You are a genius!
Congrats! You have a great result. Probably, you guess about your talents without this quiz since this genius cannot go unnoticed. And you can't hide it either. You knowledge slops over and sometimes even floods people around. Brag about this result to your friends!
You have a talent!
Talent is not a coincidence. Nature gives it not to everybody, but this doesn't mean that you have nothing to work on. You aren't so far away from genius, you just need to compose yourself, switch on attentiveness and read a couple of books. Brag about this result to your friends!
You have abilities
Nature gifted you the abilities for logical reasoning, but you rarely use them. That's why your skills of deduction and induction leave much to be desired. You can develop them to genius, but be ready for a long and complicated way.
Sorry, but you are not a genius.
You have troubles with logical problems, mathematical formulas, and physical laws. All these scientific terms are not for you. It seems you more at home with liberal arts, creativity, or sport. Don't get hung up on complex solutions. Nonetheless, there's room for improvement.
