Don't know what the reults mean.............

In order to placate one of my acquaintences at their new job (career testing), I agreed to submit to an IQ test..........yuck! :P

It came back as a 131. It also said 80% of all Americans are 80-130...........now I feel special................

Well..............not that smart, I got a D in high school chemistry, and I dropped out of my math minor because trig killed me...............

I wasn't smart enough to be a plumber or electrician, so I just pay them a lot of money so I can flush my toilet..................

If you're having an electrician work on your toilet, just make sure you stand well back before you let fly!

I did the test and this thing is just running me around in circles, trying to get me to sign up for junk. What's up with that?

Didn't we recently have a post about plumbers working on a leaky roof? I guess I'm just not smart enough to understand these things.

I got a 144. :

"Your mind's strengths allow you to think ahead of the game -- to imagine or anticipate what should happen next in just about any situation. Because you're equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with new ideas and this makes you a Visionary Philosopher."

Justin, I think you should put "Visionary Philosopher" in the text field next to your name.

I should. And it is a technically correct title - I'm not blind and I do think (sometimes).

Anyone want to compare SAT, LSAT, GMAT, GRE, etc. scores?
