    Online IQ tests, they're so reliable !!

    Jk jk, I paid about £25 to get a supervise IQ test from one of Mensa's centres, about 2 years ago.
    Do you go straight to the centre, or do you book online or something?

    Do you not think it was a bit of a waste of money? Are IQ tests even looked at by anybody in the real world? Do they even matter to an extent?
    Nobody IRL cares, except in military, obvs, because they always love quoting IQ in the movies.
    It's just there as a little reminder to the person taking it..

    NO I don't think you can go straight to the centre. I booked in advance.

    LOL it's true, no one does care about it. :rofl: It only would look nice on your personal statement or something if the person was part of Mensa, I don't want to tell them I got rejected by 5 points. :rofl: :cry2:

    My dad's part of Mensa so he really wanted me to do the test. :lol: At the same time I was curious to know what my IQ was anyway, and it's not like I'm going to show my IQ certificate everywhere. :rofl: It would've been looked at in the real world if I actually did get accepted into Mensa. (tfw rejection; I was about 5 IQ points away )
    TFW You get rejected from the most pretentious organisation known to man:

    Don't most people believe they're better than average at pretty much anything. Apparently most people when asked consider themselves more intelligent, physically fit and healthier than the average person and believe they'll live longer. If most people say this then they can't all be right can they.

    Encourages what? Is it not a legitimate form of discussion.
