    You appear to have a limited vocabulary and lack the ability to identify the correct responses for a variety of different questions. A deficient vocabulary can hinder you in many ways; you may struggle to find the correct words when speaking, fail to understand what others are communicating to you, or come across as inarticulate to others. Fortunately, with practice, and by expanding your reading materials and making a conscious effort to learn new words, your vocabulary can gradually increase."

    This test made me feel really stupid. I had a lot of "I don't know"s because I didn't know many of the words in that first half of the test.
    I don't agree with the little paragraph though; I communicate just fine with others. I just don't know all of those fancy words I've never heard anyone use before in my life.

    Ahh well this certainly explains things....

    Jk lol you come off completely fine. The test wasn't norm referenced to account for age so that percentile is against everyone who took that test, including people who have had 10+ more years to learn those words. (Or at least I think it is?) used the back button to change the age range and no change in score... Online IQ tests are more for fun anyways

    Those words set the bar pretty high, and there's really no accounting for cheaters screwing with the percentile.

    I scored 123 and I'd never want to actually use a lot of those words that were on the test. Trying to use them would feel pretentious and ridiculously unnecessary.

    Didn't catch the score. In the 87th percentile. Not bad, but worse than I anticipated.

    IQ score = 148
    Percentile = 99.93

    I don't use a lot of the words in the test, but I know what they mean. Although the only reason I know a lot of them is because of Shakespeare. I wouldn't know what the heck a "firmament" was if I'd never read Hamlet. Nobody says "firmament" in real life.

    You also know it if you had a heavy biblical education. And if you do, you really get the drive to use it in every day life. "I uhh really hope that New Horizon probe doesn't bounce off of the firmament before it gets to Pluto, Bob."

    I received 130. Many of the words were words I once knew well when I scored a 36 on my ACT - back when it was way harder than it is today. The problem with the test is that it's biased. Most of the day I am reading financial statements, not Shakespeare or any modicum of classic literature. All the words on the exam are words that would be found in classic literature. Many of them are not even Latin or Greek derived. It is slanted and biased towards the "English Teacher," and people of Germanic/Anglo decent.

    Therefore adjust your score...if you are southern European or not Caucasian, add 300 to your score.

    If you are of Irish/German/North European decent, subtract 10,000.

    I'm pretty sure I'd need to be a native speaker for this to be valid (despite the fact that I'm getting a degree in English).
