I used to do them and enjoyed them. But it's gotten to the point that so many of the answers are outdated that I gave up. No more.

After 8 years of doing trivia daily, I've stopped. It was too frustrating, because often the answer according to google was different then Sparks.

I get frustrated when I answer incorrectly! So I quit doing it but I’ll get back to it again.

A few seem more technical but a lot of them stem from information I have learned using SparkPeople or find to be common sense.

I do learn from them. But, more often than not, the ones I get incorrect are really eye opening.

I learn a lot from them, but I'm so competitive . . . what does it matter how many questions I need to get three right, but I get SO FRUSTRATED at myself when I get one wrong!! LOL. If you have never played, go to MY TRACKERS and you'll see a trivia link. It's a fun way of learning some interesting things about health.

SP doesn’t ask questions we do not have access to the answers for! I have learned many things from the trivia and articles they come from! Thank you, SP!

Yes, mixed bag for me. Some days, like today, I go 3 correct and none incorrect. Some days, it takes 6 -8 questions to get 3 correct. It's a learning tool for me.

I'm doing ok, it's a mix of "I read about that in the health news" and "wow, I didn't know that!".

Anyone else feel a little uninformed with the trivia questions? I find them to be extemely technical well beyond what the average person would know.
