Multiple Choice Polls are a fun and versatile poll choice. You can use them to get quick insights on your audience opinions while adding an interactive break to your speaker sessions or presentations. We've compiled some of our favourite ways to use Pigeonhole Live's Multiple Choice Polls for you to try out:
1. Two Truths One Lie
Two Truths One Lie is a classic ice breaker activity that you can run with your team before meetings, during offsite or during team bonding sessions. Simply set up a series of multiple choice questions with two truth options and one lie option for each question. The questions could be about the members in the team or about their day to day work. Then get the rest to vote!
2. Opinion Poll
Opinion polls are your classic democratic decision-making tool. Set up multiple choice questions with options with options to pick from and get your audience to vote on the options they prefer. At the end of the poll, you have the majority vote for the decisions. Use it liberally at meetings, events, or to solve the eternal question of "Who wore it best?".
You can run your opinion poll with regular text options, or use a numeric scale to get your audience to rate on initiatives or ideas.
3. Mood Meter
Whether you want to take the temperature of the room before the start of a presentation or get people to open up about how they are feeling, a mood meter is your go to! Use our icon poll option to get your audience to rate how they are feeling.
Multiple Choice Polls are a great way to take stock on your workshop attendees' progress on various topics. Simply run Progress Polls to gauge their understanding before the workshop to tailor your lessons accordingly, or in between lessons to gauge their comprehension of the materials.
Examples of questions to ask:
- My understanding of Topic A is...
- Very high
- Very Low
- I could comfortably hold a conversation about Topic A.
- Very true
- Very False
5. Would You Rather
Another classic ice breaker activity!
Set up a series of Multiple-Choice Poll with interesting and fun questions such as:
- Would you rather be born with an elephant trunk or a giraffe neck?
- Would you rather be constantly itchy or constantly sticky?
- Would you rather eat poison ivy or a handful of wasps?
- Would you rather have a 1-minute conversation with your past self or your future self?
The trick with this activity is that, the quirkier your question, the more fun it gets. It’s also a great way to get to know the quirky side of the people you work with. Here are 71 questions for you to pick from.
If you want to make the game more fun, add images to the poll, especially when you are presenting two horrible options for your teammates to pick from. Or, adopt some of these icebreaker games into a poll format.
6. Net Promoter Score
Speaking at a customer engagement event about your product? Get instant feedback on what your potential users think about it using numeric poll scales. Here are some sample questions to help you along:
- How likely are you to use product X?
- How would you rate the usefulness of product X in your company?
- How likely are you to recommend this product to your friends and colleagues?
7. Image Poll
Set up polls of adorable animal photos and let your team vote on their favourites before the meeting. Goofy and adorable animal pictures instantly put you in a better mood during groggy mornings before a serious and gruelling meeting.
8. Never have I ever
Another fun ice breaker you can try with Multiple Choice Polls is “Never have I ever…”. Set up a series of "never have I ever..." questions and a have a voting session before your meeting. Here are some questions for inspiration but don’t be afraid to personalise it to your office and team!
- Never have I ever cut my own hair.
- Never have I ever cried in a Pixar movie.
- Never have I ever broken a bone.
- Never have I ever dropped my phone in the toilet.
- Never have I ever gotten a tattoo I regretted.
It's a great way to get to break the ice, add a fun break in between sessions and get to know your team better.
