    Just a number is meaningless unless you know the name of the test that was used (Mensa use several) and understand the scale used for that particular test.

    A better way of expressing what you're asking is to give your percentile. For example, in order to get into Mensa you have to be in the 98th percentile, which means you're in the top 2% of the population.

    Most tend to put people with specific learning disabilities at a disadvantage. The Wechler Adult Intelligence Scale is more appropriate (so I'm told), and can help with diagnosis but has to be administered by an educational psychologist (or similarly qualified person).

    It's either a number so high you'd never believe me, or so low you'd think I was saying it just to be modest/self-deprecating. Or somewhere in the average region so you'd all think I was telling the truth.

    Never managed to complete one. I get bored and give up.

    Not sure what that says.
