Yeah, the add 60 part of it isn't proportional, so that might be where the difference comes in. I would assume that the higher you go up the more you would need to add on (70,80, etc) and vice versa for lower scores.

"Eli Manning scored a 39, putting him in the 99th percentile of last year's two and a half million Wonderlic test takers."
Double that 39 and add 60, and you get 138--which I think is *not* in the 99th %ile for IQ.

I dunno, Alex Smith got a perfect score on it
while Vince Young got a hilarous score on it.
Both extremes seen to force failure in sports.

A quick search with Google said that you can *roughly* estimate your IQ by doubling the Wonderlic score and adding 60. Hence 20 corresponds to 100 (average) IQ.

So who knows.
I stand corrected. Your statement is verified here:

You are right. A 138 implies a 99.43 percentile (assuming a normal distribution with mean = 100, SD = 15, the distribution that the IQ test supposedly produces). In my eyes 99.43 is pretty close to 99, but I guess I'm not very precise.
I don't know anything about the questions but wouldn't randomly guessing on every question would yield a score higher than 6.

Ryan Fitz scored a 48 on it. Vince Young did score a 6 and his agent hastily arranged for him to take again and he scored like a 12. What the heck was he doing for 4 years at the University of Texas? It is not a hard test.
Randomly guessing every score on the test could yield a score but it doesn't have to as your comment implies.
