    Well, that's not what I was trying to say there, but I have mentioned that earlier in the thread. It's just like with online IQ tests. People who take them and seek them out are quite a lot smarter than the average person. The average IQ for people taking online tests is something like 115 (84th percentile), while it is 100 in the general population. The thing is, I think these musical tests will attract people very interested in music and musicians to a larger degree than the average human, which makes the sample biased. Just how much better the sample is than the average population, I cannot now, but if it is along the lines of online IQ tests, it's about 1SD.

    Wikipedia on standard deviation (it's a statistical term): Standard deviation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Standard deviation kind of has to do with a standardized measure of deviation in statistical data. A small table on the meaning of it (hopefully you will get a sense of what it means then):

    -3SD: 0,1st percentile
    -2,5SD: 0,6th percentile
    -2SD: 2nd percentile
    -1,5SD: 6th percentile
    -1SD: 16th percentile
    -0,5SD: 31st percentile
    0SD: 50th percentile
    0,5SD: 69th percentile
    +1SD: 84th percentile
    +1,5SD: 93rd percentile
    +2SD: 98th percentile (Mensa membership requirement)
    +2,5SD: 99,4th percentile
    +3SD: 99,9th percentile

    (Notice the symmetry.)

    Truly, having some understanding have this has enhanced my quality of life!

    Pitch: 4.2Hz
    The rest: At first, I said "Fuck it" to because I could never remember the first phrase.

    But okay I did them, so:
    Rhythm: 84%
    Tone: 83.3% <- Wow, this one was surprising. Half of them I chuckled to myself thinking the phrase was too retardedly hard to remember. I think I may have done better when I stopped trying to consciously record the music, instead waiting to see if my unconscious (intuition?) picked up a difference. I might retake the test to check later but I'm too lazy now.

    It seems my pitch score is kinda low (high?) for my other scores, compared to the other results in this thread. I do tend to have a harder time than most (or so I believe) understanding verbal speech. Lyrics are especially troubling, and most especially lyrics in rap music. I instead am drawn to the overall melody and harmony and whatever musical interplay. If the test asked me about the overall "themes" (for the lack of a better word) in the music I think I could answer better.

    I played piano for 13 years (until I graduated high school) and played competitively (got one or two state championships in middle school until I got too lazy to practice in high school). Haven't touched a piano since two years ago, and although I just picked up the guitar it's not the same because I am hardly serious with it.

    Edit: Though, I wonder if my crappy onboard sound system affects the pitch test? 2.1Hz on two subsequent retests, btw... after I realized there was a replay button.

    Pitch ~1.5Hz

    Tone deaf 70% (the irony being I have close to perfect pitch - but I can't hear notes if the pitch is too low or too weird/electronic)

    The rhythym one wouldn't load but I know I kinda suck at rhythym, so I'll assume a low score.

    Rhythm 88.0
    Tonedeaf 86.1
    Adaptive pitch: I got 24 Hz the first time and 2.1 Hz the second time. Nothing weird happened so I have no idea why my score changed from the 0th to the 42nd percentile.
    Musical-visual: 85%. Weird but fun!
