gacked from thewronghands...

...what my stats would be as a D & D character.

Well, given this dexterity and strength, probably not an adventurer actually. Though I am annoyed that the only strength data point seemed to be about how much you can bench press. Ah well. And intelligence seemed only to measure your SAT score/IQ, so I'm fairly sure that I'm not "olympic-level" intelligent. But it's nice to be told it, anyway, I suppose. My wisdom also feels rather inflated.

You scored 6 Strength, 11 Constitution, and 10 Dexterity!
All stats are based on the original D&D system of 3-18. 3 being tragically weak and 18 being olympic level ability.

You scored 18 Intelligence, 13 Wisdom, and 12 Charisma!

Obviously, the real me ought to be some sort of stay-out-of-the-melee magic-user. That would actually be quite satisfactory.

For amusement's sake, get your own stats - mental and physical.

I say bah to the intelligence questions; being non-American I couldn't use SAT scores which would surely have got me 18, and was stuck with IQ which I'm pretty sure doesn't correspond as given at all. (And then I went with an average-IQ-test score, resulting in 16, that various IQ tests could put me anywhere from 14 to a high-18. Holly proves this, by having approximately the same IQ as me but having a percentile score she can convert to SAT and thus easily claim 18.)

And bah to the strength rating, that I don't remember what I bench-pressed the one time I did a weights thing, but I *think* it was 120lb, but that was for repetitions anyway and also 8-10 years ago, so I have no idea at all what my do-it-once maximum benchpress is now.

And bah to all the others too, of course. I am highly constitutional and dexterous (14), mehly wise and charismatic (11). Which is fair enough what with wisdom being measured as D&D cleric-goo rather than as anything worthwhile, and charisma half being measured on results rather than potential. (If you never leave the house, you are not charismatic.)

Also, I think people lie. They took one IQ test that's on the higher scale (there's a test that tops out at about 140, and a test that tops out at about 200, and comparing the results between them without knowing that is meaningless). I bet a lot of people have gotten varying IQ results, and took the highest. (I must admit that I did that. I doubt I am alone.)

Mehly is a great word.

What would my stats make me? Besides lame.

Mm, that's why I mentioned going with an average. At the low end, I've IQ'd at one-twenty-some, on IQ tests where the average and standard deviation were taken from people who were taking an IQ test for their own amusement on a website (thus obviously a skewed baseline). At the high end, I've scored "170+" on a test that didn't go beyond that. But the going-with-highest-option effect doesn't annoy me as much as the SAT/IQ non-parallel.

I do wonder whether they *should* be parallel though - both are supposed to score by percentiles, and it's possible the person did the math and matched them up to theoretical equivalent boundaries.
