Good Morning Britain viewers slam woman who makes men do IQ tests before dates
The popular ITV show Good Morning Britain grilled a woman today after it was discovered she makes the men dating her take an IQ test - and they need to score very highly.
She said: "I try to make it fun, like one of my guy friends makes his dates take a personality test, which is kind of fun, like are you introvert or extrovert? So I try and pass it off like that."
Susanna asked: "It is a requirement before he turns up?"
Candice replied: "I try to pass it off as tests are fun, don't you want to take this?"
Susanna then asked: "And if he fails it? What if the IQ test result is too low? Would you say to them 'oh, no, sorry, that score isn't high enough - the date is off'. I mean, you say two guys have taken it so far? How did they get on? Did they pass?"
Candice nodded and said: "Yeah, it hasn't happened yet. They both passed. I mean, I think you can sort of tell when you meet somebody."
On Twitter, fans were left critical. "Also a higher IQ doesn't make people kind or nice people. I would take that any day over a test x," one GMB viewer wrote.
Another said: "You can't judge someone on their IQ. Try loyalty, commitment, faithfulness, trustworthy and someone who stands by your side in good or bad times. That's when you have found a needle in a haystack."
And yet another said: "You would think she would have the intelligence to assess someone on a date without the need for metrics."
