From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "Emo (from Latin words "to buy, purchase", pronounced eeee-moe) is a type of subculture (rather distinctly from the 21st Century) loosely rooted around punk rock with its own distinct style of music, fashion, jargon and other trappings in a desperate, though ultimately hopeless attempt to pronounce their uniqueness. As a rule of thumb, a person described as "emo" (falling under certain behavior mannerisms and attire correlating with the subculture) will often be from a comfortable, middle-class background with understanding, pleasant parents. All of this is irrelevant to an emo who will consider themselves misunderstood and repressed regardless of reality. They all believe that their personal affliction could not be worse, that their life in their quiet suburban house with their own television and computer in their room is not just the worst life they could have, but the worst life anyone has had, ever."
You might be depressed, thinking about suicide, going goth or cutting yourself. If you are Emo, or cutting yourself, or thinking about suicide, it's best to talk to an adult. You may also be experiencing emotional issues. Not all Emo people are depressed.

Emo=Emotional. Not Goth or any other Dark spirited stereotype. it means you can have a variety of emotions. These do result in physical actions such as cutting, change of looks and even killing in some cases.
Honestly if your emo, you do not need people telling you, or going on quizzes to find out. If your emo, you'll just know. You'll feel deprest at times when you should feel happy, and they way you dress may cause a great attention to you because you'll dress in colors that seem dark to people. If your emo, you'll just know.
