    I just took a Wonderlic



    I just had a job interview today. Everything was going well. Then, out of the blue, he said he had a test he wanted me to take. He put it on the desk and...it was a Wonderlic test. I couldn't stop smiling. For those of you that don't know the Wonderlic test is a 12 minute, 50 question test that is supposed to judge cognitive ability. It is given to all of the football players at the NFL combine.

    Here are the average scores per position:



    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Offensive_tackle"]Offensive tackle[/URL] – 26
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Center_%28football%29"]Center[/URL] – 25
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quarterback"]Quarterback[/URL] – 24 (Most teams want at least 21 for a quarterback.)[URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wonderlic_Test#cite_note-pompei20100419-7"][8][/URL]
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guard_%28football%29"]Guard[/URL] – 23
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tight_end"]Tight end[/URL] – 22
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_back"]Safety[/URL] – 19
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linebacker"]Linebacker[/URL] – 19
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Defensive_back"]Cornerback[/URL] – 18
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wide_receiver"]Wide receiver[/URL] – 17
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fullback_%28American_football%29"]Fullback[/URL] – 17
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Running_back"]Halfback[/URL] – 16

    Also, here are the averages for some professions:



    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Historian"]Historian[/URL] – 36
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemist"]Chemist[/URL] – 31
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programmer"]Programmer[/URL] – 29
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Journalist"]Journalist[/URL] – 26
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sales"]Sales[/URL] – 24
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bank_teller"]Bank teller[/URL] – 22
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clerical_worker"]Clerical worker[/URL] – 21
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Security_guard"]Security guard[/URL] – 17
    [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warehouse"]Warehouse[/URL] worker – 15

    So, I had no idea this test was coming. I also am fairly anti-math (there are some math questions on the test). The test was interesting, as it contained at least one question that I don't even think had a right answer. I'm supposed to get a call later from the guy about the job. I'll let you guys know how I did.

    (Honestly, I'm still laughing about it. I was like "Wtf? A Wonderlic? BRING THAT @#%$ on!" haha)
