Their result for The Writing Systems Test ...
Ventris & Chadwick
91% Knowledge of writing systems!
If knowledge of writing systems were a pyramid, you would be the eye that sits at the top and is, let's assume, all-knowing. (And rather creepy, but that's neither here nor there.) Some day you'll figure out that Voynich thing, I'm sure.
Also here's the answer key real quick.
1. Latin alphabet
2. Runic alphabet (Scandinavian)
5. Cyrillic alphabet
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. =)
10. Tengwar (It is Tolkien's Middle-Earthen conscript, for those who were wondering.)
12. Greek alphabet
15. Syriac (And the third option quote is from Cool Hand Luke, for those who were wondering about *that*.)
16. Gothic alphabet
19. Phoenician alphabet
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 )
