    118, though I think intelligence is more of a lifelong process than something that can be measured in one go. I consider myself average.

    @Magic Poriferan, that is excellent analysis.

    As for what our IQ's are, as far as "intelligence quotient" goes, I agree with the popular theory that there are many different kinds of intelligence, only some of which are measured by tests; I think the most intelligent people score high in the most areas. Strictly speaking though, it would be the ability to adapt to one's environment by solving problems; this requires a good measure of creativity, which is not tested.

    Also intelligence is highly malleable. It has been shown that people who believe they are smart perform better on tests and get better grades. (There have been experiments where children were given false test results, their progress was monitored, then they were told the real ones and monitored again.) If you think you are smart and act like it, you will be. So I say think positively.

    One more thing; I read that after about 135 people's intelligence doesn't really increase, it just specializes. So if you pass that mark, you can essentially do anything you want. A lot of people I think are smart enough to do anything they put their minds to and they just don't know it- so they probably would test in that range if the tests were accurate. I have tested in that range on some internet tests (of questionable accuracy), but regardless my experience is that I can succeed at whatever I try if I work hard enough, and that's good enough for me; it means I'm as smart as I need to be. Probably a lot of you underestimate your intelligence.

    Edit: And a lot of people overestimate their intelligence; but this is only a problem in the social area if they compare themselves to others unfavorably. Otherwise it probably is self fulfilling. So I unashamedly overestimate my intelligence, because it makes me perform better. I like to imagine I'm some kind of genius. I don't compare myself to other people though. I think a lot of people are as smart as I am; I probably think everyone is smarter than they are. There are tons of people who are way smarter than I am in many areas. I'm sure there are many people on this forum who understand advanced algebra with ease, take apart computers and put them back together in their spare time, and have advanced engineering degrees. But they may do poorly in some areas in which I do well.

    I got 110.

    I KNOW that I am quite average in intelligence (I typically score pretty average on all the online tests) but I can still grasp concepts/ideas very easily when I am interested or feel compelled to. I can read a few chapters once-through in one sitting (even if I hardly pay attention in lecture) and still grasp the concepts enough to score above average.

    Even though I know I am very average, things still come relatively "easy" to me and that's all that matters to me.

    So far I scored lower on this test at 100 (and an official one given by a psychologist put me at 114) than anyone in this entire thread who has posted their IQ!

    114 sounds like a reasonable IQ score for you. also, you have to take into consideration the fact that people with lower scores are unlikely to share them. there are plenty of people who took the test, scored below 100 and refused to share

    I believe this test is biased (in favor) of people with a strong visual component to their intelligence - whatever their culture of origin may be.

    I got up to Question 27 the first time and real life called, so I random-picked the rest and submitted it. Got 112. Had 20 minutes left then.

    Then today I went back and did the whole test again, using 31 minutes. Got this:



    Let's say the second time I blazed through the first 27 that I already did in 5 minutes, I spent 26 minutes on the last 12 questions, so that comes out at 2 minutes and 10 seconds per question. So I would have completed another 8 questions had I not stopped doing the test the first time. Let's minus another 2 from that where I changed my answer the second time, so that's 6 questions extra. Based on a basic, straightforward calculation of the 'extra' scores, that will be... about 120?

    I took a test in junior high and got 107. Other internet tests put me at around 105-120. I think it matters of you 'get' the author or not. I think I 'got' this one.

    What I've noticed with this test:
    - I had more problems with certain concepts that other. Some concepts seemed very natural to me, while some had me scratching my head and having to think very hard.
    - When I was attempting the test, I tried to poke at the puzzles from different angles: one of the main ones being "What is the test designer trying to do here?" I didn't feel like it was an objective test, but a reflection of what goes on in the author's mind, and I tried to guess at that to understand the overall picture. I also tried the 'blurry-eyed' technique on the ones I was stuck on to see if cutting details made anything pop.
    - There's quite a few 'digital' concepts, like doing something once makes it appear, doing it a second time makes it disappear, which I'm not sure is entirely applicable to the non-computer users (?)
    - If you've played with toys that have little 'poles' in a grid and you tie strings around them, it helps with understanding some of the puzzles.
    - 'Move one matchstick' games help.
    - Sudoku skills help.
    - Having experience watching logo elements floating in from all directions and coming together in the middle helps (like movie company logos and the microsoft logo and things like that)
    - I moved my hands and arms around a lot trying to solve the puzzles.
    - I was slightly bothered how some of the puzzles only followed 'vertical' or 'horizontal' logic flows and not nicely sudoku-ed it-works-from-all-directions out.
    - I usually do worse on tests that are less visual and tests with real life pictures, like three people of different heights holding different-colored umbrellas and you ask me to line them up logically... arrrgh.
    - And I usually do horribly on tests where each question is timed. I just crumble under the constant pressure.

    Conclusion: I agree with FDG that it's biased in favor of people with strong 'visual' intelligence, and who are fairly familiar with modern digital-age concepts.

    The whole IQ thing is kinda bunk anyway. Personally I value EQ a lot more.

    105, not counting the deviation of 15.

    Great breakdown.

    Do you know who's the person with the highest IQ ever?
