Stopped taking it after it asked for High School GPA. Like that really matters in life.

tree fiddy...

But if we're being serious, I use a site mint.com and you can link your accounts and debt (ie student loans, cc, checking, savings, 401K) and in addition to fancy graphs to track your spending and helping you budget, there is a total worth.

@eraten: I think the whole point of the website is that it doesn't really matter.

vote-for6vote-against

It must either be inaccurate or random. I scored $3,041,090. And I didn't answer all the questions.

@eraten: I agree. I tried as well but stopped after realizing I would have to take an IQ test and a amidumb.com test.

Cool concept though.

So, I just took it, ended up being worth $2,348,822.
Hmmm. I tried to determine if changing the reported ethnicity changed the results, but it did not. I expected it to change. It must be for data mining.

You are worth exactly $2,827,298

vote-for3vote-against

You are worth exactly $2,447,216.

I did it and it said I'm "priceless." Not sure that's a good thing or a bad thing, though. Either you can't afford me or no one would pay a cent for me. :D

vote-for3vote-against

so when you guys take the tests involved in that IQ part where it says 1, 7 , 26, 46, 89, 126. and which number doesnt belong?
How do you go about solving that?
(btw that example is completely made up)

vote-for5vote-against

You are worth exactly $2,562,830.

Hmmm. After all of that I suspect that it just looks at your age and income, or something like that. I went back and tweaked some other answers significantly with no change to my final score. I scored 25/25 on the amidumb test, although it is outdated. (The current PM of the UK is David Cameron, who was not even listed. I went ahead and checked Gordon Brown, who was his predessecor, and it seemed to like that answer.)

Interesting!

@wootfast: There were a few different examples. One of them was multiplying consecutive numbers by its square.

vote-for3vote-against

@mrsbeny: but how did you arrive at that answer? was it just prior knowledge of a similar pattern or did you recognize a pattern?
i fear i am colorblind asking someone what a color is like.

vote-for4vote-against

@wootfast I suppose I just recognized a pattern. I'm sure I have come across it before, I like playing with that sort of puzzle. Sudoku, too. I'm a numbers person and a puzzle person so it works well for me.
Spatial Reasoning is my weak spot. I can't follow picture directions to save my live, can't figure out a way to make the thing in my hand to look like the thing on the paper; the men in my life just shake their heads. So in a way I know what you mean about being color blind.

vote-for6vote-against

@wootfast: I agree, it's just something you pick up. I love numbers/math/logic, anything along those lines. So when I look at those numbers, it's not difficult for me to determine the relationship.

vote-for4vote-against

@wootfast: When I see those number sequences, my thought process is "What would have brought the previous number to the next number" and then apply it to consecutive numbers to see if it is consistent across the sequence.
1 1 2 3 5 8 13
is a common sequence to see, I look at the first number and second number and ask what brought the second number:
1 1
Could be multiplied by itself, could be added to the previous number, could be divided by itself so you go to the next number:
2
I look at that 2 and think, what does 2 have in common with the previous numbers, well - 1 + 1 = 2, the two previous numbers were 1 1 - I wonder if this is a constant with the pattern, check the next number:
3
Yes, it worked - the two previous numbers (1 and 2) add up to be 3.
And so on... That's a basic example but it's the thought process that I use. Figuring out the one with the squares took a bit more time.

Well, it's weird, and it's creepy, and I didn't play, especially after seeing some of the other sites hosted on that same machine.

Wait. What? They're selling dead people? Oh, noes!!! Soylent Green is PEOPLE!

I'm with whoever suggested it was data mining...and how much would Hawking be worth, considering that they're using athletic ability as part of the value?

[Edit] Also, who is Cybermill, and why do they want the answers to all of this?

vote-for4vote-against

@lumpthar: I went through the survey and left it all blank except for the maxing out the income and go the same result. I'm going to guess your result gets cached. You'd have to clear your browsing data and redo the survey to find out if reported ethnicity changes the result.

i filled it in, rarely accurately, and got "You are worth exactly $3,823,190"

Sorry, guys. I am starting to wish I hadn't participated.
As I poke around more and more, the site gets more and more suspicious.
A quick Whois search revealed:

Some data mining company is going to a lot of trouble to hide who they are.

I'm worth $2,513,088? Ha, I wish.

I have $25 and a lotto ticket in my pocket.....ask me again after the drawing!

vote-for6vote-against

@lumpthar: Most people use whois privacy services these days. If you don't you get all sorts of domain-related spam constantly. At this point all my domain registrations are handled in a similar manner and I recommend the whole of the wooterbase follow suit. It's just too public a place to have that much data available.

HOWEVER, all that said, this is totally about data mining. I agree with your recommendation not to touch it.

@lumpthar: I tend to be leery of any site that starts out asking for your complete w/year birth date.
