True to the title, "a friggin genius." That score puts you in the top 3% or so.

I had a 140.

It's the pattern memory that gets me. I think I aced everything else, but I just can't for the life of me remember those yellow, blue, and white blocks by looking at them for 10 seconds.

Actually, I'm guilty, I did not read the entire thing. It is however, an interesting retraction to your first.

It's not a retraction, it's a clarification. How are you not getting this? Perhaps you should take the IQ test.

The difference lies in memorizing historical facts and ANALYZING historical events. If you're analyzing historical events, then you're learning lessons that you can apply to the present day. If you're memorizing the dates of civil war battles, then you're adding no value to anything.

This test gets after your knowledge (ie MEMORIZATION) of historical fact. As some have said, there is room for some process of elimination, but in the end it's a fact check. All you have to do is not be a retard and be capable of reading a textbook for 3 days, and you can ace this test.

In short, doing well on this "civics" test says nothing more than you can read.

152, but that doesn't really test how smart you are either, since you can learn those things pretty easily too... most use a similar format.
