This is a great music – visual intelligence test developed by Jake Mandell , a radiology student at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
What is AMVI?
Associative Musical Visual Intelligence (or “amvi” for short) is a type of intelligence that’s difficult enough to define, let alone test. Many creative people can associate across sensory domains: they “hear” hints of shapes and can “taste” the essense of colors. At its most extreme this phenomenon is called synesthesia .
Like the tonedeaf test, this test is purposefully made very hard, so even trained musicians rarely score above 90% correct. However, no musical training is required to take the test: After the test, the statistics for each question are provided at the bottom of this post.
Average score: 72.0%
(Standard Deviation 15.6%)
The following table shows what percentage of first-time test-takers got each trial correct.
