Are you a genius?

I already know I am, and I’m not even done with this test (my boss gave me the link! honest!). I’ve gotten 24 25 26 of them so far in between tasks at work. I’ll stop at the end of the work day. Take a crack at it. Remember, you only need 19 to be a genius!

UPDATE: I’ve figured out another 4 and was told the answer to one more. So I know the answers to 31 of them. I’m a little disappointed that some of these last ones aren’t that clever or interesting. One of them I completely guessed on, and it ended up being this obscure fact. So, far 33 is my favorite by far.

I will look up the remaining 2 answers Monday morning. I just really hope the answers make me say “Yeah, I wouldn’t have gotten that” instead of “Doh! I should have known!”

I had a lot of feedback not in the comments about this test. A lot of people said they really liked it. So, I’m working on set of puzzles on my own. Maybe I’ll post them if I feel they’re good enough.

UPDATE: Well, it was a split. Sorta. One I probably would have been able to get eventually. The other I actually guessed half of but gave up on it because I didn’t know enough of the appropriate parlance. If only I was more informed about a certain pastime . . . Anyway, I’m still a genius.

  1. Kinda fun 🙂

    I know I’m more “non-linguistic pattern recognition” kind of guy though, so the test is discriminating against me 😦

  3. It didn’t give me the correct answer on the water freezes one until I hit backspace a couple of times….:?: There’s another one I’m darn sure I have right it’s not giving me an answer to. According to it, though, I am genius :).
