    I think most scouts and coaches understand that at this point 1) the test is very difficult to interpret and 2) because of point 1, Wonderlics are taken with a grain of salt. Game intelligence can't be measured by asking such abstract questions (the questions can be extremely random and abstract).

    I'd love to take a wonderlic. See how difficult it really is/isn't.

    But these days you gotta think that more are beginning to realise wonderlic scores and how fast you can run a 40 are really not a good indication of how good a player is, more 'game smarts'

    I took a sample one with my one of my coaches last summer. I scored an equivalent of like, a 28 or something. It was different conditions than what they have to (I think the question pool was smaller). But believe me, the questions were weird as hell.

    The sample they give at the bottom of the article is easy.

    There are those logic questions, then there are questions that ask you about yourself, like what type of of object most closely represents you, interpreting/comparing shapes that are extremely similar, etc. It was quite odd, and really had nothing to do with football.

    how the heck do you grade someone on questions that have no 'real' answer.

    I think you should get different points for putting your name on the paper. If you have a cool name, you are going to be a winner. If you have a crappy name, you ain't gonna be crap. End of scouting.
