For work Thursday I got to take a series of intelligence and aptitude tests.

My boss is the son of the owner of one of the countries leading corporate testing and training agencies.

I spent 5 hours in a little bitty room filling in little circles with a pencil or doing the computer equivalent.

There were a total of 8 different tests, from standard aptitude to sales and marketing.

My writing fingers cramped.

Yesterday evening the boss came by and mentioned the results.

It seems his Dad wants to know if he could explain them to me. Rarely do they see results like this.

Like what?

Upper 90 percentile in most intelligence areas.

And it was an off day.

So yeah, I'll claim the title Supra Genius.

Just like a Reed Richards... a Bruce Banner... a Tony Stark... A Wile E. Coyote... Dr. Horrible... Lex Luther... a secondary character on Big Bang Theory.

Now, it is only logical that all my posts be regarded as perfect, and anyone disagreeing with me should immediately realize that I am right because of my vast and superior brain power.

You may bow down before me. I won't mind.

So I guess what you're trying to say is that intelligence testing doesn't work.

Hedwig beat me to it, what's the name of this company? That way I know to never trust any test results from them. Clearly their tests are insurmountably flawed [Wink]

All those guys you listed? They're fictional.

I thought you might want to know.

When I read "Supra Genius" as your thread title I immediately thought you had purchased a Toyota Supra and done something amazing with it.


Unless......You work for Toyota?

Shouldn't it be logical to regard, not all, but 90% of your posts to be perfect?

I'm going to file this in the '10% faulty' column. [Smile]

Well if he took eight different tests and was in the 90 percentile in each it is a bit more uncommon than that.

Upper 90's...as in 97 or 98 or more likely 99.9999999. I'll find out more next week.

The company is called Psycho-Something. Top rate. Geniuses like me agree.

Not necessarily. Most intelligence tests show strong correlations with each other.

I used to take a lot of stock in intelligence tests. I don't think it was good for me in the long run, because I could never live up to the super-genius they said I would be.

I'd like to take this opportunity to offer a rebuttal.
