    @Vamp: I live in San Antonio. If only if it was "wet" more often. This place is like some scene out of the wild west sometimes.

    I don't doubt your reasoning though. Occasionally I can think like that.. But I don't think I do fulltime.

    Took it again and got 68.38. It seems I missed a page last time by over-clicking ...page three was completely unfamiliar to me, so that's probably what slightly raised my score, because I still don't see a connection between "Wet" and "Armadillo" but Texas and ear.

    I like structure, I think.

    I'm convinced that the bit with connecting the words (the "armadillo" part) features completely unrelated words and that you were scored not on correctly identifying connections, but simply on the number of boxes you clicked. I guess they figured if you can see a connection where none exists, that's creative.

    I'm telling you folks to stop taking away from the scores of others. "people who got high scores must be just picking the weirdest answers" is not constructive or helpful and reads like someone who is mad that they didn't get a high score and taking it out on others. So butthurt that some random internet test doesn't tell you what you want to hear that you try to invalidate others' results. Classy.

    How do you know for sure that none exists? That's just YOUR perspective on things.

    I like how people are basically saying "I didn't see anything there so there isn't anything there. Anyone who sees anything there is just being random." because that's logical and mature. What works for you works for everyone, right?

    There are other parts of Texas. There's even hot, sticky marshland and places with trees. If you thought of it as the wild west (which it is, historically) that could cloud your perception. The Wild West, historically, included plains, wet land and the dessert so the wild west wasn't just that one thing therefore Texas isn't just that one thing.

    That's the point of the test and why some people see all the choices as "random" and in no way connected. You've already put "texas" in a box in your mind. If you put anything else into a box like that were it could only be one or two things it becomes inflexible and the test scores you low.

    But oh well, just because you guys didn't see the connections definitely means there are none. Yup.

    Oh, you know, one of the countless people you've gone off on for no apparent reason in your irrational, childish fits of pique.

    I'm not butthurt at all. I was just expressing my opinion, but it was in no way directed at you, you just chose to take it that way, because apparently you're the person who is ALMOST CONSTANTLY butthurt about something. I don't base my self-esteem or creativity on an Internet test. I actually question the validity of this test much in the same way Tawanda did.

    72.56, scoring highest in connection, perspective, abstraction, and curiosity, but shittily in persistence. Pretty well in paradox as well.

    ... You don't want to know how I related armadillo with wet and laptop...

    Between everything that exists, there is a connection. Everything is connected through thinghood, even between things that are non-existent. There is an infinite number of ways things are connected! It's just a matter of uncovering them and tearing down the mental brick.

    87.53 highest in boldness, complexity, paradox, curiosity

    there were no rules about how the words are to be connected. if you impose strict rules upon yourself or feel compelled to impose rules upon yourself - you're prone to self-censorship, which hinders creativity. it's like brainstorming - if you let your thoughts flow - a random great thought might appear amidst the mess.

    raw creativity doesn't necessarily mean you're any good at applying your creativity to solve problems though - you might just be random and silly and useless.

    agree test is too word-based.

    I'm not even criticizing you or saying what you can't think. I'm happy with my score, if that makes you feel better. If anything, I'm just pointing how my instinct to be critical and/or self-referential does me in. I can think of these different possibilities, but the way my mind works is to cut down options a bit.
