… on top of a bed, what would you do?
No one asked me that question, but it’s one of the gazillion quizzes doing the rounds on Facebook.
I can understand why someone would answer an IQ quiz or a personality quiz. You might want to test your IQ. I can see why friends would do the ‘Pet Peeves’ quiz. You want to see if you share peeves in common. If I stretch my imagination, I can also understand why someone would answer the ‘What Disney character are you?” quiz. You love Disney characters and would like to be a mermaid.
However, I simply do not understand some quizzes. Like “What is your Japanese name?” I really did not know that all of us had a secret Japanese name fantasy. Or ‘If you were an animal, what would you be?’ And what’s one supposed to feel if the quiz says you would be a red-bummed baboon?
I definitely don’t understand “If you saw me lying naked on top of a bed, what would you do?” Scream and run out because you are so ugly? Take a picture/video and put it up on YouTube? Hump you? Tell your mother?
Seriously, for those of you on Facebook and answering a-quiz-per-hour, please tell me why.
Now answer this quiz. You answer quizzes on Facebook because:
1. It’s there.
2. My internet is free.
3. Economic meltdown and I lost my job.
4. I’m gunning for the most-quizzes-answered record.
5. I didn’t know things about myself and quizzes shed new light.
All answers will be used for a social networking research. I swear.
Mystique is mystified by quizzes
