  • John Carlson: 40

According to Wikipedia, here are the average scores for a couple of common jobs in the Wonderlic:

  • Journalist – 26
  • Sales – 24
  • Bank teller – 22
  • Clerical worker – 21

For those unfamiliar with the Wonderlic, Wikiepedia defines it as:

The Wonderlic Personnel Test is an intelligence test primarily known for being administered to prospective employees for the purposes of recruitment, placement, development and retention.[1] The Wonderlic is a twelve-minute, fifty-question exam to assess aptitude for learning a job and adapting to solve problems for employees in a wide range of occupations. The score is calculated as the number of correct answers given in the allotted time. A score of 20 is intended to indicate average intelligence

 On a side note, for Mario Manningham’s sake, I really hope that 6 on the previously linked site is a misprint.
