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.”

chris pointed out a neat link to an online test to check out one’s number skillz:
“Panamath measures your number sense and Approximate Number System (ANS) aptitude. After answering a brief set of questions about yourself, you will complete the Panamath test. On each trial of the test, a brief flash of yellow and blue dots will appear, and you will respond whether you think there are more yellow dots or blue dots. At the end, you will see an output of your results and how you stack up compared with others who have taken the test.”
some of the trials are harder than others — the dots can vary in size and (what was a little tough for me) the difference in the number between the yellow and blue dots can be close or not-so-close. it’s harder when they’re closer together in number (at least for some of us it is!):
so, i don’t have totally s*cky math skillz (for my age) — my results were pretty close to, or in, the 90th percentile — but fell short for the harder tests. (~_^)
these scores sound pretty good — and they are, all things considered — but i think they’re prolly pretty s*cky compared to what i imagine a lot of hbders’ scores would prolly be — i’m thinking of someone like the audacious epigone or a reluctant apostate. compared to them, i’d bet that my scores s*ck! *sigh* ah, well. c’est la vie! (^_^)
the other thing is, my response times were also pretty sloooooow. iow, i’m not the sharpest math tack in the box — but i already knew that. (~_^) accuracy quite good — response time, not so much (and i thought i was so speedy!):
i’m smart, but i ain’t no savant. (^_^)
(note: comments do not require an email. how many? uh … one, two, three, four ….)
more genUine science being done online! really!
how musical are you? over @the beeb.
apparently i’m pretty musical even tho i never got past the recorder in 4th grade music class. but my “social creativity” is low. i coulda told ’em that. (~_^)
take the test. go on! it’s fer SCIENCE! (^_^)
the bbc’s got a little test to see if u can tell the diff between real and fake smiles. i’ve taken a couple of these in the past and never managed to do very well. this time i got 15 out of 20. yay! been practicing. (i can see u comin’ miles away now, bunch o’ fakers!)
at the end of the test there’s some hints on how to spot real smiles.
