When Terrelle Pryor's Wonderlic scores were circulating in the news, it got me thinking. You always hear about the Wonderlic test, but you never see one. At least I hadn't. So I went in search of a test. I couldn't find the official test, however, I did find a sample test.
The official Wonderlic is a 50 question 12-minute test. What we have here, courtesy of WalterFootball.com, is a 20 question version. So, give yourself five minutes and then mulitiply your correct answer(s—I hope) by 2.5.
Note: I scored a 96. If you're wondering how I got a 96 out of a possible 50, don't bother. You have to score a 96 to be smart enough to figure it out.
According to Wiki, average intelligence equates to 20. The average score for a chemist is 31, for a football player its 21, a warehouse worker's average is 14.
The answer key is at the bottom. Set your timer and jump over to take the test.
The boy plays for the Tigers. All the players on the Tigers wear white sneakers. The boy wears white sneakers.
Ben greeted Beth. Beth greeted Bob. Ben did not greet Bob.
Note - I recently received an e-mail from Kristin P from Oregon. She's a print designer, and she had an alternate answer:
Anyway, when I saw the answer to #10, I knew I had to disagree with the "mathematical" solution of 17 pages. Any good print designer would know the immediately PRACTICAL answer to this was 20 pages because 2400 x 20 = 48000 then you intersperse one page worth of subheads in the larger font size, change the tracking and kearning as necessary and make it all fit!!!
Hey, I can't argue with a print designer. 20 pages it is.
