    ----Semi-spoiler alert---

    I got some of the big ones and some of the small ones, but almost none of the quick ones. On a traditional IQ test I usually score quite a bit above average, so I guess I fall outside the 64%.

    I`m the same. Saw movement on all the but quickest ones, no matter what size they were. I was in Mensa so I don`t know what that means with regards to this test. I do buy into the notion that smart people think quicker and more precisely.

    In between 0:22 and 0:23 seconds... it`s fast! You have to look several times to see it. idk how to "frame by frame" advance...

    WTF is up with that?

    About the "clicky" part: Yeah, having a "high IQ" doesn`t necessarily mean you are better at "survival" eh? Otherwise every human would be much smarter by now! (Due to natural selection as well as mate selection)

    For the record: I saw the smallest ones best, even if they were quick, but had troubles with the largest ones.

    And I saw that 28 too...

    I think if you`re trying to test yourself right now after you`ve read the summaries and explanations, it`s already flawed. If you`re expecting the lines to move, and you`re aware that your intelligence hinges on it, it will screw up the experiment.

    I also have a few problems with the methodology in this. I have experience with some academics being overzealous if they find even a slight correlation in anything. Like, for instance, the more authoritarian a country is, the faster it has been growing in recent years. So dubious, but academics seize upon it things like this all the time.

    I could see both big and small. I don`t know of that makes me smart or not though.

    No perceivable difference between large and small, for me. Whatever that means...

    Andrew155, I don`t think any worthwhile academics *do* seize on bad or spurious data all that often. What I think often happens is that they publish decent papers with reasonable findings and the press jumps on a single correlation and blows it way out of proportion.

    As for me, I had a difficult time taking this test because I was concerned it`d be one of those screamer videos and I didn`t want to be concentrating too hard at the screen! :-)

    The subliminal 28! It pops up right before "Did you get that one?" at 0:24!

    Please let someone else see it... :-/
