The Handy IQ Test!
If you have the time and the desire, take this IQ test.
After all, it's free (just like your time!). And it was developed by PhD's!
Here was my report, but I'm not telling you my number:
John, you are a Visionary Philosopher.
This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways.
Big Deal. In other words, I'm OK at a lot things.
I'd parlay my intelligence into a big salary, but "Visionary Philosophers" are finding it hard to get jobs these days. I think "Visionary Philosopher," and I see a bearded guy strumming guitar, singing love songs to his bong. He doesn't have a job.
They compare me to Plato. They really know how to butter a guy up before they insult his intelligence:
Your full IQ report is only $14.95!
Perhaps they should have done it this way:
John, you're as dumb as Homer Simpson. Since you just got paid, surely you wouldn't mind paying $80 bucks for a fake-o plaque telling the world that you successfully completed an IQ test.
