We've all been there. You wake up on a Saturday morning, drained from the week's work, glad it's finally over. You roll out of bed and take a look at yourself in the mirror. No makeup, no clothes — just you. For some of us, this situation spells fear and self-deprecation, while a small minority of us check ourselves out, proud of how we look. That second group? That's probably a myth. What isn't a myth is that on some level, we all desire to be desirable, and this desire has only grown in intensity in the social media age. It's important to know, however, that beauty standards shift and change over time; what society finds "pretty" was vastly different in the 1960s, not to mention the 1860s. Do you fit the contemporary beauty standard, or are you unique in that regard? Give this quiz a try, but remember: true beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

It's easy to become stuck in a beauty bubble, believing that your regional standards are the litmus test for all others. Beauty is, however, entirely changeable, depending on both when and where it is being perceived. For example, the Muri or Suri women of Ethiopia remove two of their lower front teeth and insert large disks, which to their people is the height of beauty. For many in the west, a good tan is a mark of beauty, but in many Asian countries, women and men keep themselves out of the sun as much as possible in pursuit of a porcelain complexion. In many modern and ancient cultures, being overweight was a sign of prosperity — you have enough money to eat as much food as you like — so larger men and women were considered the most attractive. Whatever the current beauty standard, remember: it is always subject to change.
Our personality quizzes are set up a little differently than your basic trivia quiz, but you’ve probably seen their kind around. Rather than having to choose the right answer from a list of multiple choice options, in this case, there is no “right answer”! (Two plus two will always be four, but every Golden Girls character is equally awesome.)
So, stop stressing. Just click on the answer that suits you best, and enjoy the ride. These quizzes are just for fun but who knows – you might just learn something about yourself along the way!
