Seriously, ignore "personality" as a guide to choosing an instrument, and consider instead how many or few opportunities you will actually have to play the instrument you would choose. A high school marching band doesn't care if it has a large number of players of any particular instrument. If it had fifty tubas, thirty drummers and one saxophone, it would still send all of its musicians out onto the field. Probably none of them would have a "gig" anywhere after graduation, however.

Meanwhile, that kid who sang and played folk songs on his guitar at student assembly still has a reasonable shot at finding places to play his guitar later in life, even if he never hits the big time.

You used the wrong "pie". P-i-e is the food pie, whereas the number pi is just p-i.

For 40% you are: You should play the guitar! You can play almost any popular song with a guitar, whether country or rock! You have a cool, easygoing and relaxed personality. The guitar is the perfect choice for you.

You could also get this result:
For 20% you are: A violin would fit you perfectly. You are smart, creative and determined, which is all you need to play the violin. Give it a try! I know you'll enjoy the challenge and be so glad you picked up this cool instrument! Profile B

Or even this one:
For 20% you are: Try the xylophone! It has a unique sound and would be a great fit for you. It's also a fun instrument because you can move around a lot when you play it. Profile C

Or even this one:
For 10% you are: You should consider playing the drums or even a trumpet. You love to be loud and in the spotlight. Everyone loves the drummer! And everyone definitely hears the trumpet.:) Profile D

Or even this one:
For 10% you are: Try the flute. It has a pretty, light sound with a bunch of positions and 😘s. While it might take a while to learn, as long as you practice and get better, you'll love it! Profile E

Violin seems like a good instrument to learn. How difficult is it? It sounds great played on its own or with a group.

I have an old piano that still works and that I am trying to play. But pianos aren't portable. A digital keyboard with touch-sensitive and weighted keys (and at least 76 keys!) could be more practical for beginners.

I played trumpet in high school band, but my college did not have a band. It was fun to play the trumpet but was limited in opportunities after I graduated. This is an all-too-common story I think.
