hmmm.

first number is the one the test gave me: second is the one I would give me. comments in italics.

Str: 8 (13)
How about leg strength, huh?
Int: 12 (16)
Come on. How much school you've completed is not a valid measure of intelligence.
Wis: 14
Dex: 13
Con: 11
Ok, these three are all about right. Dex is confounded by the 'if I'm payinjg attention' factor - probably goes down to 9 if no, up to 15 or 16 if yes.
Chr: 15 (11)
Maybe this is a subjective thing, but I do not see myself as at all charismatic.Weird.

er,
bench or military press is about as objective a measurement of arm strength as one could get, actually, so i don't see a problem with that mapping.

You're right about the subjectivity of the other measurements, but, well, we're looking at a model of life. Not life. In most of these situations we'd need modifiers for types of activities.

I guess thats where skills come in (I'm a lot wiser when it comes to engineering than literature, and a lot more dextrous with model building than with juggling. Intelligence is likely to be a sticking point for many of us, because I suspect we all like to think we're very intelligent. And we'd all argue its nearly impossible to get a consistent objective measure of one's intelligence.)
