Some of these are vocabulary questions, not a test of senses. I don't get that.

Buck.... I have to say it was a tough one, I timed out on the first question trying to figure out what I needed to do!

The other thing I found out is that it does not always ask the same questions, or at least I don't think it does. Hubby did it and I asked him about the pineapple and soy sauce combo and he said he did not get that question.... maybe I will try it again!

13 for me. But I have some physiology study background, and some of the question had nothing to do with testing senses, but rather, with pure knowledge. I was suprized I didn't do better, and that's not bragging. I was too slow moving on a couple of questions.

So everyone, take this test with a grain of salt. It measure your exposure to information more than it does your sensitivity. I'd dare say that any of you, had you the same background as I have, probably would have done better. I should have done better.

For instance, the gorilla question is similar to questions on most IQ tests. I recognized the type of question and needed no spatial skills to answer it correctly. The same can be said of the super-taster, and smell is processed in what part of the brain, question. I knew these from previous study of related topics. So just have fun with this test. Don't take it too seriously.

I don't think I am getting the same test as the rest of you. Vocabulary questions? I didn't see anything like that.

It worked when I did that. Thanks for the tip.

I got 16/20.

I didn't get any vocabulary questions either. There was one where you choose the sentence that is incorrect, but it's not a vocabulary problem. A word is repeated in the sentence. Also there was the one where you had to count a certain letter, but that wasn't vocabulary either. They were brain teasers more than anything.
