Tough cookie this one.

I'm guessing the income box would be ...One pound=2000won... so 2 million a month=12,000 pounds.

The other (profession) I guess you can choose what you like but the education one, at high school level is a biatch.

Mind, I'm a lazy dog don't work until I gotta so....

Ladies and Gentlemen, start your engines.

My cash/cleverness coefficient is 500. I'm a smarty-pants. That's right S-M-R-T.

Wow. Your IQ is as far above the average for your salary level as the scale permits. What are you doing with your life?


Mind you, I wasn't really working last year so the no cash thing probably made my number soar more that anything.

It's official. Your IQ is significantly more powerful than the average for your salary bracket. Demand a pay rise while you still have your faculties.


I had a lot more trouble with the mathetmatical questions and guessed a couple, there should be a time limit as I got the shapes ones quite easily but struggled with a couple of the numbers and I spent a lot more time on the numbers. I'm pretty dissapointed with my score but then it is an intelligence test and not a test of overall knowledge in any specific area, IQ tests I think are more about testing your ability to do IQ tests.

My excuse for the dismal performance is due I think to the fact that I drank half a bottle of wine whilst cooking and eating my dinner! And did the test whilel doing this so I guess I was distracted.

Anyway I'l show my boss the result and tell him I want that payraise Wink

What it means

If the coefficient is zero, you are paid the average for your IQ, if it is a positive number you are paid under the average and if it's a minus number you are paid over the average. Results are approximate, based on your IQ and salary bands.

To work out your IQ, study the table below.

Correct answers IQ band
0-7 < 90
8-10 90-99
11-13 100-109
14-16 110-119
17-25 120+

DAMMIT! Thought I was smarter than that!

I checked in with a 19 out of 25.

Apparently I should be doing better than a hagwon.

Probably coulda done better if I wasn't so tired. Laughing I gave up on a couple of the numbers ones and chucked out one of the shapes (couldn't be bothered).

Ah well. I always knew I wasn't being paid enough, but I love my job anyway...

20 right and a thingibob score of 10.

Was nervous about doing that test, but it turns out I should actually ask for a raise- who knew?

18 of 25, though it seems to be a test for those good with numbers and spacial awareness, and gives little credence for other skills.

How does being mathematically adept make me a better teacher? Sure, I may be Clever Dan (scored 19/25), but I still forget to take my brain medication and sometimes I eat popcorn for dinner because I can't be bothered to cook.
