View Full Version : Wonderlic Test

Greetings,

I ran across this link, and thought that I would share it with everyone. One of the things brought up when evaluating NFL draft hopefuls is their Wonderlic score. I've always been curious about what that was exactly, and now I know, or at least now have a better idea. Give it a whirl if you've got a few minutes to spend, they give you 3 and a half minutes to complete it.

Post your scores if you want, it would be interesting to see how everyone rates against each other and NFL players.

I scored a 23, I ran out of time on question 12. However, I'm smarter than Cam Newton

I scored a 33, I scored better than Phillip Rivers, then again I'd certainly hope so just based on how dumb he perpetually looks.

I hate the question that asks which month has the same amount of daylight hours as May. I have no idea. I never learned about daylight hours in school.

This is actually harder than the pen and paper version. When I type quickly, I hit two keys at a time and have to backtrack to fix the mistakes. I seem to remember the real-life one being either all or mostly multiple choice...and they hand you a calculator at the start. When I took one for my current job, I finished 49 questions and got 45 or 46 of them right.

...which raises an interesting question: does the NFL administer this thing old school or new school? Can Vince Young be a normal guy who looks like a tard just because he can't type?

What pops into my head is August. I don't know how to defend that answer, but for some reason I'm just sure in my gut that it's correct.

Mine asked for March and I answered October.

I scored a 30 :(

But i my defense, i was fighting to keep a 2 year old off of my computer while i took the test. That has got to be good for at least an additional 3 points, right?

That question regarding Grace and the shinguards is actually a question from the LSATs. and 75 percent of test takers miss that questions. If you got it right, feel good about yourself.

Proof: my philosphy class.

You Scored 40
That's better than Eli Manning. He only scored a 39.

He is the younger brother of NFL quarterback Peyton Manning and the son of former NFL quarterback Archie Manning. Manning won the most valuable player award in Super Bowl XLII on February 3, 2008.

It doesn't count when you take the test several times.

Had a 43. I'm smarter than the most terrible QB of the league.

Couldn't answer the last question (time), and decided to just take a guess on the Yes/no question, seeing as I had a 50% chance.

Highest daylight hours = June
Lowest daylight hours = December
Each halfway point is the middle ground : September and March.

Everybody knows about June and December. The rest is simple logic.

If Breed ever gets banned I will chop every admin's dick off, put them all in a small box, and mail the box to Scott.

I <3 you Breed.

Too tired to have any shot at a reasonable score right now. This is my placeholder b/c I'm too tired to remember to do it later without seeing the updated thread. lol

One thing that can't be under-rated is that many players are prepped by their agents to take this test.

So they take a few before taking this one.

Another minor difference is that if you don't like a question, you can skip it and come back.

So people getting 15-30 may do much better if they were an athlete taking this thing for real.

Also, I took it numerous times (until I had gotten all of the questions and gotten correct answers for them) and didn't get a 50, so I wonder if this thing isn't penalizing you for a wrong answer, regardless.

It is timed for a reason, when they are testing things like this it's not only that you get the questions right, it's that you get them right in a timely manner. I don't know exactly what formula is used to determine that, but I'd guess they have a baseline of how long it should take to figure out, sort of like those trivia things at Buffalo Wild Wings, gives you a set amount of time then starts counting down the point total.

I've got that but you've missed the point. Athletes are well prepared and random people taking this off the cuff are not.

As far as the formula: it's 1 point per question and the actual test is 50 questions (I took one while interviewing for jobs). This test gives 3.33333 points per question (rounded down).

Did anyone else get distracted and annoyed by the question asking about how many "points" were scored in the soccer game, you know given that soccer doesn't have points in any way, shape or form.

Also... what's with the questions that are small essays with that type of time limit...

Best post ever.

"You Scored 3

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

That was trying to take it on my phone (maybe that was Vince Young's problem the first time). I'll retake it when I get home, but I thought you guys might want to see that. I lol'd when I read it.

I like seeing you post that you're better than Aaron Rodgers, and then looking to the left to see a fist-pumping Kip Dynamite.

On the flip side of this, I type 115 words per minute with high accuracy, and I would almost certainly do worse on a pen and paper version of the test. I'm thinking that I would do much worse.

lol, 16 on first attempt to make me smarter than Julio Jones. 36 on 2nd pass to tie the better than Rodgers mark. First try was ridiculous because it started out with the words per page question and I didn't even finish the last half.
