Do you ever take a quiz knowing you probably won't do well, just because it looks interesting? I do that a lot, and always give a high rating based the content and effort put in by the author.

As an author who has been focusing on making tough quizzes of late, it would be wrong for me not to take them too.

I play this in this park to learn something new...not impress myself with knowledge already acquired.

Kudos to all the authors that make us think or teach us new facts...

Definitely! I would be bored to tears taking nothing but the "EASY!!!!" quizzes. I score those higher too. Unfortunately, as many of you know from ratings on your quizzes, other people often seem to score based on how well they do. =6

I like to take tough ones and learn something. I really don't mind if I get 20 percent and usually still give the quiz author a good rating.

However, as a writer of some relatively tough quizes, I can say that the great majority of people here would rather name the world's ten most famous dishwashing detergents. The hard quizes don't get many takers and the easy ones do--as the folks who are flooding the fill-in-the-blank section will attest. And, honestly, I like to take those mindless ones myself, but not all the time. I also want some variation.

I find it unfortunate that it seems quiz-takers often rate the quiz on how well THEY did, instead of how well the quiz was done!

I definitely take the hard quizzes that I may not do well on. It is fun to learn new things. Sometimes I surprise myself with what I actually do know. I only shy away from subjects that I know absolutely nothing about ... say ... NFL quizzes.

I look for quiz authors who have written the tough quizzes to reward those who are putting an effort into challenging the rest of us!

I like the old adage"If it was easy anybody could do it".

All the time! I love taking quizzes on subjects that I know nothing about just to challenge myself. A lot of the time, my score will be pathetic, but at least I knew something! Well, hopefully!

I take quizzes because I think I might learn something new. More often than not I don't do very well but because I know how much work goes in to writing a good quiz I always rate the author high.

Got to agree. I usually rate the tougher ones much better, especially when they're in a subject I'm usually good in...I love a challenge. If a quiz is too easy, I feel cheated somehow. Then I see the titles, and I think "gotta do it." Sometimes, I'm surprised...I even got a 40 percent on one I was sure I'd get nada right on. That's the bonus...the fun thing is the learning new tidbits.

I tend to rate them on how they're written.

An example:

The capitol of Timbosia is?

This capitol city of Timbosia was once home to the Bifodreans and has been used to stage many explorations in the 24th century BS (before Sploofus)..?

Which would you prefer?
