What’s Your Che Factor?

Che-Factor-Logo-2Welcome to the Che Factor: the quiz that measures how closely your choices match up with Che Guevara’s. Your answers are not necessarily right or wrong, just how closely they correspond to some of the decisions made by Che Guevara as guerilla leader and revolutionary. Many of the responses are just, in some cases even humanitarian, but they are not necessarily the path chosen by Guevara.

There are 5 scenario questions asking you to choose between 4 different outcomes. These are loosely based on actual events that took place during Che’s life. What path will you choose?

After answering these five questions you will be given a score between 0 and 15. The scale and your score are explained at the end of the test. The higher your score, the more your choices were like Che Guevara’s.

So, what’s your Che factor?

Question 4 of 5

The imperialists have scattered but their spies and sympathizers lurk about trying to retake control. These are dangerous times. As you enter your office to start work a deafening blast knocks you off your chair and shatters your window. A bomb has exploded outside your office building and dozens of your fellow citizens lay screaming in the street.

Question 5 of 5

Not only are they criminals but the longer they live they pose a risk to the revolution. The world is also watching to see how the new regime treats its enemies. You:
