What kind of builder are you? is a personality quiz on the Play Nintendo website.[1] The quiz determines whether the player aims for complexity or simplicity when building something. It was made for Nintendo Builders Week 2015, an event that ran on Miiverse from August 24 to August 31, 2015 to celebrate the then-upcoming release of Super Mario Maker; over the course of this week, Nintendo selected and showcased courses made by fans in games with level builders such as Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars, Wrecking Crew, Stretchmo and Excitebike.[2]


The player has a total of five questions to answer. Each question gives the player two answers to choose from, with their final result depending on each answer they chose. When clicked on, the player moves on to the next question. At the end of the quiz, a message will pop up showing the player's final result. The player can then choose to either take the quiz again or take a different quiz on the website.
