    OH.
    Lemme recalculate.
    See you later.

    the calculation @Nicodemus posted I did based on the results of my last official iq test and current age (my result was 110 at 19 i'm sure now it's lower) and it put me at 30. I've always felt younger so i don't think that's correct
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    That's because the concept of mental age is bullshit.

    This would be easier.
    Thus:
    IQ/100 = MentalAge/BiologicalAge
    x/100 = 46/17
    x = 270

    Still incorrect.
    Then the test is inaccurate.

    Lowest IQ value I’ve got on tests: 116 >> mental age = 19,72 > 19
    highest IQ value I’ve got on tests: 134 >> mental age = 22,27 > 22

    I support the concept of ‘Mental age’ as a value to link IQ and EQ, but it needs improvement, obviously.

    Mental age according to quiz: 44

    Actual age: 33

    Using this formula, MA = IQ/100 * AA, 43

    Soo, interesting.

    If the numbers weren't practically the same I'd call bullshit. Actually I'm calling bullshit anyway, cuz I have no idea what "mental age" even is.

    And besides answering "Yes" to "If somebody farted at a funeral, would you laugh?" should have knocked me down to 12 years old.
    I've had this ice cream bar, since I was a child!

    Each thought's completely warped
    I'm like a walkin', talkin', ouija board.

    The test which gave you 46 and the IQ equation have nothing to do with each other. The test was created by some kid on the internet. The IQ equation, though debatable, was conceived of by the creators of the then-standard IQ test.

    Adults can have a sense of humor and a distaste for forced solemnity too.
