Superheroes and Employees Online

By November 21, 2012

Follow me on:

Many of us who work in Human Resources, or even management, are helpers, at heart. So, when I encountered this quiz online, my first thought was to share it with you for a (gasp) Thanksgiving work break.

After all, I received a press release in email the other day that said that 80% of all employees who play games online during the work day, say that the game playing relieves stress and makes them more productive. This press release was - obviously? - from an online game producing company.

It followed on the heels of a press release that stated that the average employee spends 80 minutes a day surfing the Internet doing non-work-related activities. And, the employees doing the surfing are often your best employees who don't need a whole work day to get all of their work done. The sender? A company specializing in employee monitoring software that guarantees their software snooping will create a 90% decline in the time your employees spend surfing the Web during work hours.

However, before considering such monitoring software, you need to ask yourself what kind of company you want to be. Tie your answer to the results you want to create in this world and to the relationship you want to create with your employees. Trust or no trust?

Take the Superhero Quiz

Okay, I used to be Superman. Now I score in as the Iron Man, so obviously, I have been working on myself - or changing over the past couple of years? Following are the results of my personal answers to an online quiz. Why don't you take the quiz for fun today. (After all, taking the quiz will reduce your stress and make you more productive. Grin.)

If you scroll to the bottom of my blog post, you will find the link to take the quiz and determine which Superhero you most closely resemble - and each of us is a Superhero. Why not share your Superhero status in "comments" below?

I am superman and then hulk…. what does that mean????

May 29, 2007 at 1:34 pm
(7) Terri says:

are there definitions of what these mean? also, the percentages below our main superhero — do they also apply to us or are they relating to others who have taken the quiz?

Hi Rita and terri:

Notice just above the picture in your results, there is a phrase that describes you. Mine is: “You are mild-mannered, good, strong and you love to help others.” Frederick’s for Iron Man was: “Inventor. Businessman. Genius.”
Check it out again.

Hi Terri, I think the results are the characters for which you scored most highly. See my response to Rita about the results. I had hoped more people would post their actual results like Frederick did so we could get a sense of what all of the characters stood for. Thanks for posting.

It looks like this test was expanded from when I took in a few years ago. Good deal.

(23) barb says:

I am Superman (75%) and then Green Lantern (70%). I noticed that most of us are either SUPERMAN or GREEN LANTERN. Well . . .I shouldnt be surprised . . . hee hee . . . because we in HR are always expected to “save the world” and if something goes wrong in the organization, employees always say “It’s HR’s fault.”
