Too long for me but finished anyway. Guess I did good, didn`t really explain if you did great or not. Just explained why the tests were being done, so, ok in the end. Good one. I atleast know where my memory lies;)

Well, yes... it was made in Edinburgh. Doubt they expected IAB to pick it up.

Btw I remembered the smiley :)

"Smiley face
As an additional test of your memory for future plans, we asked you to click a smiley face at the end of the test. What we didn`t tell you is that there are four versions of this question. For example, some people were told in advance what the smiley looks like, while others weren`t. The scientist who designed this test wants to see how the different ways of asking you to click the smiley affect your memory for things that you plan to do in the future."

Well I do remember things better visually, so being one of the people who saw the visual probably helped :-).

I suspected my memory was superb for the longest (as long as I can remember, in fact) and I`m currently testing it with decimal places of pi. I`m trying for 314 places.

9 out of 9 numbers.
25 out of 25 shapes.
11 out of 12 right left hand questions (didnt count the last click :) )
long time memory sucks.
I guess i have a good visual memory, which i was actually aware of and lack long time memory which I already knew also.

This is a well done and very user-friendly test. The only complaint: they could have chosen different "common" objects for the long-term test!

3 out of 3 remembering things, 3 out of 4 on the animals, 9 out of 9 on the animals, and 6 out of 6 on the words. Got the right part on the long term spot the difference, and remembered to click the smiley at the end. Guess I passed the test.
