in reply to poll ideas quest 2010

The most recognizable living person today is…

  • an actor
  • a movie or theater staff
  • an announcer or talk show host
  • a writer
  • a musician
  • an other kind of artist
  • a website or game designer
  • a businessman
  • a sportsman
  • a sports leader or coach
  • a scientist
  • not a scientist though claims to be
  • a religious leader
  • a politician or military leader
  • an activist
  • a royalty

The above works alone too, but you might also do a second poll later similar to the following.

The most recognizable contemporary sportsman is

  • Lance Armstrong
  • David Beckham
  • Roger Federer
  • Michael Jordan
  • Garry Kasparov
  • Michael Phelps
  • Michael Schumacher
  • Mike Tyson
  • Tiger Woods

(I gave sports as the example because that's the one for which it's the easiest to make a reasonably long but varied list of very famous figures.)

Update: added "businessman"; changed Cristiano Ronaldo to David Beckham, for the latter is more famous.

Update: in fact, the second poll (the one about sportsmen) might work alone too.

Update: you may want to add Björn Borg.
