Measure your musical-visual intelligence!

Cool Catches Music test

Published on June 30th, 2013 | by Caesar (ENGAGE)


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%)
