Which cell organelle?

Here's a test with a science twist: which cell organelle are you? (At OK Cupid via Adventures in Ethics and Science)
Mitochondria You scored 63 Industriousness, 16 Centrality, and 15 Causticity!
You're a mitochondrion! The mitocondria is a "power plant" of the cell. Nothing could ever get done in the cell without you creating energy. Since both the Citric Acid cycle and Oxidative Phosphorylation happen inside the mitochondria, you are critical to every eukaryotic cell. You are always a hard worker, no matter what you are tasked to. Most of the time, you tend to be working in the background, but that often suits you just fine. You get along with almost everyone, and aren't these the most important things?
