Humdinger Of An IQ Test — Try It IF You Want To Feel Humbled.

This, if it is truly bona fide, is AN IQ Test!

Wow.

I am a veteran of IQ tests and must have done close to a hundred in my days. I recounted in my first “Brain Meditation” book (last years) how IBM made me take 3 IQ Tests, when I was 19, one at 10pm at night and then gave me an unconditional job offer — good for ‘life’. I include that snippet below, BUT I assume you all read it in the book. Right? {SMILE}

This is good — assuming it is NOT bogus.

It starts of EASY PEASY and lulls you into a sense of complacency. Then BANG.

I found this on MarketWatch this morning.

I did the test, this morning, on my pad, while doing my ablutions in the bathroom! I was also in a hurry since I needed to start shoveling. I didn’t go for the complete result profile. Didn’t have time. But, it did say that my results were above average. That might not mean much and with all due modesty “I damn well hope I am still above average”.

But, try it. Forget the score …

Do it just to see the questions, no numbers.

All symbols, all 40 of them.

Enjoy.

Got the above in an e-mail Wednesday morning.

I was baffled; it made no sense.

Both ‘Kindle Direct Publishing‘ (KDP) and ‘CreateSpace‘ are Amazon companies — though KDP is more tightly integrated with Amazon, e.g., can reach KDP from Amazon.com (usiing same userid/password).

My books are published with BOTH.

‘CreateSpace’ has offered a publish on Kindle option for years — and actually pesters you to do so.

Yes, makes a LOT of sense to combine the two and have just one Amazon publishing company that did BOTH paperbacks and eBooks, i.e., Kindle.

But, in this instance KDP appears to be competing head-on with CS and even telling me to move my paperbacks from CS to KDP.

Does not make sense.

I went to CS to see if I can find a statement. I couldn’t. So I have e-mailed them.

I will keep you posted. Very confusing.

I had noticed that CS since September had been acting jittery. This may have been the cause.
