I did it quickly and don't think I always hit the key I meant to. Is there a dexterity test I could take?
In adaptive pitch I got: "at 500 hz you can reliably differentiate two tones 1.35 hz apart" putting me between a very good and an exceptional ear. I scored only in the 59th percentile in Hertz. But I did all the guys behind the counter at Avis.
Only 68.0% correct on the rhythm. Between normal and very good but I was surprised at that. I could probably listen better and improve that score.
and 77% on the tonedeaf only between normal and very good. Curiously I found myself hitting the "same" button while my brain was telling me eh, it was close enough. so I think I just got lazy.
I visual scored 75% (rated between very good & excellent) but I didn’t really know what I was supposed to be doing until I got into it a few. Within that score I subscored a pitch discrimination of 66.7% (only normal, bummer); musical memory 77.5% (between very good & excellent); contour discrimination 72.3% (between very good & excellent); attention 73.1% (between very good & excellent); musical/visual abstraction 79.6% (very near excellent). As I completely fucked up the first couple before I figured out what I was doing I’m pretty sure I could improve those scores. I wouldn't have thought of coordinating music with a symbolic visual representation before. That test was actually fun.
I like the memory and attention scores as they make me think I might still be generally safe from the ravages of Alzheimer's so far.
That was pretty interesting to me as I never took a test like that before or even thought about. When it comes to playing instruments, I'm a basketcase. Well, except for the kazoo. I had both piano and guitar lessons as a kid, can play individual notes by heart pretty much from just hearing a tune once and I can whistle a symphonic piece without missing a note, but I can not coordinate my fingers to make music. I have the same problem with drawing and I have tried. It can be pretty frustrating,actually because I would love to do both so I am left to admire those who can.
