    They should make a patience test and just put on stupid questions and base your score on how long you spent answerng them.
    They call it the ASVAB, the armed services vocational aptitude battery. They give you an hour to do six or seven easy science questions. Then 2 nimutes to do 90 single digit math operations (filling in the circle completely). then back to too much time and so on.

    That's sad really.

    One thing i'm convinced of is that a balance exists in every
    human body, either he's smart and has a terrible social life
    or vice versa. Being dumb is usually compensated with something
    else and vice versa.

    How do you explain smart people with good social skills?

    Social skills and intelligents aren't the only things, How about
    someone's physical condition? His looks?

    Sure, fine - I know several people that have good social skills, are really intelligent, are in good shape, and good looking.

    Those where just examples, There are many other things to take
    into account, Like diseases, Bad eye sight, Bad sleeper etc.

    WOW so much for an IQ test.. I agree that it is not acurate.. but some of my friends where so dumb that they could not even answer the most simple questions there.(like the next number in the series etc)... And how do you expect them to be a programmers....(they are studying computer science with me)..

    So i should say that people who can solve most of the questions can think logically and may be program well....

    PS:- In the 126 i got I lost most of my score in the english language since it is not a language i was brought up with but thought at school..

    And any way the image stuff was tuff..

    You're supposed to learn in school not think!
    You can't judge a person by one question he couldnt come up
    with.

    well learn in school.. i agree.. But you guys talk English from the time you were born.. You communicate and converse with english.. But we do that with our native language.. And English is learn in school rather than learn during childhood.. For example in primary schools here it is commom to say "Who is this pencil" if some one finds a lost pencil on the class rooms floor...

    And i agree that you cannot judge a person by the one question he coul not answer.. but dont tell me he cant answer something like

    1,1,2,3,5,8 __

    or even some thing like...
    If A is taller than B and C is shorter than A.... Who is taller among B and C..

    So do you think thes guys can be programmers or for that matter humans who can think logically..(in a way i feel sorry for them..) I had class mates who used to by-heart the number of lines in the program.. They come out of the exam and say

    He:- "hey man! How many line was the 2nd program"
    I say :- "I think it came around 40 lines "
    He:- "Laughs out loud.. You are wrong man.. The program the teacher gave in class was 48 lines"


    So what do you say.. Does this mean that this guy is super intelegent and he just could not answer a few questions...

    I can recommend a few people to be the drums - I think we'd have to have a contest to see who actually gets to hit them with sticks.

    Can I use a sledgehammer instead of sticks? I can pound out a pretty good rhythm with one...
