Mostly A's: Fire Charmer

Mostly B's: Earth Charmer

Mostly C's: Air Charmer

Mostly D's: Water Charmer 

Fire Charmer: You're passionate and bold, and you thrive on excitement.  You may come on a bit strong sometimes, but no one can say you're ever boring.  Your greatest charm asset is your unstoppable confidence, so exude it proudly.

Earth Charmer: You're practical, stable, and understanding.  You have a strong connection to nature, and people feel comfortable around you.  A little more spontaneity would do you good, as you value tradition and tend to fall into predictable routines.  Your greatest charm asset is your natural sense of wonder; let it show through your sparkling eyes.

Air Charmer: You're intelligent, eloquent, and active, and you're always up for an adventure.  You love a good conversation, and as you're also prone to wanderlust, you're the perfect road trip companion.  You go with the flow, and your nonchalant attitude can make you seem insincere at times.  Your greatest charm asset is happiness, as you never stay in a slump for very long. Cheer up those around you and you’ll bring a smile to your crush’s face.

Water Charmer: You're sensitive, emotional, and intuitive, and you're a natural at romance.  You can be a bit shy and timid, and you could stand to act with just a little more boldness.  Your greatest charm asset is intrigue, as you are the queen of mystery. Play with your coyness and subtlety; these tricks get dates!
