Buzzfeed “quizzes” suck

They aren’t quizzes! A quiz tests your knowledge, preferably your useless knowledge. Buzzfeed and its ilk have some of those, but most of the “quizzes” I see don’t ask, “What do you know?”. Rather, they ask, “What are you?”.

Upon completing these, I will know how much I know about television, but mostly some person’s arbitrary opinion of aspects of my personality over which I have most definitely spent many hours brooding.

SO WHEN YOU CALL THEM “QUIZZES” YOU ARE ACTUALLY REFERRING TO THE PHENOMENON KNOWN AS “PERSONALITY TESTS” AND YOU SHOULD FEEL BAD FOR YOUR BLATANT MISREPRESENTATION I DON’T CARE IF MY ZODIAC SIGN SAYS THAT I SHOULD DATE CINDERELLA IN UZBEKISTAN WHILE EATING BUFFALO CHICKEN PIZZA AND GETTING SORTED INTO HUFFLEPUFF THAT IS JUST ARBITRARY AND STUPID AND GLORIFIED HOROSCOPING AT LEAST YOU COULD HAVE THE DECENCY TO CREATE A SEPARATE SECTION FOR GENUINE QUIZZES GRARGLE GRARGLE GRAR.

Buzzfeed “quizzes” suck. They are killing America.
