    This is similar to those IQ tests, only this determines
    how aware of your senses you are.

    I scored a paltry 10/20 :(

    It's not that easy though, but if you get one of the highest scores you can get a picture of yer brain!? :eek:

    Have Fun!..Find it here

    It would be better if the results were not only based on whether you anwered correctly or not, but how close you were to being correct on those questions that were interactive. 12/20 - pretty tough challenge.

    True, it is designed to fool your brain, there were a few optical illusions i've seen countless times before. Difference is this time the clock's ticking.
    There is further info on each of the questions, what senses/parts of the brain do they tax via a link on the individual question pages.
    Think I know what you mean though, some kinda report explaining why you probably chose the answers you did.
    There was some kinda summary link at the end, but I never followed it.

    I guess the test is kinda flawed anyway. After all, you can't smell or taste via a website, and the only touch sensation is via force-feedback, and I can't believe they overlooked the potential on that :)

    I actually got the taste questions correct, and I thought they made sense. It wasn't about which foods you would actually want to eat together or not, but which were complimentary according to taste. You have to imagine the separate tastes, and then combine them to see if they fit well. If it were just a taste test, that would be easy.
    The test is definitely flawed, and another complaint I have is that the 15-20 seconds available is partly taken up by reading the question. In addition, I would have liked to know in advance that some questions required a single answer, while others would require multiple answers. I missed one because I didn't realize it was going to give me 10 examples to answer.

    The first questions seemed appropriate, even the food ones. A few questions didn't seem right for that kind of test though. I was under the impression that it was supposed to test your senses, not test your knowledge about them as well. Asking you if you know what smell activates what part of the brain isn't testing your senses, its testing your knowledge. Oh well it killed a few minutes of a boring day, no complaints.

    And as for the pineapple with soy sauce... chinese food I eats a lot of it. :p And the butyric acid in parmesian cheese I learned that one from a friend who's a chef at an Italian resaurant (her roommate's a doctor and she told her). :D

    19/20 - that first one is well difficult - couldnt work out whether to do it longer or shorter - the bottom one always looked shorter to me :/

    caviar with white chocolate was a pure guess though as they all looked pretty awful lol
