Well, I sort of got geared up by the posts here that I should make some wildly improbable guesses to score highly.

That strategy apparently lacked merit, as I only scored a 30%.

100% here; no lie. I was being wise-guy cynical. Nothing to lose, right?

I got 60%.

I guessed; only two I was confident of my answer.

I was thinking they were sort of trick questions, maybe that's why I missed most of them, or maybe I have a very poor sense of world attitudes re:USA or maybe these questions are highly arbitrary and it's unlikely to select the correct one of 4 random bits of statistical data.

Its admittedly arbitrary, but its worth keeping in mind that nobody supports the use of drones, what the world admires about us is science and technology - although that seems to conflict with the drones - and that there isn't a whole lot of support in many places we might think we have it, given the money we pour into Egypt and Pakistan.

david52, 30%.
I must remember to take the USA down from its pedestal a level or two.

I got 70% right, which surprised me. Like Elvis, I was cynical. Not cynical enough, though.

30 here, a surprise and let-down. I'll have to stop watching FOX News all the time.

I made the mistake of assuming that, because I am foreign, my own views would be representative.

I got 1 right :)

...and I'm not admitting which one.

Best wishes
Jon

I admit that I had no problem selecting the correct answer as to which country most admires the U.S. -- too many parenti here to think otherwise -- and which country least admires the U.S. -- Incoming!

I didn't know the Italians were so pro-America. Apparently I over-estimated Mexico's dislike of us.

Maybe all the Italian restaurants here are paying a percentage to the mother country.

Mexico is afraid there's going to be another ice age and we're all going to move down there.

40% - Would it be cheating to try again, now that I know the correct answers? :)
