¨Time flies. It is up to you to be the navigator.¨
Note: If you take this test and the next one (What Type of Fifty-Plus Nomad Are You?), I will receive a copy of the answers. I will not know who you are or the overall results of the quiz
The Purpose of the ¨Do You Have What It Takes to be a Successful Fifty-Plus Nomad?¨ Quiz
I developed the ¨Do You Have What It Takes to be a Successful Fifty Plus Nomad?¨ 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 traveling 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 before becoming a Fifty-Plus Nomad.
It is not a big deal if most of your responses are ¨agree¨ rather than ¨strongly agree¨. You are still an excellent candidate for life as a Fifty Plus Nomad. 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 categories based on how much their answers compare to the general public
- Category One; Natural Born Fifty-Plus Nomad
- Category Two: More Prone to Be a Successful Fifty-Plus Nomad than Most People
- Category Three: As Likely to Be a Successful Fifty-Plus Nomad than Most People
- Category Four: You May Not Be a Successful Fifty Plus Nomad
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 divided fairly even 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 is considering life as a Fifty Plus Nomad, they are more likely to be successful in the lifestyle than the average person.
