    IQ Tests?

    Hi,

    Do you believe in IQ Tests? I just took one online and I got a score of 81 which is below average and I feel like a **** and worthless.

    Most of them were related to "Maths" which is probably why I sucked.

    math+reading

    if your good or better at them u will score high

    but the real test is how well u TAKE tests
    some people naturally suck at taking test but are really smart
    some are dumb as rocks but take tests well

    to measure true intelligence i have some suggestions for u
    try learning a new language (both spoken and written)
    if this is easy for you you are SUPER smart

    OR

    if thats 2 hard try

    stopping at green lights and going on red lights
    if this is easy for you i don't know if it makes u SMART
    but would be sure as all heck be FUNNY to watch

    no test can REALLY tell you how intelligent u are
    trying to learn something u did not know before
    this "CAN" tell u how intelligent u are
    a new language is probably the hardest thing to learn
    if you are over 20. if u can do this you are truly in the top
    25% of the most intelligent people in the world
    if u can fluently speak 3 or 4 languages you are in the top 1%

    if you LEARN all the answers to the IQ test you would rate in the top 1% of the worlds smartest people
    but is that a true measure of intelligence or do u just know the answers to that test ?

    .
    PS i score 128 and cant spell jack
    BUT IM great at math and reading
    so you be the judge dose that make me "Very intelligent?"
    I dont think so
    My father was over 140 (Genius) but he drank himself in to bankruptcy and an early grave
    was he smart ?

    In my sociology class, we just covered a summary of a book on IQ tests. It basically said, from years of research, that the numbers people score, are based mainly two things, the time period in which you take the test, and the society you were raised in.

    I see so the test makers own reserve of knowledge has nothing to do with it?
    Patron: I'd like my free lunch please.
    Cafe Manager: Free lunch? Did you read the fine print stating it was an April Fool's joke.
    Patron: I read the same way I listen, I ignore the parts I don't agree with. I'm suing you for false advertising.

    a1yet touched on it.

    I don't want to bore you with the long details. But every year the test changes, and every year, on average, each generation gets a higher score. Now to say each generation is smarter is debatable. But one explanation as to higher test scores is that as time goes on, people are aware of new things.

    Research has been broken up into cultures, and country of origin. Certain cultures do better than others, and people from different countries do better than others.

    This is not to say these people are "smarter", but they have different methods of solving problems.

    The test maker has A LOT to do with the outcome of scores.

    Don't take those too seriously... believe in yourself and don't let an online IQ test bring ya down. We're all intelligent, we just express it in different ways.

    Not just an online IQ test, but ANY IQ test.

    IQ tests don't work at all.
    There's this dutch national yearly IQ test and I always get somewhere between 130-150 so that's a pretty big difference.
