22.9 % > average, but probably < average Carpe Diem reader.
25, or 40% over average. Booyah! Guess all the Jeopardy-watching pays off.
Pretty silly - rather US centric. A better question - Who was the Australian prime minister at the end of WWII?
How is this an IQ test? BTW I got 26.
how is it related to IQ or being smart?
31.9% smarter than average! Like Homer Simpson sang... "I am so smart. S-M-R-T."
24. I consistently missed the ones on modern culture (e.g. the car, the beer, the song).Guess I'm just to nerdy to be REALLY smart.
51% Smarter with a score of 28.
26. I missed the drugs and alcohol questions.
29missed the my chemical romance song (and i guessed on mitsubishi, but was correct)those seem like pretty age specific questions.i have never even heard of my chemical romance.that said, this is nothing like an IQ test.i worked on developing intelligence tests in college. this had a big "trivia" component. (carlsberg, song writers, car manufacturers, and other such nonsense)it had no analogies nor any spatial relations or other basic staples of intelligence testing.knowledge is not intelligence.this test is pretty worthless.
