I'm sure everyone is being honest on their posts.

I answered them all wrong and got 98.
This scoring is not accurate.

I got 128 on Jacob's mensa.dk link. Højt!

But that's "beregnet ved brug af spredningen 15." With a click of a button I can "omregn til spredningen" 24 and upgrade my IQ to 145!

Jacob, your score is based on standard deviation setting of 15, right? Is that the standard for setting the scores to compare to other IQ tests? Funny how someone could think they have a super high IQ which could have been their legitimate score from a high quality test, but with a higher standard deviation resulting in "grade inflation".

There's an English version here: http://www.iqtest.dk/main.swf
But no sound or color, and you have to stick with the lowly standard deviation of 15.

Right. 15 is the modern standard for the standard deviation and I adjust my [expressed] test scores to that. It's annoying that adjusting an IQ score always requires some detective work to figure out what its sd is, but it's either 15 (modern), 16 (Binet), or 24 ("classic").

They could do away with all this ambiguity by just expressing the score as a percentile.

I doubt it. 115 would seem more reasonable. I would get more than 120 but that's because I have had access to the answer manual :D

:lol: I guessed on 20% and got 130. Gee, that felt good know why?

I scored 98 as a kid in a public school screening. I recall spending most of my time trying to figure out how I'd slip the pencil past the proctor without returning it. Mom was really mad because my siblings tested at the top of the scale.

They look unbelievably stupid now after a fifty year real time experiment. The funny part is when they compare our relative success they bring up my old IQ result in bewilderment. I just let them try to explain the puzzle. :lol: :lol: :lol:

As an ex-Mensa member (did not pay to renew membership after 1st yr, but can be reinstated anytime by parting with $), IQ tests and academic, puzzle solving intelligence is overrated in terms of impact on most people's life.

Unless one is going to be John Nash or Einstein, high IQ is not needed for a successful life. And even then they were pretty miserable socially. Meeting some Mensa folks further confirmed this.
Just don't be stupid - that's good enough.

In ERE too, once beyond basic SWR, immunity against SHTF comes from how many people are willing to say take you in versus the size of your prepper stash.

With 7.2 billion humans, applied intelligence is more about meaningful connections between humans than between our own neurons.

Currently staying on 100 acres of off-grid solar property with its own water supply, root cellar, food storage, ammo and guns - great in peace time. In a SHTF scenario, this place would be so run over.

Go through the test CMonkey posted again, and punch in random guesses. Try it a few times.
I wager you'll always come out above average and that you'll see that quick advert for growing your already 'above average' potential.
