    If by "our" , you mean the U.S., then It would seem strange that the U.S. Government would commission a study to be conducted by a Canadian company.
    With a name like psychometrics, I'm pretty sure that every other U.S.daytime talkshow would qualify for the funding.

    Shows on Fox News sure comes to mind as one of prime candidates, especially since congress is now controlled by republicans + extreme right wingers.

    I'm still on the page where this is just another Bull s*** IQ test phishing expedition. How much did I miss?

    The interesting thing is that the people who took this test were people who searched the web for IQ tests. It may not be possible to deduce a lot from this to the population in general. Still it's interesting that a lot of people with well below average IQ (according to the test) are searching for IQ tests.

    I think you may be confusing psychometrics with psychopathics
    I think you're fully up to speed.

    Google? or Apple? I am just speculating here ...... :D

    I think it would be nice if TS report the story linked by Mark, just to clear things up.
