Quiz: A Quick and Dirty IQ Test

Everyone seems to be doing this. Most recently Zen and Ruth.

My result is wrong though. I guessed the nickel and dime question and all the General Knowledge questions. Really my General Knowledge (as measured by American-centric IQ tests) is way below average and I am usually fairly average at math.

PS If you don't answer any questions you get an IQ of 60.

Your IQ Is 120

Your Logical Intelligence is Genius
Your Verbal Intelligence is Genius
Your Mathematical Intelligence is Exceptional
Your General Knowledge is Average

A Quick and Dirty IQ Test

Never underestimate (or overestimate) the amount of intelligence it takes to ignore the questions and simply click "submitt".

I'm a little suspicious about the quiz: I think there are more Hindi speakers than Arabic. The quiz thinks otherwise.

I got fooled by the nickels and dimes question too. In hindsight, they were talking about volume as much as value, which makes the question trickier for non-Americans.

Lucky I can fall back on my philosophy quiz results. Its all meaningless!
Dammit, only 135 (Genius, Genius, Genius, Extraordinary). On another online IQ test, I scored a 160! Blogged here: http://ddhead.blogspot.com/2004/11/incontrovertible-proof-that-iq-tests.html
Haha! Yes not doing the quiz in the first place might be the most intelligent thing to do! Especially given all the other things I could be doing (thanks for the reminder David ;p)

Are nickels and dimes significantly different sizes?
dimes are much smaller than nickels
How can I see the answers to the quiz? I can only score a 140 and it says my logical intelligence is below average. All other areas are genius. I really want to know which answers I missed! It's bugging me!
