Day 52: Zebra Stripes
I was thinking a lot today about how much I love quizzes and any sort of questions that seem unusual or out of the ordinary. I am totally a sucker for those email quizzes that people used to send around when I was in high school. Now people send them on Facebook, and I'm still a sucker for them there. To be honest, a lot of the time I will do the quiz even if I don't send it to anyone after or post it in my Facebook notes.
Top Ten Things About Yourself - yes, please!
You Life According to iTunes- oh, can I?!
Every Detail About Your Boring Life, Ever - sign me up!
I suppose I've always been interested in finding out more things about myself. Or maybe I'm just narcissistic enough that I like to read my own answers -- especially when they're witty! Or possibly it all stems from when I was a teenager and there were those ads in magazines like 'Seventeen' that were for American Express credit cards. They would ask a famous person about 5 questions, generally really random and unusual ones. It looked like the answers were in their actual writing. I used to write out what my answers would be to the same questions because I thought it was fun.
Perhaps this is one of the reasons I'm going into Human Resources. In this field I get to create interview questions. And since I'm creating them I should have an idea of what a good answer would look like. I find it all very fascinating just how different people are and how differently we can each take the same question.
If you ever come across a really fun and interesting quiz, send it my way! I'll totally do it, even if you don't know!
