This is a thread to share and discuss online quizzes.

Let's start with these:
How Conservative Are You?

What Is Your Mennonite Marriageability Rating?

I grew up around Indiana, You grew up around Galilee; And if I ever really do grow up, I wanna grow up to be just like You -- Rich Mullins

I am a Christian and my name is Pilgram; I'm on a journey, but I'm not alone -- NewSong

A few online quizzes are serious, it seems. Many seem designed to flatter the quiz taker; then we want to share them. Some are just for humor and some are for education or spreading a viewpoint. I'm amused by many; I took a graduate level course in Personnel Tests and Measurement ages ago. Very few would be considered valid.

The Bonnet quiz was humor. I came out Liberal. That's accurate in some ways.

The marriageability "quiz" pointed out some interesting, if unverified sociological factors. I scored -7. I've been happily married for 34 years but it didn't ask if someone was currently married.

I had to finagle a bit to get Liberal rather than Secular. :shock:

My score was 28. I wonder if that means I'll marry before the originator of the quiz. 8-)

You make me feel a bit better. OJ. I took came out as secular on my first time through. :shock:

As to the second. Let us just say my score was almost embarrassingly high. Where was this survey when I needed it in my early 20's?. :D

I managed to get a 100 on the marriageability... that proves it dreadfully inaccurate :rofl:

As far as the somewhat tongue-in-cheek marriageability quiz (authored by one we knew as Stoltz13 on the MD board) goes, a higher rating means one makes a better conservative Mennonite and therefore better marriage material. At the end we find this:
However, I’m guessing that you will be more successful trying to find a person at your eligibility rating level.

With all the discussion recently about refugees and immigration, here's a quiz that purports to answer the question "Where should I live?"

It says I should live in France. Other than the TGVs, though, I'm not particularly impressed with France. The branch of my family tree that pulled up roots 200 years ago and moved here made the right choice, I think.

My marriageability was a cool zero - been with my girl for over fifty years - don't really care about marriageability at this point.

On the "how Conservative are you" I scored 335 - I like to think I am a moderate. And why would I want to live in France? Is Canada not an option in the quiz. Nothing beats Canada!
