IQ test thing

Just, well, because...
BrightonRegencyLabourSupporter: I'm not sure I accept a test that says I'm less intelligent.. everyone, Neil?

Your IQ Is 130

Your Logical Intelligence is Below Average

Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius

Your Mathematical Intelligence is Genius

Your General Knowledge is Exceptional

I agree with the commenters in his post, the logical question isn't actually logical. Also, IQ is a piss-poor method of measuring ability; I score high on IQ tests (higher than this normally), but I have to take my car to a mechanic to change a lightbulb in the headlight; completely beyond me.

But, y'know, Genius, Genius, Exceptional, dodgy question. Can't really argue with that ;-)

(Yeah, I know, I don't do thse things here, but, y'know, I've been to the dentists and become an uncle in one day, you expect substantive argument?)

Congratulations on your new uncle status. Hope the tooth thing got sorted out.

Hmmm. For some reason my PDA don't like blogger.

No offense Mat, but is this sort of stuff (along with the baby) really suitable for this blog? One of the things I really like about reading Not Little England is that it's about issues, not about a person, and I honestly think that stuff like this devalues it.

Some stuff, like the political compass memes or 'This event happened to me which relates to current politics', is reasonable crossover, but if people want to 'get to know the soul of the writer better' or somesuch, they can wander over to your LJ.

You are, of course, correct Pink, and normally I don't do this sort of thing at all; just take yesterday as an abberation.

I've had writers block for a bit, and it was an easy post to do. Also, I don't actually link to my journal (yet) although that will change with the current template change I'm working on...
