    170, although sometimes I'm not so sure XD As someone else said, it was tested a while ago.
    Neither of the tests used currently (or as far as I've ever known) by Mensa go as high as 170.

    It wasn't done by Mensa, rather a professor. As far as I can remember, it was called the Stanford-Binet test.

    Yeah I think it would be. I don't know how to compare Stanford-Binet to IQ tests more commonly used in the UK, did you get told a percentile rating? That is far more relevant than any IQ figure anyway.

    As in, what percentage of the population? For example, the top 5% of the population.

    No genuinely intelligent person would be remotely interested in what their IQ is, unless it was for research purposes.

    Yeah, exactly that, but world population of course.

    Does a person really need to be doing research to have an interest in intelligence theory in your mind? Does that logic not apply to everything? They must be performing research to be interested in something?

    Certainly anyone stating IQ as a value without stating the test involved doesn't grasp the concept of IQ though, and would easily mislead people who don't know how IQ tests work. A 150 score in a Stanford Binet test is a lot lower than a 150 score in a Cattell test but I am intrigued where 170 lies in comparison.

    What I meant was that bragging about having a high IQ is not a sign of intelligence.

    Oh yeah, I concur. I take it you are interested in intelligence/IQ because you read/post in this thread though?
