    Default Best IQ test ever

    I recently found an IQ test online : Cooijmans On-Line Test - Two-barrelled version - description and ordering information
    I have never tried such a hard test. In particular, it involves divergent thinking.

    Has anyone tested it ?

    "Best IQ test ever" followed by "has anyone ever test it" LMAO. Just because something is full of super esoteric bs, costs money and claims to be really really hard doesn't mean its the best IQ test or even a good test of intelligence at all. Oh and as far as Paul Cooljmans goes I think he's gone completely bonkers.

    There is no esoterism in this test. Just puzzles of logic, resolution of numerical and verbal analogies. Sure enough it is paying and statistics of the results provided that seem relevant.
    In my opinion, an entertainment game...

    You also said it was the best IQ test, are you saying its entertainment and also the best IQ test? What is your reasoning? Many IQ tests have all the things you've mentioned. This one being extremely difficult doesn't make it a better test of intelligence, at least not for most people. I've tried some of these extremely difficult puzzles before, ones that were free of charge. I don't think they're a particularly good measure of mental function or capacity. Obviously if you are extremely intelligent you will do better on them then if you are not, but that doesn't mean that they accurately measure someone's intellectual potential.

    LOL yeah, I suppose that's true. Not saying IQ tests are a perfect measure of intelligence (far from it) but all other things being equal, something that is suited to measuring 99% of the population is probably an overall better test than one that is suited to only 1% (and this is definitely suited more to the highest 1% if you look at the scale).

    well, when you phrase it that way i agree; though i would add the caveat that for many, iq tests are just another "dick measuring contest"... for the folks of "comparable measurement" the appeal of more refined measuring devices is easy to see...

    Paying money for mental-masturbatory rights?

    Isn't that the IQ test in itself?
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    I tried many tests (SLSE, NUmerus, analytica,...) which are less difficult than it.
    The puzzles of this test are another way to think. It takes more creativity ... something missing in the other tests. Indeed, it is paying but trainer.
