Took an IQ test today, it was 124. Close but no cigar.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 7:38:06 PM EST (GMT-5)
I got 132 so yes... are those tests really accurate?
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 7:40:34 PM EST (GMT-5)
A lots more.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 7:46:03 PM EST (GMT-5)
I can think that, but I doubt people on YT will believe me when most people take internet IQ tests...
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 7:58:30 PM EST (GMT-5)
hahaha waay over 5% of people on YT said they are higher. a little vain, eh?

I hope all these people who think they're geniuses aren't basing their self-worth on an internet IQ test.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 8:27:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
When I took a test I got 131, so maybe?
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 8:27:08 PM EST (GMT-5)
Even 'real' IQ tests are a load of bollocks.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 8:44:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
It said mines is 158, But I don't think IQ tests are accurate, So it doesn't matter.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 9:57:46 PM EST (GMT-5)
136 but it is not an accurate account of intelligence.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:03:44 PM EST (GMT-5)
To get into enrichment for the gifted you had to have higher than a 130, and I was in it. The classes and teaching was a bit unorthodox.
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:11:57 PM EST (GMT-5)
I got mine tested at school and it was 161. Im not surprised though. I am the smartest person you will ever meet

I remember that stuff from middle school! Oh, we used to get out of regular classes to go program robots and have book discussions. I don't believe ours had a 130 IQ cutoff.. some idiots were in the program.

You know.. sometimes I wonder if you're a parallel-dimension me, whose parents didn't move from Kansas City...

That sounds a little conceited. Eh. Maybe creepy? Sorry.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:18:41 PM EST (GMT-5)
^Ha. Don't spook me out even more than I already am!
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:22:15 PM EST (GMT-5)
I doubt it.

The only IQ tests I've taken are internet tests, and those aren't valid.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:24:59 PM EST (GMT-5)
Eeek! It's quite an odd and creepy night. And I'm so tired, this is totally making sense to me right now..

Actually, I've been thinking about going to MO for college. Depends on if Washington University would accept me and if I could pay for it.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:26:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Wait, I'm really slow.

And now I'm spamming up this thread.

This probably does not reflect well on my IQ score.

(Really sorry.. )

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 10:49:55 PM EST (GMT-5)
142, but had a inaccuracy range thing of 14 so i dont know

It's pretty predictable, actually.
Almost every time an IQ-related question on YT pops up, dozens of people come in and claim to have ridiculously high IQs.

I'm pretty sure that YT has a higher percentage of people with 130+ IQs than the general population, but I highly doubt that almost 50% of YTers are that intelligent.

^ Indeed, when talking population average we're talking those who also have no computer access and are living in backwater towns etc. Those who regularly attend a forum and can afford to use a computer, would tend to be above the 100 average.

Yeah, I took a 'real' one from my psychology teacher and got 152, didn't believe it for a second.

15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 11:20:04 PM EST (GMT-5)
I think mine was 120, but that wasn't in my age group or anything. Plus it was the internet...
15 yrs ago, 10 mos ago - Monday 8/7/06 - 11:31:05 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've taken a frew internet ones, which all put me just around 130, although I doubt they're accurate.

My SAT score puts me a bit above the 82nd percentile (1800, i got an 1860), which I believe would be below an equivalent of 130.

Anytime I've asked professionals about IQ they say that you IQ always stays the same, yet everytime I take an IQ test my score increases. Originally I was 110 (2nd grade), then 113 (7th grade), then 118 (11th grade). It has been 5 years since I have taken one. Maybe if I take enough of them I'll reach 130.
