How good are you at lining things up? [More:] I suck. I got a 7.
I suck more. 9.98.

I suck less(ish). I got a 3.9; the parallelogram was not kind.

2.33. I'm an architectural designer, so that helps me, but I have to say if the mouse cursor disappeared while you were manipulating the point, I'd do better...

I am evidently not very good at lining things up.

5.52. The triangle center killed me.

Um 20.something. I knew this about myself. I has astigmatism.

Ahhh, I got a 2.0 and was wondering why I didn't get to put my name on the list, then I realized that you have to do all three rounds. Then I was doing pretty well (got two 0.0s!) then I let go the mouse before I was ready and blew it. (This is hard to do on a laptop pad.)

May be addicted already.

All lined up.

4.86. Not bad on a laptop.

2.90 (this was posted to the blue a few days ago), on a laptop.

5.26. I suck. I got a 0.8 on bisecting angles, though, so that's good. But how can I be good at the right angle, but so horrible at the parallelogram?

My second attempt was 3.22, but I still think I need glasses.

I got 8.something but a co worker came in while I was finding the convergence and I had to unclick, thereby skewing my score to incompetence.

Did you fall down doing it?
posted by danf 17 October | 17:39
3.38, sigh. I thought I'd be better. This is the kind of thing I used to be really good at (or at least I would have thought). I consistently missed the center of the circle, too high. I was also not too good at the triangle equidistant thing.

No, I didn't fall down. I did it again, and got 12.something drubunk. So there's that.

4.35 However, the second test, "find the centerpoint of a line segment" seems a bit unfair. Since it's movable, I imagine it as a rubber band between two nails - and therefore, your most accurate centering on a percentage error basis will be when you stretch it as far as possible. I guess a line is the minimal distance between two points, so... harumph.

6.3. I did somewhat better on the (smaller, lower-resolution) monitor at work than I did just now at home. Then again, I wasn't drinking at work.

4.52! better than i thought i'd do...

3.79. With astigmatism using a laptop trackpad on a fast-moving train and in a super-cranky mood. I did the same "rubber band" thing with the midpoint the first time, too.
