PewNews IQ


I feel smart.

After taking this test, here are my results:

Here's Your Score: You correctly answered 12 of the 12 possible questions along with approximately 3% of the public. You did better than 97% of the general public.
The test itself is provided by the Pew Research Center, a self-described "nonpartisan 'fact tank' that provides information on the issues, attitudes and trends shaping America and the world."

The stats on the test are more frighteningly revelatory rather than interesting. Unfortunately, giving you any examples would give away questions on the test. If you want to be frightened, when you finish the test take a look at the demographic breakdown question by question. (The one that jumped out at me was the comparison between questions 2, 5, and 7 for nearly every demographic.)
