    After taking the test a few times, I scored a 1.35 on the adaptive pitch test and an 80% on the rhythm test. I might take it a few more times to see if I can do a bit better. The scoring is a bit arbitrary so you may want to take it a few times. I was able to get it down to .375. What's interesting is I did better when I turned the volume lower. I'm curious to see what other gays will get. Have fun.

    I tried it once and got under 3 Hz average. I can tell more minute alterations but not always. Interestingly, I do have absolute pitch. So I can identify notes, chords and song keys just by listening and sing any pitches, "pulling them out of thin air". But I'm not more keen as a listener. Just able to label what I hear and audiate pitches autonomously.

    We are a cursed breed.


    In some respects, yes. We are. The listening experience can be ruined if a song happens in the "wrong key". Furthermore, it can compromise relative pitch and transposition skills. On the other hand, every major and minor key has a very distinct flavor and it can be really pleasant to hear certain ones in certain parts.

    Booyah!

    And I did get a few at 0.1875 difference.

    Exactly. People get annoyed when I spit out after half a bar "wrong key, dumbasses" and they say it doesn't matter and I just give them a blank stare. It does matter, bitches. It does matter. I honestly can't sing a song in the wrong key. It hurts.


    Youre bold enough to actually say out loud it the wrong key! Im too polite. I just keep quiet and try to go along with the rest of the group and suffer in silence. icon_redface.gif

    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.

    FitAquarian saidInteresting results. I wonder if those who scored lower than 1 can tell the difference between the differences in digital encoded mp3 and non mp3 formats and vinyl vs. CD's.


    the fuck is a CD

    Interesting results. I wonder if those who scored lower than 1 can tell the difference between the differences in digital encoded mp3 and non mp3 formats and vinyl vs. CD's. I noticed that the mastering of new CD's are way too loud so you miss out on a lot of dynamics in the middle frequencies. It's odd how I noticed these frequencies when I turn down the volume, although a part of me still likes to listen to certain types of music loud.

    Adaptive test - 0.5625 Hz
    rhytmn test - 88.9%
    tonedeaf : 77.8%
    Musical - Visual : 45%

    I don't know what musical visual is that some of it sounds so eerie to me.
