IQ Test

Post by cmonkey » Thu Sep 24, 2015 10:06 am

My result - 128 {You are smarter than 95% of the population}. DW got 130 .

Curious what are your results? Just for fun. :)

Edit - If you'd like a more in depth test, this one looks good. It looks like you have to pay for the result at the end, but you don't. They email it. I got 123 on this one.

128

There was one pattern test I just couldn't see any difference.

132. Funny, I found the word ones harder than the patterns.

134.

It seemed very limited.

132. Yeah, I can talk myself out of the right answer with the word ones. Though, I still don't know what pattern the differently arranged "7's" were showing.

There wasn't a pattern. One of them was backwards and the others were not (the second one, the one that was upside down).

I believe one was reversed. (Now I screwed up the whole test). ;-)

134.

I question how accurate it is, since that's 10-15 pts less than I've gotten on more comprehensive tests.

132. I'll put in another vote for that being an inaccurate test. I have never been officially tested, but I am fairly sure that I am not in the top 2%, haha.

Yea its just a 'for fun' test. I'm not an IQ test expert, but the more interactive/short ones are probably less accurate. I linked a more detailed one in the OP.

I think that's as high as it goes. I don't think I missed any.

One of these:
1: all people here are extremely smart
2: people with a lower score don't dare to post it
3: the test is inaccurate

I don't dare to try it, afraid for the result :lol:

I think its a combination of 1 & 3 actually. I just re-took the test and purposely answered each question wrong yet my score was 104!

So I get an A for effort. :|

132- One of the number patterns threw me off. Probably because I ate a donut this morning.

132, I would have thought that was the top end of the test, as they all seemed easy, and I had no doubts. But we have a 134 result in just our small group.

Apparently, I was both wrong, and confident in my wrong answer, and that seems to be a bit of a pattern in itself...

When I was younger, I thought my ability to test well was proof of how smart I was. A bit if time in the real world, where the answers are not multiple choice, showed me the error of this assumption.

Still, a fun little test.

142 on the more in depth test.
I think most online tests are skewed a bit high to give everyone an "I'm above average!" feel-good.

Jacob will probably break their web site.

I got 156 once on that second test, but I was pretty sloshed on homemade blackberry wine and I think that helped me.

At least I thought so at the time.

132. We're all pretty damn smart around here but come on. I'm going with option 3 on Rube's test. :D

I ended up with 132 on the quick one and 140 on the more in-depth IQ test. I'm also doubting that any short online test can be an accurate form of measuring IQ :lol:. The second test also seemed to lack visual pattern matching questions, which usually seems to be my downfall :oops:.

130 based on the quick test, 149 on the longer test (?!). The hardest questions for me were the geometric ones, since I'm not used to the English terms. :P I like that the second one gives a more detailed breakdown of how you scored the areas. Of course, it is still a random internet test on a metric that might not be all that interesting (as a coincidence, this post was recycled yesterday)

132 - think I got the glove one wrong, as my pedantic brain was thinking that hands aren't necessarily the same shape or size...

98
I got every one wrong on purpose to see what I'd get...and I'm just a hair under average but well within the bell curve...how?
complete failure = average IQ

That's just so much bullshit. IQ is supposed to be a bell curve. If there's people with 130 IQ, then where's the people with 70 IQ?

Also IQ is supposed to be time based, not sure if the quick and easy one even bothered to do that? Got 132 on that one.
