About This Quiz

It's hard to imagine it now, but back when the first Harry Potter novel came out, the wizard-born boys made fun of the Muggle-born for having a poster on his wall with images that didn't move. Wizarding books and posters always moved, and as the movies later showed us, they tended to move in short repeating video-like loops. That's right: J.K. Rowling anticipated gifs years before we were all using them. After all, if a picture is worth a thousand words, a gif is worth a hundred thousand!

The gif - or graphic interchangeable format - was created at CompuServe by a team led by Steve Wilhite, and its current existence depends on animation invented by computing pioneer Lisa Gelobter. While gifs were not a big deal in early chatrooms and websites, they spread like wildfire as the internet's capacity to transmit data finally caught up with the creativity of its users. Nowadays they are an essential component of digital culture.

All this means that some gifs have become extremely famous and ubiquitous, from the former video (now gif) known as Dramatic Look Gopher to an endless array of llamas in sunglasses and octopi fleeing the scene. That's why, whatever you're feeling, there's a gif that represents it accurately - and whoever you are, there's probably a gif that gets across a pretty decent idea of that, too. Tell us a little about yourself, and we'll identify the perfect gif to represent your truest self!
