  1. When you were a student, would you have been more likely to turn your test in first or last?
  2. Question 1 on a test can be narrowed down to either A or B (you’re sure it’s one or the other). Question 12 on the test can be narrowed down to the same two answers. You know one is A and the other is B. Do you go for the all-or-nothing guess (choosing A for one and B for the other) or do you play it safe and take one correct (choosing A for both questions)?
  3. Are you more of a multiple-choicer, a true-falser, a fill-in-the-blanker, or a free-responder?
  4. What are your thoughts on standardized college aptitude tests such as the SAT?
  5. In the past week, in what ways have you been tested?

Thanks for fiving, and have a stress-free weekend!

We here at the Friday 5 LOVE New Year’s Resolutions, but we’ll spare you all the self-improvement talk for this week, since we expect the other regular memes to go that way. Instead, we’ll focus on what you’re already doing well:

  1. What is one healthy food you really, really like?
  2. In what area of your life are you especially well-organized?
  3. Who is someone you’ve managed to stay in touch with?
  4. What bad habit were you able to break (or what vice were you able to give up), and what was it like going through that change?
  5. Someone out there, whether you know it or not, wishes he or she were more like you in some way. What is it he or she most likely admires you for?

Thanks for participating, and have a tasty 2007!

  1. What film did you think had the most annoying, maddening, preposterous, disappointing, or idiotic ending?
  2. What is the most recent example in your life of something coming to an unexpected (or unwelcome) end and then turning into an even better beginning?
  3. How do you feel about your rear end? (alternate question for those who think this is just far too inappropriate: How do you usually spend your sitting-around-on-your-rear-end days?)
  4. Some people read the endings of books before they invest time, energy, and emotion into the rest of them. What are your thoughts about this practice?
  5. How would you like to end each day, and how do you actually end each day?
