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

    I think the intellegence-rage is classified as follows (approx.):

    90-100--Mentally handicapped

    101-115--average

    116-120--High(ly) average

    121-125--Very High(ly) average

    126-130--Superior

    131-145(?)--Highly Superior

    146-160--Very highly Superior

    161+--Genius

    guy you do know that the average IQ in the UK is 100. that means that you are saying tha most people are clever, but mentally hanicappe (lol) or they are average *(which is true)
    i think you need to modify that view a little...

    Um.............................I'm only 16

    My "chart" is not perfectly accurate, but I do know for fact that 99 is considered leagaly mentaly-handicapped. 100 is not, but it isn't real high, either.......

    "Average" is more of the official term. It really doesn't mean (although it may at times) "about normal with everyone else".

    Most people end up between the 105-120 range, which makes me question the unusally high number of folks who claimed (in the thread) to get 137+.........I'd like to see them post (as an attachment) a screenshot of the page displaying their score, like this:

    Hehe, I just took it a second time, just clicked on answers at random. Took me 10s to take the whole test and the resulting IQ is 100. Perhaps all those average guys just did it the same way.

    Why should it do me any good? IQ tests are pretty useless to start with. I did it just for fun.

    Iq tests are rediculous. Whatever IQ measures its not the limiting factor in anything. Its probably just measures the speed at which the brain undoes faulty relations or makes new ones and accesses memory. All of which can be boosted by nutrition, drugs and are different at different times of day... Not to mention that people can learn faster just by learning the stregnths and weaknesses of the mind so that they don't make faulty relations in the first place.

    Ill bet the difference in IQ between different races is simply an issue of motivation. If african americans had stronger emotions they wouldn't need to invent relativity theory to have fun, they would just pop in a record or rap or dance or something. Whereas someone with weaker emotional motivators would try to go to much greater lengths, trying to differentiate themselves from everyone else in order to gain enough respect to be happy. I beleive I heard there was some kind of correlation between intelligence and fertility with races that are more intelligent being less fertile. Perhaps there is some kind of connection between fertillity and strength of emotions. Just a theory though.

    Oh how I hate to ruin the party, but any IQ test taken on the internet is not very close to accurate, and more often than not it will give you a higher score than one adminstered by and in front of a psychologist. How fast someone answers a question and how they go about solving it is integral in determining their IQ. Equally, the number itself is only evaluated by the deviation from the mean number of correct answers when taking an internet test, thus to give one person a 134 and another 135 is nearly impossible due to the small number of questions.

    In short, the internet IQ is a generous estimate at the very best.

    This IQ test is very poor. It doesn't necesarily test your ability to think or your ability to comprehend complex problems. Many of the questions there are based on your knowledge of geography, some based on famous expressions while others are based one 9th or 10th grade math. This IQ test could be passed by with flying colors by a fairly smart college graduate, yet will fail a true genius who hasn't received a good education.

    I never take tests because they will never be able to show creativity,resourcesfulness, common sense, inquesitivness, wisdom, love or other things that make a human smart. These tests only show a small fraction of what a human has memorized but not really learned.

    I think it's above average. Don't take the tests too seriously though, as CosmicTraveler mentioned these tests are fallible. Even administered tests don't tell the whole story.

    Here's another site with several tests. Some of these really test your visuospacial skills and are really challenging. http://www.highiqsociety.org/flash/nonmembers/iqtests.htm
