Quiz: Are you gross?

Updated on September 24, 2014

How Gross Are You? Get the actual stats!

Ever wonder if you are gross? or rather how gross you are? Compare your results to what others have said to determine exactly how gross you are, statistically.

Everyone has bad habits. You can't deny them to yourself. But are YOUR disgusting habits on par with other people's? Are you statistically more gross than most? Or are you, in fact, very little gross?

After all, it's best to know either way, isn't it?

      I had to visit here when I saw the title. Now do you really think people are going to admit if they are gross? That would be gross.

      I scored 20% I guess I'm prone to occasional moments of grossness. My OCD takes care of the rest.

      Funny lens! Amazing that you never stop to think about how gross you may be until you're forced to take a look at specifics. Although I think you tended to cover all of mine (at least I hope that's all!), there's no shortage of bad/gross habits out there...but I guess to each, his own! :)

      Wow, I barely scored in the Tendencies for Mild Grossness at 13%...hmmm, to improve my score I wonder where I should start first? Wearing the same clothes before and after a shower might work - but only if I put them on just before I showered. I could take lessons from my son and start scratching in public ~ and how convenient, I'd have a mentor with that one. Maybe the underwear thing, but I have enough undies to change every day for about a month and I'd hate for them to go to waste. I'm surprised the gross quiz didn't include any disgusting eating habits: mouth open, piling your plate 6" high with food at a buffet, spitting food while you talk ~ although they wouldn't have helped my score any. One time I did laugh and shoot milk out my nose...I was about 13 though, so maybe that one expired. I'll keep trying! I did laugh at this and the videos were horrifying, so you scaled a 15 out of 15 on the scare me scale! :)
