You Failed to Find the Odd Ones
Unfortunately, you did not manage to find the vast majority of the odd names out. Perhaps you don't recognize some of the names, which should motivate you to learn more history. On the other hand, you may not be focused at the moment or are so creative you just found other commonalities. In any case, we recommend you retake the test and see if you can get a better score. If not, check out the answers below.
You Did... OK.
You did OK but not great. You got less than half of the odd names out correctly. It could be, of course, that your history is a bit weak, or perhaps you thought of novel ways to group the names, so you thought of the wrong one. That sometimes happens, as we all think in different ways. Have a look below to see what our answers were.
You Have a Good Brain!
You managed to answer half to 4/5 of the names correctly. This means you not only have a sound mind for history and its endless list of names, but you can also make the appropriate connections between history, memory, and logic - to come at a correct conclusion. Way to go! You still had some mistakes, though, so maybe you'd like to take a peek below at the answers.
You ACED This Test!
You must have a superb brain. Not only does your history knowledge is powerful enough to recognize and identify names from the endless list of historical characters, but you were able to connect history, memory, and logic to come up with the right answers every time. That is impressive; you obviously have a powerful mind. Good job, we're proud!
