Yes I had that in my test! and I always have problems with puzzles and shapes - what comes next etc. But its all good - it just goes to show which parts of dyscalculia are affecting you the most - in my case its everything - but thats Ok! too - I always say -if your going to fail tests with dyscalculia- you might as well fail really well and confidently - I call it failing with style! So well done on not getting the patterns - I look forward to what your going to fail next!
Cheers for now

yup, I had those kinds of tests, too and didn't do so well with them- but that's why I was there. I was happy that I was being taken seriously. That said, I also felt self-conscious, but I didn't focus on it.

Hi Crystal WSU,
I also had tasks on my testing where I just 'wasn't getting it', and I wondered how 'dysfunctional' I might be looking in comparison to the general population,... and never really found out for sure about that, although the test in question was a couple of years ago.
I'll mention something here, for everyone posting on this Thread, in regard to the subject of discussing our 'test results',... as this is something that we can easily get engrossed in doing, even doing it 'in detail'. About a year and a half ago, another forum member was very distressed that we were 'telling too much' about the tasks on the IQ testing and ruining the testing for other people. She even asked me to delete one of my posts, which I did for her. And, really, she was 'right'. Let's not go into detail on our testing here on the forum, okay? But, whatever we say about the specifics of testing in our PM's and personal emails is our own business.
So far, so good, and no harm done. I'm just seeing that, since this is such an interesting subject, it would be easy to go too far down a 'steep path'. - jus
