Do you carry pocket-sized World’s Smallest Political Quiz cards with you?
Like so many libertarians, I do. (You can order them from the Advocates.)
As I've written before, Quiz cards are a great way to introduce libertarianism to anybody you meet. The Quiz is literally an outreach kit on a card.
Here’s an extra tip for using the cards: give the person you’re talking to more than one.
This may seem obvious, but, as Michael Cloud is fond of saying, the obvious is often the overlooked.
Just say something like this:
“Here, check out this Quiz. Here’s two: one for you, and one for a friend.”
“Here’s one Quiz card for you -- and a few more Quizzes to share with everyone in your office.”
Once people take the Quiz, they love it. And they want to talk about it. So help them start conversations -- by supplying them with enough Quizzes to share with their friends.
Even if they don't score libertarian, one of the recipients of the Quiz just might.
If appropriate, you can offer to answer any questions they or their friends might have about libertarianism and the Quiz. (You can find many common questions about the Quiz answered here.)
And here’s a bonus suggestion: “By the way, this Quiz is used in classrooms all across the country. If you'd like more copies for your kid’s classroom, just email or call and I'll be glad to supply them.”
(Thanks to Michael Cloud for ideas used in this post.)
