Einstein or Jesus Quiz!

Remember when people used to immediately ask you what you do for a living as a way to get to know you?  How tacky!  The husband and I have found a much more discreet way to pass judgment and determine whether or not you are our people.  Besides, a profession doesn’t tell you much about a person.  Unless, of course, you are a gold digger.  Then it might be important.

Instead of the job question, we ask new people what neighborhood they live in.  It is so telling!  After this preliminary question, we get a little deeper with questions about their personal preferences.  Remember the Einstein or Jesus game?  Well, that is part of it but with a lot more questions.

We are going to approach this like a simple quiz where you pick which one you prefer.  Post a comment or email me with your preferences and I promise I won’t judge you.  That might be a lie.  I promise I won’t publicly judge you.

  • Einstein or Elvis
  • Gin or Vodka
  • College Football or Pro Football
  • Cooking Channel or Food Network
  • Suburbs or City
  • German or Belgian (we are talking beer here)
  • Bottle or Glass (again, we are talking beer)
  • Facebook or Google+
  • Yelp or Foursquare
  • Crockpot or Le Creuset
  • Craft or Commerce
  • Analog or Digital

And last but not least, Einstein or Jesus.  The husband and I even disagree on that one.  Which one do you think I chose?

Einstein or Jesus

Einstein. What a handsome devil.

If you follow me on twitter, you have heard me going on about Einstein and Elvis.  While dining on deviled eggs last week (see previous post to get the reference), the bf came up with a new quiz for fellow diners.  You really get to know someone after these simple questions.

The bf: Would you rather have dinner with Albert Einstein or Elvis?
Me:
Einstein.
The bf:
Einstein or John Lennon?
Me:
Seriously…Einstein.
The bf:
Ok.  Well what other musical or influential figure.  Mother Teresa or someone?
Me:
Hmmm…
The bf:
I got it!  Einstein or Jesus?
Me:
Einstein.
The bf:
*eyes widen and mouth slightly drops* Jesus has the most published book in the world.  The most widely read biography!
Me:
Yep.  Still Einstein.
The bf:
What if someone chose Elvis over Einstein in the first question?
Me:
Game over.
The bf:
*chuckles*
