Eh, I was only 143, if memory serves.
Funny how many geniuses there are out there...
It's a very short test, but I'll brazenly bask in the glow!
I got 122- I guess that's not terrible, but next to you I feel not that smrt ;)
Hey, 122 isn't all that bad (says the guy who matched it! LOL)
I think it was dumb luck on my part.
Same, heh. Stupid math questions..
I only got 127...of course this was while my three year old was saying "what are you doing" but meh...I guess it isn't too bad ;)
I got 127 but the colors are all messed up on this monitor. I normally get between 135 and 155.
I am amazed at the consistency with which I get 147.
Since I'm only sixteen, I like to think that I'll only get smarter for the next few years. :D
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... ¬.¬
I got 127 the first time, and 137 the second. So. :-p
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.
Not too bd for a quicky test.
God, I can't believe I got them all right....
Actually, it isn't, apparently, since a couple people outscored me.
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...

I normally would not post this, but...
since you asked:
Cute test, I had to guess on #6
since all 8 of the divided hexagons look the same to me.
Awww. I only got 132
But I've had two pitchers of mojitos. So uhm, it's cause I was drunk. Seriously, I can do better next time.

I can't kick your ass-- guess we'll dance cheek to cheek ;D
Which is about how I usually score on online IQ tests.
Ha, if it were only true. At least these online IQ tests are good for the ol' self-esteem.
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!!!
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.
"Don't you think its strange that EVERYONE who replied with a score is in Genius level?"
I think it's more a show of the intelligence level of Zoethe's friends. Like minds gather.

I is less smrt thanz U
Silly test. Pattern matching is the only real testing method used.
Shapes will always be my weakness.
Alas, I am only a Brilliant Mastermind (127). Math is my downfall, but I love shapes.

Ok my screen isn't so hot atm but how do you all work out patterns? I don't get them. Apart from that, I got 127

I think it's just a matter of practice. I really do think you can learn to be better at it.
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.)
Very true re: carpenter/plumber/mechanic! I'd love to have REAL skills!
