    I got a 10 but you should really have a pen and paper for that test.
    It's not really designed for you to answer all questions, more about accuracy in the time alloted.

    Yeah, got a 26 on the first try. Not really happy with that, so I did it a second time and got 40.

    Fun post, but the test has nothing to do with football intelligence or any other type of intelligence. That's why BB spent time testing Dobson with football intelligence questions.

    Yep - I agree. I got 30 and didn't have time for 3 questions. And that includes a few that simply can't be worked in the 15 seconds per question that I passed on.

    It seems far from relevant to me - at being said I got the same score as Peyton Manning and since he's got a large head, I figure he must be smart.

    Got a 23..

    Cannot remember the last time I took a timed test, or better still any test.

    38, but I'm pretty sure I could have scored significantly higher if I had a pencil and paper instead of trying to do everything in my head.



    The wonderlic isn't about intelligence, its about how quickly you can figure out what the problem actually is. All the questions are pretty trivial once you figure out what they're actually asking. Its about mental processing speed.

    Eli Manning, who looks like the poster boy for Downs Syndrome, has the highest score. Take that for what it's worth.

    Got a 34 and didn't get to three questions. Hmm. I'm sure you can get better with practice. Mostly math questions. Is that a complete Wonderlic test, or just a taste of a longer test?

    First time I ever quoted myself!

    I got a 36 and answered all but one question the 2nd time through. The gizmo said that Aaron Rodgers got a 35. I should be paid more than the highest paid player in NFL history. My boss is gonna get an earful on Monday morning, the cheap b#@tard!

    I think we need a meetup with Kevin Faulk after they start dispensing medical marijuana in Massachusetts and have a brownie & Wonderlic contest.

    Sorry, all the football players in my database scored better than you did.

    The actual test is a bit longer: 50 questions, 12 minutes. And while the test is not completely predictive of ability, it's still useful as a quick screening tool on how quickly you think on your feet—which is an important skill for an NFL player.

    FWIW, I had a 43. Unfortunately, this is the same score which Greg McElroy had, which means I'm potentially in danger of being drafted by the Jets. :eek:

    I'd love to try the 50 question version. Lots of math questions and fewer logic like the soccer question or the visual acuity like the shapes question on the short version.

    You Scored 36
    That's better than Aaron Rodgers. He only scored a 35.
    He played college football at Cal. He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the 2005 NFL Draft. He led the Packers to victory at Super Bowl XLV and was named Super Bowl MVP.
    Share Your Score!


    Um, can I get paid like Rodgers?

    You Scored 46
    That's better than Greg McElroy. He only scored a 43.
    He led Alabama to a BCS National Championship in 2010.

    Kinda cheated cause I took it twice, I got a pen and paper for the second one.

    Not sure what any of that has to do with football, but I guess as a general aptitude type thing it probably makes sense.

    Oh, and I just read up on the top and bottom Wonderlic's of all time...seems like being either too smart or too dumb doesn't have much predictive power. Morris Claiborne and Gore were both in the low single digits, Fitzpatrick and Ben Watson both scored 48's. Decent talent on opposite ends of the spectrum.

    I'm amused that some Cats feel the need to spin Numbers out'f thin air and try to impress us. :D
