Are You A Qualified Professional?

Do you feel that you lead your personal life with the utmost professionalism? Or do you complain about it constantly to whomever will listen?

If you're a working professional, are you truly professional?

Do you do your job?

Or, slack off and spend a good portion of your time, worrying over whether or not you've pissed off the person sitting next to you?

Back when I was a sales trainer at a prominent well known cruise line, I enjoyed handing out brain teaser tests, to all of my new hires. Through a series of "fun tests" this was what ultimately helped me better understand the strength and weaknesses of each employee as they went through their 6week training course.

Just for "fun," lets see how well you'll do with this following quiz. Please respond with your answers in the comment field. Later on today I will have a follow up posting with the "correct answers."

This quiz may help assist you in finding your strengths or perhaps, weak points.

Have fun with it. Play along and I promise to post the answers by this afternoon.

The following small quiz consists of 4 questions, it tells whether you are qualified to be a professional. According to statistics of Andersen Worldwide, around 90% of the professionals failed the exam. HINT: The questions are not that difficult.

1. How do you put a giraffe into a refrigerator?

2. How do you put an elephant into a refrigerator?

3. The Lion King is hosting an animal conference, all the animals attend except one. Which animal does not attend?

4. There is a river which is inhabited by crocodiles. How do you manage to cross it?
