With regard to test taking, some of us are not good at it.
Daughter did not do spectacularly on SAT's yet her IQ is in the top 1%. Same with my other child. Both very successful.
I'm 65 years old and spent most of my life raising my kids. If you want to give me a title, how about "domestic engineer" which seemed to work for Roseanne Barr!
In our family having a "work ethic" was more valuable in the long run than how well we did on tests.
My hats off to all of you who took this test. It shows a lot of confidence!
PS: I did take the little Mensa test and the results showed that I was a good candidate for taking the big Mensa test. No way. No how.
I quit while I was ahead!
