(are you a talent,
a lifer, or a mandarin?)
mid-90s, in articles in The Atlantic and Time
Nicholas Lemann introduced the idea of three paths to success in
American society -- that of Talents, Lifers, and Mandarins. He later
went on to write a book, The Big Test, about the SAT as
the Mandarin path to success.
Which path are you
on? That's what this test aims to find out.
