Though popular are Internet tests in social networks, there are few researches explaining interest of people to the content such as this. The paper introduces the definition of the concept «popular Internet test», it also describes the results of the study of attitude of senior adolescents with different levels of reflexiveness to popular Internet tests. Credibility of Internet tests, their ease-of-use, and emotional satisfaction are major demands placed by senior adolescents on Internet tests. The level of reflexiveness and self-conception reveal peculiarities of adolescents’ attitude to Internet tests. Adolescents with high level of reflexiveness value informational potential of popular Internet tests higher, approaching them to fill the need in self-exploration, resolve intrapersonal conflicts, and address personal concerns.
