    It's not just IQ: go on a height thread and everyone's above 6ft, go on a thread about career and everyone's going to be getting at least 50k a year...

    Probably somewhere between 10 and 200.

    IQ tests are BS, all they test is how good you are at IQ tests.

    :dontknow: I guess some people need to be validated by anonymous strangers.

    I guess people get kick out of it like how trolls get a kick out of trolling.

    I haven't, either. I don't know whether I should...

    I suppose not. Would it be any kind of an advantage to your CV? Also, is it worth trying to become a MENSA member?

    I don't really think so though I suppose it depends on the job and employer. Mensa have a magazine and some interesting societies that maybe you would be interested in joining.

    Yes. My brother is a MENSA member.

    I lol at all these ridiculous scores on this thread and the fact that people believe they're geniuses. :rolleyes:. Truth is, most people here wouldn't reach 115 on a proper certified I.Q. test. I don't think I.Q. tests mean much anyway.

    Your age is irrelevent when it comes to I.Q. A 5 year old can have an I.Q. of 150 but you wouldn't say they're more intelligent than the average adult male.

    Anyway, as hawkings said himself, those who boast about I.Q. are losers.

    I honestly don't see the appeal of Mensa, it almost seems like paying for self validation.

    You wouldn't say it was BS if it turned out you got 201 though you might not believe it was correct but you'd still happily take it as your result

    Hi!

    I wasn't sure where to put this thread, but here I am!

    Out of interest, I was wondering what all of your IQs are for those of you who have taken a test.

    Although it was only a free online test I took ( and it was the first I've ever taken ), so it was probably not the most accurate, I got 116.

    Is this good considering that I'm in Year 9? Could my IQ improve? If so, how can I improve it?

    Thank you! I look forward to seeing your replies.

    but since that's supposedly the case, I'm gonna say that IQ doesn't actually exist, considering that there are (again, supposedly) 9 types of intelligence :rolleyes:
