12/13 I guessed on at least a third of em.

Only 1% scores higher and gets em all.

I think my wife is correct when she tells me that I have entirely too much time on my hands, and I am obsessed with international affairs.



The Dow industrial average got me

Seriously I tackled this test like any standardized test. It's a riddle begging to be heard.

Each test leaves impressionable marks of it's creator. Just figure out the style and apply the contextual information towards it's logical conclusion.

You don't have to know much to test out.

Okay, okay, who cheated? I mean, come on, you're online, google is right there...

Important point: It's not what you know, it's knowing how to find the answers you're looking for. I probably would've scored a 3 if not for google. 12 out of 13.

I'm British and given the subject of the some of the questions, I think 9/13 was pretty good



Edit: although looking now at the answers, I'm a bit embarassed I didn't manage 11/13

I didn't cheat. To me it is a test and am honor bound to take it as honestly as I can if I agree to take it.

But I would have liked to know what answer I missed.

6/13

Oh well. I guess this is a decent score for a twenty-one-year-old college student who doesn't follow politics or the news regularly. I feel so un-American lol.

I must have clicked to fast. i didn't see that.

But hazarding a guess would be that I got the Yahho! question wrong and possibly the graph.

I guess I have to retest.

Even though I guessed, I picked her correctly.

She's kinda hot, lol.

I got 12 out of 13 correct. Scored better than 96% of the general public, below 1% and the same as 3%. (and according to the posted results so far, better than most right-wingers here on ATS)


Unfortunately, I missed the only one that I had to guess at, which was the population pyramid. For the most part, I thought the questions were no-brainers.
