Test your Optimism Quotient

The online edition of the Everest Herald, a branch of the Wausau Herald in Wisconsin ran an article today that ask readers to find out their Optimism Quotient.  It asked forty questions that you were to respond to with usually, sometimes or never.

You were then asked to score yourself as follows: two points for usually, one point for sometimes and zero points for never.

Those with forty or more points were considered to be as positive as members in the Everest Area Optimist Club; others, not so much.  Regardless of your score, the Everest Area Optimist Club used this article to invite test-takers and others to join their club.  Here's a quote: If your score was below forty points you might want to consider becoming an Everest Optimist Club member and in a short time your score will probably be above forty.  

Cute.  Friendly.  Engaging.  Inviting.  Fun.  Doesn't it make you want to find out more?

Test your Optimism Quotient.
