Found an interesting ''iq'' test online

I think the trick to the box one is you always think its more. And yea the word problems actually take effort I think thats why I got the wrong. :(

They could have put the correct answer and 2034 and youd go with 2034 just because you know its not 16 or what ever.

and the number of boxes, I never get those number of boxes ones right, what is the trick in those?
Even after seeing the answer, I looked back and was still unable to find the amount of boxes it says. I really think it's wrong.

I hate IQ tests simply because the outcome is just a number. I like the logic based ones a bit more and I only do it from time to time to see if I am slacking, but for the life of me after 2 mins I just don't care. I don't care when wendy cross the finishing line if see travels x distance at x speed....I find it really hard to care at all. or any of those questions really, the outcome is trivial.

I wish there was like a surivival based IQ test. They lock you in the maze and you have to find your way out or something. I am curious to learn things that actually matter in reality.

The last test tried my hardest to stay focused I got 130, no cheating or calculators, or anything of that sort, and I am happy with that.

and you should be. with a score of 30 you could be anything you set your mind to.

a survival based iq test would be pretty sweet.

Not a qualifiable IQ test. Mensa is a scam, no surprise there. Anything which relies on language or mathematical acquisition is unreliable.

If you want a legitimate IQ test you should look into a Raven test, probably advanced matrices. It has a testable ceiling at around ~130 IQ, but all reliable fluid intelligence tests do.

Raven's progressive matrices is a non-verbal IQ test that's given to inner-city kids on the basis that established tests take high-culture into account, and are thus biased against the inner-city people.
You can find on-line raven's matrices for free; some of them are a real challenge!

I don't see how abstract patterns are city-biased.

Hahaha don't you love when you do the work wrong yet still get the right answer? Too bad this didn't work in highschool :sadface: (The work was worth the most amount of marks lol)
Yup, love it. I didn't do the work entirely wrong, though: I found a pattern that was restrictive enough to exclude all but one choice, but not as restrictive as "perfect squares".

Your score was 28 out of 30

I forgot to count the double 7 in 77
And I didn't get BANALITIES (what a positively banal word)

I guess it was a fun little test, but I thought the questions were too simple to really test intelligence. It's the harder, problem solving questions that I find challenging (and troublesome).

was it the pattern of 9s? im no sure if ir remember this correctly but that is what i did(think). i think most of them added to 9 or something,
idont understand how the 7s one is not 11.

07,17,27,37,47,57,67,70,77,87,97,100

i get 11.

OH WAIT I FORGOT 71,72,73,74,75,76,78,79.......ugh

also that distance problem i dont get how right triangles matters. they walk 4 m in opposite directions then walk 3 meters to the left. i thought itd be 4 meters difference since the left is equal distance in the same direction, but that wasnt even a choice to choose.

I went through and got all the 7's in the second digit, except for 77. I thought "hahah, you're not tricking me with that one." So I got both. Except I forgot the 7's in 70, 71, 71, etc. I felt like an idiot.
