IQ testing

Stefan Tilkov,

Mark has been taking The Classic IQ Test, so I did, too. I scored 136 and also was classified as an alleged Visionary Philosopher. So does this actually mean anything? I have no idea. The only thing I can remember about IQ testing is that there was some number (68?) that sets the lower boundary as the IQ you need to peel a banana.

Well, the test seemed suspiciously easy, and as vowe’s comment thread suggested, it’s most likely a scam. At least I wasn’t dumb enough to send them money ;-)

Freaky, that’s exactly the number I got too. Perhaps we can peel two bananas simultaneously?

LOL - that’d be impressive, indeed ;-)
