PEW Research Global IQ Quiz

To test how much you know about the worldwide image of the United States, we invite you to take our short 10-question quiz. Then see how you did and browse our reports and interactive database to learn more about how people around the world view the U.S. and President Barack Obama, as well as their opinions on globalization, democracy, extremism and other important issues. The quiz is based on key findings from the Spring 2012 survey by the Pew Research Center’s Global Attitudes Project, conducted in 21 countries among 26,210 respondents from March 17 to April 20. The countries surveyed were Brazil, Britain, China, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Germany, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Pakistan, Poland, Russia, Spain, Tunisia, Turkey and the United States.

why take a poll from a place that conducted a poll and then pretends taking this poll proves your "IQ" on their poll. A bit too tail-bitey for me thanks.
