Test for Intellectual Compatibility
Discovering mutual compatibility
By Lester R. Grubé

Often while I'm having breakfast I like to mull over some of the more memorable moments from the previous night's TV viewing. There is a particular commercial that comes on from time to time that always gives me pause. It's the one about Negroes that ends with the observation that it's a terrible thing to waste a human mind. And although I personally am 100 percent white, I can still identify with the concern. It's especially important in the realm of dating to use our brains. How often have you spent a miserable evening with someone that may have been your sexual or physical ideal but who lacked a compatible mindset on many of the day's more pressing issues?

n the interest of preventing such terrible mismatches I devised a simple test for intellectual compatibility. I know that it works too, because I tested it on the most compatible couple I know, Dynette Sett and Margene Lurkapoodis, who scored a perfect ten. It also works the other way. I tried it on this super scuzball loser who thinks he is so smart just because he lost 30 pounds on the grapefruit fatburner plan, and he and I didn't have any answers the same. In fact, he even tried to discount the significance of this revealing result by telling me he thought the whole test was stupid! Who is he trying to kid?

The important thing to remember is that there are no really right or wrong answers per se, only right and wrong answers from the point of view of discovering mutual compatibility.

So please, do yourself a favor. The next time you're considering going out with someone, ask the individual a few of the following questions first. You may just be saving yourself a great deal of heartache.
