Smarter euchre - Starting the experiment

Since becoming a better euchre player is what this website is all about, I thought I would follow the plan laid out in the smart euchre post and see if it helps. Feel free to report your results.

Smart Euchre - Initial IQ test

I completed the test over at IVillage and scored much lower than I would've hoped. 122. But I was distracted when I took it.

Two day update

Alright, steamed by my showing in the IQ test I decided to see if the extra sleep and good eating was helping me. I mean, it's been 2 days right? On Tuesday I got 8 hours of sleep and the fact that I only got 5 last night shouldn't matter. I ate better both days having breakfast and a smart Salmon dinner last night. So, I re-took that stupid IQ test and guess what? This experiment must be working. I score a whopping 170!! That's higher than a genius. I can't believe it. I'm a genius euchre player. Now I'm worried that if I keep the experiment up my head will explode. But I'll risk it. Becoming a better euchre player is worth it.

sorry to disappoint you but if it was the same iq test, the result is not valid... you'll have to wait at least 2 years to retake it. But keep up the good work!

Thanks for the tip Kim. And I'm not really disappointed. I don't put much stock in IQ tests anyway. Unless, of course, they tell me I'm a genius.

I took the test and got 120 - the welcomed "above average" iq - lol

I redid it reversing every answer and instantly I became 29 - retarded.

Thank goodness I should have waited 2 years!
