The latest quiz to take over TikTok is the Childhood Trauma Test, which as the name implies, tells you just how bad your childhood was. It’s quite common for different quizzes and tests to become popular on TikTok, with users taking to the platform to share their results. These tests aren’t a TikTok feature, and are instead hosted on third-party websites. There’s no telling why a particular test becomes popular, but once it does, creators don’t want to miss out on the trend.
A shining example of this is the Human Emotion Quiz, which is still doing the rounds on TikTok. The viral quiz is hosted on a Russian quiz platform and requires users to answer 10 questions to tell them which human emotion matches their personality. Depending on the answers to the questions, users can get varying results that include emotions like ‘joy’, ‘anger’, and ‘sadness’, among others.
The Childhood Trauma test is hosted on the BetterMe website, which is a mental health platform that provides users with a meditation and yoga plan based on their answers. The subscription plan appears to be the same irrespective of the results though, so don’t expect anything personalized. Expectedly, TikTok users don’t seem interested in the meditation plan and are mainly taking the test to share their results, rather than subscribing to BetterMe itself. The Childhood Trauma Test can be accessed by clicking on this link, and claims to take just one minute to complete.
How To Take The Childhood Trauma Test
The first page of the test requires you to answer the question “What Do You Experience Most Often“, and provides four options – ‘Guilt’, ‘Abandonment’, ‘Mistrust’, or ‘Other’. Once you choose an option, you’ll need to answer an additional 18 questions, ranging from the nature of your childhood memories to your current stress levels. Each question has multiple choices, but you can only pick one answer. After the test is complete, the website takes a few seconds to process the results. It then asks you to enter an email address to get a copy of the results. This step is mandatory, although the website didn’t actually end up emailing anything.
After entering the email address, BetterMe reveals the test results on its website as well. You get a personal summary, which includes a “score” for various traumas that include rejection, betrayal, abandonment, and injustice. It then recommends a 28-day trauma plan which is a paid subscription. The “plan” claims to be a magic potion that can fix everything from relationship problems to anxiety to even a failing career. At the end of the test, there’s a ‘Get My Plan’ button, which redirects users to a subscription page. If the goal is only to share the test on TikTok though, just taking a screenshot of the results page and posting it in a video will get you views and save you money.
