Does A Friend/Someone I Know Cut Or Self-harm? - Quiz

A quiz with the purpose in mind of being aware about cutting and self harm. Does a friend or person you know secretly self harm? PLEASE NOTE: I do not claim that this quiz is set in stone, nor 100 percent accurate. This is just a brief estimation/guess quiz with a good purpose in mind.


You May Get

Yes - This person almost definitely Cuts or Self-Harms.

The person in question is almost positively secretly self-harming. Like I mentioned earlier - nothing is set in stone, and this may be wrong, but with this score it's highly likely that this person is self-harming. Make sure that you get solid evidence to confirm this, however, before you approach the person about it, or (Although I do not reccomend this (See www.cuttingawareness.webs.com for why I HIGHLY DO NOT RECCOMEND THIS BEFORE YOU TALK WITH THE PERSON) attempt to get this person help / tell another person (don't spread false rumors). Here are some good tests you can do to confirm this suspicion:  -Note: It's reccomended that, before you do any of these, you have a good friendship/relationship with the person. -Ask them to take off their hoodie/jacket if they are wearing one, say you are cold or act like you are playing a game and teasingly try to get it off them by slightly pulling on it (Do NOT pull it off however, unless they let you). Make a remark about how they never take off their hoodie/jacket and ask them why they always have it on. --If they: get flustered, and reply with an obvious lie, like "I don't know"' or "I'm always cold" And if they seem scared and refuse to take off their hoodie, especially if, when you ask why, they reply "I just...can't" or give a non definitive answer and seem incredibly uncomfortable and scared and hold on tightly to their hoodie / zip it back up. -Graze their arm -Lightly (forearm, upper arm...etc) "Accidentally". --If they: Wince, recoil, or grab their arm gently - ----Note: you should only brush up to them lightly - if there are no cuts/injuries it should not affect them at all. However, cuts are sensitive, and hurt expecially when they brush against something (like cloth) so if they display any kind of pained reaction (that they shouldn't because you didn't hit them hard) And other ways you can come up with yourself. Please Note: Asking someone up front if they cut / self-harm point blank will lead to the following reactions -A Lie -Them usually avoiding you -Them being more cautious and sneaky when they cut so no one will know
