If you like to test yourself, here’s one that’s kind of interesting. It doesn’t take too long, either.
I don’t mean to brag (actually, yes I do) but I got 31 out of 33 correct, which is pretty decent. And one of the two I got wrong had no truly correct answers, IMHO.
Are you more knowledgeable than the average citizen? The average score for all 2,508 Americans taking the following test was 49%; college educators scored 55%. Can you do better? Questions were drawn from past ISI surveys, as well as other nationally recognized exams.
Fascinating. “College educators” are only slightly better than the average citizen—and the average citizen is not very knowledgeable, because although some of the questions on the test are somewhat difficult, most are not.
Explains a lot.
