    29/30 Which is much better than I expected.

    ... maybe this should have been predicated by a "test your regular intelligence" quiz.

    English is my third language, thank you very much. It's not often you hear someone use the word aghast in a regular conversation. Unless it's talk like a pirate day, I suppose.

    Well that's fine for you, but it's VLM's first language, which is I think the "what" part Guy was getting at. And still, you can't really criticize the people making the test for using a word like aghast when that's a fairly common word for a native English speaker and is useful in being more specific for describing an emotion. I understand these might not be common words in your third language, and that's fine. But if you're an adult and English is your first language and you don't know what aghast, incredulous, and despondent mean, something has gone wrong. It's particularly confusing when someone is online all the time in a forum where I'm positive such words have been used casually at some point or another. They really aren't "big words". (Also, the test also specifically asks if English is your first language, presumably for this reason.)

    Quite a few familiar pairs of eyes in there.

    Including face five: "SHEPUUUUURDDDD!"

    Anyway, 29/36. And, like Jello, I got very impatient very quickly. Clearly 29 is the score they give those who start clicking through rapidly. :p

    I got 28/36. Not bad considering I don't like hanging out with people much.

    And I'm sure one of the pics was Keanu Reeves, so I think that one was a trick question. :p

    27/36, though a few were blind guesses.

    I got 22/36. It could be because I don't like people so I don't care what their eyes are saying. It doesn't matter most of my social interaction is done online.

    I think all us 30s and above should create some sort of clique.

    I thought I had typed 36. Still the 29/36 was decent since most of the eyes I thought looked the same. [face_dunno]

    Not sure how I managed that- I found the female faces tricky.

    Presumably one where we sit together at a table and communicate using only our eyes so the others don't know what we're talking about.

    No, if we do that they'll think we want them to sex us, apparently.
