore this question.
Why I contribute to the forums, create polls, and take other peoples' quizzes. I live here pretty much.
I'm not addicted to the website but I'm on often enough.
Not at all.
15. Do you use a lot of teen lingo when you speak?
Yes.
No.
Occasionally.
I'm not a teen. I wish!!
16. If you have made any quizzes do you just throw in random stuff because you're bored?
All the time! The cow hopped over the PSP to meet with the chicken on the other side of the Taco Bell. hahah
No. Unlike other people I'm actually mature.
Can say that I have. Sometimes.
17. Well this is goodbye...Thanks for taking my quiz.
Have a nice life!
