    The closest thing I've taken to an IQ test is the SAT(the American college admissions one) and I ended up with 2120/2400 in that (770 math, 720 critical reading, 680 writing), which is somewhere in the 97th percentile(top 3% worldwide).

    I'd like to put forward 2 questions to those who have taken an IQ test in controlled exam conditions, overseen by any governing body which mensa would accept as genuine enough for entry (in this case, disregarding the score of course).

    i.e the real deal, no online tests, home tests etc (I'm sure someone will still make a joke concerning this regulation, I'm waiting.....)

    Questions:

    a) What is your IQ? (out of interest )

    b) Do you accept IQ scores (in general) as good measurements of general intelligence?



    Thanks.
    Unofficial one: 133

    I had one done by someone at my school, and they said it was impossible to average out a score for me, as I'm in the 95th percentile with literacy and memory skills but in the 40th percentile for mathematical skills or something like that, so an average wouldn't give a true reading. :dontknow:

    Basically, I'm good at English, writing and remembering things, and awful at maths. Which I already knew!

    I consider both to be pretty meaningless numbers. Although IQ tests are still fun sometimes
    I'm sure

    Yes, I know, hence why I included the bit about the official one I had done at school...there wasn't a concrete score, which is why I included the unofficial one.

    Then the average is your score on the IQ test (if it was official), even if your poor mathematical ability drags it down.

    Everyone is judged by the same system to see how good they are at handling the questions on the test. If this wasn't the case, there wouldn't be much point to the points/score system.

    One of my lecturers said that intelligence is a measure of the ability to take a complex concept and make it simple and easy to understand. I think that's a pretty good view to have.

    No.

    Who even really cares about IQ anyway? The tests don't measure "intelligence", they merely measure how well you can respond to their questions which, aside from mathematical ones, never really appear in life.
