    I've got a feeling bassists are a clever lot, but how clever?

    http://uk.tickle.com/test/iq/start.html

    Post your result and intellect type below.

    Me? 138, "visionary philosopher"

    You need to register to get the result, but you can use fake details.

    Anyone who buys the detailed report automatically loses 10 points.




    (yes, before anyone recommends it, I have read The Mismeasure of Man and agree with Gould... this is just a bit of fun)

    Yep. :)

    That's one of the interesting things about IQ, it depends on "knowledge", as well as basic capability.

    Someday they'll come up with a test for "basic capability".

    IQ isn't it though, IMO. As you've already suggested, in relation to Gould and so on. :)

    What makes me particularly cynical about this one is the way you can buy detailed report on your results. Nobody's going to pay for a report that says they're dumb.
