A friend, Dawn, emailed this Gullibility Factor Test to me, and I thought you might be interested to try it, too.
I missed these questions;
- The fluoride added to drinking water is sourced from naturally-occurring fluoride mineral deposits. Ew! This is way worse than the Cochineal beetles that seem to gross these people out .. incidentally, if beetles bother the writers of this test, why didn't they ask how many insect parts are in the canned food that we routinely eat? Or how many cockroach legs are found in dishes served in the average New York restaurant?
All the clean hydrogen we need to power the world is already contained in crystals at the bottom of the ocean called gas hydrates. Huh? I guess it's time for me to do some reading.
Having a baby is a patent violation because the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office routinely grants patents on human gene sequences found in all humans. Ooookay. Why does this make me laugh?
The test writers say this about moi;
Welcome to the top 5%. You're a true free thinker and a person who is well informed about the reality in which you live. Although you may have been easily manipulated earlier in life, you eventually gained lucidity and developed a healthy sense of skepticism that you now automatically apply to your observations and experiences. You are endlessly curious about human behavior and the nature of the universe, and you have one or more lifestyle habits that most people would consider odd or unusual. You are not only of very high intelligence, you are also extremely creative in one or more areas (music, art, software development, inventing, etc.)
If you were in The Matrix, you would have taken the red pill, completed the combat training, and started fighting (and beating) agents from day one.
Your architects: You have cast off reality distortions taught to you by your parents, schooling, corporate advertising and government propaganda. You create your own beliefs based on what serves you best, without much regard for what the rest of the crowd is doing. You are guided by your own internal code of ethics (which may or may not agree with politically-correct ethical codes) rather than any pre-set system of ethics (such as from any one religion).
My score was 91. What was yours?
