So yeah it’s fun doing a quiz online, you may even find out something you didn’t know. However it’s unlikely as they do tend to be self gratifying.

I have to remind myself, anything you give out to/use on the internet will be tracked, used, remembered and ultimately sold in some form.

Companies want to know everything about us, very specific personal details. Details you may not want to tell your family or friends. Our strengths and foibles given freely to who knows.

Not great really.

Be careful out there people.
