How Much of a Karen Are You?


Chances are, you've heard the term "Karen" to refer to a woman -- usually in a video -- fuming over what they perceive as inadequate service, unfair policies, or taking exception to cultural norms because, in their mind, they are above the rules. This woman will often shout and swear, and ultimately make everyone around her sad, angry, or both. Have you ever found yourself in a situation where wrong, but you knew you were in the right? How did you react? Did you throw a fit? Ask to speak to a manager? How much of a Karen are you? Let’s find out.

Did you know?

Where did "acting like a Karen" come from?

The term "Karen" sparked in popularity in 2020 right after Facebook blew up and destroyed the phrase "ok, boomer." While it might seem like a natural evolution, there's more to the story. Much of it started in 2017 with the term "Becky." Merriam-Webster defines a Becky as "a white woman who is ignorant of both her privilege and her prejudice." A Karen, according to The Root, is "a graduated Becky who's extremely aware of her privilege and weaponizes it." Does this mean every woman who's named Karen is inherently awful? Absolutely not. Should you be offended if someone calls you a Karen? Maybe. Then again, it might be worth taking a deep breath and checking in on yourself. Are you being overly hostile? Go for a walk. Read something on The Root. At the end of the day, we're living on a rock hurtling through space and time at incomprehensible speeds, and no matter what, we're all going to be inconvenienced from time to time. Deal with it.

How to Play?

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!
