If You Get Less Than 50% On This Mandela Effect Quiz, You’re Living In An Alternate Reality

Have you ever felt like people around you are somehow living in a different reality? You might not be that far off. The Mandela effect is a phenomenon that occurs when a large group in the population “misremembers” something collectively.

This means that false memories of a significant event or thing can be shared by multiple people who have somehow misinterpreted their reality. If you still can’t wrap your head around this, consider the Nelson Mandela example that influenced the name of the phenomenon.
