We we’re recently reading our bible, you know Cosmo, and we found this quiz and decided our followers should take it too. It may just be a wake-up call for you.
Are you self-sabotaging on the web?
Remember, no one needs to know what you score so be honest with yourself.
1. When you hear your frenemy from college started a successful online business, you:
A. Check out the business, and wish them the best. B. Ask mutual friends about it and potentially visit the site. C. Scoff at the idea that the business will even be successful
2. If you didn’t have internet access for 24 hours, you’d feel:
A. Lost. You just don’t feel like yourself when you’re not plugged in. B. Annoyed. It’s pretty inconvenient, but you’ll survive. C. Like it was Saturday (Usually your off-line day)
3.Your Instagram feed consists mostly of:
A. Selfies B. Intricate looking cocktails C. Your cat
4. You just got bitched at by your boss. When you get back to your cube, you:
A. Google happy animals and just try to breathe B. Write an annoyed tweet, a sarcastic FB post and a scathing blog entry. C. Pull up the report she reamed you out for and grudgingly start fixing it.
5. You notice your ex is now “in a relationship.” Your response:
A. Unfriend him (if you haven’t already) B. Spend the next two hours looking through his new girlfriend’s photos. C. Send her a friend request.
1. a-2, b-3, c-1
2. a-3, b-2, c-1
3. a-3, b-2, c-1
4. a-2, b-3, c-1
5. a-1, b-2, c-3
5-7 points: Your Facebook friends are your real friends and you don’t even know if your ex is alive. Yet, our online presence has become an extension of ourselves, sometimes representing the person we want to be (how sad).
8-11 points: You probably occasionally search for your ex, and do some creeping but you know when to pull back. You’re letting the internet work for you, not against you.
12-15 points: If we could spill coffee on your laptop, we would. Some studies have shown that Facebook addicts have lower self-esteem, so take a chill pill. Learn to control your habits now before it does damage.
We hope this made you realize how your internet habits effect you. Don’t be hard on yourself if you we’re in that 12-15 point category. Just take a break, get a hobby and make yourself more interesting!
