    my IQ has been at best something like 125 (random tests i took here and there) but that does not reflect me in a meaning full way, because i am like 70 with some tasks (math and language) and 160 with others tasks (spatial relations, understanding patterns/series ...). but i am not sure if even the latter reflect my true strengths, which lie in very abstract analysis - not of data but of live itself (character patterns, flow of progress and intention, direction of growth), but they seem slightly related to visual or linguistic patterns. i am also extremely slow in extracting the question/meaning from the written test instructions, so i loose in any time related test. i am generally slooow when interacting with a fucking peace of paper. i need to have every thought three times, to bring it one step further. i might loose my driving license if i have to do the so called idiot test again, because that involves connecting numbers on a piece of paper, which means that you need to have a sensorical precise map of the paper and your eyes need to obey or even just relate to your internal map. takes me ages.

    i once solved a rubics cube in like 20 seconds. i don't own one, so i don't know if i can always do it. i can throw dices/cubes and they give me the numbers i want, most of the time. lol. i can recognize an actor from behind, when i zap into a movie and he wears clothing that he never wore in a move i had seen before.

    100, by definition, is the average, with 50% below and 50% above.
    Typical Americans don't have a high IQ.
    Typical online Americans do
    ...and typical people on sites such as this have an IQ between 130 and 210, which I am not a part of.
    I can be interested in typology and still have absolutely no clue how to solve a Rubix Cube

    Me neither, actually.

    I'll stick to easier things, like the human mind.

    No idea what my IQ is. I'm not gonna think one of those "certified" online tests will give me a real score, and I'm not gonna go out of my way to find out. I don't see anything good that could result from knowing yours or anyone else's IQ anyways.
    The probability that I was procrastinating when I was typing this post:

    P(have big assignment due) = 0.6
    P(posting on TypoC) = 0.2
    P(having big assignment due | posting on TypoC) = 0.7

    P(posting on TypoC | having big assignment due) = .......


    Eh, I'll finish it later.

    I always wanted to get an official IQ test. I tried those online ones but I have I have a hard time believing that 30 or so questions can determine your intelligence...

    My IQ from the online tests seem to range from 114 - 140. A strangely wide gap.

    That is not strangely wide. My gap is about 85-155. Those tests don't have a clue.

    Online IQ tests suck. Massively.
