    This is just another ego-massaging thread, but it would be interesting to see TSR's spread of scores compared to the general population.

    I got 133 which I'm pretty chuffed about, although it's probably not accurate as it was a 20 question online test...

    Definitely not a believer in the reliability of these tests to determine intelligence. I haven't taken a MENSA test, nor has my brother but our youngest sister, who happens to be the least intelligent of the 3 of us, got 161.

    I've done a few tests and got a range of scores, so I doubt they are particularly reliable.

    Highest score: 145
    Lowest score: 128


    I tend to average around 135 though

    Oh. Man.

    I'm going to get a myriad of pedantic responses now, aren't I?

    I wish not to debate the definition of intelligence... 😔
    Maybe I should delete my comment and hide. 😖

    There are different tests with different ranges. Needs to be converted to a percentile in order to reliably compare scores between tests.

    Professionally tested when I was younger I got 132. I don't know how different it would be today, but I also know to take IQ tests with a pinch of salt. No matter what, there is no substitute for hard work.

    In fact one of the greatest physicists ever, Richard Feynman, was said to have an IQ of 125 - which compared to a lot of the large numbers found on these threads and from other people bragging is considered small. Still doesn't change the fact that he was brilliant, and that a lot of highly intelligent people out there, moreso than him, haven't come close to achieving what he did.
