What your favourite meme says about you

By Cristina Paolozzi, June 11 2021—

As a result of the pandemic, many of us have found ourselves spending more time online, discovering new trends and keeping up with the latest memes. While scrolling through social media for hours on end, I’m sure there are a couple of memes you’ve connected with — perhaps a little too closely. Choosing from a list of newer and older memes, here are what some of them might say about you.

If this is your favourite meme, this could go one of two ways — you’re either very indecisive, or you’ve bumped into your doppelganger recently. The laws of time are tricky, so let’s hope it’s the first one. 

Doge: 

I hate to say it, but you might be a Disney adult. Either that, or you like Elon Musk a little too much.

Distracted Boyfriend:

Listen, you might be going through your quarter-life crisis right now, and that’s okay. There are always new opportunities coming your way that might seem even more appealing than the current path you’re already on. Even though you don’t have a plan, it’s pretty easy to get distracted by all of the things you could be doing right now.

I don’t know how long you’ve been here, but you need to get off of the internet.

You might tend to be a little stubborn. No matter who points a finger at you and yells in your face, you will continue to sit in your seat, happily enjoying your salad. After all, you did nothing wrong.

We all know it’s not. But that’s okay. 

The Dress:

You are way too into conspiracy theories, or you enjoy starting arguments for no reason at all. Whatever the case might be, your commitment to bringing people to your side of an argument is fascinating. By the way, the dress is totally blue and black.

You are a master procrastinator. If there is something you should be doing, you will be putting it off until the last minute and careening towards something totally irrelevant. Does this irrelevant activity instantly increase your serotonin levels? Of course. Are you just delaying the moment when you only have a limited amount of time to do the thing you actually need to do? Absolutely. You wouldn’t have it any other way. 

Hopefully, this list has allowed you not only to connect with some of the internet’s most popular memes, but to also learn a little more about yourself in the process.
