The power of Buzzfeed quizzes

Buzzfeed quizzes are an amazing invention that aid procrastination. As a Buzzfeed enthusiast, it’s time to join them. (photo courtesy: Regan Harsa)

Okay, let’s get one thing straight: Buzzfeed quizzes are addicting. But why? The quizzes are pointless, yet we can become addicted and enter a long cycle of taking quiz after quiz after quiz.

This got me to thinking (surprising right?): Do these quizzes play into our need for instant gratification and narcissistic tendencies?

When taking quizzes on what type of Disney princess, Marvel super hero, or person you are, the outcome tends to build up one’s ego. Why do we tend to believe or accept as truth that we are “Mulan” based on our dessert preferences?

The answer: pure entertainment and the good feeling the quizzes generate (heck yeah, I am Spiderman).

As a senior, procrastination has become my best friend. Thanks to Buzzfeed, procrastination becomes even more inevitable.

Do you know what? I’ve paid my dues. I’ve been here for four years, and it’s time and okay to let senioritis kick in a little bit and how does the saying go, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” Therefore, I am creating my own quiz.
