How Disgusting Are You?
I surveyed 423 people about their hygiene habits after repeatedly noticing thriving online discussions of mundane things like how often you change your bed sheets. The test compares you with the results, but it's largely just a way to browse the stats and make the point that we're all ‘disgusting’ in our own ways (almost everyone gets a fairly high score).

I found the wording of the conclusion a bit odd -- I am not necessarily disgusted by people who have different/worse hygiene habits than I do. I only wear pants at most twice before I wash them, but I don't think people who manage more wearings are disgusting.

Pretty sure they put that in there to make people like me feel better about ourselves.

No, it’s definitely disgusting to change your sheets less often than once per week.

I am disgusting.

Huh. I seemed pretty middle of the road when I saw each individual stat, but the how disgusting thing didn't seem to correlate to that at all.

I wish you’d do one on dental hygiene habits.

The real takeaway is that 87% of people are disgusted with themselves.

I think the main takeaway from this is that 74.2% of people who took this survey use their bath towel for a week or more at a time. Is that really a common thing?

Not gonna say what percentage of people would be disgusted by my habits per this measurement. I WILL say my percentage would have been even higher if you had asked the things I was afraid you were going to ask but didn't.
