clever boy

I checked my friend Richard’s weblog today – he had a thing about a British national IQ test which the BBC ran yesterday. I don’t think I’ve ever taken an IQ test, so of course I was curious to find out what my score is. Turns out I’m at 130 which I was kind of pleased with. I wonder if it’s better or worse because of my slight alcoholic overindulgence last night.

It would have been easy to cheat on some of the harder questions – memorising addresses would have been a cinch if I’d typed the information into a Word document or something, and the arithmetic would also have been easier if I’d just used a calculator – but I just managed to hold myself back. There wouldn’t have been much point in doing the test if I was faking it, would there? Although maybe I could have got extra points for initiative.
