What is the new ‘human feeling’ quiz and how do you play it?

Is this Generation Z’s answer to noughties magazine personality quizzes? 

Thousands of TikTok users from around the world are sharing the results of a new 11-question quiz that tells you what type of ‘human feeling’ you are.

Results range from ‘sincere love’ to ‘humility’ and ‘tired’, and are being shared on the video-sharing app under the hashtag #humanfeelings.

Videos generally involve a still image of the user with a caption announcing that they tried the test and this is their result, before a screenshot of the quiz revealing their ‘feeling’.

The ‘what kind of human feeling are you’ quiz is hosted on Russian website Uquiz, and the questions and answers are written in Russian so require translation for English speakers.

The fifth question reads ‘flower language. choose what you like the most’, for example.

Potential answers to this question include ‘crocus – joy, fun, freshness of feelings. “You gave me unforgettable moments.” and ‘vicar – “will you dance with me?”‘.

Other questions ask you to choose a picture of a beverage out of a series of images, and question six asks ‘is it okay to have feelings?’.

The quiz is comprised of 11 multiple-choice questions. One asks you to choose a picture of a beverage out of a series of images, and another asks 'is it okay to have feelings?'

WHAT ARE THE FOUR PERSONALITY ‘CLUSTERS’ RESEARCHERS CLAIM WE ALL FALL INTO? 

Experts from Northwestern University sifted through data from more than 1.5 million questionnaire respondents.

Their research suggests that everyone falls into one of four distinct clusters of personality types.

These are —

1. Average: Average people are high in neuroticism and extraversion, while low in openness.

2. Reserved: The Reserved type is emotionally stable, but not open or neurotic. They are not particularly extroverted, but can be somewhat agreeable and conscientious.

3. Role Models: Role Models score low in neuroticism and high in all the other traits. They are dependable and open to new ideas

4. Self-Centred: Self-Centred people score very high in extraversion and below average in openness, agreeableness and conscientiousness.

What results are people getting?

Once you have answered all 11 questions in the quiz, it will tell you which ‘human feeling’ you are, and invite you to share it on social media. 

MailOnline’s Fiona Jackson got ‘true love’ after trying out the quiz.

The description of ‘true love’ read ‘you… wow. really, wow. definitely very strong and wonderful people. 

‘your loved ones are very lucky to have you, and you, too, you know, are huge smarties. 

‘probably sometime in your life something terrible happened, and you broke down, piece by piece picking yourself up. but I’m glad it’s okay now.’

Other social media users got results like ‘sadness’, ‘humility’ and ‘sincere love’.

One quiz taker tweeted: ‘I took the tiktok emotion quiz and got despondency and it’s upsettingly accurate’.

The description for their result reads: ‘Not far from humility but you still try to fight. And I’m proud of you. It hurts and very often you want to quit everything.

‘You have lost interest in life, you don’t want it to end, but also to keep it going. I keep my fingers crossed for you! Everything will surely work out.’

TikTok videos where users display their results are usually backed by a sped-up version of the song ‘In My Room’ by Chance Pena.

The hashtag has received over 515,000 views at time of writing, and the song has been used in over 328,000 videos.

Is it safe? 

The personality quiz only requires a user to input a name in order to start it, however there are still risks associated with accessing unfamiliar websites.

Cybersecurity advisor Jake Moore said: ‘Like with any website that requests data input, users should be cautious of what personal data they may give away. 

‘These sites may seem quite harmless and a bit of fun but they still scoop up data from the device such as browser used, device model but they could also potentially view your IP address. 

‘Unknown sites could also contain adverts that include spyware and other harmful content so it is best to err on the side of caution.

‘It’s advised to use a VPN – virtual private network – on sites you cannot verify and be mindful about what data you may give away voluntarily.’

An adblocker may help against accidentally downloading a virus or malware as, according to Moore, just clicking on an advert once can cause ‘device havoc’.

When inputted into website reputation checker URLVoid, the UQuiz domain was registered way back in 2008, and no scams have since been reported.

ELON MUSK WONDERS WHETHER TIKTOK IS DESTROYING CIVILISATION 

Elon Musk has taken to Twitter to ponder whether TikTok is destroying the world.

On Saturday the tech mogul tweeted ‘Is TikTok destroying civilisation? Some people think so.’

He followed it up with a second tweet saying ‘Or perhaps social media in general’.

During a video chat with employees at Twitter last Thursday, Musk, who agreed to buy the company for $44 billion (£35.9 billion) in April, brought up the short form video-sharing platform.

According to Insider, he said ‘It does a great job of making sure you’re not bored’ while explaining how he does not want Twitter to offer ‘boring’ content.

He agreed that the app has ‘honed the algorithm to be as engaging as possible’ and wishes to emulate that when he joins Twitter.

However he also wants to ensure it remains a platform that can keep users ‘informed about serious issues’ as well.
