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.

Heh, I got 96% on verbal and then second best on Interpersonal ;) which is odd because I'm a relatively quiet person and I always observe people so I thought I would have scored higher on visual. Or maybe I just missed the entire point. And I don't get the 400% thing, why not just use 100% instead? The mind boggles.

The mind, it does boggle. And perhaps the interpersonal thing works because you observe people? Or... well, the test only has 20 questions, how deeply can it have analyzed us?
