So, how smart are you? My IQ is apparently 150, but I'm not so sure about that. Sometimes I can be quite thick. :|

I don't need to take a test to know it will be low.

My IQ = yours(x) + 10^2

A high IQ is not really a good indicator of intelligence at all. I once met a rock (an actual rock) that had a very high IQ but it was a rock and rocks are stupid

My IQ is divisible by 17!

03-29-2009, 02:53 AM
So, 17 then, Yari? :p

I don't know what my IQ is. I took some online one for fun the other day and got a 143 though. I'm sure those things are completely inaccurate though.

A real IQ test takes about 2 hours to complete.

So yeah, probably. xD

Mine is fairly high, but I don't know exactly what it is.

I don't really care; it's not like busting out your IQ is gonna endear anyone to you. There's better ways of proving your smarts.

Please watch The Soup with week. There's a kid with an IQ of 176 and they tell him that Albert Einstein's was only 160. He says "who's that?"

I don't like the online tests because they calculate your score based on time taken. The last one I did gave me a 129 and I had to answer about half of the pattern questions without being able to see them. The stupid pictures didn't load :mad2:

Maybe your score would have been higher if you knew something about computers huh?

Come on... we should all have an ID card with our IQ in big crazy letters... I mean numbers... printed on it.

Also mine's at least seven.

blah blah blah IQ = intelligence quotient, only means how much you're capable of learning, blach blah, not what you actually know, yada yada mostly the same kinds of tests, blargh I got 154 on the one momiji did in his lj, blah blah they haven't been taken seriously since like the 60s, even this book I read about how to teach gifted students that was published in the 80s said so blah. cough.

I know enough about computers to know that the fault lies with my internet connection, which is really :bou::bou::bou::bou:.

Let me put it this way. My net downloads at a rate of 3kb/s.
Half the time I'm lucky if pages load. smurfing Australian internet :mad2:

I once took an internet IQ test 10 times in a row and the last time it told me my IQ was higher than 99.73% of the population! :razz:

I really hate those really long online IQ tests when all is going well until I finish and it asks me for my email. Then I yell at my friends for linking them to me and wasting my time.

It’s either 27 or 72. Since I travel forward through time faster than most other people, I often have inverted perception. Either way, I’m retarded... but at least I’m not a jerk.

About a ratio of 136, but that was just off online tests, never did a legit one.

Truly that is the greatest testament that they do not measure anything even vaguely resembling intelligence.

What's an IQ test? Seriously what does it measure?

It seems to measure solving IQ tests to me. I usually get 140+

Darkswordofchaos

its supposed to measure your ability to learn by looking at your mental age vs. chronilogical age or somthing

IQ measures how well you do on an IQ test. That's pretty much it. It certainly isn't an indicator of how well you'll do in life.

That's fine. Intelligence isn't the same as knowledge. Knowing who Einstein was and what he did has little to do with how good you are at solving problems and seeing patterns, etc.

I took a somewhat proper test once, and I landed at 117, though I think it relied a bit too much on knowledge.

@ Pureghetto:
They're supposed to give a representation of how well you solve real life logical problems and stuff, but you're right in the sense that if you do lots of IQ tests, and do many exercises that are similar to the ones you get a IQ tests, you'll do better at them, but then I don't think it really reflects your real life performance :p.

I guess it can be compared to a test of your physique. On a normal person, you don't have to do a zillion tests for every single muscle in your body to get a pretty good estimate of how fit you are, but if you specifically train the muscle groups that you know will matter most next time you get yourself tested, it's no longer going to reflect your actual fitness level.

*sigh* This is where I lose respectability.

When I was at school, I was lucky enough to be able to apply for Cambridge University, as I was a straight A student. Also, at the same time as that, my school were in the middle of some IQ research which meant that I was immediately flagged up by my teachers. I took a genuine IQ test and scored 152. A lot of it was highly unrelated to intelligence, and more related to the way in which your brain works things out. As it happens, I have incredibly limited common sense. ;)

Naturally, I turned down my Cambridge offer for the one at Royal College.

Lawr

I read this quote once that went " IQ will never replace I am or I will. " I took a test once, and it didn't seem like it was an actual intelligence test, more of what Gwawr said. :D

My friends always made fun of me for not having 'common sense' but I ask, what is common sense? The laws and modes of our societies change frequently, and what may seem common in one era not at all in the next, or in the same era but another society.
