I think you will prefer this one .... no math ;o)

Check the link below and take 5 minutes to fill the questionnaire. He
is starting his own business and needs your ideas and views. There's
20 bottle of organic wines to be won! He's a nice chap and you can
trust his genuine call. Please forward it to anybody you know.
Thanks )

No, Alan. Give it a try. It's fun.

Only thing is, it would be nice to know how we did

I echo that - I know I did aweful in the memory part - testing postal
addresses - but would like to know.
Have passed the link to all my family and friends - the choice to partake is
up to them.

I agree. I gave my email address, but no results yet! Alan, if you want to
do it why don't you just select the nearest equivalent qualification. No-one
will know!!

I don't know when the results will be revealed. But knowing my younger
children's tendency to leave things till the last minute. . .

Quite so. I've consulted the quizmaster about Alan's case, and he says
it doesn't matter: "just put the nearest"; but confesses that an "Other"
box would have been sensible. I don't know from this whether we can
safely deduce that the experiment has nothing at all to do with people's
paper level of education, or that more than one thing is being
investigated, so that a few outliers* in each category are only to be
expected.
*Or, indeed, outright liars: I had to resist a temptation to go
fictitious so he couldn't identify me!

Do have a go if you still feel like it, Alan: it _is_ fun, and the
extra stats would be appreciated. Though a tenured professor at Another
University did claim she had to go and have a lie-down afterwards.

No, I'm serious, I didn't have anything which fitted the selection.

And there wasn't the option of 'none of the above'!

Well, technically, so am I....so I told a fib! (Then I e-mailed Mike
to tell him so!) ;-)


I did try that, and got started, but after a short while the questions got
far to difficult for me, so I had to give up!

I'm exactly the same - postal addresses - badly let me down.
I to have passed it to everyone I know, at work today one of my colleagues
said thanks for the e-mail - his wife is going to tackle it - she is a
university lecturer - midwifery i believe and then pass it on to others
hopefully he will have a good responce.

I'm afraid I found myself arguing with the questions
The wheelbarrows looked identical to me, i.e. a & B looked alike and C &
D looked alike, and I couldn't work out the paper folding patterns as
none of them worked accurately with some of the shapes

Still very interesting half and hour - I'll pass it on

Many thanks. I'm not convinced all the patterns did display absolutely
as intended, but one always argues with the questions on these
occasions! The wheelbarrows gave me pause, too, till I spotted the
differences.

Do we get the results of the individual tests automatically Mike?
Haven't heard anything yet.
