Mini-Quiz: Responsibility

by Ron Kurtus (18 April 2001)

Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. Is taking responsibility risky?

You get credit or blame for the outcome

Not if you can find someone to blame

Yes, that is why you should never take responsibility

2. If a worker saw a hazard but didn't bother to report it, would he be considered irresponsible?

Not if it wasn't in his job description

No, unless he know who to blame

Yes, because it is only common decency to report hazards

3. Who should you blame, if you make a mistake or cause a problem?

Blame someone no one likes, so you won't be punished

If you have character, you take responsibility for your actions

Blame your parents for not being nurturing enough

If you got all three correct, you are on your way to becoming a Champion in Understanding Character. If you had problems, you had better look over the material again.

Be responsible and be trusted
