Science lovers, how do you score on this?

    Although this online quiz isn't about Physics, people who are analytical and into Science tend to score a certain way. So it could be interesting to see how we all score!

    Here are references with PDF's of scientific peer-review journal articles testing the actual quiz across cultures and types of people:

    Kind of interesting :smile:

    Anyway, it's just fun to see how physics and other science lovers in this forum score.

    I don't really see anything other than 27Thousand (a person) got 38 (a number).

    As for me, I would not call myself a science/physics lover (I might not be understanding whom you are calling science/physics lover: someone who keeps an eye on NASA and loves science fiction movies?).

    Consider this, the quiz stated the average is 16 for the control who took the quiz. Those taking the quiz in the forum seem to have different scores, and may be more analytically/socially minded than others.

    When I looked at some research on it, science/math majors + men tend to score a little differently.

    Or anyone who reads the title of the thread and considers oneself to take the quiz works also.

    28 for me.

    On PF, the average, so far, is 28 4/11 with a standard deviation of about 8.87.
    Z-score=1.351

    This means, if we assume Gaussian distribution, that 91% of regular PF users score higher than average!

    You're ruining our near 27 average score! :tongue:

    Well it does mean that I'm no good in social situations... :rolleyes:
