I got all three wrong. All that proves is I'm underedumakated.

(thank God)


Nah... it could mean you need to work on your reading comprehension or need to slow down your reading due to impatience like me lol.

I've read about Ayahuasca it's powerful stuff. One anecdotal had a guy out of commission for three days along with serious vomiting. However, he claims he had been in a very deep depression for years and came out 'cured'. It's just one story but people should research before jumping onto any miracles.

Yeah, I think I would prefer something that came with less vomiting and snot running side effects. I have watched some videos of that.

I have a 'proper' education. I'm, self read. Good imagination counts too. They don't include that in 'quotient' testing.

Reading lots of books is good for knowledge base, but not so good for interpersonal skills. They don't 'quotient' that either.

Nor do they test for self determination, independence, or wisdom.

Tsk tsk. I still found fault with their test though. IQ tests only measure learned skills, the "higher' the learning, the "higher" the "IQ".

Bah...

Give me loyalty, love and wisdom over numbers and knowledge, any-day.

Ball = .05

100 Widgets = 5 minutes

36 days for the lake

iPod says the song is 4:36 long

 


Now to see how I did....

The last one makes sense when I read it! D'oh!

I was doing more work than necessary. Which goes to show I am not that smart. Dang geometric progressions!

I shouldn't be surprised. I got a 62% on the math section of the GRE mostly because I had forgotten simple algebra (math minor).

The more things change, the more they stay the same!

Without looking at the answers I'm going to say:

1) Would be too easy if the answer was 10cent so I'm going to say the ball was free, it cam with the bat and that 10cent is vat.

2) It would still take 5 minutes to do 100 widgets.

3) It would take 47 days to fill the lake half way.

Fun ....

first 2 were easy.

I couldn't get the equation for the 'lily pad' question.

I missed the first one. I should have known that .10 was too easy. I still had to do the algebra before I was convinced that .05 was the right answer:

Let
x=bat
y=ball

x + y = 110
x = y + 100
(y + 100) + y = 110
2y = 110 - 100
2y = 10
y = 5


-dex

I knew that was too easy. Should have checked the math.

Got #2 and #3 right.

Edit...#1 was like the old "where did the other dollar go?" brain-teaser.

Those were so simple, isn't there some harder ones, I had the answers in about a minute and a half. Got anything that is a little more challenging?

And, in keeping with that...here's an extra credit question (where did the other dollar go?)

3 men go into a hotel. The man behind the desk says a room is $30 so each man pays $10 and goes to the room.

A while later the man behind the desk realized the room was only $25 so he sent the bellboy to the 3 guys' room with $5. On the way the bellboy couldn't figure out how to split $5 evenly between 3 men, so he gave each man a $1 and kept the other $2 for himself.

This meant that the 3 men each paid $9 for the room, which is a total of $27 add the $2 that the bellboy kept = $29. Where is the other dollar?

Or even better yet, let's put the extra credit question into the modern (Core Curriculum) context...

Three men go into the Mandalay Bay Casino hotel. The man behind the desk says the room is $3,000 so each man pays $1,000 and they all go to the room.

Later the man behind the desk realizes the room is only $2,500 dollars, so he gives the security guard, Jesus Campos, $500 dollars and tells him to go give it to the guys in the room. The security guard runs back to the room to tell his buddies in the room how he just scored 5 more 'Benjamins' off the suckers at the front desk, but one of them freaks out and fires 200 rounds from his AR-15 through the door, hitting Campos in the leg. "But you guys said you'd take care of me!", the security guard shrieks.

The three guys in the room shoot up half of Las Vegas through some broken windows, and then two of them escape after killing the third guy (who was really a putz anyway). The whole time the security guard is hiding, not understanding why his new friends dogged him. At first he's hailed a hero, but then even he disappears (with the $500).

So, here's the question...where's Jesus Campos?

P.S. Make more sense now???

I got all of the answers right and finished the test in under 1 minute, without any struggle at all.

This test is basic mathematical skills, and not a good IQ test. It tests how well I am educated in math and how proficient I am with those acquired skills.

Your IQ is not actually based on how well you are educated in math, or anything.

IQ is actually an attempt to determine how well you can take a novel new situation and create viable solutions for. Anyone with an education can answer education based questions correctly, and so therefore the test is skewed in favor of the mathematically inclined, those trained in this discipline. Those lacking this training will struggle immensely.

However, by presenting a novel situation that requires an inventive/innovative solution, there is no training in the world that can really prepare an individual for this very well. This is the True IQ test, and the only way to pass it is to think your way through that situation and develop a viable solution.

Though experience and education play heavily into a true IQ test and improve your odds, they certainly do not guarantee a successful outcome. And likewise, the inexperienced and uneducated genius still has a good chance (maybe even better so) than the well trained professional at creating a viable solution.

You can call this out-of-the-box thinking, but I'd prefer to just call it "thinking" because all true thinking is out-of-the-box.

I can give you a much better IQ test and rate your responses, but due to the nature of such a thing, I will create a new question (or several questions) for each person that would like to take this test. Be forewarned though, I will be very harsh and unforgiving in my evaluation of your answers. Once you receive my evaluation you will recognize it as being fair and balanced, and if you feel it was unfair than I'd like to know why (and this will improve your score if you can point out my errors in judgment).

In the past few days I have been considering presenting my new IQ evaluation system to the world via writing a new thread discussing and presenting it and it's underlying logic and the historical necessity for the creation of this new system.

Your question appears flawed.

1) Three men pay a total of 3000$ for a room.
2) The security guard returns 500$ saying "he just scored 5 more Benjamins"
3) The security guard calls the men in the room "buddies" as if he is part of the group

- this implies that the guard is one of the 3 men
- how did they score "more" when they were giving all 30 Benjamins away to begin with?
"More" than "what"?

Your IQ test question is irrational and invalid on a logical level, and does not compute.
