Baaaah ...

OK, OK ... I wasn't going to do this becuase it still doesn't seem to have a point to it ... but after looking behind the cut of a half a dozen entries on my FL last night to find this damn quizmeme, I figured I'd take the stupid test just to make it go away!


Your brain: 40% interpersonal, 140% visual, 60% verbal, and 160% mathematical!
Congratulations on being 400% smart! Actually, on my test, everyone is. The above score breaks down what kind of thinking you most enjoy doing. A score above 100% means you use that kind of thinking more than average, and a score below 100% means you use it less. It says nothing about how good you are at any one, just how interested you are in each, relatively. A substantial difference in scores between two people means, conclusively, that they are different kinds of thinkers.

Matching Summary: Each of us has different tastes. Still, I offer the following advice, which I think is obvious:



  1. Don't date someone if your interpersonal percentages differ by more than 80%.
  2. Don't be friends with someone if your verbal percentages differ by more than 100%.
  3. Don't have sex with someone if their math percentage is over 200%.




My test tracked 4 variables How you compared to other people your age and gender:

Am I cranky? Sure! This particular quizmeme has pissed me off since it appeared because it doesn't give you a fucking CLUE about what it's supposed to mean ... it chops your brain up into a set of percentages (which total 400%) then tells you how that compares to others who've taken the test ... heck, they could be listing finger length, eye color and ear diameter, etc. and do the same, with just as much (little) meaning (and I'd be pissed off if I'd scored over 200% on math, since one of the only three "analysis points" is to tell people to not have sex with anybody scoring in that range)! Bleh. Why am I wasting more time on this crap? I can't believe how many people were fascinated by this.

And ... what's the purpose of that "brain banner"? ... I think it's the same on every entry ... are they just using it to track who's posted their results (or do they simply like burning up their own damn bandwidth)?
