The first question asks how you feel about your parents and whether they've done too much or too little to shape the person you are today. The questions get exceedingly random as the quiz goes on, such as what kind of phone case you have (OtterBox for the win) and what you need to do before you die.

After you finish the 10-question quiz, you will see your results. Some red flags results include gatekeeping, self-obsession, constantly disrespecting others, being emotionally unresponsive, or being a manipulative individual. Yikes, this is surprisingly heavy. Hopefully, you aren't too upset about your red flags.
