‘Little Miss’ quizzes go viral on TikTok collect your data

Little Miss and Mr Men memes have taken over the internet in recent weeks. The cartoonish designs of British author and illustrator Roger Hargreaves date back decades but have been revived for the 21st century. Think: Little Miss Doing The Most, Mr. Struggling Freelance Artist, or Little Miss Trauma Dumps on Close Friends Story.

So, of course, viral quizzes on TikTok are popping up.

Personality quizzes titled “What little miss do I think you are?” by user vickova and “what little miss character are you?” by imm6y have made the rounds on TikTok, both hosted by online quiz platform uQuiz. People shared their results, often using the hashtag #littlemissquiz. Users have also been tweet screenshots quizzes.

“We all love our little misses. Answer these random questions and I’ll tell you which ‘little miss’ I think you align the most with,” reads Vickova’s description on the quiz. Common responses seem to include “Little Miss Substance Abuse”, “Little Miss Self Sabotage”, and “Little Miss Mentally Ill”.
