Quoting Aloges (Reply 1): but I don't exactly believe IQ tests actually say it all about someone's intelligence, let alone free ones on the internet.
I agree. Intelligence is a difficult thing to pin down. While an autistic person may not be able to tie their own shoes, they're still able to play a musical instrument beyong the ability of just about anyone else. How would that intelligence be measured?
I do think, however, that when it comes to cognitive performance -- especially academicaly speaking, IQ tests are generally quite accurate. That is, if they're administered by a proper psychologist.

I can't be bothered to take it, especially as it's nothing official and just a web one. I would like to take a proper one in the future but as others have pointed out, I don't think intelligence can be entirely pinpointed through a series of academic questioning,
Despite the name I am a Boeing man through and through!
