Were You A Spoiled Child? Take This Quiz To Find Out

Let Our Expert Quiz Confirm It For You

Let's face it: no one wants to admit that they were spoiled as a kid. The word brings to mind the prissy, repugnant kids from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, who eventually find themselves whisked up pipes filled with chocolate, stretched out in the taffy machine, or worse. People expect stomping feet, flushed cheeks and screaming tantrums, finished off by demands for a new diamond bracelet, a brand new phone, the latest games console or an adorable Shetland pony. (They're just so small!)

However, despite appearing in movies and TV shows over and over again, that stereotype is more fiction than fact. Growing up spoiled is often just a sign of parents who both seriously love their kids and have the means to show that off - in elaborate and sometimes excessive ways. Usually, they don't even realise that they're doing it, just as the kid themselves don't realise that the way they're growing up isn't totally normal. Oh, how the other half lives!

With that said, if you did grow up spoiled it's probably better that you know about it, so you can use your powers of inherited wealth and lack of childhood trauma for good and not for evil. What's the best way to find out? You take this quiz, of course!

Answer these questions and we'll soon figure out if you were living the high life, the hard-knock life, or something in the middle as a kid. If you're doing this quiz on the latest iPhone that your parents bought you while being fed grapes on a tropical beach... well, you might be able to predict the results already.

About Go Social

Founded in 2016, Go Social started small. Beginning as a blog posting on 80s and 90s life as well as the movies, music and television of the era, Eighties Kids has in a short space of time exploded in scope and ambition. Operating out of Eighties Kids HQ in sunny Ilkley, in the North of England, today a growing team of writers produces original content day in and day out for one of the best new nostalgia sites on the web.

With the site also growing beyond its original remit, the Go Social team now covers not just trivia from the 80s and 90s, but pop culture of all decades that’s of interest to children of the 80s, 90s and beyond. From shocking and obscure fact posts on your favourite movies and bands, to quizzes on classic TV shows and film franchises, to picture galleries on celebrities from past and present, Eighties Kids is here to take you down memory lane, test your knowledge of classic pop culture and maybe even occasionally blow your mind.

How to Play

Go Social quizzes are easy to play, if not always so easy to beat. Beneath each question is a set of four possible answers, with only one of them being the right one. Click on the correct answer, and your choice will light up green. Click on the wrong one, and your choice will be highlighted in red, while the correct answer will be highlighted green.

Answering a question, correctly or otherwise, will allow you to progress to the next one; just scroll down and you’ll see another question light up and become playable. Keep in mind though: all correct and incorrect answers will be tallied for a final score, which will be revealed to you only once you’ve answered each and every question in the quiz. Play down the page to the end to find out just how knowledgeable you are in your chosen subject.
