    what did you score on the formal test?
    Between 98th and 99th percentile. I believe it was 135 ish but obviously scores vary across tests, I don't claim an enormously impressive IQ :nope:

    I have had two formal tests.

    One was one by a psychologist at a younger age in which i got 132. And the other at Mensa which I believe i was about 110. I was depressed at the time and I'd like to retake the test but im willing to accept I have a low IQ.

    Online IQ tests arent reliable but I think there is something to be said for the genuine ones. I suspect, however, that my personal intelligence or lack of has fluctuated throughout my life.
