Their result for The Complete Chess Player's Test ...

Aware Hobbyist

You scored 68% chess cultured and 66% chess skilled.

Not bad. You've got a bit of culture with you and you know a thing or two around the chess board. You've still got a lot to learn though. Fortunately, learning chess is a fun experience. Maybe pick up a chess book and play some games online to ease yourself into the scene. Chess for Dummies by James Eade is a good place to start. Maybe even try a game at your local park. They´ll likely beat you pretty good, but imagine how much you´ll learn. Just be a good sport and try to take everything in. Who knows where you'll go from there?
