    I took a practice one online.. I couldn't get close to done, because of so much lag time, after clicking "next."

    Some of the questions are pretty tough. It's been so long since I took a math course.. that I had long forgotten how to answer some of them.

    But some were so ridiculously easy, that there is literally no way that anyone over 12 years old should score under a 10-15.

    Precisely. That puts him at about the mentality of an 8-10 year old.

    Wonderlic scores are good for testing a very limited scope of things: Time management, and being able to answer math and English solutions.

    I can't see how it is used to judge any more than that.

    It does not judge how well you work with other people, how egotistical you can be, how you respond to adversity, and if you can actually perform the job you are asked to perform.

    It is the perfect test to find out if someone will succeed at crunching numbers in an isolated cubicle.

    I thought it was a 6. Either way, pretty freaking astounding.
