Funny how many geniuses there are out there...

I got 127 but the colors are all messed up on this monitor. I normally get between 135 and 155.

I admit to using a calculator, and I'm sure I could've gotten a couple others if I hadn't guessed my ass off on them...

...and Charles helped, so maybe that's our combined score... ¬.¬

Hrmph. I've had my IQ tested before, and never scored less than 145, so this 127 I just got either means that I'm exceptionally stupid today, or that's a bad test.

Given the number of "what's the next number in the series?" questions, I'm gonna hafta go with the latter.

I can't compete with that; the Pleasant Valley School district only gave me a 136 back in the day :(

It was enough to get me put in the "geek" program though...

Cute test, I had to guess on #6 since all 8 of the divided hexagons look the same to me.

I'm not dissing you or anyone who replied to your post... And I haven't taken the IQ test in question. However, I've never found these popular quiz-tests to be all that reliable, and rarely writte by anyone with professional credentials... And, that said.. Don't you think its strange that EVERYONE who replied with a score is in Genius level?

Reminds me of that hoax test that was posted a while back, where everybody scored really high, and then it automagically changed the image posted on their journal to a really low score, with an explanation of how stupid it was that everybody fell for it.

The point of IQ is that it is scored based on the average results, resulting in a bell curve. 150+ IQ is less than 1% of the population. 140+, I don't remember, but it's not that many more. Seems like the test is a bit less than scientific to me, judging from the results posted by everyone here who took it.

I'm pretty sure Gini isn't taking the test seriously. I know that I did not.

It's like any on-line quiz - there for entertainment purposes only.

This is hardly IQ; more like general knowledge, how well read you are and so on.

Most (all?) real IQ tests only use pattern matching, since it's the only thing that can be considered somewhat universal. A test that asks you to determine if a jumble of letters could be a "state" (of what? Being? one of the US states? a nation-state?) can be discounted quickly. I think there were two or three questions that could have been indcluded on a proper IQ test in this.

But yeah, I know it's all in good fun. It just kind of irks me, I must be mentally pedantic.

What?! I'm sure it's, like, totally scientific!!!

[cough]

Honestly, I don't take it any more seriously than those tests that tell you which Care Bear you are. But I will argue that the average computer-literate person probably is above average.

I think it's more a show of the intelligence level of Zoethe's friends. Like minds gather.

Amazing how many people will post a score, then apologize for it, with excuses for why they didn't do better. Like we really care how anyone does on a test? I'd rather score people for niceness, compassion, altruism, generosity, and wisdom. And these days, I'm more in need of a good carpenter than a genius mathematician/logics-titian (or whatever you'd call that).

(and not because I didn't get a "good" score, which I did.)
