    Oh God yeah... Alot of people who are on here have "cocooned" themselves in a virtual world whereby they have responsibility, friends, and an inate sense of intelligence. It's just "rising to peer pressure" and wanting to be "perceived as clever". Who actually is going to care what anyone elses' IQ is? I for one don't give a monkeys... I think the guy who started this thread was being very impulsive and controversial at the time.

    EDIT: Sorry zhivago.
    Lol, it's only a number after all, doesn't represent much either, lol

    Then why lie about it? It obviously represents alot to those who feel the need to lie, thus, portray themselves as "intelligent." After all, this is a student forum (as you said yourself) so of course there will be people wanting attention, and wanting to appear omniscent and bright amonst fellow students.

    It wouldn't surprise me if some people didn't actually take the test or got bored and made up an I.Q.

    I didn't realise that there was a timer, so I was actually on another website for about 10 minutes. Having left around 3/7th's of the questions unanswered, I got 99.

    Lol, some people actually believe that IQ can be measured using a crude psychometric test (which i believe is culturally biased as well!)...

    No, lol, shows how much people pay attention


    Before i was 'proving' that students are clever (and get high IQ's) because they learn, and that IQ tests measure other things as well..


    But IQ's are the biggest load of rubbish ever, culturally biased, reductionist (trying to make complex things into a single number)


    They also linked to the second world war, and tha Nazi's (the Aryan race), when they falsely found that Africans, and other cultures where less intelligent than the Americans, or Germans


    :p:

    I'm just interested in knowing peoples IQ levels, as I tried the test below earlier. It turns out I'm just average (IQ 100 exactly).

    If you're not sure what yours is, try this:

    i'm not sure how accurate those things are. i didn't take the test in the link you've got there, but i had my IQ tested officially/professionally when i was but a wee lass, and i've since done internet IQ tests. none of the scores have ever been the same as either my 'official' IQ, nor even as each other, lol.
