Ok, I admit it - low man on the totem pole here: 111
Um, I just posted above that I scored an 82! Guess math is not your strong suit, is it bud? ;)
I seriously question the accuracy of these tests, considering the large number of "genius" scores earned by people on this board. Statistically, only 5% of the population should score over 130. 100 is supposed to be average.
I have no doubt that the average intelligence of HTF members is significantly higher than the population as a whole, but I find it hard to believe we have so many "geniuses" among us!

Michael Nelson, in 20, if you read it (for us with IQ over 130) it's easy to understand. :D

I'd probably be insulted if I weren't so dumb. :)
SteveA:
Geez, I can't even get the low score. I am destined to mediocrity, I guess. Average is as average does... ;)

Another one who got 161.
And that in no way comes close to a real IQ test. I've taken a real IQ test and they suck. :)

I scored 158, though I didn't get question 21:

'By removing two letters from the word "planets", a word that is the opposite of "uproot" can be formed'.

What does "uproot" mean, and what is its opposite?


I liked the milleniun question (question 31), as I've argued about that quiet a few times.

I scored a 158 as well.

In response to question 21

Uproot means to dig up....the opposite is "plant"

If any of you fancy doing another IQ test, the BBC did a nationwide IQ test last night. You can find the details of this (and the test itself) here.

geesh, I scored 130 on the quick test, but that UK one is way too much for me to put up with. It must be designed to weed out the IQ posers or something.

I got 111. Those things are always weighted to the people who know math...which is not my best subject.
