Has anyone here had an IQ test? If so, what was your IQ? Just curious. Here's a cool site to find your IQ. It may be biased though, as it isn't administered by a professional or anything, but its worth a look.

I have a high IQ. I know this, because I wasn't stupid enough to waste time on an inaccurate internet IQ Test.
I'd advise against anyone taking an online test and relying on the results to be in some way accurate or comparable to someone's recent physican test.

Hybrid, although I dont feel I need to say this, that was an incredibly rude and unnecessary post. Think. Then post.

Besides, Ben and I were both given an official IQ test administered by a brain physician. I'm sure he's just interested in what other people think of it, or if they've had one taken before.

Posts like this don't require any thought at all to reply to. Replying negatively to needless "look at my BRAIN!" type posts has slowly become an instinctive reaction.
Suggesting that I think, and then post whilst being hypocritical in your own posts suggests to me that you yourself have posted without thinking. If you don't feel the need to say something why say it?

There is plenty I don't feel I need to say about how rude my post really was, compared to how rude it really could be.

Were you pronounced Dead on Arrival? An IQ test still given out by a brain physican is still extremely prone to being biased or subject to a patients mental state. Let alone an Online IQ test as I've taken several with extremely varied results scaling from 129 to 160. If something is that varied than I'm certain about its lack of usefulness.

Which is why I provided the answer "I have a high IQ". Online the highest I got was in the 160's, whereas at physicans (two occasions) I got 138 and 134.

Mine is 157. No joke. And it was administered in a brain development hospital by a PhD for a study comparing the IQs of students in magnet schools against those with Spinobifida. (To see if spinobifida directly affects the brain stem.) I'm only giving out these details to try to convey the truth of what I'm saying.

Oh, and I didn't mean to start an arguement or anything, just trying to find people's IQs because I was curious. Sorry if I offended anyone or anything.

That's pretty impressive man, And you've no real need to apologise for your post. The only person that took offence to anything was atom who's tried really hard to reply maturely to my burst of truth smile

To go against my initial post, I got 141 in the IQ test linked. razz

A 130something, I think, although not formally tested.

The bottom line, unfortuneatly, is that all a a high IQ score conclusively proves is that you're good at IQ tests ...

IQ tests vary wildly in the scoring systems and although many of you will have had IQ tests at some points in your lives, they are irrelevant - your IQ fluctuates all the time. You could have been a very bright infant, but then puffed a bit too much 'herb' and become a dunce by comparison razz

To properly compare your IQs, you need to have all done exactly the same test in a reasonably close time frame.

Last time i was officially tested, was by my junior school when i was 8. I suspect i won't be the same now razz

Yeah, IQ tests seem utterly random both online and in real life. I've had scores anywhere from 65 - 185 online and from 125 - 175 in written tests. All rubbish, doesn't prove a thing. Some people I know who are WAY more intelligent than me have done much worse on IQ tests.

No, no, a properly administered IQ test given after a persons developmental stages (permitting, no 'herb' was inhaled in the past) is completely accurate. But, as everyone knows, they measure your 'potential', not your actual knowledge. You could know everything about everybody everywhere, and still have an IG of 100. But, thats not to discredit IQ tests. Sure they vary widely, depending on the credibility of the administer, but a proper one WILL yield an accurate marker of your knowledge potential.

It may well yield a plausible score, but as far as i'm aware there is no singlar accredited test that everyone is likely to have taken. Mensa is the most international body, i suppose, but like i say few will have taken that test. The tests you're more likely to have taken are devised by government think-tanks with their own agendas and criteria, on a per-country basis. What is 'intelligent' in america may be differently to what is intelligent in england or japan or wherever.

Well proper IQ tests are timed so if you rush through (and still get right answers) you will get a higher score.

Also IQ is more about quick wittedness than sense and is adjusted for young people. So it doesn't neccesarily mean they are more or less clever but rather indicates that they are better or worse at learning/adapting if they decide to put the effort in (which of course not everyone does either).

Also general IQ tests don't take into account areas of strength or weakness which would raise or lower your score from the actual level you are really at.

Plus people often lie about their score razz

Incidently the only real IQ test I did I scored 120 and it only went upto 140 and 132 was genius and 90 was average.

I got 141 in this online test but it didnt have any spatial awareness or visual pattern matching that is usually on IQ tests, and I'm better at that sort of thing.

For atom:

The short answer to that is - no.

The long answer is - An IQ test excludes Emotional Intelligence, specific aptitudes and God alone knows what else. Yes, you might score well on maths, or general knowledge, or spatial awareness, or a whole variety of other things which have no bearing in the real world.

It's a test which sorts the people who can do IQ test from the people who can't. It might be indicative, but it proves nothing about the individual.

It says nothing about drive, self-confidence, determination, stength of will, focus or any of the things which actually matter (in my opinion).

That's gibberish.

Exactly what is it accurate about? Your IQ, great - but other than an arbitary system of measuring how well you do at IQ tests, what does it tell you? How much 'intelligence' you have? You find me a physician who can identify exactly WHAT intelligence is, with some sort of empirical evidence to back up their thesis, then we'd be getting somewhere with the 'accuracy' of IQ tests. As things stand, IQ tests are often handy in guaging aptitude and such, but there's no single universal test that is an accurate measure of intelligence or similar.

But stqagehanduk said it beautifully before - all IQ tests tell you is how well you can do IQ tests. Nothing more.

Cheers,
Arktic.

Nnnnnnnnnngh.

Having said that IQ test don't prove much, I'd say "common sense" is what a lot of people claim to have instead of formal educations. It's the comforting myth that instead of wasting your time filling your head with book nonsense you've mastered more practical skills like changing plugs or working in Tescos.

For me, common sense is the appropriate application of knowledge / skills. If you have a combination of both academic and , as you put it practical skills, then you are in good order.

Mine came with a 120gig and I fitted a second, taking me to 240gig. I've also fitted my own DVD burner, new sound card, firewire card and dinky extra fan on the front to a) ensure my PC doesn't melt and b) My warranty is so far into the void that any minute it's going to crash land on the Planet of the Apes.

Do I get extra IQ points (the original point of this thread, if I recall) for having done all that and not having set fire to anything?

Having studied neurology for a quite a time and actually worked on IQ tests myself I can assure you, the number you get is about as reliable as your grades in school. They are relevant for those who care, but have absolutely no objective value whatsoever.

Besides, there are about 10000 different types of IQ tests and more then 20 acknowledged bases. So if you have "150" it doesn't really say ANYTHING if you don't know what exact test you made and what exact measurement has been used.

That is the reason why the same person can have all from 60 to 200, depending on the test and the measurement. (I myself have had results going from 104 up to 183 on different tests, so go figure).


The IQ does not measure your actual INTELLIGENCE as such (wich is a pretty undefined thing anyways). What it does is measure certain parts of knowledge and basic mental abilities.


Basically it's like doing a math test in school. Give the same test to 100 different teachers in all the world I can garantee you'll get grades from perfect to unsufficient. (being a teacher myself, I know very well how random most of the grades are you get at school, university or anywhere else)

So basically, these things are actually pretty worthless.

we did a IQ test in Psychologie today.
There were different types of catogories:

- verbal -> got only 3/10
-mathematical -> got 29/30
- visual -> got 10/10

My teacher then calculated, and i am suppose to have an IQ of 130...

YIPIE, I AM A GENIUS wink

Cheers,

This is a good point. Them, but, ultimately it doesn't make a difference as long as one of you is.


For the record my score is 3260 ... Three doctor who stage plays really bumped that figure up ...
