I just took IQTest.com's test and got a 141. How does this compare to your's? Be honest. I'm guessing we have at least a 160 here.

When I was little, I did pretty crappy in school, but just about every teacher I'd ever had said "I was very bright" and things to that effect.
They took me to a psycholigist or specialist, he did a battery of tests, simple things. Mainly to see if I had learning disabilities. He told my Dad my IQ at the end of the tests. I was 138, 135+ is usually considered genius by most standards, I've heard 160 for some others.
138, It's not how big your box is, it's how full it is...

Qui'Lann, IQ has two capitals. And possessive "yours" has no apostrophe.

Sputnik, you left out a capital.

Y'all got in the 140's?

An "above average" is supposedly anything over 120. Anything over 130 could be very difficult to quantify because the test doesn't span a very wide degree of difficulty.

In the context of being a predictor of your potential capacity for learning an IQ test stops being of any real use after the age of 12. It's usually done in conjunction with other tests to determine what level of cognitive development you have and how it's affecting your ability to learn.
The different types of IQ tests done beyond that age are based on either a standard deviation or a ratio. Both are affected by how much data you have to draw results from by different degrees.

Me and my three siblings scored around 165 at age 10 to 12. We all have completely different interests, talents, and personalities.
IQ doesn't really mean a whole lot though. It's just a tiny piece of the much larger picture of intelligence. The most intelligent people in the world were raised in an environment that is conducive and encouraging of self-education. Or more simply promoted learning and trying new things. So their brain has had a great deal of "practice" in rewiring itself.

Your results can vary ALOT as you age and depending on your health. I've scored as high as 175, and as low as 124 over the past 15 years.
I personally don't recommend putting any real confidence in IQ tests as being a good dEffeminateter of the intelligence of a given person. "Stupid is as stupid does."

Qui'Lann, IQ has two capitals.

The software for this board converts the title into title case, oddly enough (first letter capped), no matter what you enter. SNAPs have always been Snaps, as well.

This topic reminds me of "what range do you get with your singled Titan?" topics. The number is interesting and all, but not applicable to a real life nerf war, and really only amounts to (academic) dick-waving.

I've always held that doing well on standardized tests...means that you can do well on standardized tests. (And this is coming from someone who did well at them.) It's not the size, it's what you do with it.

I did one of those with a friend once. we cheated by having one of us do the evens and the other the odds at the same time so we got a really high score although it does really ruin the whole point of it...

While I must admit that anyone who tends to tinker with kids' toys and modify them to shoot a bit farther for recreational purposes tends to be a bit "nerdy", I still wonder about many of you out there.

I've been on this planet long enough to bear witness that academic intelligence does not always equal good common sense. Take that MIT student from Hawaii who decided to express her intelligence as a brilliant M.I.T. student, and wore a shirt with electronics, some LEDs, and a battery pack, to Boston's Logan Airport, where just 7 years ago, two of the airplanes that were used by terrorists to attack America had departed from.

She is extremely intelligent, I must remind you. But exercises no common sense, or was taunting the TSA personnel at the airport with a shirt and electronic gadgetry that anyone on a heightened alert status could misidentify as "something out of the ordinary".

You can be a rocket scientist here at the Haven, and still have absolutely no common sense. Posting your I.Q. still won't convince me that some of you out there are morons.

I personally don't recommend putting any real confidence in IQ tests as being a good dEffeminateter of the intelligence of a given person. "Stupid is as stupid does."


I guess that quite sums it up. I scored 40, by the way.

Are you sure you don't mean 140? According to http://www.personali...ting-scale.html a 40 shows moderate mental retardation.

I think that's more an indicator of the average IQ of airport security personnel combined with the extreme drop in IQ that takes place whenever there's some excuse for heightened security. That story is on par with the 2007 Boston Bomb Scare when the Boston PD couldn't tell the difference between an explosive and a light brite. When the terrorists do attack, they won't be ATHF fans, and they won't wear convenient light up t-shirts so that we can easily identify them. Frankly it's frightening to think that security and law enforcement personnel wouldn't see that.

I know I am in the 160's (Mother will not divulge exact number because I only got to see the first 2 numbers when I peeked at the results...), but as Cpt. Slug said, anything over 130-140 is hard to judge so it really doesn't matter beyond 130. Also, IQ is not knowledge. IQ stands for intelligence quotient. It is only a quotient (answer to a division problem) which has a variable divisor.

The real problem there is replying to "out of the ordinary" with guns pointed without any intermediate measures.

Heres a fun little logic puzzle that I found when I searched for "IQ quiz" on Google. If it takes you less than 10 min, and you don't look the answer up, consider yourself very intelligent gifted at solving logic puzzles. It took me a little over 20 min, a pen, and the backside of a napkin.

* There are 5 houses in 5 different colors
* In each house lives a person with a different nationality
* These 5 owners drink a certain type of beverage, smoke a certain brand of cigar, and keep a certain pet
* No owners have the same pet, smoke the same brand of cigar or drink the same drink.

Here's the question: Who owns the fish?

1. The Brit lives in a red house
2. The Swede keeps dogs as pets
3. The Dane drinks tea
4. The green house is on the left of the white house
5. The green house owner drinks coffee
6. The person who smokes Pall Mall rears birds
7. The owner of the yellow house smokes Dunhill
8. The man living in the house right in the middle drinks milk
9. The Norwegian lives in the first house
10. The man who smokes Blend lives next door to the one who keeps cats.
11. The man who keeps horses lives next door to the man who smokes Dunhill
12. The owner who smokes Blue Master drinks beer
13. The German smokes Prince
14. The Norwegian lives next to the blue house
15. The man who smokes Blend has a neighbor who drinks water

I don't want to burst anyone's bubble, but that test is far from accurate. Three things prove this:
1) The test has an average of three questions for each of thirteen categories.
2) The test is entirely true/false.
3) The test is free.

Even going as far as to say that your IQ is higher than someone else's based on scores of this test is not necessarily the case. I don't know enough about this test, but I know that Tickle.com's IQ test is not a true representation of relative intelligence.

I scored a 110 on this test, which is similar to what I got on Tickle ( 118, I think ), whereas a genuine professional test that I took put me at 143 ( somewhere in the low-mid 40's - I don't remember exactly ). If I recall correctly, this test had about five or six questions on geometry, and while some were common sense, I was just not familiar enough with the subject matter to answer the question. Does not having taken a specialized branch of mathematics make me less intelligent?

The logic problem posted is also not necessarily a representation of relative intelligence either, simply because it takes a specific type of brain function to do it. That's not to say that being able to do it fast doesn't make you smart - but it also doesn't necessarily make you smarter than someone who can't do it.

Rambo, I know that being able to solve a logic problem doesn't automatically make you smart, it's meant to be fun. Maybe I should of said that if you can solve it in under ten minutes, you are a very, very logical thinker.

And Qui'lan Fett, that answer is incorrect. Try again.

Now wait just a damn minute. I worked on this for ten minutes before I got it.

LOOK AWAY FROM YOUR SCREEN UNLESS YOU WANT THE SOLUTION

Who the fuck said he had a fish? Couldn't he have something else?

But, playing along, I got the German in 15 minutes. Is that right?
