Serena Outed as Half Normal


You Are 50% Normal

While some of your behavior is quite normal...
Other things you do are downright strange
You've got a little of your freak going on
But you mostly keep your weirdness to yourself



Do you know what your EQ is?

Your EQ is 133

50 or less: Thanks for answering honestly. Now get yourself a shrink, quick!
51-70: When it comes to understanding human emotions, you'd have better luck understanding Chinese.
71-90: You've got more emotional intelligence than the average frat boy. Barely.
91-110: You're average. It's easy to predict how you'll react to things. But anyone could have guessed that.
111-130: You usually have it going on emotionally, but roadblocks tend to land you on your butt.
131-150: You are remarkable when it comes to relating with others. Only the biggest losers get under your skin.
150+: Two possibilities - you've either out "Dr. Phil-ed" Dr. Phil... or you're a dirty liar.

Umm, I'm majorly weird and the test came back with 50%. I think the test is weird...and broken.

Scary Monster said...

Me Has to agree with corn dog.
Me spent much time tryin to get the test to accept both answers on a few of the questions. Me also thinks the test be biased, Me don't own ant button down/up shirts, only pullovers

Serena Joy said...

CD, 'Broken' is a terrific song. No, seriously, you and SM are right. I concede that half (probably most) of these quizzes are duds. I've been labeled both a sinner and a saint by the same quiz. LOL.

Kanrei said...

Your EQ is 93

I am an emotional retard but I knew that already. I thought I would score a little higher though.

Serena Joy said...

Kan, I don't think you have anything to worry about. It's the test that's slow and backward. I'm going to find some better caliber quizzes.:)

Liz said...

Hey, Kanrei, I got 73!

Good definitions. Funny but strangely true.

You Are 60% Normal

Otherwise known as the normal amount of normal
You're like most people most of the time
But you've got those quirks that make you endearing
You're unique, yes... but not frighteningly so!

I'm 60% normal and I think the test was wrong because I know I'm not that normal.
