Other Important Things to Know
The census is also meant to be fun to take. Question A7 asked “How many times can you spin around in a circle before you become uncomfortably dizzy?” with options “1”, “2-3”, “4-6”, “7-19” and “10+ I am superhuman”.
Below, question A8 asked “When answering A7 above (regarding spinning and dizziness) did you actually spin around to check?” The possible responses were “I already knew the exact answer.”, “Nope, I guessed”, “I did, but I didn’t push it.” and “Yes! I’m still kinda dizzy.”
The results are pretty interesting. First, most folks admitted to guessing. And they guessed significantly lower than folks that actually spun! So I guess the moral here is that if someone claiming to be a scientist asks you to spin around in circles, you should do it if you ever want to know your true potential.
