Quiz: Do You Have Savior Syndrome?

Life can sometimes be complicated, and we must make it a point to lend a helping hand to others whenever we can. As we extend our help, we make the burden of others lighter. Interestingly, some people are obsessed with helping others or helping fix the lives of people around them. 

This obsession isn't from the genuine concern for others but as a coping mechanism and a measure of validation. This, however, is quite unhealthy as such people go to great lengths and make unnecessary and costly sacrifices to get the approval of others and to make them feel good about themselves. Do you have savior syndrome? Let's find out with this quiz.
