    You gotta time yourself too, thats the catch with that test. I took it and only answered 32 questions.

    This can't be actual questions... I mean, I just got a 40. And I also have to say that it has no bearing on being a player, shoot, does $.10 a ft. of rope matter to me when I see a blitz coming and know I need to get down or dump it off to my back...Uhh, no !!
    Oh, ok, then maybe 6 pads for $1.05 will help me understand that zone coverage...no, damn....
    Oh well, I guess I picked the wrong career, as I should be an NFL QB...

    I must have cheated off of Nitro. I also got a 37.5.

    I can now sleep easy knowing with 100% certainty that I am neither as rich nor as dumb as Vince Young. What a trade off.

    There were only 20 questions.

    I got a 30. Don't know if I should brag about that or the 1900 I got on the SAT.

    The original test is 50 questions in 12 minutes. Not many people answer all 50.

    Congrats. I would brag about the 1900 since it isn't a sample.

    I will probably do the exercise at some point, but at the end of the day, regardless of an impressive test score, Vince still has eight figures in his income and I have five.:)

    Oh, heck, curiousity got the best of me earlier than later and I scored 37.5.

    much like getting a few answers wrong on the SAT doesn't determine if you'll be a good lawyer or not, the same goes with the wonderlic. it's all apart of the overall process.

    also i got a 32.5

    I got a 45. I'm surprised some people do so poorly on this. Mario Manningham got a 6. How do some of these guys remain academically eligible? Preferential treatment?

    Go with the 1900 on the SAT. That's a good score.

    I got 18 of the 20 right on the sample Wunderlich; 45 for what its worth.
    :thinking:

    I got a 27.5. I didnt read one of the questions correctly and that cost me. I skipped the one about the 48,000 words and the missing letter threw me off a bit.

    I got a 30 (32.5 if agreeing with the print designer counts).

    Sometimes I think this board is made up of Mensa members. I was always the "curve buster" in college and I've almost always been the highest in intelligence and similar tests in my career. But here, I feel like I belong on the short bus.

    Then again...in those other situations, somebody else was doing the grading. :hmmm:
