QUIZ: Is It COVID Brain Fog or Are You Just Kind of Dumb?

With COVID cases on the rise, it can be hard to tell if you’re suffering from symptoms of the virus, or if you just forgot to drink coffee this morning or something really weird like that. If you’re unsure and concerned about your health, then take the quiz below to find out whether you’re experiencing COVID brain fog, or if you’re just kind of dumb.


Are you having trouble getting from one thought to the next?

  1. Yes.
  2. I haven’t really been thinking anything at all, actually.


Are you experiencing any other symptoms, such as fever, chills, cough, fatigue, aches, headache, loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion, vomiting or diarrhea?

  1. Unfortunately, yes.
  2. I have a sore throat, but it might be from the bong rip I just took.


When’s the last time you read a full book?

  1. Probably around a month ago.
  2. A full book? Probably freshman year of high school. Well actually, no. Not then either.


If we asked you to tell us three movies Saoirse Ronan has been in, how long would it take you to respond?

  1. Oh my god I have no idea right now. I’d need at least like 30 minutes.
  2. Lady Bird, Atonement, and obviously Little Women. How long was that?


How often have you found yourself forgetting what you were just doing?

  1. All the time today.
  2. I haven’t really done anything yet – I’ve been scrolling on my phone since I woke up.




Mostly 1s: If you haven’t already done so, you should get tested right away. We’re no doctor, but it looks like you’re showing clear signs of COVID brain fog. Hang in there, and remember to stay safe!

Mostly 2s: Sorry, but it looks like you’re just kind of dumb. Congrats on not having COVID, though! You might also wanna try some brain games like Wordle or the NYT Mini Crossword so you can have more thoughts!
