There was much debate yesterday after RDT posted Claiborne's alleged Wonderlic test score of a 4. Having spent the better part of the past 20 years actually giving this test to prospective applicants at my firm I can feel safe in saying to achieve a 4 you have to either purposively answer questions incorrectly or be just about as stupid as a human can be.
To prove my point I give you four actual Wonderlic questions that appear on a version of their current test. To understand what a 4 represents - Claiborne would have to answer two of these incorrectly and then answer all remaining 46 questions wrong as well. A four means he got 2 of the 50 right and that's it.
Take a look at these questions and ask yourself exactly how someone can get admitted to college if they cannot answer all four correctly.
