Fun. I found I was more accurate than I believed possible.

lol I got 13.23 but I thought it was a race against time.. with 68 seconds :)
then I got 8.23 in 99 seconds.. I think this is why I allways use rulers/etc.. :)

I did ok except for the parallelograms.

Your inaccuracy by category:

Parallelogram 2.2 9.5 2.0
Midpoint 4.5 5.1 2.2
Bisect angle 4.3 4.5 1.9
Triangle center 1.7 1.9 3.0
Circle center 2.0 4.1 2.8
Right angle 0.3 6.9 2.9
Convergence 5.7 5.0 5.1

Average error: 3.70 (lower is better)
Time taken: 184.5

My eyeball s pretty good but my LCD monitor doesn't work with my computer' screen resolution. Stuff is elongated about 12%. Yeah, I know: alibis, but most figures I got within 2 or 3 units. Some like the right triangle one aand parallelogram I usually blew by 14 to 20 units.

I did well on the right angles, generally under 1 unit. I couldn't do the parallelograms!

My scores were interesting: Left handed - 3.24/285, Rightie - 3.20/252.

I'm right handed but switched sides with the mouse a couple years ago due to RMI right shoulder pain. Apparently, my eyesight/judgement is the same, just takes longer to get there on the left side.:)

That was fun, thanks, Did 6.91, not very good on the find the equidistant in a triangle, did best on the angle bisecting,

4.87 in 143, (After 10 trys) No wonder the decals I put on the trucks at work always look crooked. Turns out I am putting them on straight but I see them crooked :). John

I found:-
1: Slowing things down made a big big difference...
2: Bisecting angle was easier using a short line (?)
3: Midpoint was easier with head tilted so line 'horizontal'.
4: Judging centre of triangle was easier by imagining bisecting angles rather than the inscribed circle. (Still found it the hardest one...)

Anyway, good result :cool:, but crap consistency :( , so probably just got lucky. (Right angles got the average down though :) )
