Cool Online IQ Test

Geoffrey F. Miller

I just finished taking this test. I scored 129 on the Ultimate IQ Test and 123 on the Verbal IQ Test.

Go ahead and take it. It's kinda fun.

Oh yes, and after you're done, please share your results with us. Be sure to specify the test you took also.

Good luck!

Woah... That was hard (and time-consuming!).

Ultimate IQ Test: 132
Verbal IQ Test: 130 (most were guesses )

 I took one more:
Culture-Fair IQ Test: 129 (4 of the final 5 sucked)

It's amazing, these people have such pride in their high IQ's. Being able to answer a bunch of random brainteasers does not make you Newton.

I also like the $60 membership fee. check Ok, well after 3 beers and a couple of shots of vodka, 134 on the Ultimate. I'm tired..I'll do the verbal tomorrow. recon Culture-Fair Test: 135 How accurate are these tests? Can anyone who has an official IQ score please verify the validity of the tests? EDIT: Just scored 130 on the Verbal Test!!! I CAN'T BELIEVE IT! English is not even my second language! Last edited: devious_ recon, did you do #16? It looked like a random mess to me. The Bob Ulimate IQ: 120 Must be stupid. The Bob (2004 ©) P.S. This test is like the others. Strange. I have had 135 and 130 and 129 on some. This is my lowest yet. Only a mensa score is accurate. recon devious_ said: recon, did you do #16? It looked like a random mess to me. Nah, #16 on the Culture-Fair test looked random to me too. But I'm sure it's not. Can some people on the forum claiming to have an IQ of 180+ please come and help? recon Maxwell said: It's amazing, these people have such pride in their high IQ's.

The way I see it is if you're from Quebec, you're born smart, atheletic and amazingly sexy. No test in the world could measure our talents.

1. Montreal has the more post-secondary students per capita than any other city in North America
2. Montreal was voted the most sexiest city in Canada
3. Quebec is jammed full of atheletic people including Eric Gagne, Mario Lemieux, Patrick Roy and Jose Theodore to name a few
4. Most of us are completely bilingual like the Province
5. We have our own Federal Government that favours us...Bloc Quebecois!

We're so great, we're off the charts on any test. Just thought I'd let you all know.

Alright, I was really bored last night, so tried a bunch of them (I like puzzles, and figured these tests have lots of puzzles to solve, so why not?). The one thing I noticed is that some of their questions do test what you've learned, not just some sort of "innate" intelligence, or whatever it is IQ tests are supposed to test. For instance, the vocabulary stuff were words you'd never encounter unless you owned one of those "word a day" calendars or found great entertainment in reading the dictionary. Plus, some of the verbal questions required knowledge of history! There were always two choices that fit the grammatical requirements and context, but only one that was historically correct. The other thing I noticed is I suck at taking tests on a computer...I'm glad I got through all my standardized testing in the days of paper and pencil! I noticed that bit about the $60 too. LOL! That's the real IQ test...if you're willing to pay the$60, the really smart people just laugh as they take your money :-)

Timed test: 135 (I suspect I lost a few points though by clicking start accidentally and then momentarily panicking as the first question flew at me with a timer at the top of the screen...or maybe that's all part of the test).

Verbal: 138

Culturally fair: 135 (I just guessed on the last two without trying...was getting tired by then and those required really thinking in a way my brain didn't want to twist at that hour of the night, who knows, maybe I guessed right).

Ultimate: 125 (I got really bored about halfway through, so didn't try very hard on the tougher questions...okay, didn't try at all...quite a few questions that I just took random guesses rather than think, mostly those hideous spatial relations one...let me cut it out and fold it and I'll give you the answer...probably would have done better if I had a printer connected to the computer and tried that).

I wanted to try the last one, but really was far too tired by then and decided I couldn't possibly do that one without printing it out (they have a printable version, but as mentioned above, my computer isn't connected to a printer...at least not the computer I use for goofing around on this sort of thing).

I've been doing tons of puzzles and online quizes lately. Mainly, I'm practicing for one of the IQ tests required to get into mensa.

Somewhere online, I read that IQ is 80% hereditary and 20% environmental. When I was 3.5 years old, I scored a 125 on the Wechler Child Scales. If I were to take the test again, I'd need to score 130+ to make into mensa, which I really want to do.

If 125 is 80% of my potential IQ, then do you think that if I were to work on tons of puzzles and logic games there might be a chance to realize my full IQ? Do any of you have suggestions for me?

There are a lot of IQ threads/posts and anything related to intelligence in the Social Sciences section. You should check it out: https://www.physicsforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=85 [Broken]

One question...why on earth do you want to get into mensa?? It is so lame. I was warned years ago by a scientist I was dating at NASA (Houston) to stay away from it because it was a political snake pit. These people have their particular agendas and unless you are willing to buy into them, you're better off staying away.

Also, if you're struggling to get to the minimal acceptance level...give up now.

Alright, I'm curious...

Does anyone know how to solve the

WORD1 (M I D D L E) WORD2

WORD3 ( _ _ _ _ ) WORD4

Problems? I can't for the life of me get any of them.

I got 118 on the Ultimate. I just guessed on a few of them because I'm not patient enough sit here all night.

Yeah I got that one. The answer was SEAT for mine I believe. Anyone else get that one?

Enigma, yeah, the middle word is composed of the third and second letters from the end of each of the other two words. I don't even know how I figured that one out...I think I only got that one because I was so tired I couldn't think too hard and try to force a pattern, so it just sort of popped out at me.
