Anyway, that was not the point of the post... it was to merely point out that the wonderlic the NFL prospects get is not meant to test intelligence
Yes it is. I listened to an interview with Brown right after he was drafted and the reporters were asking him why he did so poorly on his Wonderlic test and he said it was because it was stuff that had nothing to do with football. He even gave an example that went something like this: Jim is 20 years old. If Mary is 5 years younger than Jim, then Jim gets older...........
So yes its an intelligence test. And yes, Brown is porbably a huge moron. But yes, I\'m glad he\'s on our team because he doesn\'t need to know how old Jim is to dominate Julius Peppers.

I REALLY don\'t care what anyone thinks about the \'wonderic\' test.

We\'ve had this discussion about 500-times over the past few years.

Many articles have been posted concerning about what the \'wonderlic\' test is designed for.

Mr Charlie Wonderlic, in an earlier article, stated that the \'wonderlic\' test is NOT designed to test intelligence.

Furthermore ... there\'s not just ONE wonderlic test. The test is changed depending on what they want to test for.

It\'s basically designed to fit the job the candidate is applying for.

11. In printing an article of 48,000 words, a printer decides to use two sizes of type. Using the larger type, a printed page contains 1,800 words. Using smaller type, a page contains 2,400 words. The article is allotted 21 full pages in a magazine. How many pages must be in smaller type?
13. Three individuals form a partnership and agree to divide the profits equally. X invests $9,000, Y invests $7,000, Z invests $4,000. If the profits are $4,800, how much less does X receive than if the profits were divided in proportion to the amount invested?
I will admit that most of these questions are easy, but these two, especially the first one, seem to be questions that would slow someone down...unless I am just a moron and everyone else figured these out without much trouble.

Also, I wonder if the players are allowed to use a calculator when taking this test?
