Out of pure couriosity, I was wondering what everyones IQ score is.

Average is all I am. Damn the man.

I'm 17 and the last time I took one (online 13 minute test) I got 165, which was just short of 'high genius'...so I guess I'm just a genius. :rolleyes:

This thread would be more informative if we all took the same IQ test and posted our scores from that... hmmm... I might be too lazy to take another one, actually.

No offense blackrat364, but that would make this post all more of a waste. If an IQ test were to be "somewhat" helpful, I think it should be a one-on-one test that last several hours long and tests a wide range of things.

IQ test as is I think are silly. How do you measure how smart somebody is? If you can find a way, then you should be able to find a way to measure how "hot" somebody is also.

Q: Sir, what is your IQ;
A: Well, I think I can see pretty well, I think.

I agree that IQ tests are pointless... the results vary significantly between tests. However, if we were all comparing results from the same test, it would be somewhat more meaningful than what we're doing... still pointless, but better.

Well, that's what "hotornot.com" is for![/sarcasm]

I totally agree, Shadow. According to the official Govtcheez IQ test I administered offline to myself (you can tell it's a better test 'cause it's not online), I scored apple/raspberry. I'm not sure what it means, but I checked it on their scale, and it said "farfegnugen". That's right below "All New Version 7.0!" and right above "Screwdriver". I'm pretty sure that's good.

I do not believe in IQ tests. They prove nothing, and are a waste of time.

So you have the intellect rivalled only by inanimate objects?
Amazing.

Well imo online iq tests r all crap, and ones on tv r also crap. Very inaccurate. Yes, you can measure a person's intellectual capacity, but to a degree. To get an accurate result, u really need a professional session with a psychiatrist or something, takes a few hours etc.

Here's a relatively unknown "fact": If you score 80 or below and demand a rescore, your IQ is automagically raised one standard deviation. If you score 130 or above and proceed to boast about it to everyone you know and even don't know, your IQ is lowered two standard deviations.

I was told I have an IQ of 132, but that was three years ago, when I was 18.

I'll agree that IQ tests are far from perfect, but that doesn't mean they're worthless. They are necessary for testing extremes such as mental retardation and giftedness. Standardized testing for such things is essential in public education. However, if one guy gets a 140 and another gets 141, that doesn't mean jack $$$$. Comparing IQ scores that are all in the genius range is rather pointless.

I think they are fairly useless, there are many other ways to diagnose mental retardation other than IQ. I don't buy IQ as a usefull test for "giftedness" or rather i don't see it adding anything to the obvious social tests we all use (academic ability, musical talent, 'intelligent' remarks etc.).

The problem is by using a (supposedly) standardised test and marketing it as science (its is most definately NOT) people are led to believe that the IQ test is a "real" test of intelligence, that someone with say 118 IS less 'intelligent' than someone with say 136.

186 - advanced genius. Those of you who know me well will just view this as PROOF that IQ tests prove nothing.

I'm 13 and my band directer said he scored 193 :rolleyes: . He wasn't jocking eigther.. I gues he wanted to fill smart. My online test gave me 138 -:D 22 below Mister Gates. The one I took in school several years ago to get into gifted was over 125 but below 130(I forgot). Eigther I'm smarter then then or online testing needs improvement.

edit: I'm 144 'Gifted' now. Yes It was a diferent test.. I found a place that's suposed to raise your IQ;)

Drop out of school and start a business. Of cource being smarter than Bill Gates maby you will see the benifits of school where he failed too. Besides did that come from online testing.. if so take the test in school.
