    Test Your Geek IQ



    Sure, you may have scored more than 150 on the standardized IQ test, you may party hearty with Mensa Mommas -- but what's that actually worth in the real world? Diddly. If you truly want to know how smart you are when it counts, then InfoWorld's Geek IQ test is the puzzler for you. Answer the 20 questions below, and we'll add up your score and let you know how you measure up. Even a suit can follow those directions. And remember: Googling every question will not give you an accurate score. Got a beef or want to brag? Take it out on the comments section of the Answer Key page at the end of the test.

    Take the test and see how you score at InfoWorld.com.

      Some of it really does test your IT skills and knowledge but a lot of it is a kind of "trivia test". Using Google is allowed but it may not help as much as you think. Here are my results: :oops:

      I liked this question:

      7. Why do so many Linux geeks prefer to operate the system in console mode?

      a. It's faster -- people who get little sex have faster fingers
      b. It's faster -- it's where we learned so we know how to get everything done
      c. It's more impressive to the opposite sex
      d. It's more impressive to managers, thus providing job security

      Guess which answer I chose :biggrin

      Here's my results:

      There is brain wave activity, but you might want to consider putting your affairs in order and pulling the plug.

      Total geek. You should write a Perl script to remotely explode the iPhone of that creep who just stole and defiled your stuffed penguin.
