There is nothing more sexy than a man that is fine ass hell, rich, and…….smart! Alot of these ballers have the money and looks but do they have the brain to go along with it? In the NFL, rookies are required to take the Wonderlic Test. According to Wikipedia, the Wonderlic Personnel Test (WPT) is a twelve-minute, fifty-question intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving in a wide range of occupations. The score is calculated as the number of correct answers given in the allotted time. A score of 20 is intended to indicate average intelligence (corresponding to an intelligence quotient of 100; a rough conversion is accomplished via the following formula: IQ = 2WPT + 60). The average NFL score is 21. By the way, here are some other interesting QB scores from over the years.
Michael Vick – 20
Marcus Vick – 11
Steve Young – 33
Drew Brees – 28
Tom Brady – 33
Chad Pennington – 25 (Remember, Pennington was once a finalist for the Rhodes Scholarship. Yikes.)
Drew Bledsoe – 37
Donovan McNabb – 14
David Garrard – 14
Dan Marino – 16
Eli Manning – 39
Jeff George – 10
Vince Young – allegedly got a 6, then retested and got a 15
Chris Leak – 8
John Elway – 30
Brett Favre – 22
The following shows the breakdown of scores by position:
Offensive tackle – 26
Center – 25
Quarterback – 24
Guard – 23
Tight end – 22
Safety – 19
Linebacker – 19
Cornerback – 18
Wide receiver – 17
Fullback – 17
Halfback – 16
By comparison, average scores of other professions:
Chemist – 31
Programmer – 29
Journalist – 26
Sales – 24
Bank teller – 22
Clerical worker – 21
Security guard – 17
Warehouse – 15
Therefore, a breakdown of the scoring looks like this:
50= highest possible score, superior intelligence…genius!
21= average intelligence
15= equivalent to unskilled WAREHOUSE WORKER
Below 15= dumb ass, bound to be bankrupted in three years!
By no means does a test give insight on a persons intellect. However, it does shed some light on his level of thinking. So ladies, when you meet an NFL baller in the club, rather than asking how much money he makes, ask him what is his Wonderlic test score! So how smart is your NFL baller? And how smart are you?
