I know most of you will have read or seen something like this before, but I love what I learn from doing some thinking about the difference between the two quizzes.

QUIZ # 1

  1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world. (Extra points for spelling names correctly).
  2. Name the last five Heisman Trophy winners. (Extra points if you know what the Heisman Trophy is).
  3. Name ten of the people who have been featured on the cover of People Magazine in the past 3 months.
  4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize. (Alternate: Name the last five winners of the TV reality show “Survivor”).
  5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress. (Extra points if you can name the last ten “Best Picture” awards).
  6. Name the ten most popular websites on the internet. (Extra points for ten most popular YouTube sites).
  7. Name the ten most popular websites on the internet. (Extra points for ten most popular YouTube sites).
  8. Name the last five winners of the Miss America contest. (Double points if you can name the last five winners of the Miss Universe contest).
  9. Name the ten most influential current political leaders in the world.
  10. Name the last decade’s worth of World Series winners. (Extra points for naming the last decade’s worth of Super Bowl winners).

HOW DID YOU DO? Some of you probably scored a LOT higher than I did. For most of us, the point is that we don’t remember too much about people who are in the headlines – who are celebrities or “winners” or just plain popular.

Now try QUIZ # 2

  1. List a few teachers who were especially helpful to you during your first 12 years of school.
  2. Name three friends who have helped you through some of the “deep waters” and “fiery trials” of your life.
  3. Name five people who have taught you something which has made a significant difference in your life.
  4. Think of three people who have believed in you – who have made you feel like you were worthwhile and important.
  5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
  6. Name five or six people whose stories/lives have inspired you – people whom you consider to be heroes.
  7. List five people whom you consider to be absolutely honest – people of integrity and personal honor.
  8. Think of five people whom you trust completely.
  9. Name three friends whom you have known for at least 25 years (10 or 15 years if you’re only 20 or younger) who have kept in touch with you.
  10. List 5-10 people whom you have never met but whom you would love to have known because of their influence on you even without ever having been with you physically.

HOW DID YOU DO WITH THIS QUIZ?  It seems to me that those who have made the most difference in my life (and maybe it’s the same for some of you) are those who CARED (and/or still care!). This is just “food for thought.” Nothing scientific … and you could likely think of better questions … but I hope it’s been at least a little bit thought-provoking. HAPPY WEDNESDAY!!!
