or just a high-functioning sociopath? (~_^)

take the test!: Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale (h/t bones and behaviours!).

i’m not (or i’m such a psychopath that i lied on the whole test (~_^) ):

You have completed the Levenson Self-Report Psychopathy Scale.

“The LSRP measures two scales.

“Scores range from 1 (low) to 5 (high).

“Your score from primary psychopathy has been calculated as 1.3. Primary psychopathy is the affective aspects of psychopathy; a lack of empathy for other people and tolerance for antisocial orientations.

“Your score from secondary psychopathy has been calculated as 2.1. Secondary psychopathy is the antisocial aspects of psychopathy; rule breaking and a lack of effort towards socially rewarded behavior….

“Below is the distribution of how other people who have taken this test have scored.

“You score for primary psychopathy was higher than 10.51% of people who have taken this test.

“You score for secondary psychopathy was higher than 29.26% of people who have taken this test.”

ok, everybody. time to test yourselves!

our very own boy wonder, elijah armstrong, has developed a high-range crystallized test “intended to measure IQ into a very high range” (i am sooo gonna fail…).

if you’d like to participate in the norming of this test, please email elijah, and he will send you a copy of the test. he’ll send you your results, too, once it’s all over.

please, keep in mind that this is all being done on the HONOR SYSTEM, so no cheating! no looking anything up online! no sharing answers! follow the instructions to the letter, and please don’t post the questions anywhere! thanks. (^_^)

edit: please, see elijah’s comment below. (don’t download the OLD version of the test!)

this little test was lifted from the documentary below (thanks, gottlieb!). i haven’t watched the entire thing yet, but it looks to be good!

the christian science monitor has a little quiz up: Sunni and Shiite Islam: Do you know the difference?

i sorta do. i got 3 wrong out of 19 — 84%. eh. =/

the three questions i didn’t know the answers to were:

12. The title Sayyid is used by members of which sect?
13. The name for which sect comes from the Arabic word for follower?
15. Which sect considers members of the other to be apostates?

you try! no cheating! (~_^)
