    Cool

    I wonder how many of you took an actual IQ test (Hint: It has to be standardized to be accurate) and not an internet IQ test (which will be horribly inaccurate).

    Not to burst anyone's bubble, but c'mon, not everyone can be a genius. It doesn't work that way ;p

    It seems to me that internet IQ test scores are super inflated. I mean, come on, anyone can make a minimum of 140 on those. I personally have made scores ranging from 140 to 160.

    I do know however that my "real" IQ score is approx. 135. I don't think I put much value in IQ scores regardless, though.
    Oh...hi.

    Argh.. Every place I've been where IQ is discussed never mentions the standard deviation of the scores, there's a huge difference between standard deviations. The European/Cattel scale has a standard deviation of 24 while the Stanford-Binet/USA scale has a standard deviation of 16, and Stanford-Binet/European (at least the Swedish mensa test scale) scale has a standard deviation of 15.

    My IQ is 126, my parents had me tested for a gifted program when I was in upper elementary school.

    I did a test with a psychiatrist when I was younger and I scored 141. On online test I score between 130-145.
    ... Except one in which I scored 68.

    I'm a GED graduate, so there is no need for me to even bother.
    My IQ isn't anything special.
    What a waste of life..

    When I was tested in elementary school by a gifted and talented program, I registered as fairly high (enough to skip 2-3 grades).

    I think that IQ tests are useful for giving a general idea of spatial reasoning ability, specifically in a Western context. Outside of those raised in Western Europe and America I wouldn't even consider this test as significant. There are far too many areas of 'intelligence' to be measured in one written test.

    my iq is about 130-140, conventional tests don't really go above 140. you have to get a specially designed, highly difficult test if your iq is above. my asvab was 94. i scored a 29 on my ACT: 95th percentile. they all seem to correlate pretty well.
