Real IQ tests are administered by psychologists/psychiatrists and are not a simple speed test. While it may be fun to test yourself to see how many you get right, it is not an IQ test.

I scored 187. I think it was a bit low, but I finished it while making dinner for the kids (souffle de Saint-Ange); I guess I was distracted.

Harder than seeing how high you can score is seeing how low you can score by randomly pressing things. I managed to get an 84 after 2 attempts but was in the 90's for the first 2. Apparently people with IQs lower than 90 (which they call "average") score worse than a chimp randomly pressing buttons.

Similarly, I got a 91 by selecting random choices. Maybe we need to try intelligently selecting wrong answers to get a low score? Or maybe random selections after waiting the full period?

Real IQ tests are mostly a joke. Fake IQ tests are entirely a joke. :approve:

I was also thinking about it and if all IQ tests would give similar score if all the answers are randomly chosen.

I got 124; not surprising if you read the membership details :)

From their website,

"To join, you can take one of our two IQ tests online, or you can submit proof of IQ at 124 or above by mailing in professional test scores. "
.

.
"There is a one-time, lifetime membership fee of $79 USD."

I'm pretty sure the questions on a real IQ test are specifically designed not to give preferential treatment to any particular knowledge about the world...whereas this one has a whole section dedicated to random world knowledge!

Exactly! This test is bogus! As if that wasn't already obvious. :rolleyes:

I was professionally tested at age 11 with an IQ of 185, at the request of my new 6th grade teacher to find out why my books had been taken away from me since the age of 8 because as she was told by other teachers "Evo will get ahead of the rest of the class unless you take her books away". My parents were told that public school had nothing to offer me and suggested private boarding schools for the "academically able" that required a minimum professionally tested IQ of 140 to even be considered, but not guaranteed, you had to pass further assessments.

I decided to stay in public school and be jumped, I finished high school at 14.

I always wondered about that... what do you do after highschool when you're only 14? Go to college? illegal to get a job. I would have probably taken a 4 year holiday while waiting to be old enough to go to college :tongue: I mean I know you can go to college at 14, but is that really beneficial to you, to be hanging out with people mostly over 18. I enjoyed university for the parties and the work. At 14, you only get some of the experience (legally, anyway)

Evo's misrepresenting things a bit. Back when Evo and I were 14 parents pulled their kids out of school at 14 as a matter of course to help with the chores around the homestead and fight off Injuns.
