96%, but. . .I sort of cheat: for my job I am trained to process visual information quickly.

Any other sort of test that actually requires thinking and I'd be bottom-of-the-barrel. :)

102 tests 86% should have quit whilst ahead
it's a very simple test but you must watch very carefuly as each immage only lasts 200 milli seconds (0.2sec).Seems longer!

84%. It's a tachistoscopic test and I don't think it has anything to do with mathematical proficiency. Better concentration will probably give better results. It is interesting.
