engaging in technographics

ahhh... posting this brings me back to my middle school livejournal days.
i wonder whatever happened to those "which icon are you?" quizzes. some were hella funny. anyway, so there's the "badge of honor" and the links are here and here.

it's times like these that i reflect on quizzes.

why do i post that? do i find it relevant or accurate to how i perceive myself? yes, actually. i'm big on creating. i hate inactivity (score of 0!) and everything else i like to take in at a balance. if i didn't find it somehow accurate, i wouldn't repost it. i suppose that's a given.

the only reason i don't outright resent that quiz for asking me about being a bride or having children is that if i click the radio button for "male" it asks me the same thing. kudos for that. extra kudos for referencing Lincoln Logs. i miss those. sad face for stereotypical questions, but i should know better than to hope.

Hey Girl Riot:

Thanks for (kinda) liking the quiz. Glad you noticed the non-gender biased questions. I added the male or female question because Forrester places importance on gender's relation to technographics.

Sorry you found the questions stereotypical; they were meant to be fun and a little educational.

i did find them fun to be sure, otherwise I wouldn't have finished the quiz or linked to it. the "usual questions" were made up for with references to Lincoln Logs and Sharks on a Submarine, heh, which were appreciated. kudos are assuredly given.
