The test is by the health care app BetterMe. It’s a one-minute quiz that uses experiences from your upbringing to determine your emotional struggles. TikTokers are sharing their results, and many of them are shocked that their pasts weren’t as cracked up as they remember. The hashtag #childhoodtraumatest currently has 2.3 million views.

What is the ‘childhood trauma’ test on TikTok?

The BetterMe quiz asks questions about issues you might grapple with, like guilt, abandonment and mistrust. It asks questions like, “Do you remember yourself in childhood?” “Were you often punished in childhood?” and “Have you been slapped or spanked?”

The results assess things like abandonment, rejection, betrayal, injustice, anxiety, stress, frustration and focus levels. An email is required to access your test results. Once the test is completed, you can also opt for a 28-day childhood trauma plan.
