Pew Research Center News IQ Test

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Evil Bastard (aka Chris_L), Nov 8, 2011.

  1. I find the quiz interesting but the results disappointing. People, in general, are uninformed.


    I am in the 8% but don't think that's a big deal. The quiz is easy if you have been paying attention.

    How did you do? What question slipped you up?

    I don't feel like I've been paying great attention and still received a 13. Almost scary how easy they made the test.

    I got all 13, as most of us will. I bet my mom and dad would both get a four or a five. At best.

    I got 10, and blatantly guessed on about 8 of them. :D

    Got all 13. Simple.

    I'm way, way way out of touch with the news these days, and I still got 12. I didn't know what Sonia Sotomayer looked like.

    13-for-13. If you work in the news business, that test was pretty easy.

    That was one of the ones I actually knew.

    I'm embarrassed to have missed the Prime Minister of Great Britain, but in my defense, I'm an isolationist and a xenophobe.

    I wonder how members of Congress would fare.
