What Do People Envy About You?


In this age of oversharing, we put everything good in our lives out there for everyone to see without a second thought. But all this carefully curated TMI-ing of our highlight reels means there's a good chance that someone, somewhere, is secretly wishing they had what you have. Enter envy. Nobody is immune from this ugly emotion, and it only intensifies when it's coming from a peer. Think about it: if you find out the person you eat lunch with every day got the promotion you wanted, you're going to wonder why you were passed over. Anything that makes you feel like your status is slipping while others are getting ahead can summon the green-eyed monster. You don't even have to be a humblebragger to inspire envy in others. The truth is, even the most modest person on earth has something going on in their lives that others secretly wish they had. Wondering what makes others envy you? You're about to find out!

Did you know?

There’s a difference between envy and jealousy

Although jealousy and envy are often used interchangeably, they mean very different things in different contexts. Envy is the feeling of lacking something, and it usually only involves two people. People feel envious when someone else has something they wish they had themselves, like a coveted possession or position at work. When someone says, “I wish I could just hop on a plane to Florida at the drop of a hat like Amy,” that’s envy. On the other hand, jealousy is about the fear of losing someone, and it tends to involve three people. The feeling usually creeps up when a relationship that’s important to someone is under threat. You might feel jealous when you catch your crush slow dancing with a mutual friend at a wedding, for example. You're envious of how attractive your crush finds your rival, but you’re jealous they seem to like them a lot more than you.

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!
