The Purpose of the ¨Do You Have What It Takes to be a Successful Fifty-Plus Nomad?¨ Quiz
I developed the quiz after reading several books about adapting to a new culture and culture shock. The questions reflect the skills necessary to adjust to living and to travel outside of your home country.
I designed these questions to make you aware of what it takes to travel for extended periods or live in another country successfully.
If you do not mark ¨agree¨ or ¨strongly agree¨ on any of the questions, you may want to think about how you will deal with that issue.
It is not a big deal if most of your responses are ¨agree¨ rather than ¨strongly agree¨. You are still an excellent candidate for the lifestyle. Most people do not strongly agree with many of these statements. Even I only ¨agree¨ with most of the statements.
Fifty-Plus Nomad Categories
The quiz categorizes travelers in four Fifty-Plus Nomad categories based on their answers compared to the general public.
- Category One; Natural Born
- Category Two: More Prone to Be Successful than Most People
- Category Three: As Likely to Be Successful than Most People
- Category Four: You May Not Be Successful
I gave this quiz to a few classes when I taught seminars about Living and Traveling Abroad around the US in the 2000s. As expected, around 2/3rds of respondents fit into category 2. The rest were divided fairly evenly between categories one and three.
While I may be surprised, I suspect that the distribution of responses from the participants of this online quiz will be similar to those in my classroom experiment. Generally, if someone considers long-term travel or expat life, they are more likely to succeed in the lifestyle than the average person.
