Friendship is one of the most important relationships in life. Friends are there for us when we need them, and they always have our backs. But not all friendships are created equal. Some friends are more loyal than others, and it’s important to know which friends you can count on in a crisis.
In this quiz, we’ll test your loyalty to see if you pass the five tests of a true friend. So put on your thinking cap, and get ready to answer some tough questions.
Take this quiz to see how loyal of a friend you really are.
Q1: How often do you bail on your friends?
- Almost always
Q2: How often do you go out of your way to help your friends?
- Almost always
If you answered ‘Almost always’ to both questions, then congratulations – you’re a loyal friend! If you answered anything else, keep reading for ways to be more reliable for the people who matter most in your life.
Test 1: The “Secrets” Test
Let’s start with a simple question: how would you feel if a friend of yours revealed your secrets to someone else? Betrayed, right? Well, then you’re definitely not a loyal friend.
In fact, if you can’t be trusted with your friends’ secrets, then you can’t be trusted with anything. You might as well wear a big sign around your neck that says “I cannot be trusted.”
So, how did you do on the first test? Were you able to keep your friend’s secrets confidential? If not, it might be time for a little self-reflection – and to start looking for some new friends.
Test 2: The “Your Pain Is My Pain” Test
Think you’re a loyal friend? Let’s put your loyalty to the test. The “Your Pain Is My Pain” Test is a simple way to determine how much you care about your friends.
Here’s how it works: when your friend is going through a tough time, do you feel their pain as if it’s your own? If you do, then congratulations – you’re a loyal friend! If not, well, maybe you need to work on that.
We all go through tough times, and it’s during these times that we need our friends the most. So make sure you pass the “Your Pain Is My Pain” Test – it could mean the difference between a friend and a foe.
Test 3: The “I’m Always Here for You” Test
The third of our five tests is the “I’m Always Here for You” Test. This one is pretty simple – all you have to do is ask yourself if you would be there for your friend in their time of need.
Would you drop everything and fly across the country to be there for them? Would you stay up all night talking to them on the phone? Would you lend them your last dollar even if you’re struggling yourself? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then congratulations, you’re a loyal friend!
Test 4: The “No Matter What” Test
If you can say “no matter what” about a friend, that means you’ll always be there for them – no matter what they do, no matter how much they screw up, and no matter how much they hurt you.
Sound like someone you can depend on? Answer these questions honestly and see how you stack up.
Test 5: The “Unconditional Love” Test
Let’s be honest: you know whether you’re a loyal friend or not. And if you’re not sure, these five tests should help clear things up for you.
So how do you fare on the “unconditional love” test? This test is all about whether you’re there for your friends no matter what – even when they’re being total jerks. In other words, are you there to love them no matter what, or do you bail when they start to suck?
If you answered yes to this question, then congratulations – you’re a loyal friend! On the other hand, if you answered no, then it might be time to re-evaluate your relationships. No one is perfect, after all.
No one is perfect, and that goes for friends too. But if you find that you repeatedly fail these five tests, it might be time to re-evaluate your friendship.
On the other hand, if you passed with flying colours, congratulations! You’re a loyal friend who is worth keeping around.
Thanks for taking the quiz!
