If you have been on social media websites for a long time, then you are probably aware of the different phases all of us had. In the initial days, taking quizzes and playing games used to be the hottest trend. Now a lot of us have taken a ton of quizzes which is completely fine and actually a fun activity to do. So make sure you are doing something about those.
There are plenty of quizzes that you could potentially take but most people tend to not realize as to why they are so addictive. If you are someone who wants to know about them, then we would like to tell you about them. With that being said, please keep this in mind that there is nothing harmful about wanting to get entertained online. Following are some of the reasons as to why people often like taking online quizzes, check them out below.
It is Human Nature to Want to Talk About Yourself
Harvard did a research study to find out whether people like talking about themselves. They did a bunch of tests and studies comparing the results. Through each study the results signified that people in fact like talking about themselves. So when we find a good quiz i.e. one that asks us to reveal something about ourselves and preferences it tends to trigger a chemical reaction in brain resulting in us feeling good. That is one major reason as to why we take online quizzes so often. This all makes sense because these quizzes are also an acceptable method for us to talk about our preferences without sounding too narcissistic or self-centered which in turn leads us to our addiction with taking quizzes.
