I paid for a profesional IQ test and it only scaled up to 143 theoretically. I got 1 item wrong and now that site tells I've got the IQ 130.

What the fuck. Get out of here. What a false premise, go fuck yourself.

Let me tell the most ridiculous thing. The site told I'm perhaps amongst the most 8% intelligent people around.

Oh my god what bollocks this is. We really laughed this over with a bunch of my friends. One of them owns a formula 1 track and they really know where their money's at.
The other guy finances media, like videos and movies.
We agreed that the common IQ tests really don't tell shit. You would have to pay top dollar to find out what the IQ is really worth.

8% is an enormous group. Like 8% of a 50 million of people is 4 millions of people.

I can't believe anyone would pay money for something so pointless.

Did the test not advertise the range it was testing with? Did you not look at the reviews ahead of time to make sure that it was what you actually wanted? Any decent product should have this information readily available, else you fell for a scam or a marketing ploy lol. If you're really about "maintaining your position at the top" (using a method that's.... Highly debated and arguably outdated), wouldn't it be more efficient to look at the question you missed and focus on further improving your abilities by looking at where your weaknesses are rather than being sad that the test didn't affirm your perspective of yourself?
