    I've seen people claim that there is no good way to measure social intelligence or "EQ", but this test impressed me. It's pretty quick. Anyone else want to give it a go?

    (note: at the end, you are prompted to answer some questions for their research. When I clicked yes, I found the link was broken, so you should click no at that prompt)

    A much lower score, and exactly the same percentile... wait, what?

    Took the test, it was pretty fun to do, not boring or long.

    "These are your results from the Personality-Based Emotional Intelligence Test.

    You got 21 of 25 questions correct. That is better than 72% of people who take this test."

    Not sure how useful it is, but hey!

    Well, I don't have any explanation for that one. Weird...

    It could be a very sophisticated test which delivers different questions to different testees, and tracks each question's difficulty, using that to construct a percentile performance score. Perhaps even a computer adaptive test.

    But probably it is simply a broken website.

    To figure out which it is, someone who has taken the test already should take it again and determine whether the questions are the same.

    Either this test is a Magic 8-Ball, or there is such a small data size that each test is throwing the percentile around.

    Not reading the instructions with a double "no" at the end 7 of 25 (That is better than 7.2% of people who take this test.) Master Race reporting in.

    person a) the test is broken
    person b) what do I win and when do I get it?

    18/25. Seems too vaguely worded. Perhaps I needed to drink more before taking it?

    I've got 21 too. But the percentage is different every time someone takes the test?
