I Are Smart...

Lets get that damn long comment out of first place, shall we? Ahhh... that's better.

Every once in a while, I see this little ditty on some banner ad pimping some online IQ test. Well... today I caved (I blame Tiff for this). I've taken them before, but shoot, some are good, some are average, some... well... some are a waste of time.

Anyway... I did the deed, had it send me the email (then it tried to get me to give it a whole bunch of personal information, but while I was filling that out with bogus info, the email came so I killed that sucker and quick! The moral of that story, you don't have to give them your name or any of that crap. Just wait until you get the email then "x" out).

Now I presume most of my unfaithful readers are of average intelligence or higher. After all, the mere fact you read my blog shows above average intelligence, dudn't it?

So... let's have some fun, shall we?

Head over there and give it a whirl. Then if you want to, you can not only post your score, but you can see just how dumb a little test says that you are!

Mine? Well... it was a little higher than I thought it should be, but when you're talking about the high double digits like that... it's easy to miss by a point or two. Right? :P

Pah, do you need an IQ test to tell you how smart you are or are not? I've done these test both online and for Vocational Rehab and once you answer all the stuff then answer the summery stuff, I keep getting told I should be an engineer. Wuts that? ;) Have u heard from Nypinta?

Hmm, boy, was that a pain in the tuchas...

What? Nobody wants to admit what their score was... they weren't that low... were they?

Well Lucy, perhaps you SHOULD have been an engineer! I hear driving trains is very fulfilling.

And Yes, I have heard from PinTA... sorta. She posted over at her board and I dropped her a PM.

Yes... Tiff is going to get blamed for everything now that she told me I could blame her all I want. You all should remember that before you make any such statements. ;)

A pain in the tuchas Kath? Are you sure you were taking the right test, or at least with the right part of your anatomy? :P

Congrats on the Cup. I told you the Pens couldn't hang, but I rooted for them anyway. I watched a bit tonight and they blew another 5 on 3 early. Right there I knew it was a lost cause. Take a good picture of the cup for me!

I'm terrible at tests. :(

I was going to post my score (it wasn't the test that was the pain, it was all the BS afterwards), but nobody else did and I didn't want to be first. ;-)

Thanks! I already have a pic of me with the Cup from the Hockey Hall of Fame back in 1997. It's pretty sweet.

Oh what the hell. I have no shame. My score was 119. Of course I'm not sure what that MEANS. But the test was kind of fun.

Um, I don't believe it - 148.

I'm apparently a VERY good guesser.

Holy Carp! 148? See... I always knew you were a genius.

Tink -- you don't know what that means? It means you are highly intelligent for your particular age group. 100 would be average. Check out this.

Kath -- Others have posted, now it's your turn! ;)

Wa11z -- Your mad skillz at artistic endeavors probably mean you'd do poorly on this type of test, except the spatial skills portion. However, I can't draw a straight line without a ruler, so there you go...

And yes... I know that Jenny and fermi too neglected to deposit their digits...

I'm keeping a close eye on both of them.

I haven't seen your score yet, LL!!!

141. Where was my guidance counselor when I needed him?

Son of a...

Crap... I was just going to tell Kath that I'd post my score when KTM posted hers.

But I won't tell her that now. :P

132... But I have taken them before. And I cheat on the math. HAHAHAHA

Blogger LL said...

I'm not sure whether cheating demonstrates a high IQ or not. I mean... well... it does show you know how to beat the system, and that's gotta be worth something, right?

Oh, btw Kath... 141

sweet. I'm a genius.

Then why the heck do I still WORK for a living?

So you can lord your geniosity over everyone else? Or perhaps you just like hearing and smelling that next door cubemate of yours. What was his name again? Farty McFartsalot?

Its not so much cheating as in using a calculator. I can do the math...just not in my head.

I got really tired of filling in a ton of fake personal information after the test. I almost quit several times because they are soooo nosy, but I couldn't bear to let all my effort go to waist. Besides, I gave them my "junk email" address, which they are welcome to spam all they want.

I started taking the test after midnight last night and fell asleep about 20 times in my desk chair while on page two (because I'd just had several glasses of wine at a friend's house). So I left the test open on my screen and finished it this morning. I have always hated these tests and their nonsensical, brain-twister questions, but I figured I had better take it in order to post a comment on LL's blog. ;-)

My score: 145.

I didn't want to give those nosy owners of that web site my Blogger address, so I just took a screenshot of my score. ;-)

Is this one of those tricks where you click the link and it makes a farting sound?

I fall for that one about twice a week.

Wow, apparently I'm stupid...I'm going to take that test again sometime when I'm not watching a hockey game and am half asleep...that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it - until I take it again and get the same shitty score.
