Maybe it’s just me, but toggles and light switches always trip* me up. To pseudo-scientifically find out, I captured different toggle designs in the wild from the ol’ World Wild Web into a quiz using the Quiz Creator I designed and developed for the Engaging News Project.

I’d be delighted if you took the time to answer 10 questions on what state (“on” or “off”) each toggle is communicating. Without further ado, here is the quiz, “Is this thing on?”

Follow me on Twitter @juryjowns to hear the results.


* Pun 100% intended.

    Nice quiz. Some of those are definitely tricky. I guess the color was the indicator for me if the words were not there.
