This verbal association test can be completed relatively quickly as it has only 11 questions.

The test author is well known for his contributions to the online High IQ community and is the founder of the 'Hall of Sophia Society'.

Along with submitting your test answers to the test author's email address, you will need to attach (to the email) a copy of your personal ID. This prevents fraudulent activity, such as people attempting to enter the contest more than once under different names. Information other than your birth year, name and nationality may be masked. This information will not be shared.
Names of participants in the competition will not be displayed, except for the names of competition winners (after September 10, 2022) or their initials (if requested). A score list with names indicated by an * will be regularly updated and displayed on this page during the competition.

In the case of a tie of more than one winner (in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places), winners will split/share the cash award for individual prizes. It is preferred that winners accept their winnings through Paypal. I (Kirk R.
