    Post Re: What is your IQ?

    I've taken one online where i got 143 if my mind don't betray me.
    But i've done some more, written ones, and the results were always around 130/132. So, I think the written ones are more reliable.

    You can do some here: http://www.highiqsociety.org/

    Do the Test for Exceptional Intelligence. It's really hard, consider yourself a exceptional intelligent if you can finish it.

    Post Re: What is your IQ?

    I've taken a whole bunch of online IQ-tests, but I doubt many of them were reliable. Results ranged 130-145, and most anything in between.
    I voted 131-140, which can be nothing more than a crude guess considering the doubtful accuracy of the consulted tests.

    Post Re: What is your IQ?

    The average IQ is supposed to be 100, but I've never, not once, heard a single person say that they received a score below 120 on the Online IQ Tests, which means one of two things: Either the Online Tests are B.S. or many of the people who claim to be getting incredible scores are liars ... it's simply a logical impossibility that everyone who takes the test is so exceptionally intelligent that they score in the 130s and 140s ... it reminds me of an episode of "King of the Hill" I saw where Peggy takes a phony IQ test; this test tells everyone who takes it that they are geniuses and that they should join the "society of geniuses" or some such group, and she ends up getting scammed out of money by the con-men who made the test. I tend to think a similiar situation is going on with these Online IQ Tests. Think about it, why would they be advertising on every Website to get you to take their Test? You mean to tell me they're putting out substantial capital to advertise their tests just because they want you to know what your IQ is? It doesn't take a genius to see through this scheme!

    I was tested at MENSA, with a real, proper test, and I got a certain result.
    I remember there being more than one IQ scale, perhaps this is where the problem is.

    What JoeDas said about these online tests makes perfect sense,
    I'd also add that in a real test, the time should be limited.

    Post Re: What is your IQ?

    I had my IQ tested by an educational psychologist when I was 8 years old, and had it tested scientifically again more recently. My recent IQ score was 6 points lower than the old one, which I believe is outside the range of measurement error, and implies an actual if marginal decline in the 'real' IQ score.

    I can only infer from this that alcohol really does kill one's brain cells.

    Post AW: Re: What is your IQ?

    Scores differ from test to test, depending on how much the different parts (logic, systematic thinking, literacy, maths, knowledge) are weighed.

    Even taking the same test twice can yield different results, depending on you daily performance.

    As scores also differ from age group to age group it is not really possible to score a constant IQ score over a period of more than a decade.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    Right, I had forgotten that the scores differ by age group, but that is of course correct.

    Scratch my previous comments about alcohol then. Clearly, it does no harm to one's intellectual development.
