    Arrow And you thought I wasn't clever..... :: The classic IQ test

    Well, I don't really believe that IQ tests are very accurate but for what its worth. I recently took the online test at:

    http://uk.tickle.com/test/iq/start.html

    You must provide a screenshot to prove your worth
    I got IQ level 126, my summary was quite strange -

    You've got a very experiential way of learning and a strong mathematical mind.
    Huh? A mathematical mind.....I don't think so - logical yes, but not mathematical.

    You're able to whittle even the most complex situation down to comprehensible component parts. In short, you have mastered the art and science of precision.
    I normally make problems more complex than they really are! I am a heckler for precision though...

    For you, life is a series of equations. Your brain is naturally predisposed to intense mathematical acuity, and your understanding of numerical problems is unparalleled.
    My maths is average! - I thought so anyway...

    You too, can use numbers to translate aspects of the world around you -- something that doesn't come easily to everyone. Your quick mathematical mind will allow you to communicate a variety of ideas to other people, so don't keep it to yourself.
    I do have a very different way of thinking to many other people, I can't put my finger on it - but I just see different things to other people sometimes.

    The screenshot is as follows:

    PS: My name is not John I just put that for privacy reasons as my results were being shared to other tickle users

    Got 133. They said

    Insightful linguists can take complex concepts and articulate them to just about anyone. You have a gift with words and insight into processes and the way people think. These talents enable you to explain things clearly to people. Helen Keller is a great example of an Insightful Linguist. Blind, deaf and mute, she was still able to put things together in her mind and to understand complex ideas. She could do that because she was able to conceptualise ideas internally. Though she could not literally see, she had the visual and spatial skills necessary to understand patterns on an abstract level. She learned to read, write and ultimately became a writer on issues of social justice.

    Those online IQ tests are bogus, and Tickle's is no better. I'd much rather not discuss IQ, but I got 155 the last time I took that Tickle test -- and my IQ is not that high. I've gotten 185 on some of the other Internet tests.

    i've gotten from 112-182 on online tests. I discount them seriously. I've taken them twice in real life, once in 1st grade (164) and once in 7th grade (162). These were at school... so yeah.

    Edit: I supposedly have a strong memory, and do well with math. (i went and found the scoring sheets)

    Well, not that I don't believe you or anything, but if that indeed is your IQ, you're smarter than I am!

    Your IQ always stays the same. When you are 13 say you have an IQ of 100, when you're 34 your IQ will be around 100...it always stays around the same, doesn't matter about age - so I've been told.

    I think it's because when you're 13 you are marked differently from when your 34....

    Can any one confirm this for me?

    A 10 point difference in either direction between scores is not a big deal, it will remain about the same your entire life.

    I know a guy who is seriously one of the most retarded persons that isn't retarded, not an Epsilon but more like a Delta, and he got a 120 on one of these tests... I'm pretty sure they beef up your score.

    Well, by the very definition of IQ -- intelligence quotient -- it shouldn't change significantly as you age, as it isn't supposed to be dependent on knowledge, but on "raw" intelligence. I haven't taken one lately, but it'd be interesting to see if my score varies at all. Then again, I wouldn't know what to compare it to, as my mom won't tell me exactly what my IQ is.

    I usually get around 173 on IQ tests, however, the whole theory about IQ being linked to intelligence is bogus. Most PHDs and professionals are now thinking that "thinking style" is linked to intelligence - some of the most intelligent people to walk this Earth had mediocre or low IQs. Research the matter.

    On which test(s) did you score a 173?

    If you still believe in e-tests, mainly IQ ones (which you shouldn't), at least take a Mensa IQ test. It's the most reliable. If you can't find their test page...

    I would agree entirely in that IQ tests are not reliable as an indication for "intelligence". Inteliigence is not quantifiable and therefore, not markable.
    However, IQ tests are an indication as to the ability to apply general knowledge and logic to a given problem or situation.
    Inteligence can never be numbered.
    For example, I'm not particularly good at Maths - but fantastic at Chess, i'm great at literature and English but poor at foreign languages.
    Intelligence is just the perception of one human being unto another.

    My favorite measuer is Jeapordy. I can usually answer 75-80% of the questions, assuming they don't involve modern sports & movies.

    Thomas Crapper, your IQ score is 133

    Thomas Crapper, your IQ score is significantly above average. Congratulations! You have a wide range of exceptional skills which are much stronger than those of the average population. You are also skilled at answering the types of questions that are asked in a classic IQ test. The test analyses your strengths and weaknesses based on your mathematical, linguistic, visual-spatial and logical skills. Even though you have high scores in all of those areas, we are able to analyse your results to discover the areas in which you have the strongest abilities.

    Like a meticulous collector, you've fed your brain a unique set of facts and figures over the years. Words, numbers, you've got it all. That's what makes you a Facts Curator.

    Whether or not you intend to absorb every piece of information that comes your way, your mind has certain steel-trap qualities to it. You are a knowledge sponge. You have almost enough words in your head to fill a dictionary, and you're equally adept when it comes to manipulating numbers. You can also detect important patterns in number sequences, and probably remember the mnemonic devices you were taught in your early school years.

    Apparently my IQ is 124 (It was very annoying though to have to register); although I doubt very much whether that is my real IQ. Mainly because I don’t believe these online tests since they differ so much depending on the place you do it at, and let’s just say my gin bottle is half empty – or is it half full?


    Andrew, your IQ score is slightly above the average IQ score. Congratulations! Among your skills, there are certain areas that stand out above the rest. The classic IQ test analyses your strengths and weaknesses based on your mathematical, linguistic, visual-spatial and logical skills. By analysing your answers we can discover the areas in which you have the strongest abilities.

    You are gifted with the natural fluency of a writer and the visual and spatial strengths of an artist. Those skills contribute to your creative and expressive mind.

    Insightful linguists can take complex concepts and articulate them to just about anyone. You have a gift with words and insight into processes and the way people think. These talents enable you to explain things clearly to people. Helen Keller is a great example of an Insightful Linguist. Blind, deaf and mute, she was still able to put things together in her mind and to understand complex ideas. She could do that because she was able to conceptualise ideas internally. Though she could not literally see, she had the visual and spatial skills necessary to understand patterns on an abstract level. She learned to read, write and ultimately became a writer on issues of social justice.

    ( this bit I was curious about! )

    EDIT: lol – I think the gin had a bit too much influence there and I forgot to add what it claims my IQ is. Oh well… here’s to a good night everyone.

    I went ahead and took the test even though I don't trust the quality of basically any online test. I have been officially tested by licensed testers several times in my life (from age 6 and up) and my scores fluctuated based on which style test was used (but of course stayed roughly the same year to year on the same test). I ranged anywhere from as low as 140's, to as high as 190's depending on whose test was used (there are several companies who make official IQ tests).

    I have found that IQ doesn't mean crap really in the practical world. If anything, it's a good indicator of someone who doesn't have common sense (as I have found the higher the IQ, the less common sense the person has, which is something I have had to focus on to overcome over the years personally).

    Your mind's strengths allow you to think ahead of the game -- to imagine or anticipate what should come next in just about any situation. Because you're equally skilled in the numerical and verbal universes of the brain, you can draw from multiple sources of information to come up with great ideas. The timelessness of your vision and the balance between your various skills are what make you a Visionary Philosopher.

    In addition to your strengths in maths and linguistics, you have a knack for matching and anticipating patterns. These skills and your uncanny ability to detect the underlying blueprint of most of life's situations add to your visionary philosopher mind. Two philosophers who share the same combination of skills you possess are Plato and Benedict Spinoza.
