A friend sent this to me...it came as an Excel attachment which, when you answer, tells you if you are right or wrong. It's now become a micro-obsession to figure the thing out...I've got 14 so far (about 15 minutes worth)...can you do it?

You have to work out what the letters mean. See No 0 as and example. According to MENSA, if you get 19+ of these, you are a 'genius'. Only 2 MENSA members achieved full marks. See how well you do.

Scoring: 1-5 Average, 6-11 somewhat intelligent, 12 to 18 intelligent, 19+ Genius

geniuses rarely think they are....I got the easy one's (well, not the bible ones) but others like the 8 T on a O weren't what I thought they were.....and 5 T on a F is definatly NOT 5 Teeth on a Fish

23 P of C in the H B
Psalms of Christ in the Holy Bible

I did one of these at work a couple of months ago. There were 80 on the version I got. I got 67 of them with no help (taking top honors at the office).

When you guys are ready for some more, let me know.

BTW, the 'test' is not really an indicator of intelligence; it's more or less a mental flexibility exercise. I'm not sure about the 'MENSA' rumor...

I think you're wrong on '23 P of C in the H B'.

I already researched that one. It would be the 'Hebrew Bible' anyway...

I also thought it was 'prophecies' but there are 25 of those...
