    Talking Whole purpose of this thread - fun and irony

    I did not build btw, just thought I'd share what looks like fun.

    If we can get the whole thing, I'll send an email to them linking to here...and we can suggest our own, like "20 for a hj but YMMV"

    Extremely biased!

    BTW I am a genius... guess I remember too many of my mom's expressions...(9 lives of a cat; 13 loaves makes a bakers dozen; 15 men on a ... ect.) I don't take this very seriously, what it is measuring is recognition and what you have already learnt.

    IMHO, intelligence is about the ability to learn and understand (not just memorise and repeat back) and apply that knowledge creatively. This test can be passed by anybody who had these facts and expressions memorised.

    They will forget what you said,
    they will forget what you did,
    but they will never forget the way you made them feel.

    Reminds me of a certain quote. The following was written by a peer and friend of Richard Feynman.

    Several conversations that Feynman and I had involved the remarkable abilities of other physicists. In one of these conversations, I remarked to Feynman that I was impressed by Steven Hawking's ability to do path integration in his head.

    "Ahh, that's not so great," Feynman replied. "It's much more
    interesting to come up with the technique like I did, rather than to be
    able to do the mechanics in your head."

    Feynman wasn't being immodest, he was quite right. The true secret to genius is in creativity, not in technical mechanics.

    This is not a mensa sponsored test....

    Mensa's IQ determination is not based on what you know but how you think. I did the home test a few years back but never the actual one where you are in a room and monitored. They recommended I do it based on the results of the home test but I declined as I just wanted to see how their tests compare to regular IQ tests.

    Since a man's IQ drops about 100 points when he has an erection, I don't think this test is very useful for people on this forum.
