    You beat me Christopher. I got a 159. This has to be bogus. [​IMG]
    The syllogisms with the made up words were giving me fits. LOL
    My pattern recognition score is 88 - What is this?

    It's not a proper IQ test, though.

    Congratulations! Your general IQ score is 118.

    A person whose IQ score falls in the range of 111-128 is considered to be "above average intelligence".

    I may be above average but thus far I'm the weakest link...

    Well, mine came out as 141. On standardised tests I usually get between 155 and 161, depending on the type of test.

    Incidentally, Dave, there is usually scaling according to age on IQ tests. As you get older, *in general* a person's raw score (i.e. the number of questions you got right) declines. However, IQ ('intelligence quotient') is not, contrary to popular belief, how well you stand relative to the total population, but how well you do relative to your age group. Therefore, different age groups have different norms and distributions.

    I got a 82. Does that mean I'm, like, stupid or something? Well, stupid-is-as-stupid - uh, whatever!

    I got a 133. I then tried again by clicking random answers as quickly as possible and got a 122.

    128, I agree that this isn't a proper IQ test. Although when I took them in 7-9th my score was in the 130's.

    Ok, I admit it - low man on the totem pole here: 111.

    I should point out, however, that at least two of the questions are ambiguous. Any answer to either one is impossible to give due to a lack of information.



    In 20 they don't specify which order in which to count the digits (i.e.,does the top thumb or the overlapped thumb get counted first?)

    In 28 they do not state the length of each of the six toothpicks (i.e., are they all the same length?)
