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

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 get:
Chinese ~ 1,000 million
Hindi ~ 400 million
English ~ 300 million
Arabic ~ 200 million

Which certainly isn't a factor of 4. If the data for that question is, say 40 years old, then the order would almost certainly be different.

As a bonus, 'chinese' isn't really a spoken language - for the question, Mandarin would have been a much better choice.

Exactly the same as MK, even the comments.

However in a real IQ test you would get or lose marks according to how fast you answered the questions, because in any test of IQ, speed of thought is a factor of intelligence, but then it is just for fun :smile: Something even less accurate than a real IQ test :smile:

800 million around the world, according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hindi. No point in restricting Hindi-speakers to India, anymore than Spanish-speakers to Spain, or English-Speakers to the UK.

The test is a hoax. It gives the "below average" logical intelligence no matter how you do. Also one of the answers is incorrect. Read the rest of this thread.

Yeah, and also I agree with you about the Hindi thing, I said Hindi anyway, but I was forewarned, I have no idea what I would of said in reality probaly Hindi :wink: as AFAIK India has 16 or so fairly widely spoken languages so by population I would of said it was lower even if Hindi is common although that's my ignorance I guess. Your point stands.

EDIT: correction it has 24 languages and 1562 dialects, man!:surprised

High verbal and math. Well, shoot, shouldn't I be one of those people who goes around saying mathematics is a language? o:)

Maybe it's because of my low logical intelligence. :frown:

How did I get below average logic, and above average verbal? I got the logic ones right and two of the verbal ones wrong :confused:

I'll let you in on a little secret I got every single question right AFAIK and I got below average logic, everyone gets below average logic or less, that's why it's a dirty IQ test, because if you take it your logic is flawed.:smile: IMO it's harder to get every question wrong than right though:smile:

See post 35 for further details.
