(I came in at roughly 33%, as opposed to the average of 45%).
Diagnosis:
OK, so you're still reasonably in touch with the real world. But if you do fancy a hard-core career in e-business, we suggest you mug up a bit and pop down to the trainer store...

Remedy:
Have a nose through e-consultancy's guru-esque Publications to bone up on clever things like eCRM

Are you more or less boring than they are?

I came in at 70% against an average of about 45% :roll:

Diagnosis:
Starting to show worrying signs of 'old-timer-itis' - either that or your family owns a few underground fashion labels...

( I am an Old Timer )
Remedy:
Have a look through the e-business solution providers database on this site. If you recognise more than 20% of the 2,000+ companies there then call a personality ambulance.

Clocked in at 65%
Diagnosis:
A bit of an e-bore, but nothing too tragic. You should still at least receive a few invitations to dinner parties with your friends..

Remedy:
Do not go to gatherings of other e-bores who could corrupt you. Consult this site's calendar of e-business events to find out where and what to avoid.

20% :roll:

Diagnosis:
Well done. Sounds like you're still living somewhere near Planet Earth. Not sure how well you'd adjust if dropped in at the deep end of e-life, though...

Remedy:
Read some of the e-business white papers we've got on this site so you can talk the talk a bit better.


I don't have a grandma nor pda... this must be the big counts, because I got more boring since i started with IT.
