What is your average I.Q.? Do you think it is an accurate measurement?

An accurate measurement of what? Inate intelligence, sure. A predicator of success? Not by the hairs on your chin.

And it will vary as tested, by many points depending on circumstance.

3.0 GPA plus 25 ACT (first and only attempt). But since I.Q. and GPA don't always correlate, you can't be sure.

I usually end up with something around 140-160 depending on how I'm feeling that day.

Did you know that I.Q. declines with age? If you want to know why, e-mail me.

I am an analytic detective. I do unusually well solving problems and finding things that are not logical.
Only 6 out of 1000 have this talent. Ooooooooh!
I only scored a 110 though. I have several glasses of wine in me at this time so maybe it would be higher without them  Smile
In the AirForce when I took the ASVAB test they tried to get me to be a jet engine mechanic because I scored real high in that area and was very mechanically inclined. Interesting  Smile

I can't say that I care about IQ tests, I've never even taken one. Maybe it's just my fear of the possible result, but then again, I couldn't be bothered.

Your IQ score is 124

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Your Intellectual Type is Inventive Inquisitor. You have the unusual distinction of being equally good at math and verbal skills. This means you are a creative thinker and are uniquely good at teaching others through experiences. You are also a great improviser and very good at handling change.


I really think that it is really hard to truly determine one's IQ, as the test is as only good as the questions and those questions can be skewed.

It appears that most understand the fallicay of the "IQ" test. Don't sweat a number, it means nothing to quality of life, A person with an "IQ" of 120 is, in fact, more likely to be happy in life than one with an "IQ" of 160.

I think, FSP, you are correct. Forget the falsity of IQ, it means nothing in the long run. What means something is friendship and love. Somewhat interchangeable, aren't they?

I wish I'd learned that lesson long ago. Maybe I still have a chance, most of you certainly do.

Congratulations, Ryan!

Your IQ score is 147

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Your Intellectual Type is Visionary Philosopher. This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others — and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.


Whatever the hell that means.....

Interesting observation at Tickle.com. I tried answering to the best of my knowledge and scored 129. I tried a second time ticking off all the wrong answers and scored 73 with the following comment:

Misconception #1

IQ does not change by day.



Misconception #2

IQ has nothing in common with your GPA.

As its abbreviation indicates, IQ is a quotient. It originated as the ratio of your 'reading age' to your 'chronological age'.

For example, a ten-year-old with an IQ of 140 would be able to read and comprehend information at a level normally only achieved at 14.

Beyond around 140 an IQ measurement ceases to mean much because it cannot be accurately measured. It's also the case that few people genuinely have an IQ in this range. Which makes me wonder about the validity of some of these online IQ tests. Try the Mensa IQ test - it's a better indicator. It's also a damn sight more tricky. Big grin

I've seen no post here claiming super intelligence. But the point is well taken.

And yes, Flight152, the results of an "IQ" test will change daily.

Misconception #3 -- Misconception #1 is actually true if you're feeling ill, discombobulated, etc. and can't think straight while you're taking the test. Or if you just got new glasses and you have to work hard to see the stuff. Or if it's a timed test and you're having difficulty concentrating.

Online Tests are worthless.

I wrote a real IQ test when I was 16.
It took about 2hrs to write and I waited almost 2 weeks for the results.

What a coincidence, I stumbled accross that site at work today funnily enough.

I took the test and got 118, my supervisor got 117 and what we thought was the thickest guy in the office got 123 !!!.

When we were goading him into taking it, he was protesting saying he was too thick to do it and he got the highest score out of the 3 of us !!!.

What does I.Q. actually stand for, does anybody know ???
