I don't need to do the test to know that I have worse memory than 95% of people  ;D

I got 61 points... But it's not fully comparable because of the foreign language.
This type of test is not so bad for me, since it kind of works with intuitive memory rather than deliberately trying to remember. I  made mistakes when I started to doubt myself and didn't fully trust my intuition.

Maybe I should do the number test...I would probably get the worst results ever... ;D

That's really good, actually, lmao!
And yes above to outin it does test "intuitive memory" which i think is cool.

You realise that if they had one on perfect pitch - I'd own you and everyone else here.

not really a measure of intelligence, since either you have perfect pitch or you don't. So you would own everyone without perfect pitch and tie with everyone who does have it  ;D

True... but I'd be faster than everyone else with perfect pitch as well.

Plus - I don't see how memorising words is a sign of intelligence. It's a sign you have a good memory - Autistic people have fantastic memories (in a large amount of cases), but they can barely multiply.

You can memorise notes, I can memorise sounds.

And I can't memorize anything...so it's clearly not any measure of intelligence ;)

I don't mean intelligence as in how smart you are. I mean intelligence, as in a random skill that can be developed.

What if your skill can't be developed any further??? My record is being able to identify 6 notes played together on a piano... after that the overtones, make it very hard to distinguish.

I doubt someone really intelligent would bother with a skill such as remembering random words...

I envy you so much... Were you, like, born like that, or is it a skill that you developed with practice?

I'll admit, I've only ever had anyone seriously test me on 6 notes a few times in my life, but I've never gotten them wrong... yet. As for single notes... My record is 80 identified notes in a single minute...

Born with it...
