Just took it, I'm super high in spatial memory (rotating stuff) and okay in verbal and numeric memory (thanks adhd). But I really, really suck at face recognition and planning lmaoooo. Bloody limeys probably think I'm some kinda sociopath now.

I took it.

Got max on 3D Spatial Reasoning (Top 5%) and Mental Rotation (Top 5%).

Mid Level at Spacial Intelligence (20-30%), Spatial Working Memory (10-20%), Verbal Reasoning (10-20%) and Verbal Comprehension (20-30%).

Average at Short Term Memory (bottom 50%), Verbal Working Memory (40-50%), Attention (40-50%) and Emotional Discrimination (40-50%).

Below average at Medium-term Memory (Bottom 50%) and Planning (Botton 50%).

I'm thinking a lot of the people on this forum will score the same since we're all drawn to similar industries.

May 20, 2020

Very similar results for me

I don't need a test to tell you I'm pretty fucking dumb.

Prospective memory (short-term memory): bottom 50%

Spatial intelligence: 30%-20% range

Planning: bottom 50%

Verbal working memory: 30%-20% range

Spatial working memory: 20%-10% range

Verbal reasoning: bottom 50% (not native in English so screw this part haha)

Attention: 40%-30% range

Recognizing faces: bottom 50%

Verbal comprehension: bottom 50% (again, not native)

Mental rotation: top 5%

Spatial reasoning: bottom 50%

Mid term memory: 30%-40%

So yeah I am pretty average

This thing was a fuckin marathon - honestly tired me out...nonetheless, got top 5% in spatial reasoning and mental rotation (just found a simple way to focus on 3 block and make sure they had the same pattern, anyone else?) and scored average/below in memory exercises.

May 19, 2020

Yeah I had a similar strategy and got top percentile in that. When it got to the survey questions I just picked a random choice . Then it asked "Did you try to answer these questions honestly?"

NOPE lol.

Same lol that was way too fucking long

May 20, 2020

That's what I did. It took me like 3 seconds for each one.

May 19, 2020

top percentile (2d rotation)
top 5% digital span, spatial span

Worst ones were 3D rotation and emotional discrimination

Seems like I fit the stereotype perfectly...

Array

May 19, 2020

Top 5% in verbal working memory, spatial working memory, mental rotation, 3D spatial reasoning

10-20% in spatial intelligence, planning, emotional discrimination

20-30% in medium memory, verbal comprehension, target detection, verbal reasoning

30-40% in prospective memory

Clearly I'm not great with words

Array

May 19, 2020

above average in EVERYTHING?

Impressive

Ah thanks man I defo got lucky with some of the word ones tho

Only one I got below 50% on was emotional discrimination. Life of a quant.

To fit the stereotype perfectly you would be wearing coca cola glasses (and hence done poorly on 3D rotation) also lol

I have taken the Stanford-Binet intelligence test before and got 132, which I think is the threshold for Mensa. To me this doesnt really mean anything. I've taken other tests that put me in the range of 110-125.

I've met a couple/few Mensa people -- -arrogant fucks.

May 21, 2020

I feel personally attacked. How can you judge me just because I'm a Mensa member, which makes me smarter than 98% of the population? Despite having a degree from a top university, the fact that I make more money than most and date way hotter women, it does not make me arrogant at all. I'm probably one of the most humble guys I know. I'm like THE most down to earth human being.

May 19, 2020

Did best in verbal reasoning, verbal working memory, and mental rotation. Did worst in emotional discrimination.

Should I be taking this test? I don't want to feel dumb in front of you all or realize I am dumber than a sack of roasted peanuts...

This test is not reliable, right? Can I put this on my resume if I do well? Do you think people will recognize this test from "Prospect in IB-M&A" and think I am well-versed to prevail in the field of Investment Banking? Please tell me.

I think you know what I am doing.

1 or 2 of those verbal comprehension words I've never seen before in my life. Is it because the British emphasize a different English vocabulary or because I'm an idiot

Thought the vocab was pretty tough too as someone who usually does really well on the verbal section.

May 20, 2020

is this actually an intelligence test or is it one of those psych experiments where its actually testing for something else? like reaction/response to getting right/wrong answers, subtle biases, patience, etc.?

May 20, 2020

Top-5% - Spatial Working Memory; Mental Rotation; 3D Spatial Reasoning
10-20% - Attention
20-30% - Spatial Intelligence; Verbal Working Memory; Verbal Comprehension
30-40% - Planning
40-50% - Emotional Discrimination
Bottom 50% - Short-term memory; Medium-term memory; Verbal Reasoning

Interesting test, and I'm curious how the scoring contributes to the algorithm. For the word memory tests I got 20/24 and 19/24, so kinda surprised how that score was reflected as bottom-50%. On the other hand, I messed up on the spatial working memory test quite a bit so not sure how I got top-5% there.

May 21, 2020

Interesting how all of us score top percentile in mental mapping / working memory. I wonder how that's reflected on the job - guess we all make pretty slides from scratch?

Not surprising we're below average in memory / emotional discrimination (obvs). Surprising we're all only slightly above average in planning / attention.

That took way too long.

Short-term memory - Bottom 50%
Spatial Intelligence - 20 - 30%
Planning - 30 - 40%
Verbal Working Memory - 30% - 40%
Spatial Working Memory - 10 - 20%
Verbal Reasoning - 40-50%
Attention - 10-20%
Emotional Discrimination - Bottom 50%
Verbal Comprehension - 40 - 50%
Mental Rotation - Top 5%
3D Spatial Reasoning - Top 5%
Medium term memory - Bottom 50%

(I think my memory were bottom 50% cause I may have not seen the first couple of words that popped up...)

What use is 3D Spatial Reasoning and Mental Rotation???
