(Lucky) Smart US Test results

Okay, I displaced Martin on my 4th try. Here is why: I purchased the report and was able to get more chances at the test and I ended up scoring 184.75 on one of them thus placing my score on this test in the stratosphere. There is only one problem — my IQ while high is not stratospheric as this result seems to indicate. I must have simply gotten lucky on questions I was not sure on. So trust me when I say this is a one arm bandit result and not a reflection of my true mental abilities.

Still, I am very amused by this result.

And I believe this result is an omen from the the online community of Gods and Goddesses to hang my hat and say goodbye to the sublunary realm of online IQ testing…and take the good luck for what it is worth (maybe $9.99 as Im very curious to see that report! — what did PT Barnum say about suckers?)…perhaps it is time to go on Oprah and announce how I raised my IQ 40 points in one day!

    Hi Will.

    [Shaking my fist in mock outrage!]

    (This score puts Will atop the all time leader board, btw.)

    I fully intend to go back and retake the Smartest of US test, just as you did. It occurred to me that all I needed was a bit of practice and a few lucky answers to rise in the rankings. (Plus, I have seven credits…) When I looked at my report I also kicked myself over a few of the questions I got wrong. Silly mistakes or reading something into the question that wasn’t there.

    This encouragement to retake I think ameliorates the fact that the test is just thirty minutes and that the questions are a little variable. It’s not essential to purchase the report, and multiple takers probably wouldn’t buy them all.

    In any case, I don’t watch Oprah, but I will make an exception when you appear as her guest.

    I’ll take these results with a grain of salt, but this result is by far my most favorite grain…

    Congratulations Will on the score!!! That’s funny :) . Please let me know when Oprah gets back to you. I hear it’s easier to get on her show if you have a book published :) .
