[prMac.com] Zaporozhye, Ukraine - Developed by Information Security Center Ltd., Smoordie IQ Pro isn't just a reasoning test. It's really special - despite being packed with humor and supposedly nonsensical words, it is all the same a real psychological test that assesses users' performance in logical reasoning area. This test "for grown-ups and really smart kids" is now available as an application for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad.
The test is available in seven languages: English, German, Spanish, Italian, French, Russian, and Ukrainian. There also are two versions of the application - a free version and a commercial one. In the free version after completing the test users will see their score on a 1-30 scale. (One correct answer stands for 1 point). In the commercial version users will also see what answer is correct and what isn't.
The application is based on 'Reasoning Test for grown-ups and really smart kids' created by a well-known psychologist Miroslav Voynarovsky. In spite of being "funny", this test indeed estimates the person's ability to separate correct logical consequences from incorrect ones. Shmoordie, Grymzie, Butryak, Uuzka, Pufelka and other "characters" mentioned in the test aren't used "just for fun" - they help to concentrate exactly on logical connections between statements and logical corollaries which follow from them. Actually, it is NOT important at all who Shmoordie is or what Pufelkas look like - the aim is to pick only one logical corollary - the correct one - out of three. Smart and funny questions will make you "exercise your brains", besides, when passing through 30 points of the test, you will never have a dull moment.
In fact, this test can well be used as, so to speak, "a logical fitness machine", or as "an uplifter of the spirits". It really works! And please take the result easy - don't forget that the test is humorous.
