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%).

May 19, 2020 - 4:39pm

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 - 4:55pm

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...

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

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.

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.

I don't know... Yeah. Almost definitely yes.

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

Be excellent to each other, and party on, dudes.

I can't believe Covid has gotten to the point where I'm taking an "intelligence" test online and posting my results on WSO... fuck

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.

Will update my computer soon and leave Incognito so I will disappear forever. How did I achieve Neanderthal by trolling? Some people are after me so need to close account for safety.

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

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.

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.

May 21, 2020 - 12:51am

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???
