Their result for The Writing Systems Test ...

Tolkien

61% Knowledge of writing systems!

You're awesome like Tolkien. You've got quite an interest in languages and use your (magical?) powers for totally cool purposes.

Also here's the answer key real quick.

 

1. Latin alphabet

2. Runic alphabet (Scandinavian)

3. Japanese

4. Syllabary

5. Cyrillic alphabet

6. Arabic

7. Tibetan script

8. Hebrew alphabet (Trivia: If you speak both Swedish and Hebrew you'll find that the sample text apparently reads something like "tjenamors galosch". How about that. =)

9. Decades

10. Tengwar

11. Cuneiform.

12. Greek alphabet

13. Alphabet

14. Glagolitic

15. Syriac (And the third option quote is from Cool Hand Luke, for those who were wondering about *that*.)

16. Gothic alphabet

17. Devanagari

18. True

19. Phoenician alphabet

20. Klingon

21. Braille

22. "I don't know" - because you don't ;-)

23. "I don't know" The language/cipher/hoax/whatever in question is from the Voynich manuscript, an unsolved mystery. (Although apparently it has been solved, or so I was told after writing this test, but I choose to ignore that because an unsolved mystery is so much cooler than a solved one. Especially if the solution is a boring one. =P )
