Are you a leader?

Are you a leader?

Born Leader

You are talented, confident, and capable. You have excellent communication skills. You know how to delegate. You persevere against all odds. Above all, you are naturally charismatic – and as a result you are able to inspire others to achieve great things.

Hmm, this isn’t the real me, but maybe one to aspire to?


Friday’s answers

September 19, 2014

Thursday’s questions were:

1. Who said:  “The people who cast the votes don’t decide an election, the people who count the votes do.” ?

2.  Who was the woman who led the campaign for women’s suffrage in New Zealand?

3. It’s élire in French;  eleggere in Italian; elegir in Spanish and whiriwhiri in Maori, what is it in English?

4. Who was the first Maori to win a general electorate?

5. If you could choose anyone – living or not – as Prime Minister now who would it be?

Points for answers:

Andrei gets three, a smile for #5 and a bonus for extra information.

Gravedodger gets four and a me-too for #5.

Alwyn wins a jelly sponge for five right (taking into account you’re allowed to differ with me on #5).

Answers follow the break:

How open-minded are you?

September 13, 2014

How open-minded are you?

You are 85% open-minded:

You are a very open-minded person who is willing to take the time to consider an issue from multiple perspectives. You show great empathy for other people but gently reject their more dogmatic assertions. Some of your friends probably admire you for being so open-minded, while others feel you may just be lost…       

   This may be a little more generous than reality.


Which jewel are you?

Which jewel are you?

Ruby

Oh my dear ruby, you are a rarity in this world: proud of the things that make you different, you are confident and self-assured. You’re not afraid to admit when you’re wrong. You often make people laugh with your honesty and impulsivity.

Do rubies come in blue?

Andrei and J Bloggs provided the questions and both win an electronic batch of shortbread for stumping us all.

It can be collected by leaving the answers here.

Robert gets a deletion for abusing the spirit of the quiz and a warning – you gave your word you’d stick by my rules of no spam or off-topic comments, if you want to stay off moderation that includes adhering to the spirit of posts.
