I'm pretty confident in saying this test isn't accurate. At least I hope not because my score was rather low...

I get around 135

I'll post a screenshot. This is of a different one mind you; A better one in my opinion:

IQ can differ though, and it doesn't say how sucessful you will be. I get a rather high score in the tests, but I wouldn't say I'm any different to anyone else. I do though have social issues I still need to sort out. I suffer from social anxiety to an extent. I also worry about little things that probably shouldn't bother me as much as they do.
Does it mean I think slightly differently? Maybe.

My friend has a lower IQ in these tests, but is a lot more business orientated than me, has more street intelligence (if that makes sense), and can talk to pretty much anyone and is going go to go very far.
On the other hand, there is me. I have no idea yet...

This is what I got on that one anyway just now. Posted the time too:

I got 133 but I have done others, some where I get 142, 139 but in a couple low 130s high 120s. I think the only reliable IQ tests are the larger question # tests or the mensa test. Having 20 questions docks your IQ too much. In the one that was on the BBC that time I got 141

It says 160+

I doubt this is very accurate. I wouldn't consider myself a genius.

EDIT: When I closed the tab and went to recently closed it said 'Free IQ Test - My IQ Score is 172.' Again, not very reliable IMO.

125. IQ is bloody pointless. England is a country, the Pacific is an ocean, the sequence of patterns? It's ridiculous.

It's not accurate, free IQ tests always embellish user scores. If you want to find out your actual IQ you will have to take a MENSA sanctioned IQ test. I scored a mean of 150 a couple of years ago using online tests, then I tried one from MENSA and scored a paltry 116, needless to say; I was not invited to join their high IQ society.

Taking an online IQ test is pretty much pointless. There is no guarantee of real statistical validity.

I have taken a few properly administered IQ tests at various points in my life; when I was about eight the WISC indicated 142, I think - and the most recent official test I took at 18 (the WAIS) indicated 145. Between those two times, it fluctuated but remained between 135-148.

It is quite hard to deny that there are very interesting statistical correlations between scores on IQ testing and real-life outcomes and achievements, though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelli...ocial_outcomes

Intelligence tests on the whole are utterly ridiculous and outdated.

Research the roots of these 'metrics' and you will see a horrid and disturbing past.

I take it you're not aware of tests like Raven's Progressive Matrices or the Cattell Culture Fair.

I'm afraid I have neither the conviction nor time to debate this for any real depth.

But whilst their purpose may have changed, their elitism has not. IQ can be useful in certain situations, but as an overall view of someones intelligence alone it is not.

While we're on the topic; the book The Bell Curve by Harvard psychologist Richard J. Herrnstein is well worth a read if you're interested in the nature, causes and effects of differential levels of intelligence in contemporary society.

When did I say that?

Even if I was not, their existence would not alter my opinion.

Well, the apparent implication of your post was that you believe that IQ tests are biased against certain groups and/or are designed to discriminate unfairly between certain groups or peoples.

If that's the case, I'm not quite sure how you could maintain that position when cultural bias has been determinedly removed from modern tests like those I mentioned.
