It was a better day today.
Of course it's always a good day when you find out that you are an undiscovered (and unlauded) GENIOUS! I took the following test in between bouts of data entry (and kept having to minimize the screen, let's just say I was a bit distracted, so I'm probably EVEN SMARTER, ha!)
The funniest thing about this was, to me, the change it appears to mark in the way my brain is working lately. The last standardized test I took was the GRE and my results were laughable. I missed 1 question on the language skills, and 3 questions on the logic skills sections which put me pretty high up in the percentiles. But the math, oh the math! I scored SO LOW on the math. It looked I was some person who could recite the dictionary and hold my own in an argument with Plato (something I definitely COULDN'T and CAN'T do) but couldn't figure out how many doors are on a 4-door Sedan. Very much a skewed portrait.
Now, well, as you can see below, things are changed. Now apparently I'm a mathmatical genious, but can't reason my way out of a paper bag. How does this happen? Isn't math a logical application? Shouldn't skill in one equate to skill in the other? Why are my skills always picking on each other, pushing each other down? If I'm a mathmatical genious, how come it makes my head hurt to balance my checkbook? And how come it takes me 3 days and 2 bottles of Aleve to figure out our household budget? If I was a genious wouldn't I be able to spew those numbers out in my sleep? Logially, this would seem to indicate that I am not a genious. Of course, the test doesn't give me much confidence in my logic skills. So, if that's right, and I'm wrong, then I'm not a genious. But can I be a genious and still be wrong? And if I'm right, and I'm not wrong, then that would mean I'm not a genious, but I'm right about that and that would mean that my logic skills aren't as bad as the test says and that would push my score up making me even more of a genious even as I prove that I'm not one. Ow. My head hurts again.
Anyway, if you take the test below and it show you as less smart than me, well, I hate to say it, but it's probably true. I am a genious, after all, and I can't argue with that (apparently I can't argue with anything). If it says you're smarter than me, well then I knew it was wrong anyway. Those tests are always wrong.
And that just goes to prove my old theory: Germans Love David Hasselhof*
