Vince Young, the Uber-QB from Texas, will clearly be one of the first three players chosen in the upcoming NFL draft. Young is working out for NFL scouts at a combine in Indianapolis, and word out today is that he scored a 6 (which has since been adjusted up to a 16) on an exam called the Wonderlic Personnel Test. Nearly three million job applicants in the US are given the Wonderlic each year. Examples of Wonderlic questions are:
1. Of the following, which is the ninth month of the year?
2. Which number of the following group of numbers represents the smallest amount?
3. When rope is selling at $.10 a foot, how many feet can you buy for 60 cents?
There are 50 questions on the test, making each question worth two points. I'm terrible at Math, but I'm pretty sure I just got a Wonderlic score of 6 based on those three questions alone...
Reminds me of a former sister-in-law, who struggled to understand how illegal immigrants from Mexico made it to the US on foot when they had to cross the Atlantic.
