What the results say about you as a couple.

Here's an idea of what the results might mean about your relationship:

  • 30 or fewer correct: Hey, don't worry. Odds are you haven't been together that long or just haven't prioritized some of these bigger conversational topics. You definitely have room to get to know each other better—and that's exciting! Time to start digging in.
  • 30 to 40 correct: You know plenty about your partner, but there's still more to find out as your connection deepens.
  • 40 to 55 correct: You know your partner like the back of your hand, and that's great! You've probably been together for a while, or you just really prioritize conversation and curiosity with each other.

As licensed marriage and family therapist and sex therapist Holly Richmond, Ph. D., LMFT, CST, tells mbg, you're usually going to do better on this quiz the longer you've been together. Don't fret if you didn't do as well as you may have liked to—this just means you can make getting to know each other better a bigger priority.

Ways to get to know each other better if you're not content with your results.

According to therapist and relationship expert Ken Page, LCSW, quizzes like this are fun, of course, but having a daily practice of checking in with each other is "a really wonderful thing to do." He recommends finding time for each other every day and thinking of a thoughtful question or two that can help you both root in your connectedness—whether something from this list or something you come up with on your own.

Page is also a fan of the 36 questions to fall in love, developed in the 1990s by psychologists Arthur Aron, Ph.D.; Elaine Aron, Ph.D.; and other researchers. This set of questions has been found, on many an occasion, to cultivate intimacy and connection between strangers—so it certainly couldn't hurt to cover those questions, Page says.

In addition to that, Richmond suggests simply getting curious with each other on a regular basis. "Sit down at least once a week, where you have each other's undivided attention, with eye contact, and you aren't distracted." Ask each other questions, have genuine curiosity for each other, and just enjoy the process of getting to know each other. (Here are some conversation starters for couples to get you started.)

Whether you aced this quiz or there's still more to learn, the bottom line is, it's important to understand who we're with. When we take time to consciously learn about our partner, not only do we see them more and more as they truly are, but we give them the gift of being seen and understood.

Inappropriate quiz

A quiz dedicated to the defense of Moscow was held in one of the Moscow schools. However, in our time, the linguistic construction "at school" does not necessarily mean a spatial location. The quiz was held on the school's Instagram account.

The event went beyond the school walls and was supported by the Metropolitan Department of Education. Which is not surprising: now there is a lot of talk about the return to schools of patriotic education. There are plans and reports in this area, and the quiz on the topic of the Great Patriotic War fits perfectly into the required statistics. School “for activity” gets points that are taken into account in the current system of motivation and eventually somehow flow into money. Even other schools, if their students join the event, will receive significant benefits. nine0007

The quiz was dedicated to the events of December 5, 1941. Then, 80 years ago, the offensive of the Soviet troops began, pushing the Nazis back from Moscow. The enemy came close - only 25 km remained to the capital, and to survive that winter was, without exaggeration, a feat. The years take their toll, and the war slowly fell out of the actual memory of the people, turning into dry chapters in a history textbook. To revive that time, to open it anew for a child, so that he sees his compatriots in a moment of terrible trial and tries to recognize himself in them, is a good thing. But, turning to something lofty, our contemporary must be especially vigilant and crush the postmodernist in himself, who is trying to come to the fore and solve the problem in his own way. nine0007

It seems that the right words were said on the page of the school website dedicated to the quiz: “ these days we again remembered that war. But not in order to hate those who brought death and suffering to our land, but to always remember those who did everything so that we, who live now, could laugh and cry, rejoice and grieve, study and work, and just live. ! ". However, it seems that the authors of the quiz were somehow too preoccupied with avoiding relapses of hatred, and moved as far as possible from the main thing that our compatriots lived and breathed then - from the battle with the enemy itself. Despite the fact that our counteroffensive was chosen as the reason for the event, there was not a single question about what happened at the front in the quiz. The focus of attention has been shifted entirely to the rear. But I must say that the life of the home front is presented in it rather strangely - with “edges”, some details, tugged at without any system. nine0007

The quiz consisted of five questions. Two of them look quite decent. The first - “Zinaida Petrovna Troitskaya - a participant in the defense of Moscow. What is she famous for? (the correct answer is the first female driver in Russia). And the second - “The inhabitants of Moscow dug so-called“ cracks ”in the courtyards of houses - long trenches. What were they for?" Another question is clear how it got into the quiz - he asked "children's flavor": "Where in besieged Moscow were Christmas trees for children?" Is it possible to call the military situation 1941 years of siege around the capital is a separate issue. Careless handling of concepts is reprehensible, but in this quiz - this is far from the main problem. Speaking essentially, holding Christmas trees in wartime conditions is an interesting touch, but when there are only five questions, giving one of them “for Christmas trees” is wasteful. If you dig deeper, then, of course, New Year trees are evidence of a feat: in conditions of anxiety and deprivation, Muscovites have the strength and time to organize a children's holiday. Even under the bombings, they are trying to save at least a piece of childhood for children. But does a modern child catch this moment, for whom the Christmas tree is a kind of constant, an invariable attribute of the New Year? Even though they moved the Christmas trees somewhere deeper, they could not have been missing ... The very wording of the question creates the following feeling: the option of the absence of children's holidays is not expected. nine0007

In general, the quiz as a method has a significant drawback: you have to choose the correct answer from those offered. And this means that the organizers of the quiz need to offer several ready-made answers, each of which could seem suitable. In some cases, the correct answer sounds like a clear note, and against its background, alternative answers look far-fetched. For example, to the question about the trenches-"slots" that Muscovites dug in the yards, the following answers were offered: for defensive battles in the event of a breakthrough by the Nazis; for mining Moscow; for storing food in the winter - it is obvious even to a schoolboy that none of them can be right. nine0007

The other extreme are questions, the answer to which is deliberately random. This is another question of the quiz: “The first fireworks in Moscow thundered on August 5, 1943. How many hours were given for its preparation? The correct answer is 5 hours. Is it a lot or a little? Why is it important for a child to know how much time it took to prepare a salute? Why is this more important than, for example, what the salute was given in honor of?

However, all these bewilderments could be considered nit-picking, if not for the fifth question: “Why were fines imposed on the residents of Moscow in the evening in the fall of 1941 years? Answer options: “for walking under the moon”, “for going out without a dog”, “for any uncovered light source from the apartment”, “for visiting a public place without a mask and gloves”.

Someone obviously wanted to joke. Perhaps he was weary of having to come up with this quiz. Perhaps he sought to reduce pathos, to do something less formal, more like a game. But there are things that are not joked about. There are topics in which pathos is appropriate and its reduction looks like profanity, and even blasphemy. The quiz turned out to be an anti-pedagogical act, educating schoolchildren to talk about the war with stupid giggles and almost with a scornful grin. nine0007

But that's not surprising. There is a postmodern person in each of us who can suddenly arrange a performance, starting to juggle with words and concepts that, in theory, should have weight and undoubted value. Anyone can carry. It is surprising not that such a quiz was made, but that it was given a go. It has received approval at the school level and informational support at the level of the Department of Education.

There are two possible explanations, and both are bad. The first is that the people responsible for the educational work through which this quiz went through are hardened postmodernists themselves (they read the answers, laughed at them and found them suitable). If so, who can they raise from our children? The second explanation is that the event was done solely for show (as the people say - "fuck off"). No one was seriously interested in what they would ask the children about the quality of all this material. I managed to fit it to the theme of the battle for Moscow - and it's wonderful. Participation was credited to everyone, the coefficients by which their work is evaluated have grown. The process is important, but no one cares about the real result. So in this case, there is no need to talk about normal upbringing. It is not even known which of these two options is worse; the third is probably not. nine0007
