Question Do you follow DaveDragon's blog

I've been following Dave's blog almost since he started it. Over the last several of days, he's had a couple of tests on the site. One for IQ and the other for which side of the brain do you work from. Here are my results:

Your IQ Is 130



Your Logical Intelligence is Below Average No suprise here
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius Ever see my try to carry on an intellegent conversation
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Exceptional Right
Your General Knowledge is Exceptional

A Quick and Dirty IQ Test

http://www.blogthings.com/quickanddirtyiqtest/


You Are 20% Left Brained, 80% Right Brained



The left side of your brain controls verbal ability, attention to detail, and reasoning.
Left brained people are good at communication and persuading others.
If you're left brained, you are likely good at math and logic.
Your left brain prefers dogs, reading, and quiet.

The right side of your brain is all about creativity and flexibility.
Daring and intuitive, right brained people see the world in their unique way.
If you're right brained, you likely have a talent for creative writing and art.
Your right brain prefers day dreaming, philosophy, and sports.

Are You Right or Left Brained?

All results to be taken with a grain of salt, but still fun anyway.

On His Ride,
Steve

I scored a perfect 50/50 on the brain.

As far as the IQ test. A bit low but I figure it had to do more with the American history and minor language barrier (vocabulary).

How come everybody's Logic Intelligence is below average so far? Must be a trick question or two in there.

***You Are 55% Left Brained, 45% Right Brained***

Hey Joe, looks like you and I put together equal Raffy. But come on, where's your IQ score?

The main issue with these either/or tests is that in many cases external factors can often influence the direction taken. But they don't offer an "it depends" choice.

Now I see why I don't understand!

There was a link to another IQ test. It was 12 screens of questions and also gave a result. See below.
Quite different than the 1st one.
Which is right???




Congratulations, Jay!
Your IQ score is 131

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 Precision Processor. This means you're exceptionally good at discovering quick solutions to problems, especially ones that involve math or logic. You're also resourceful and able to think on your feet. And that's just some of what we know about you from your test results.

I think you have to give up 15-20 points for taking the wrong test.

My commentary:
  • All that from 16 questions?
  • If one answers those math questions correctly and is rated as "Genius", what does that say about our expectations? I would expect any junior high school student to get them all right. Simple algebra, very simple math, and careful reading of the questions.
