THE NFL DRAFT AND THE “WONDERLIC CONTEMPORARY COGNITIVE ABILITY TEST.”

Posted on: April 22, 2013

Ever wonder how NFL executives make important decisions regarding the potential of an NFL player they are considering drafting? One way is through the use of the Wonderlic Contemporary Cognitive Ability Test. This is a test that asks such questions as “Ink sells for 12 dollars per cartridge. What will six cartridges cost?” Now I might be missing something here but it seems to me that more important questions might be “Did you come from a loving, nurturing home environment?” or “How is your eye contact?” or “Do you keep your feelings and emotions bottled-up inside yourself? In other words, a self-esteem self-evaluation test that will tell executives in advance whether or not the player they are considering drafting will be able to focus and the possibility that he will become involved in an extra-marital affair even though he is married. I’m all for cognitive ability testing but in the case of NFL players, how they feel about themselves and whether or not their lives are in harmony seems to me to be a lot more important than the cost of ink.
