About This Quiz

Sure, every guy wants to know if he is average, or better yet, above average when it comes to height, weight, intelligence and earning income. But in this quiz, you'll learn even more than that. Things like how does an average father feel about parenting. And how many times does the average Joe lie to people in a day? (No shame here, we all do it.)

And even when it comes to biological differences between the sexes, some physical things will now make more sense.  Like why men have bigger noses (more oxygen is needed to fuel the higher muscle mass in men, so bigger nostrils are required.) You'll also find out how many books an average avid male reader will consume in a year. And whether the average guy is circumcised at birth.

Of course, all the regular stats are there for your consumption -- from average shoe size to average lifespan. After you read all the demographics, you'll end up with a snapshot of the man on the street. Whether you call him Joe Blow, Joe Schmo or the common man, you can't compare yourself unless you take the quiz. So go on, see how above average you really are!
