  1. Wow the creepy room decor question did not need to go so hard, those were all such good/horrible options and it was impossible to choose just one! (I did end up going with the suspiciously blank one eventually though)

    Also I got “Finally Meeting a Celebrity You’ve Admired All Your Life and Saying Something Unforgivably Awkward” which definitely tracks

  2. So, a while back Ro’s quiz told me my gender is the void. Now Nicole’s quiz is saying that my greatest fear is the call of the void. There’s clearly something for me to sort through there 🤔 🤣

  3. I thought i was going to get something else, but instead I got “small talk”. Which… yes, it’s always been a landmine for me haha

    …what’s up with that room with photos of you and your relatives anyway, that gave me a shudder!

  4. This quiz was spot-on about my fear of small talk…and I see I’m in good company in that regard.

    By the way, I really appreciate that “Tea, please” was an option for the question about coffee!

  5. There are many fears within each of us. It is important to remember that you are not alone and deal with it. Work on them more often, this will allow you to make your own features out of them. If you like various personality tests, I advise you to try this one https://psyculator.com/ as well. It will really be helpful
