You got 18 questions right out of a possible 25. This gives you a cash/cleverness coefficient of...

10
It's official. Your IQ is significantly more powerful than the average for your salary bracket. Demand a pay rise while you still have your faculties.

What it means

If the coefficient is zero, you are paid the average for your IQ, if it is a positive number you are paid under the average and if it's a minus number you are paid over the average. Results are approximate, based on your IQ and salary bands.

To work out your IQ, study the table below.

Correct answers IQ band
0-7 < 90
8-10 90-99
11-13 100-109
14-16 110-119
17-25 120+

Wow. Your IQ is as far above the average for your salary level as the scale permits. What are you doing with your life?


hmm and I'm taking a pay cut to do teaching :lol:

I'd be interested to see what the answers were - some of the number ones got me stumped and I would like to see what they say for the shapes too.

Some of the number patterns caught me out; I used to be exceptionally good at Maths too :(

venom must have thought the salary bands were in dollars and not pounds, he'd clearly be towards the bottom of the scale

I got the pounds part right. I'm in the lower middle part of the scale.

I had a look and thought "ugh, looks like maths" and then didn't bother.

They should do a test where you are asked to create music or art or something for us "non university material" people.

I know, it's odd isn't it...I got 10...but I don't think there is that much of a correlation between intelligence and income...how much are Jade Goody and the Beckhams worth? I rest my case :D

Seeing as there is an established relationship between maths and music...

...what was the question again? :confused:

hey i went to Uni and I am shit at maths. If they asked me to prepare a short lesson on the influence of modernism or give a speech on African American women's literature I'd be laughing. I could possibly knock up an oil painting, but maths? Nay.

Provost Harrison

and what did physics teach you about life????

Provost Harrison

Not a lot, I'm a chemist :p I have just used my maths to calculate my mother's tax problems out though. Beat that :p

The Norks

I may not be able to use maths, but at least I got laid at Uni :lol:

I think I have worked a grand total of about a week this year, which reminds me - I have to sign up to get paid for going to U2 and REM...:bounce:

Provost Harrison
23-06-2005, 20:44:10
Oh yeah, it's a right f**king laugh. Of course I'm going to be sensitive about it when every time I say something you don't like you try and use it as ammunition against me. It's pathetic...

The Norks
23-06-2005, 21:02:04
PH, please do try and name one other occasion when I have EVER said anything even similar? YOu won't be able to because I haven't. In fact I dont think I've ever made a joke at your expense before.
When have you and I even disagreed about anything? You've never said anything 'i dont like', so I dont know what the fuck you're referring to.
I said it as a lighthearted joke, and if you dont like a bit of gentle ribbing, frankly you're in the wrong place because everyone has their shit joked about on here.

Now take some feminax, and come back down to earth maths whizz.

The Norks
23-06-2005, 21:10:17
I'm sorry...that was too harsh.
I didn't mean to offend you, but I think you've taken it the wrong way. Can we kiss and make up please?

Provost Harrison
23-06-2005, 22:43:09
*kiss*

I'm sorry too, I just find it an immense embarrassment and a big gaping hole in my life (and self esteem). "You" was meant more at a rant at people rather than anyone in particular. It's more myself I get angry with for it getting to this point than actually anyone in particular.

The Norks
24-06-2005, 00:46:30
*kiss*

there is no law that says you have to sink the pink torpedo by age 25, or 35, or even 45 (although frankly if we get to 45 and you still havent, I'll feel honour bound to put you out of your misery ;) ). You know Lisa Kudrow (of Friends fame)? She didnt have sex till she was 32. Plenty of people have valid reasons for abstaining. Its only a problem if you think it is. Curiously I would have thought that handled the right way, you could turn it into a pulling tecnique lol. I know women who specialise in shagging boy virgins. In fact you could be using it as a line for the next ten years quite successfully I reckon- people love to tread in the newly fallen snow. See- turn those lemons into lemonade!

It isn't ambiguous. It marks you wrong if you answer that they cannot be the same. The real bastard is the triangular one, where it can't be the same because the angles are slightly different.

I got 23/25 the first time. As I lack a salary, it is somewhat irrelevant, but it appears I should be earning far more than I ever actually will.

Strange. Everything seemed way too easy except for page 2 with the 3-D shapes. I had no clue there and basically guessed a lot.

I like how Nork apologizes after she was too harsh. Like she got to be super mean so she wants to end everything before someone says something really nasty to her.

accusing a science geek of not getting laid at uni ranks amongst the least offensive things i've heard on CG

the fact that PH flipped out and started crying is his problem

The Norks

well I didnt think I was *that offensive* but I thought I was insensitive.

And Venom- you dont know me very well if you think I'd back down from something just so people wouldnt say something horrible to me.

you heinous fat fuckstick

No shit, most questions were the standard pattern finding ones that you always see in this kind of tests. And like IW, I have no current salary but I won't even come close to earning the amount I should according to this test.

I think we can conclude that we are all too lazy to get a job fitting for our IQ.

It doesn't factor laziness :)
