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.
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?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.
I was also thinking about it and if all IQ tests would give similar score if all the answers are randomly chosen.Harder than seeing how high you can score is seeing how low you can score by randomly pressing things.

Exactly! This test is bogus! As if that wasn't already obvious.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!
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.Sounds like someone didn't get as high as they thought they would
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.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)
