Bloodlust Test – How Bloodlust Are You?


Take this Bloodlust Test to find out how bloodlust you are. We update the quiz regularly and it’s the most accurate among the other quizzes.

Despite several stories claiming bloodlust — a violent reaction to the sight, smell, or taste of blood – there is no evidence for this occurrence.

Where do these stories originate? In my investigation, I discovered three explanations.

The mystical idea is that blood is a medium via which we can communicate with the supernatural realm and through which demons can drive us insane.
Bloodlust is a “prehistoric” residue of human struggle for existence in a violent past, according to the “evolutionary” theory.
The aesthetic perspective is that pleasure can be acquired from what is objectively unpleasant and frightening.
These cultural ideas continue to inspire the notion of bloodlust to the present day, but why?

Can humans detect the odor of blood, and does this odor make us aggressive?
In a series of tests, we asked people to distinguish between blood and red control liquids in a variety of conditions. While we are very good at detecting pig blood, our ability to recognize human blood is far less developed.

Differences in sense of smell and personal familiarity with blood, by the way, had no effect on blood detection. Also, you must try to play this Bloodlust Test.

Given that we were poor blood detectors, we might assume that smelling human blood did not arouse our combativeness in an aggressive situation.

In a subsequent trial, we confirmed that sniffing real blood, fake blood, or plain water while playing a violent computer game had no significant effect on the players’ heart rate, skin conductance, or breathing rate.

When we told the gamers that certain “pheromones” were dissolved in the blood, their skin conductance and gaming scores plummeted, regardless of whether they smelled actual human blood, film blood, or water.

This data shows that blood contact, or, more precisely, our mental representation of blood, suppresses rather than enhances sensations of excitement, aggression, or fury.

Why should you watch BBC Science Focus?
Recent research has shown that E2D, a mammalian blood scent component that we perceive as the usual “metallic” blood fragrance quality, serves as an alarm cue in humans, warning of imminent danger.

Subjects tended to tilt backward on an approach/avoidance test after inhaling two long puffs of this chemical cue. Humans, unlike predators such as wolves and tigers, do not appear to be attracted to E2D-odours.

About the quiz

Despite the fact that participants did not identify the inhaled chemicals with blood, E2D causes a flight rather than a fight reaction.

The low percentage of E2D in human blood most likely explains why we were unable to detect human blood in our initial experiment.

The concept that menstrual blood is harmful is unquestionably at the top of the list of blood-related myths.

Most people dismiss this foolishness, but what is less well known is how this dubious theory captivated so many serious scientists over the last century.

Dozens of researchers hoped to discover the enigmatic “menotoxins” responsible for the failure of ham to cure, dough to rise, flowers and plants to grow, and even pictures to develop.

Even as late as 1975, one researcher remained upbeat, stating that “the idea that menstruation women can, in certain situations, have a detrimental effect on living organisms cannot be ignored.”

Menstrual blood could not be ordinary blood — a chemical substance that obeyed nature’s laws – but instead carried a special enchantment, no matter how dangerous it could be.
