Test: How Long Would You Last Stranded on a Deserted Island?
Experts believe that survival quizzes train our brains and prepare us for possible unfortunate situations. Just imagine that you were on a ship, boat or plane and it got into an accident. You open your eyes and realize that you’re on an island all on your own. Do you think you could survive there? Let’s find out!
Bright Side has prepared this test for you. Instructions: Answer each question and sum up your points to see your results at the end.
1. Ok, you realized that this isn’t a nightmare, it’s a reality. You are on an island. What would be your first step?
2. You found bright red berries on a bush. What are you going to do?
3. You haven’t found a water source and are getting very thirsty. What would happen if you drank the ocean water?
4. What would be the best place for shelter?
5. You don’t know where you are and have no devices to contact the rest of the world. What should you do?
6. You decided not to wait any longer and build a raft to leave the island. What shape is most practical?
7. You go for a swim to cool down and get attacked by a shark. How should you defend yourself?
8. It’s so hot and you are getting very thirsty. You have heard about a solar still. What do you need for it?
9. Instead of wasting time and energy on building a solar still, you decide to drink your own urine. What would be the result of this action?
10. Water is a treasure in this sort of situation. On one hand, you need it to stay hydrated but on the other hand, you shouldn’t waste water. How much water on average does an adult need to consume in a day?
Now it’s time to find out if you have a chance to stay alive. Count how many points you’ve gotten and check what your status would be if you really were to get stuck on an island.
Unfortunately, your game would be over the first night! You desperately need to improve your survival skills.
You would stay alive for a few days with a very slim chance of survival. Let’s just hope this never really happens to you.
There’s a good chance that you’d manage to survive until help arrives! Well done, but there’s still a bit of room for improvement.
You could live forever on a deserted island — perhaps you already do! Have you ever thought about going on the show Survivor? With your skills, you’d have a great chance of walking away with the grand prize.
