This is the self-test my Intro to Graphic design professor gave us. Keep in mind each question had the multiple choice answers 'Almost Always' through 'Never,' worth 1-5 points, respectively:

---
2-minute Creative IQ Test(TM) for Individuals

A. Are you quick to find fault with ideas--your own or those of others?

B. How frequently fo [sic] you get attached to how things are done?

C. How often do you hold back from mentioning something for fear of looking silly or being "wrong"?

D. Do you ever have the tendency to stop at your first good idea?

E. How many ideas do you tend to generate--good or bad--when tackling a project?
---

So. Fine. But it's so selective and short, no one would seriously speak of the results of this test as authoritative?

And since some of the 'wrong' answers indicate other positive traits, like efficiency, or concern with quality or detail, it wouldn't make sense to make a student who scored, say, an 11, feel necessarily inferior?

And if they must do that, then it becomes a question of tact, and one would not have students reveal their score range to the rest of the class, resulting in pointless ego-stroking for the 20's-ers and publicly humiliating assessments like
-"14-16? You guys are above average-- but just barely".
Or worse, my bracket: "Hm."


Surely not.



...ARGH. THIS MAN.
