Was given a link to those Tickle IQ/personality tests (http://web.tickle.com/) and under the assumption that they likely give out glowing reports to anyone that takes the test in hopes of their selling them the 15 page "full" report.. thought it would be funny to intentionally tank it on a second run through:


Congratulations! Your IQ score is 73

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others. Your Intellectual Type is Inventive Inquisitor. You have the unusual distinction of being equally good (and by equally good, we mean you are as dumb as a box of rocks.. and too dim to realize that equally good also means equally bad, which is great.. because we're going to try and sell you a full report on just how stupid you really are in a minute here!) at math and verbal skills. This means you are a creative thinker (pants first, THEN shoes!) and are uniquely good at teaching others through experiences (Stupid is as stupid does!). You are also a great improviser (able to use your bare hand in the absence of toiletpaper) and very good at handling change (switching from Elmers to regular paste doesn't slow you down a bit.)

Find out more in your personalized 15-page IQ Report. It's ready right now!

***CHA-CHING!***

(Give us your $10, you drooling, mouthbreathing neanderthal!)

Hehe..


Actual Results from quickie tests..

stanford-binet IQ tests just test your ability to do stanford-binet IQ tests with some correlation to academic success though the ability to work unsupervised is a better indicator even there


in terms of real world success in life social and emotional skills are much more closley associated with long term sucess than IQ

As someone who worked for a qualatative psychologist for a year i can state, for the record, that the real reason intelligence tests exist is so that the person who wrote it can feel smarter than the people who take it. And it gives research psychologists something to do when they run out of drug or alcohol addicted teenagers to study (don't ask).

A genisis test on the other hand... that is a whole diffenerent, dark, scary, lower limbic and hind brain based, kettle of fish.


EDITED to leave the spelling mistakes in. Vive the funktionallere elitrat!

Read a book called "The Mismeasure of Man" written by Stephan Jay Gould. The book discusses the effectiveness of IQ tests in measuring intelligence among humans. The title of the book gives away the findings.

Yes, Yellow.. I intentionally tanked every question to see what kind of "spin" they'd put on it in their attempts to sell my neanderthal self a 15-page report (hence my satirical/lampooning additions to their summary.)


Now..

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>A genisis test on the other hand... that is a whole diffenerent, dark, scary, lower limbic and hind brain based, kettle of fish. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>


Did a brief internet search for genisis psychological (and genesis, just in case) tests and came up with nothing. I'd be curious to know more about this.

...?

I wonder how this forum as a whole would score, 10-20 maybe? Me of course I would average it out higher as I ran like 150% or so! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif
