New Quiz: Do you See the World as Just or Unjust?

Do you think the world is a fair place?

The more I learn about personal psychology, the more I learn we all don’t see the world the same way. I think this can account for a lot of differences and misunderstandings, especially in politics. One concept I was recently introduced to is the idea of a just world. Some people buy into it, and some people don’t. What about you? Do you think the world is a fair place?

Do you believe in a just world? Take my latest quiz to find out: Do You See the World as Just or Unjust? Let me know what you get and what you think of your result. When has the world been fair or unfair to you?

Should You Eat, Pray, or Love?

Are you still getting back to normal after the holidays? I know that I am having trouble getting back into my routine. I thought I would bounce right back this year after having a pretty chill holiday, but it’s proving more difficult than I thought. I even slept through the alarm today, which is very rare for me. Mr. Blogthings and I were both feeling a little under the weather during the holidays, and now it’s very cold here. Needless to say, I could use a pick me up 🙂

When I need a little emotional lift, I like to read an inspiring book or watch an inspiring movie. I think that Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert definitely fits in this category for sure. I know that not everyone liked this book or film, but most of us have at least heard of it… which makes it the perfect subject for a quiz! I like the broad theme of Eat Pray Love, which is all about self-discovery and taking a break from the drudgery of life. I’d like to think that I can find smaller ways of accomplishing that than uprooting myself for a year!

In the spirit of Eat Pray Love, I present a quiz that can help you figure out what little thing you can do to make yourself feel better. After all, we can all eat a nourishing meal, pray / meditate / journal, or show some love to someone. Which one should you do? Should you Eat, Pray, or Love? Let me know what you get, and if you think your result is a good fit!

Discussion question: Did you read Eat Pray Love or see the movie? What did you think of it?

What Kind of Ist Are You?

Do you have a life philosophy? I like to think that I do somewhat, but it’s difficult to put into words. I think a lot of us feel that way, although most life philosophies are of a few types 🙂

My latest quiz helps you figure out your view on life. Are you an idealist, a realist, a pragmatist, or an existentialist? Take this quiz to find out! What Kind of Ist Are You?

Discussion question: Is there a philosophy, philosopher, or even phrase that sums up how you try to live your life?

What’s Your Life Perspective?

I don’t think it’s controversial to say that we all view life from our own perspectives. The difficult thing can be figuring out what our perspective actually is sometimes 🙂 I think that’s the hardest part of having our own take on the world.

My latest quiz aims to help show you what your perspective is right now: What’s Your Life Perspective? Some may see this as a personality quiz, but I see it more of where you are right now. It may or may not be where you end up 🙂 Let me know what you get!

Discussion question: When was a time where you temporarily saw life from a different perspective?

New Quiz: Are You Yolo, Fomo, or Jomo?

How do you live your life?

Have you heard of YOLO? It’s pretty hard to avoid this acronym meaning “you only live once.” A lot of people don’t like the term, but I like the spirit of it… if not the current application. I think “you only live once” is a good thing to keep in mind, at least, if you believe it 🙂 Reminding yourself to have unforgettable experiences is important. And I always worry about regretting what I didn’t do.

Similar to YOLO is FOMO. That’s “fear of missing out.” I see this one as more of a mixed bag. I think it’s good not to miss out and get outside of one’s comfort zone. However, if all of your decisions are driven by fear of missing out, then it’s hard to know what you really want. I will totally cop to being a little too prone to have fear of missing out. As a result, I try to do too much and get tired. I also get a little jealous of people who get to have cool experiences 🙂

Something I learned about recently is JOMO – the “joy in missing out.” I thought this was a fun twist on these new motto acronyms and quite profound. There’s something quite peaceful about chilling out instead of going out. At least in moderate doses.

Thinking about YOLO, FOMO, and JOMO of course led me to write a quiz about it.  Are You Yolo, Fomo, or Jomo? Give it a whirl to see which of these mottos you most espouse.

Discussion topics (Comment below and let me know any or all of these):

  1. What do you get on Are You Yolo, Fomo, or Jomo? Is it true for you?
  2. What are you most afraid of missing out on (FOMO)?
  3. What are you happiest to miss out on (JOMO)?
  4. Do you embrace “you only live once” (YOMO) in any way?

P.S. Do you feel like you’re missing out too much on life due to budgetary constraints? I’ve so been there! Check out Swagbucks for easy opportunities to earn gift cards, simply for surfing the web. They’ve got Amazon, Sephora, Pay Pal, and more 🙂

Are You Peace, Love, Unity, or Respect?

Did you know that PLUR is the credo of rave culture? It stands for peace – love – unity – respect. I’m not a raver, but I thought that these concepts would be great to write a quiz around. I hope you enjoy it: Are You Peace, Love, Unity, or Respect?

What result did you get? Comment below and let me know what you thought of this quiz.
