but... but... it's a PERCENT! *flails*

(from meg_tdj)

I took this quiz hoping it would explain why it drove me bonkers that 100% is an average and not a total. I'm not sure it did, since it didn't have a category for "insanity intelligence", but it was still amusing, yay.

Your brain: 200% interpersonal, 20% visual, 80% verbal, and 100% mathematical!

Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy
doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than
average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing
about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:

  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.

My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

I am concerned that my verbal score is so comparatively low, given that I am meant to be a linguist and all. The fact that I only spend 20% (or, well, five percent, since we're actually going out of a total of four hundred percent) of my brain on visual memory handily explains how I'm always terrified, when picking up friends or family members at the airport, that I will somehow have forgotten what they look like and be unable to identify them in a crowd.

Back to bed now. Joy sadhana tomorrow.

edit: K, I was going to be "amused", but I clicked "aggravated" by mistake, and that expression of Sheppard's is too good to pass up. Am now really going back to bed before am disowned for inanity.
