Do you believe that IQ tests are an accurate measurement of intelligence?

    The Ultimate IQ Test

    Ever wondered what your IQ is? Take the IQ test. It's free, but you do have to register (email address & a name(I just typed a bunch of*&@!#%!@, except for one of my many email addresses)). I hate spam!

    This test is supposed to be one of the most thorough IQ tests on the web. <img src="http://www.coreyburton.com/images/dis_tv_ludwig.gif">

    I scored pretty decently, with an IQ of 133. Maybe I would have done better, but I had only 1/2 an hour at lunchtime to do the test.

    127 is quite good




    Actually, 127 is quite good.

    I remember reading somewhere that 100 is considered to be average intelligence, while 140 is considered to be genious.

    Yes Aussie. Okay, I'll be the one to point it out.

    Almost every single one of the internet IQ tests gives EVERY single person a huge score. Why? They're easy. Example - one test gave four members on the board over 180.

    Here's a test if you want to see a relatively accurate (in my opinion) one:

    You must select the Ultimate IQ Test - otherwise your score is not actually an IQ.

    That one has a lot more pattern recognition, something I always have trouble with, thats tougher than the first I think.

    Watch everyone score higher than the average in this forum, practically EVERYONE.

    IQ doesn't mean much. Just as long as you are over the norm. The rest is:

    • Potential
    • Perspiration
    • Realization/attitude
    • Innovativeness/creativity
    • Imagination

    IQ and SAT mean something, but not much, our experiences shape us, make us intelligent, not doing good on some little 2 hour test.

    Yup. Sciforums has seen many IQ tests come along. I think I've seen one person say they got within even the higher end of teh average zone. A lot of the tests produced multiple people with IQs above 170.

    Tyler ...

    Thanks ... Sixty bucks lighter and another board to visit.

    Makes me wonder now what my IQ was back in '58. Oh well.

    Wondering too how they'll stack up against Sciforums.

    Take care

    I think this one is way too easy. Someone has posted this already actually. I only got 132 last time when I did it quickly and did everything on my head. The second time I write everything down on a piece of paper, draw pictures, and took my time, I got 156.

    That's impossible to have so many "genuises" here.

    Every single forum I have visited had people scoring over the average IQ's, all genuises

    Amazing eh? Either the test(s) are shit or people love to lie.

    So what about IQ? Chosen is right. What really matters is your burning desire to excel. The rage and hunger and motivation for victory. The need to win.

    That gets people farther than any IQ. You only need enough IQ to not be retarded (and even if you are retarded, you will still get somewhere).

    Unless we learn more about the functions of the brain, we will not be able to accurately measure intelligence. The brain seems to be far more complex than the score some random test pastes to it. Ever heard of idiot savants? Would you consider them stupid, just because of IQ? What about their outstanding, extraordinary abilities? And, people with low IQ but with good artistic abilities should be considered intelligent.

    Exactly! It's about time that people realize paper and pencil are not the only way to demonstrate intelligence; it's just that this method has been so ingrained into us as a left-brain society. Statistics show that most of the teens that drop out of school are highly intelligent, but cannot conform to the structure. Therefore, they appear dumber, so they lose the will to continue their education. It's sad, really, letting our creative population getting sucked down the drain like that.
