The First Annual Praise Poll

All human beings – even the most cynical ones amongst us – have had the experience of praising something at one time or another. For some of us, it may have been a restaurant, movie, or vacation spot. For others, a rock band, teacher, or TV show. Different strokes for different folks. The purpose of this poll is to identify precisely what these "praise-worthy" catalysts are – in other words, what moves a person to spontaneously speak glowingly of something to another person. True word of mouth, you might say. If you want to participate, simply rate each item below, on a scale of 1-5 (5 being the highest), for how much you tend to praise it to other people.

The results of this poll will be published on Idea Champions' Heart of Innovation blog later this year. Stay tuned.
