    I failed the test...95. I guessed on all the vocab questions and that was my highest score.

    It was quick (sort of) but what was so dirty about it? :confused: It says I'm a mathematical genius! ( :rofl: )

    Edit: Btw, I got 120.:rolleyes:

    I don't find any dirty thing about this test! Perhaps dirty means wrong here.

    As is typical, the test is plain wrong. It marked me down for saying Arabic was the least spoken language (it thinks its Hindi); apparently the testmaker didn't bother to check his facts.

    To be bitterly cynical, anyone who puts any value on this kind of test deserves to spend their life worrying about a random number.

    Funny that ...
    Apparently everyone's logical inteligence is below average.

    Sure! It's just for fun. And I checked Hindi as the least spoken language and I guess that was true.

    Come on people! I am sure the true answer is Hindi according to this test.

    And it's broken at that. I've verified step by step that every one of my answers is the one it thinks is right, and it still gives me a "below average" on logic intelligence. (The number it gives is 140).

    IT's CRAP. Said I had an IQ of 135. What an INSULT!

    The test thinks it's Hindi. It's not, it's Arabic, by a factor of 4. I suspect the author might be thinking that "widely spoken" means "is official language of the most countries". If so, he's using a truly useless metric and being asinine about it.

    I also thought that meant official language!:blushing:

    The test answers are (in white):

    BBCCA CCACB CDCAB C

    You can verify this by changing one answer and checking how it effects your score (make sure to hit 'submit'). 16 is wrong, of course. And the score system is broken - top score is 140 with 'below average' for logical intelligence. Some sort of joke I guess.

    Usually "widely spoken" is a collquial way to say "lots of people speak it". The only meaningful metric is simply, how many people are fluent in it? The author thinks this is wrong, and prefers to count by political divisions, thereby putting the entire population subcontinent of India on equal footing with the Vatican and their Latin mass.

    According to this test my IQ dropped about 40 points because of the test.

    Am I missing something here? As far as I know Bush's been president since 1998. So he served in 20, eh?
