That's an interesting site. (Not commenting on your score --> but my own:) I wonder if the idea is to give people higher scores in hopes that they will then want to buy a plaque that states such. After all, why would I want to buy a plaque for my office that confirms I'm a borderline moron?
My score was unrealistically high, I know I'm not that smart!
But this does bring up something I was thinking about earlier just this morning:
I was watching a video-taped "Dateline" News program about the 'Mozart - Effect'. (Part of the free propaganda from the local Steinway dealer!) I never knew the details of the claim before now. According to the 'experts' they presented, this wasn't a 'permanent' effect, only a very temporary one while listening to Mozart (& shortly thereafter). Also, it did not purport to help overall intelligence, only spatial reasoning skills.
I find that interesting for 2 reasons: I have always enjoyed classical music (Mozart in particular) & secondly, on previous IQ tests, the section involving spatial reasoning skills have always been my _lowest_ scoring section. My school grades confirmed this as well. I was an 'A' chemistry student until Organic Chemistry, an 'A' math student until advanced Spatial Geometry. I listen to lots of Mozart, but I guess it hasn't helped me very much!! Maybe I would have scored better had I been listening to Mozart while being tested?? -- I wish it had been an option!
So I guess this is "kinda'" in line with the subject of this thread: What does everyone else know/think about the "Mozart Effect"? Real? More pseudo-science mumbo jumbo? (The ringer on my cell phone is Mozart's 40th symphony... Will I have better spatial reasoning ability while talking on my cell phone?
