I know there are several tests online
and I've taken those.
But there are test doctors give as well
In my case I took that one.
Either way, having taken both, my results are pretty much the same.
My result is above (above average)- which is not above average but above that.
I forget the exact term for that
I think there's supposed to be a #. I [b] think [\b] mine was 120 but I'm not sure.
What are you- if you feel like telling
I believe Einstein was 160 and I heard Steven Hawkins is over 200.
[I really should just look this up!
and do you know any further info?
I'd be curious
I have taken several IQ tests and I come out as 131 or 132 depending on which test I have taken.
27.3 is not a great score Greek one, that's even lower than my score of 31!
oops.. sorry.. forgot the decimal point after the 2
I've taken a few of those free online tests. They show up at around 140 and are obviously worth what you pay for them.
I took mine a few years ago. I did 3 tests within 2 weeks. My highest score was 132 and my lowest was 122. My friend likes to tell me, though, that success is not about IQ - it's about 'I can'. And I totally agree.
A psychologist tested me. The results said 157, but I don't know that I believe that. He also tested my brain quadrants. I tested almost zero in both left quadrants and off the charts in both right quadrants. I guess that means I'm retarded in math and analytical skills and a genius in language and creativity. lol
Pretty obvious to me - it's why you are on HP, after all!
Hmmm. I'm glad you took it right. Re-reading, it could be taken that your oh-so-obvious retardation is why you are here! Sorry, Habee - I've followed and paid attention to the other part of you for many months here.
I kinda expected -well not kinda, did- high scores after all we're on hp
my niece said hers was 180..i was like ?
she was so proud she used it in her email/fb/name lol
Over 140 - Genius or near genius
120 - 140 - Very superior intelligence
110 - 119 - Superior intelligence
90 - 109 - Normal or average intelligence
80 - 89 - Dullness
70 - 79 - Borderline deficiency
Under 70 - Definite feeble-mindedness
I am in the presence of many geniuses if this is right.
I sometimes think the good doctor put a "1" in front of mine out of kindness. lol. It's strange - I can feel so smart sometimes, and at other times, I feel like a total moron. I can't do anything mechanical, like recording a movie, putting oil in the car, or programming the microwave. Stuff like that just doesn't compute in my brain. I'm extremely creative, however, which is how I got the IQ points. People are always coming to me for creative ideas about art, cooking, decorating, and designing stuff. I don't really see how creativity equates with intelligence, though. You might want me to help you design a backdrop for a play, but you certainly wouldn't me to help you with algebra!! lol
I think we all have things that we are NOT good at.
I love engineering and carpentry.
I can get a bearing in a racing motor to a zillionth of an inch, but cant cut a piece of wood straight or join corners.
I also get the engineering wrong with wood. I built a hardwood kitchen for my wife so over-engineered it was heavy enough to double as a bomb shelter! (If it had two straight joins anywhere!)
I have no idea what anyone's IQ is, or their EQ for that matter.
I think there are too many variables myself.
I can programm a vcr, change a tire, and am very creative too. but your hubs are way better than mine
Oh, I luv that! "very superior intelligence" I feel great
I don't know or care. IMHO what matters is what you do, not your theoretical potential.
When I was 18 years old I took several IQ test. My range was between 150-170.
IQ means nothing.....it's the mileage in your wisdom that speaks volumes in your life.
I don't know about that - the more mileage I get, the less wisdom I seem to have. Senility, perhaps.
Well said, I have never done an IQ test..It annoys me when people hype this stuff up, its all based on logical questions which have indication of whether you could be a philosophical genious
My IQ is 157 I was in Mensa while in College. As I get older I believe it goes down.
My IQ has been calculated at 159, 160, and 163, as measured by medical and physiological professionals over the years; my mother was a quirky chick and this kind of thing mattered to her. Personally, I have my doubts as to its importance. I also had a stay with the wonderfully courageous Mensa nerds,...this was when I decided it was time to learn some self defense tactics, as no matter how IQ rich one is, there is usually someone smarter, and always someone bigger and meaner! AEvans, I agree. As I age my IQ is rapidly declining!
My IQ is about 10 until I've had enough coffee in the morning. My kids have actually been tested as part of the early intervention program - I looked at the numbers and then hid them. I don't want them to know the "numbers" and determine their self worth or ability level based on a series of numbers.
I honestly think you have the perfect idea Leah. Those IQ numbers mean nothing in terms of self worth! Environment, health conditions, life lessons, all add up to make us who we are and where we end up in life. The Uni-Bomber had an extremely high IQ and look where it took him, straight to homicidal insanity! Some number attached to that worth can do far more harm than good, trust me!
@ the OP - No................do i care?.....no....it could go up and down depending on my mood and what's happening in life.....
I do find it interesting that nearly everyone claims a number in the top 1% (IQ above 135).
To me that says something about the value of an IQ score. Or about honesty....
Everyone wants to be a genius (sigh)...
The average IQ score is increasing over time (something called the Flynn Effect) - someone with an average IQ of 100 in 1910 would score lower on a test taken today. It is a fascinating effect... but are people truly more intelligent today than they were 100 years ago?
not sure what you mean by someone earning a lower score today. That's dumb. No, I don't think people are smarter today. I THINK that school's are trying to make people look smarter- I may be wrong- to get into college or imo people -mainstream- are getting dumber and following the govt like sheep and/or believe everything they hear (prob mostly US) and forget the past can repeat itself...
The Flynn Effect means that the average score on the Stanford-Binet IQ test has steadily risen over time: the same test, but the average person is scoring higher. There are a number of theories as to the cause of the effect - the most common is the access to education and resources for the general population has increased over time.
The Flynn Effect is leveling off in developed countries.
I absolutely agree Leah. With people having intense access to a greater depth of information and education (via computers) this allows for a better scoring opportunity for modern test subjects. I still think you are the coolest mom ever for keeping those scores from your kids. I feel as if you are doing them a favor, placing your own ego aside and thinking of your child's best interest. What an awesome concept!
I think people have changed to a more more "scientific" outlook that is what the test makers see as being intelligent.
They may be more intelligent, but have less common sense.
but most of us bathe more often, and use indoor plumbing now
Not me. Like Pooh, I'm a bear with a very small brain.
I was tested when I was younger, and it was 137...pretty sure having kids knocked it down a few pegs...lol
I was 132 on the last test that i took... *pats self on back*
I would suggest not putting much faith in online tests, most of them a re not validated and many up biased to overestimate for various reasons (they often leave out the block and card tests). A formal IQ should be done using one of the recognized and large-scale validated tests.
161 before children - I am guessing it is closer to 60 now.
I was tested by a psychiatrist about twenty years ago. At that time it was not quite good enough for the Prometheus society, but very close (on another day I might have made it).

What does having an IQ above 145 mean? Are these people really 'genius'?

According to American psychological assessments, the average IQ in the United States is the abysmalrange from 90-100, with an average IQ of 98 while superior intelligence is 110-125, gifted is 130-139 and genius or near genius is 140 and above. What does this IQ assessment say about the...

I have a few friends who have an IQ of over 150 or so, and they are really something else...Their behavior, their beliefs, their logic and a lot of different things can really tell you that they are different from most people you will meet in your life.Have you met anyone like this?
