This quiz isn't calibrated, but if "feels" about the same difficulty as other Wonderlic tests available on the internet.

Supposedly, the average score is 20. My guess is that it would be higher if people remembered to guess. Speed appears to be the biggest factor in earning a good score.

If properly calibrated, the median (50th percentile) score should equal an IQ of 100, 5th percentile would be a score of 70, and 95th percentile would be a score of 130. But I feel like the average JetPunk user probably has an IQ above 100, which would mean that the percentile rankings here are skewed upward. The numeric score doesn't matter except that it tells you which percentile you finished in.
+2
Level 80
Sep 20, 2020
So, currently

16 correct = IQ of 70

35 correct = IQ of 100

In real life, I'd estimate the following:

IQ 70: Did not finish. Unable to understand the questions. No significant difference from random guessing.

IQ 100: 20ish

IQ 115: 30ish

IQ 130: 40ish

IQ 145: 45+

IQ 160: 45+. This test is unable to distinguish IQ's more than 3 STD above the median.

x% means the same thing as x/100, because x% of y is equal to an x/100 fraction of y. It's easier to see this with simpler values - 50% of something means the same as half of it, so 50% is one half i.e. 0.5.

That is assuming that 100 = 1.

If you get half (0,5) of something it's 50%. Same goes for 0,574 to 57,4 %

Level 82
Jul 27, 2020
Fun fact: the percent sign is just a stylised reordering of the zeroes in 100 with a / sign so that it reads 1/100. The same pattern is sometimes used for 1/1000 and 1/10000 but with extra zeroes below (being ‰ = permille and ‱ = permyriad respectively).

I've got brain lock on number 34. I interpreted it as a circle segmented on the right at 1/8, 1/4, and 1/2. Then the sequence starts over with the circle segmented on the left 1/8...; so I assume it's D (1/4 to the left). I can't get how goes to 1/3 right-segmented as a sequence. Someone please unclog my brain.

It's not starting the pattern over, it's continuing the same pattern. Think of it like a clock on the hour where the minute hand is always facing up. The hour hand starts off at 1/8 of the clock, then adds 1/8 to go to 1/4, then adds 2/8 to go to 1/2, then adds 3/8 to go to 7/8, then adds 4/8 to go to 11/8 which is the same as 3/8.
+1
Level 64
Sep 19, 2020
My problem with this is that +1/8 +1/8 +2/8 isn't a pattern- it's not logical to assume that the next is 3/8 unless we're meant to assume its a fibonacci-type accumulating sequence. If it were +1/8 +2/8 +3/8 then the next would logically be +4/8, but that's not what they did. Is this a question they actually use in any of the tests??
+1
Level 54

its not adding 1/8 to zero at the start, that is just where it starts. and then they add 1/8, 2/8, 3/8.

Sep 18, 2020
My interpretation was:

Clock at 1:30

Clock at 3:00

Clock at 6:00

Clock at 10:30

So the series added 1:30, then 3:00, then 4:30. Therefore I added 6 hours to 10:30 and got 4:30.

49/50 the only one I got wrong was the miserly one. Tbf it seems a bit weighted towards good mental maths. The clock one was the hardest for me, took me ages to realise the pattern was 7/8 back, 6/8 back, 5/8 back, 4/8 back. Or come to think of it also 1/8 forward, 1/4 forward, 3/8 forward, 4/8 forward.
+2
Level 65
Sep 18, 2020
And weighted toward knowing mathematical rules. For example, the question "Which number times itself is 1,369?" The options are 12, 25, 37, and 50. The only way to get an odd answer is to multiply odd x odd, so 12 and 50 are out. That leaves 25 and 37. The answer whenever you multiply by a number ending in 5 always ends in 5 or 0, so 25 is out. The answer has to be 37. Another way to come at it is that "1,369" ends in 9, so the square root has to end in 3 or 7, because those are the only digits who squares end in 9. There's no option ending in 3, so it has to be the one ending in 7. There are several math questions on this thing like that: where it looks like you have to do a lot of calculating, but if you understand the rules and relationships, you can do them quickly without calculating. Seems like that's how you get a high score, because given the time crunch, it seems really tough to do all the calculations and finish in time.

I got them all except the coin-flip one, which I still cannot compute. I thought with independent probability, each flip has 1/2 chance of being heads, and because each flip is independent of the others, it's 1/2 overall. Seems like you get to the /8 denominator by multiplying the three denominators (/2) from each flip, but where does the 7/ numerator come from? Is this the calculation where you get the opposite conclusion and then subtract from one? So...1/2 odds of getting tails on a given flip...three flips...1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/8 chance you'll get tails three times, which means the odds of not getting tails three times (i.e., at least one flip is heads) is 7/8. I think I just answered my own question, but can someone confirm this is right? I don't remember learning this in school.
+3
Level 70
Sep 18, 2020
that's right
+3
Level 48
Sep 18, 2020
It is because it is the odds of a heads on the first flip + the odds of a head on the second flip given a tails on the first + the odds of a heads on the third flip given a tails on the first and second flips. Ie 1/2 + (1/2*1/2) + (1/2*1/2*1/2) = 1/2 + 1/4 + 1/8 = 4/8 + 2/8 + 1/8 = 7/8.
+1

it's a different way to ask what the odds of getting all tails on 3 flips would be, which is 1/2 3 times.

Your answer to number 40 is wrong. As a matter of fact, the right answer doesn't appear as one of the choices.

40. Only 20% of farms have good soil. But these farms produce 80% of the crops. How many times more productive is a farm with good soil than one without?

Farms with good soil are 15 times more productive. They are 16 times as productive, but only 15 times more productive.

think about it like this:

Suppose there are 5 farms in the scenario that make 10 crops. 1 farm (1/5 = 20%) is the most productive, and it makes 8 crops (80%). The other 4 farms collectively make 2 crops, or 0.5 each. So the top farm makes 8 crops to any other farm's 0.5. 8 is 16x 0.5

If I have one, and you have 16, you have 16 times as much as me, not 16 times more than me. You would need to have 17 to my one in order to have 16 times more. The answer is 16 times as much or 15 times more. 16 times more is wrong.

This is a great quiz, however, the question with the fan, the car, the bike, and the boat confused me a little... since the car and the boat are both vehicles, and they contain fans for the engine (in some of them), just like some bikes contain fans (for the engine/motor). Basically I just feel like a different set of answers would improve it a little, but it's only minor! Thanks!

Your way of reading this is very esoteric but even then, 3 of the options are "contains fan" which leaves fan itself as the odd one.

47/50, I'm happy with that. The three I missed were embarrassingly simple, though...

I made some simple mistakes, too, I think because the timer encourages you to not check your answers.

Quiz is great, but time is main problem. It's almost impossible to have more than 40-45 from first attempt. 15 minutes would be perfect.

This makes me think that the people who become football players do so because no other option is left to them... 50/50 in half the time is not a challenge.

What's up with #34? I got 44 correct, which I think is good, but I don't get #34 even after seeing the answer.

Crikey - 49/50 and with 1 minute to spare. I only missed out on 50 because I didn't read one of the questions properly. However I'm not sure that makes me 160+ IQ. So far as I know my IQ is 135 - 140 from previous tests I have taken (a long time ago).

"Arrange the following words to make a complete sentence"

I got it right by luck. It makes absolutely no sense at all to me.

49/50 with plenty of time to spare. I don't think I have 160 IQ though, people on JetPunk are definitely smarter than average.

I don't want to sound rude, but it honestly surprises me that the average would be 35.
