    I don't get it. I scored a 140.

    164. I'd say this isn't the most accurate test available, but it is cool

    I did not find it that cool!

    that's because you don't know what cool is. jk
    Instead of cool, how about if I say it was different than other iq tests I've taken online. I liked the timer on each question and I liked that it was more challenging than others. However, I think there should have been a place to put in my age.

    bluescreened around question 10 the first time and scored 149 the second, so I'm guessing my score would have been somewhere below that the first time.

    Interesting test though. The timer makes you sort of panic and lose your concentration

    164...I have got that score on another iq test before, but it's more logic than the other tests I took. I think iq should be a more rounded score than just logic.

    I scored a 145 which is about average for how I do on these online type things.

    took it again and got 172, haven't tried a third time.

    Thought I did terribly (was clueless on a couple questions, so clicked almost arbitrarily), but I got 172. I'm sure this test is just wrong.

    turns out it's not a test on how correct you are, but how fast you can click your mouse.

    I selected random answers all the way through: 65

    The timer is distracting and shouldn't be shown.

    The test is probably only remotely accurate in the average-gifted range, or probably 80-140. I never held the opinion that IQ tests with that sort of (comparatively low) ceiling on them could accurately gauge people who score a great majority of the questions right.

    oh, you mean silly huemaans. yes I agree.

    IQ tests are not really my interest though i occasionally give every free test that exists (if they are free, there should be no harm right) :p

    Anyways i got enough points to solve Fermats Last Theorem.
    Beware wiles your proof will be rendered useless with my incredibly simple proof (goes and digs out the fermats lost book from his backyard). (Smart! aint i? or aint i?)

    This is strange. I scored 172 too. That makes 3 of us having that score.

    The test is definitely wrong.

    Maybe it asserts points,not function of the answers given,but randomly to IP-s...Mine was small ranked and only got 131 points...Yeah,maybe i should change my net connection...

    that would be the intelligent thing to do, so maybe you should come up with somthing else. 131? that's almost average. Average people are way dumber than most. <--lol, that's funny

    By the way, what is the criterion of points for moron, average, intelligent etc. based on this test.
