As with many armies, those of us who were lucky enough to serve in special units generally don't talk about them much. The guy who talks about being first up the Hermon or in Entebbe, usually walks off silently after a few pointed questions. Some of the things we did were in fact secret, and some we just never speak about. To this day my most dreaded question continues to be, "Did you shoot anyone?"
But, on a lighter note:
If there was a tough IQ test, there wouldn't be many officers.
Actually, what I spoke about was a psychological interview, then an interview to determine what you might be interested in doing in the army.
I have served with soldiers who had a fourth grade education, and I have served with PHDs. Intelligence isn't alway an indicator.
But there is nothing to worry about with these screenings and interviews. Remember, you are there because you want to be there, believe in being there and are there to serve and succeed. I'm certain you will.
