How Smart Are You?

Ever taken an online IQ test? I've taken two over the years. On the first one, I scored amazingly high. Stratosphere high. I was very proud of my brain. Until my inbox overflowed with spam. For the second test, I had a squirming, wriggling baby on my lap. A baby pulling my hair, thumping the computer keys. So, after one question, I exited, figuring I'd return when I could take the test in peace. Instead...

I got an email informing me I was a "moron" with an intelligence quotient between 50 and 69. Which, when you think about it, isn't too, too bad considering I'd only answered one question.

Here's a link to a Multiple Intelligence Test for Children.

I took it.

It did not say I was a genius.

It did not say I was a moron.

It said I should be a novelist.

Ha! Finally. An IQ test that works.

That is so fabulous! What great timing!! I think I'm too chicken to take it. If it told me I was a moron right now, I wouldn't take it well. :)

Fun IQ test. Hey, it told me I was a writer too. Guess I better get to work. :-)

Bravo and thanks for the hope your story offers! I've being using "unpub" with my name for so long, I feel like it's my albatross---maybe I should use it in a story. I've read Rachel's blog for a long time; she's a gem.

Did Drew tell you that I had the class do this multiple intelligences quiz? I also have some other good ones. My personal favorite is the Winnie the Pooh one, and it's not just a bunch of silliness. It's interesting! Ask Drew who he is (he should remember because it helped him choose his career for the career unit).

Hi Cameron! Drew said he was Eeyore. Do you have a link for the Winnie the Pooh quiz? Sounds very fun!!

I only have it in print form at school, so remind me to make a copy when I see you this week. I was Christopher Robin, Lyn was Eeyore, and Alisa was Piglet!
