From austenrowling, who seems to have a lot of fun memes. :)

You scored 21 American Logic Points!
You actually have some American logic, but hopefully you didn't cheat...

My test tracked 1 variable How you compared to other people your age and gender:

You scored higher than 62% on American Logic

I'm not sure if this test is really about logic, though. It seemed to be more about observational skills. Nothing really to figure out, logically speaking.

Heh, of course the problem is... I don't exactly see Canadiam coins down here on a regular basis *L* (17)

Yeah! Why are Canadian coins on an American logic test?

I think it depends on knowing that they're called "loonies" and figuring that means there's a loon on them somewhere. But I know that 'cause I grew up on the border. Dunno how someone closer to the Mexican border would happen on that information; it's not like we get a lot Canadian TV where talk about money is thrown around.

I got 21, too. Several of them, though--you're right, they have nothing to do with logic. Why would I know what Canadian coins look like? I don't play cards, so I don't have a clue where the trademark can be found. There were lots of questions that a reasonably intelligent and logical person could just not know.

I got 22, though some questions were easier for me since I'm Canadian. But, really, I think that may be one of the most unusual tests I've ever taken. Every question on that test was based on how much you pay attention to things, and it's entirely possible that the most observant person on Earth may have not come across Canadian coins, been on a merry-go-round or seen a standard pack of matches.

I'm really quite confused about why the creator of that quix thinks the questions are based on logic.

15 - not bad for an Aussie who has never seen a Canadian coin.

And I second the motion that it is an American Observation Skills Quiz.

An American logic quiz to me would have to include such questions as to the logic behind almost every takeaway food item containing or being covered in cheese. Where is the logic in that? Don't ask but it made for a difficult holiday when I'm lactose intolerant. I won't go into the logic behind 'half and half' because nobody I know can give me a straight answer. The same with C2 Coke. I'll leave it at that for now, because I have a whole backlog of questions that I would like answered about American logic...

I scored 16. I too don't think it's a logic test so much as a test of how observant you are.

No logic involved. I'd call it a "US Daily Life Trivia Quiz".
