First off, this test is absurdly easy. I doubt this is a real Wunderlich test.

Second,what chimps wrote this thing? Question #3, "Paper cells for 21 cents per pad. What will 5 pads cost?" If you're going to create a test to check the intelligence of your subjects, at least get the correct word in your question. ;-7

Finally, I also thought it was pretty common knowledge that linemen were among the smartest in the NFL.

So basically what knapp's saying is this thread is a waste of bandwidth- telling you things you already knew and linking to tests that don't prove anything...

Due to the fact that linemen don't have to exercise NEARLY as much as the other positions, they have more time to study.

That's my theory, and I'm sticking to it.

I though this was old news? :-?

There are a number of different Wunerlich tests available. I didn't look at this one, but it is probably just the sample version they have available, not actual sample questions from the NFL version.

I typed my response pretty fast, but I was referring to what you said, Dream. I should have quoted yours and said something like, "yeah, what gives?" I had just read yours before typing that.

Same, Dream did spark my memory.

I, Canucks_Fantasy, declare Dream_017 is the smarterest person that has ever lived.

I was positive the "cells" thing was a trick to get me to answer it wrong. I agree though, this test had very few questions that required much thought and only about two that required more than a couple seconds of time.

Given that some of these schools turn out kids that are functionally illiterate, they gotta toss 'em a few bones and give them at least a couple questions they have a shot at answering, otherwise the only thing some of them would get right is the space where they have to fill in their name (and some probably have trouble with that even!)!

The fact that you guys were getting scores like that pretty much confirms it...NFL players are dumber than average people. Is anyone surprised by this?

Or maybe the Cafe has people smarter than the average person. The demographics of who ends to visit the Cafe would probably tend towards a higher average IQ and score level. Lots of mathematically minded people, etc.
