The internet is full of personality quizzes that claim to be able to accurately diagnose mental health issues, determine job compatibility, and even tell you how attractive you are. Unfortunately, many of these quizzes lack scientific validity, and relying on them alone can be misleading. While they can provide entertainment value, they should not be used to make important decisions about one’s personal or professional life.
One of the most recent fads to hit social media is the “what the actual f is wrong with you quiz.” The frank, dark, and hilarious questions are created by deerkings on the uQuiz platform. Questions include: “Do you have crippling loneliness?,” “Have you spent all your life online?”,” and “Which of the quiz creator’s chickens would you keep as a companion?”
Psychologically speaking, putting people into fixed groups based on their answers to simple questions is always oversimplifying complex individuals. Additionally, the shaming and degrading nature of these quiz questions may cause anxiety for some people.
Despite its satirical tone and dark humor, the “what the actual f is wrong you quiz” has garnered positive user feedback, suggesting it can be used as a tool for self-reflection. However, it should not be relied on as a personality test, and individuals should seek professional help from a psychologist or counselor if they have any concerns about their mental health. They should also avoid comparing their results to those of other individuals. As the internet continues to evolve, personality tests will likely become more sophisticated and accurate in order to serve a variety of purposes.
