Quiz: Are you a good eyeballer?

Here's a visual quiz where you can test your ability to eyeball things. Where's the midpoint? When is the line parallel? You get the idea. I started off horribly but improved enough to get a 2.18. I wonder if taking this quiz every day would help train me, so I'd eventually be able to cut paper and fabric without measuring ever again. Hmm. Somehow I doubt it.

I had 2.35. I must say that's a really good time waster.

Carmen Rose said...

I had 3.01 and nailed a 0.0 twice. Alas... my very first answer was so far off that there was no return! LOL! Very interesting indeed!

Katerina said...

I must offer a disclosure: Don't attempt this quiz if you can't remember your math. : ) Although the second time I tried it, I googled the terms first and did much better. : p

Jacqui said...

Wow, 2.18, that's impressive! I managed to get 2.5 on my second time around after I remembered what a parallelogram was. :P My weakest was finding the mid-point of the triangle. The best part about this is that I feel like I might actually be exercising my neurons a bit!

LilithEvy said...

So horrible... 8.33.. :o(

Jess said...

I agree; the triangle is definitely the hardest one. Yes, don't you feel smarter now that you've done it? It's like weight lifting for your brain. I figure I just delayed senility by about 5 minutes by taking that test.

Jess said...

Oops, that was in response to Jacqui. Lilith commented while I was typing. Lillith, I bet you anything that if you did it again your score would improve.

Sue said...

Neat!
That is addictive. My eyeballing skills are nowhere near as good as I thought they were.

KateKwiltz said...

That's so cool! I have a problem with the parallelogram, though -- I keep trying to put it in perspective!

scott garrette said...

very addictive, I think I got a 4 something... but I can level the art on my wall really well :P

Lena said...

3.88 on the second try. I am going back for another!

Jess said...

Determination! Excellent! (Or maybe addiction.)

Patchwork Penguin said...

5.39 for me!! Thanks for sharing.

4.41

that damn parallelogram! i made that 90 degree angle every time almost exactly..

grr - super neat though!

Didn't do so hot... For some reason my "centers" always leans a little to the right. All I have to say is thank goodness for the Align tool in Illustrator/Photoshop or my design skills would be SOL- ha ha! Have a great weekend!

Sara said...

so fun...and so addicting.

megan v said...

wow. well i did terribly compared to you (and apparently compared to the other commenters!) but in the midst of my terrible score, I specialized in Bisecting the angle getting it almost spot on every time!
fun!! i think i didn't do so well because it's been so darn long since geometry class. equidistant to the edges? huh?? :)

Catalina said...

This is great! I'm not good at it but getting better fast!

LOL!

Janis said...

Good golly, on my third try I'm still in the 4's! Are you all seriously in the twos?! Good grief! I agree with Sue, I'm not nearly as good as I thought I was!

And indeed it took me a couple of tries before I even understood what they were looking for on equi-distant triangle prompts.

I got a 10.12 and thought to myself "10 - that must be good' - ok, not so much. Maybe I should put my glasses on and try again. :D

tamdoll said...

Ouch. I thought I was good at this on fabric until I got an 8.06 here on my screen. Must find my eyeglasses and try again later!

Shannon said...

Oh dear...even though this was fun I stink at it:(

Caren said...

I'm addicted...

homemoma said...

uhh, i really stink at that game. even after 8th try i got only 3,13 but on my first try (got 10,8) i had no idea what the questions were.

Jean said...

i got 4.66 first try. i'd like to beat the person who had 0.88. i'll just have to do it 10 times a day and i'll get there. :D
that was fun!

lindsey clare said...

i got 5.9 or something equally dire! how embarrassing ;)

amy said...

What a good one! I was a 3 something. Not bad, but not as good as some of you guys!

Cathy from Wire and Wool said...

This is pretty addicting and I'll be bookmarking this! I got a 5.31...I will need to try again when kidos are in school.

Tiff said...

I got better over time but my mouse grew a mind of it's own so I couldn't do the test but twice.

rita said...

10,18

Jennie Bee said...

My best was around 4.3. apparently I can't eye ball well.. maybe i'll try again today:)

KristinB said...

I loved that! I could definitely spend way too much time on that. I hate measuring things and ALWAYS eyeball. This is good practice. :)

Meg said...

I failed a drafting class due to my eyeballing. He swore up and down I was tracing others drawings. But I wasn't. I wish I had this quiz back then.

Ryan Green said...

this was fun, but i think i would have done better if i paid more attention in geometry...or maybe kindergarten. i forgot what a parallelogram is and what "equidistant" means. ooops.

meswartz said...

Ubergeek hubby scored less than 2 on the first go. I *knew* he'd love that link! Thanks for posting it!

littleandcute said...

i got a 4 something, i need to go for round two now! pretty addicting... math is fun now!

shanon said...

I love that game! It took me about 3 times to understand exactly what I was trying to accomplish though. Haha!
