Some people are fun. Some people are boring. But being boring is not a great attribute to have as a PRO, so it’s important to keep a check on your day-to-day drearyness. Your colleague may not be slumped over his desk due to exhaustion, maybe you have bored him to death.
So take this quiz to check that you still have a life.
1. How many hours of TV entertainment do you watch a week? And no, news doesn’t count!
a) TV shows? They are for losers! I’m at the office doing stuff.
b) At least two hours a day. Maybe more if there’s a documentary on trains.
c) I’ll watch an hour or so if I’m in, but I’m often out partying.
2. Who do you spend most time talking to, apart from colleagues?
a) The office cleaners are always asking me to move my feet.
b) There is a nice crowd at the bridge club.
c) Friends and family.
3. What do you do to relax at weekends?
a) There’s usually a report I can work on, or some press releases to fine tune on my laptop.
b) Ooh where can I begin? Waxing the car, adding stamps to my collection, or maybe watching a boxset (did I mention my fascination with trains?).
c) Sport (watching and doing), socialising, shopping and wining and dining.
4. How many friends do you have?
a) Thousands of virtual friends, on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. Shame I never get to see any of them.
b) Ten, if you include the family.
c) There are about 20 on the A list, 50 on the B list, 50 on the C list …
5. Do you like to gossip?
a) I don’t have time for any more of this nonsense, I’ll ask one of my minions to finish this quiz for me.
b) I believe that if you don’t having anything nice to say about anyone, you should keep quiet.
c) If you don’t have anything nice to say about anyone, I‘d love to talk to you!
Mostly As: You are a complete work bore. Mostly Bs: You are just a complete bore. Mostly Cs: You are entertaining, interesting and captivating, can we meet up?
