About This Quiz

Being clever and being intelligent are two completely different things. While you might be able to outsmart your boss, are you smart enough to fool your entire office? After you answer the questions in our clever quiz, we'll be able to tell you exactly what percent clever you really are! 

You might be able to solve the most complex math problem in your accounting department's books, but could you keep your pants up if you forgot your belt? While some of us are born with cleverness running through our veins, others struggle as much as your boss struggles to be a nice human being. Once you respond to our scenarios and tell us about yourself, we'll know where you fall on the scale of cleverness. 

Clever folks are usually filled with creativity and the ability to adapt to whatever life throws at them. You probably consider yourself one of the brightest people amongst your group of friends, but are you really? Let's take a look at the way you make it through the world, and we'll be the judge of how much cleverness you possess. Will you have bragging rights or a touch of humility when we're done? Let's get started and find out!
