What are General Trivia Questions Good For?
Yes, you might ask yourself what general trivia knowledge is actually good for? Isn’t it just details, considerations, or pieces of information of very little importance or value?
We may not always understand it, but our general knowledge makes up a big part of who we are. It defines our interests, our choices in life, and who we want to socialize with. It can be said that the more we know, the happier we are and the more success we have in life. If you have a lot of knowledge, trivial or not, of the world around you, you also engage in what is going on around you. And other people engage in you.
Knowledge is not only cumulative, but it also grows exponentially. If you have a sound base of general insight, you will also find it easier to learn more. The more facts you accumulate, the smarter you become. As you get older, it also keeps your brain active.

General trivia quizzes are one of the best ways to challenge yourself and keep the interest of the world around you alive.
