    Yeah, pretty much.
    There are a multitude of IQ tests out there with some claiming to measure beyond 200 which to me, is a trite attempt at giving someone what they want instead of what they merit.
    The Wechsler / Bellevue test for adults is probably the best known for its accuracy albeit there are hundreds of tests on line that folks can take if they just want to feel good about themselves. To me, if a person really wants to take a test based on one’s knowledge, a military GT test is better than most on-line IQ tests.

    In essence, a good test will give a person some problems in three or four different categories to solve in which the person has to connect the dots so to speak in order to come up with a solution.
    How quickly and accurately the problems are solved is where the score is derived.

    Where the groan comes in is the fact, as @John Brunner and myself were relating to is that it seems that our younger generations are having problems with using logic as in, with logic one can reason. They can push buttons to get an answer because that’s the only method they know instead of allowing their own brains to come up with an answer where logic is the main component of arriving at an answer.

    In essence, our younger generation’s brains aren’t being given enough information in order to connect the dots themselves.
    If a person has seen a tree but has never seen a leaf until he saw one on the ground, how would he know that the leaf fell from the tree?
    In today’s world, one takes a picture of the leaf and the app tells you that the leaf came from the tree it is directly under.

    Then there's those kids and 20 somethings who can't read an analog clock. As a result they don't even have a rough idea of how long a minute or an hour is. They are dependent on computers and devices to tell them what's what. Google, tell me the meaning of life.

    And they think "clock wise" means you can tell the difference between a Timex and a Rolex.

    Without a doubt, I did groan a bit at first when the bear did his deed but to tell the truth, it’s one of the funniest videos I have ever seen.
