    These aren't real IQ tests. Furthermore, even "real" IQ tests are no indicator of intelligence; like today's exams, they do not test your aptitude or intelligence, just your ability to do the test. You are better off using your vocabulary range as a yardstick by which to measure intelligence!

    I got 130 on the first test the nation IQ thing, and then 171 on an internet one, which was way too lenient!

    I'm not saying that these online tests are actually accurate at all - but surely a persons intelligence and aptitude is a key factor in their ability to do the test?

    Not really. At all. It only shows how well you can answer those questions - and that is not necessarily intelligence. It's like GCSE and 11+ exams today; they do not test your knowledge of the content or ability to reason, they only test your exam technique i.e. your ability to answer those questions. Most of my colleagues cannot and could never speak a full sentence of french that they hadn't simply crammed and yet achieved A* grades. Furthermore, IQ tests tend to have cultural bias, and are unable to test the intelligence of people who may have the capacity to be brilliant, but the questions are simply alien to then. I can try to find more information on IQ tests and intelligence in general if you like. It is also necessary to consider what precisely intelligence is. You don't need to be intelligent for example, to get 10 A*s for GCSE.

    I still think that if someone is quick at seeing the odd shape out of four, or can figure out those logical "an Asian is to China as a..." type questions then they are quite likely to be more intelligent than someone who cannot work out how to do the questions. Although admittedly, once you've done a few IQ tests they get a bit predictable so results improve?
