About This Quiz

"To me, a winner is someone who recognizes their God-given talents, works his tail off to develop them into skills, and uses those skills to accomplish his goals. Even when I lost, I learned what my weaknesses were and I went out the next day to turn those weaknesses into strengths." - Larry Bird. 

Have you taken the time to develop your skills? What skills are even important? Certainly, knowing your way around a toolset is important. Maybe you even know how to fix a sink or a toilet, but are those the only skills you should have? Shouldn't you also have some basic outdoor skills? Of course you should. There are many other skills you should know as well, but recent studies show most men can't pass this basic skills test. Obviously, these are skills that have been neglected and forgotten. 

How well would you do on a skills test? Here's your chance to find out. You'd better be ready, though, because you don't want to fall into the 98% of men who can't pass a skills test like this. If you believe you have what it takes, get started and show everyone that you're in the top 2% when it comes to knowing these skills!
