    Default Drug Use and Frontal Lobe Performance (online quiz)

    First, please take this interesting and fun online quiz:
    Task Switching Experiment

    When you get the results, please answer the poll.

    1) Classify yourself according to your score on the quiz (Above average, average, or below average).

    2) Classify yourself according to drug use, past or present. A prolific user would be someone who uses or has used many drugs, or someone who uses drugs frequently. I'm focusing on the popular definition of "drugs," which includes alcohol, prescription drugs, pot, and all (other) illegal drugs.

    Comments are welcome, of course. Do you think that drug use would affect performance on this quiz?

    Other -- test was too annoying to finish / occasional drug user.

    What was up with the word feeling and emotion alternating below the faces during the first trial?

    I wonder if a person's type would affect their score on this quiz. Maybe INFPs are more likely to flake out before the quiz is finished.

    They're just adding more complexity to the task -- two different ways to trigger the same response, so you can't just do a binary "either/or" in your head, there are FOUR possibilities that could show up.

    But I think they also mix up the test. My first trial was gender, not emotion.

    What i didn't like once was that the keystroke didn't register... and I sat there waiting. So my score was wrong. And later it happened again. It really hosed the results. They should probably factor out any scores that don't fit within a particular cluster, as anomalies.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    I thought I was owning that test, until the third part. I think I would have done better if I took a little more time rather than the button mashing I did. I got below average.

    I'm not sure if drug use effected me on this, I really don't think the drugs I take make me mentally slower, they probably increase mental activity, but throughout the whole test I would be thinking about other things, or even thinking about the test overall and not what I was doing right then in the test.

    They should have factored in accuracy. Any old dolt can just whap away at keys as quickly as possible and get a super low score on the ms count. I know for a fact I messed up only once the entire time, but my scores were higher than average (815 ms for gender and 855 ms for emotion)

    BS test. I'm sure someone got paid for it, so good show for them, but uh, i'm pretty sure this test has little to do with sex/emotion recognition in the wild.

    i guess that is slightly above average, and i've never done drugs, except for occasional alcohol use.

    I got average, but...I was pretty terrible at the third part, accuracy should have counted as well. Not a drug user.
