I won't give any spoilers and I won't comment on anything else except that it's nicely done.

Top 1%. I think I can apply now to be a special agent.  :D :D :D

Mark, whenever I try it, screen stiffens, I'm asked to send error report, and then computer restarts.
Guess the test is allergic to Danes  ::)

Apparently eating salo has boosted me to the top 1% also. This test is inaccurate as I am in the top 1.4679% she lied to me.
Peace is the failure of the military to convince the government that it can and should kick its enemies ass.

I'm not so good on the technical end anymore, but Java or Flash versions would be my first guess.   

Quick summary though, it starts with various (supposed) personality and cognitive tests to assess whether you fit the "1% who really matter" - and by completing the tests, well - as far as marketers are concerned you are automatically in the 1% who really matter in terms of global population.  So, they aren't lying exactly. 

At the end of the test they ask you to draw a picture of something from your childhood -- and there's a pretty good chance that what you draw is subliminally influenced by the pictures (and voice) you've seen throughout the test. 

An odd bit of entertainment, left with the feeling that a) they showed so many pictures, what I drew was bound to have characteristics of at least one, b) subliminal manipulation is far too easy, and/or c) both.
