Sharing this on the off-chance that you haven’t already seen it
Interesting. I got 1 and 3 easily but I still can’t see 2 and 4 at all even knowing what they’re supposed to be.
May have something to do with autism and anime/cartoons.
The two I failed at have much more detail.
That actually matches the IQ my achievement level would predict, 109 [note: OP says 106 but Pumpkin Person has since renormed the test upward by 3 points], which is also approximately what Cooijmans said was the approximate handicap of Asperger’s (comparable to a 30-point IQ handicap, being blind, or being born missing both legs).
I took it two years ago. I can’t remember whether I got 1 and 4, or just 1. PP adjusted the norm upward by 3 points.
I’m a currently unemployed sales clerk, an occupation which is entirely consistent with an I.Q. of 93
Interesting that our experiences both show this. I’ll probably do a post on it to introduce the idea.
I’d certainly be interested in reading that
I came across this essay on Napoleon a few weeks ago. The section titled ‘Narcissism & Autistic Memory’ may be relevant
Unfortunately, I don’t have this autistic quality. My memory is in general very poor (especially for biographical information and dates- remembering my zip code requires an effort of will), except in my current area of narrow, obsessive interest where it takes on this effortless, near-perfect character.
