Yeah...you'd think...both times I failed to differentiate between Spanish and Portugese though.

I got 14.

I don't think this makes you a genius.

Just means you are familiar with more languages.

16, it would be more accurate and a better test if it wasn't multiple guess quiz though. Then my score would have probably been around 7.

I missed Swedish and Yoruba.

Considering I've probably only practiced 4 of the languages, and maybe have seen 9 or 10 I was surprised.

had I followed my 1st mind with swedish I would have got 18 out of 19, but Ikea screwed me over.

I probably got 3 or 4 just from process of elimination. GG

I got 12, mostly through guessing. If i hadn't denied my first instict on two of them I'd have guessed two more right.

I have a difficult time telling the difference between Norwegian and Swedish, but at least i can tell the difference between Norwegian black metal and Swedish death metal. That's very important.

I am surprised. I suck at languages outside of English. Mostly guessing, but somehwat educated from what I remember from seeing signs on little ethnic shops and the like.

14 out of 19 but I probably only really had a good true guess at about half and I am mono-linguistic so it was more a fun test than an example of a valid one.

Turkish was easy as was Arabic, Hindi not so much but I got it.

Some of the one's I got I guessed but did not even know the language, what is Yoruba for example?.

You got 15 out of 19 right!
Wow! You can identify a bunch of languages on sight. You’re probably a genius.


Lucky guesses on many of them.

17 or 19 correct, hmm not bad. I would have though the Asian languages would have been more challenging.

13 it helps having exposure to a fair mix of Asian shops and culture working around London UK

15.

Not that impressive for someone who prides himself on having a linguistic bent.

The various eastern writing systems threw me somewhat - never been an interest of mine.

The Arabic characters of the various languages are the ones that got me.

16 out of 19. Better than I thought, especially since there are so many that are so similar, especially in the Asian languages.

Meh. I don't think this is at all indicative of intelligence, just exposure etc. Freaking Urdu, Arabic and Pashtu messed me up. I know what a number of those languages are for weird reasons.

Fun test though!
