    This test is supposed to be for people whose IQ is beyond Genius level.
    I don't think so. The questions aren't easy, but they aren't fiendishly difficult either.
    There is another test on the site, in which the questions are really easy.
    I would like to see what the people who score IQ 160 plus on these tests would score on a Mensa test.

    We never worked out what 16 was.
    I thought it might be Cortex, but your answer is correct.
    Types of lobes.

    Obviously, ‘spoilers' — I don’t know how to create that fancy button to warn so.

    Here’s what I have:

    1. Klein
    2. compulsive
    3. uxorious
    4. kings
    5. palimpsest
    6. solipsism
    7. Procrustes
    8. Pierian
    9. Potyomkin
    10. basilisk
    11. span
    12. friable
    13. cynosure
    14. brachiate
    15. Kuru… or perhaps CJD?
    16. occipital
    17. cliometics
    18. Morlock
    19.
    20. Olber
    21. anagogic
    22. Paul
    23. genealogy
    24.

    I omitted two because my guesses were obviously incorrect/didn’t want to make a fool out of myself, but left some of the more promising guesses in. There’s [poor] reasoning for each, which I’d be happy to explain if asked.

    None of these were searched up; I’d like to thank excessive reading, crossword puzzles and sheer, “Slumdog Millionaire”-esque, dumb luck for my answers [though they're likely the wrong ones]. If you have the correct list, I’d love to see it. Numbers nineteen and twenty-four are just going to irk me until then.

    Thanks for the challenge!

    Spatial
    What one hears is a change through time, what one sees is a change through space.

    An obelisk is a ceremonial pillar, a symbolic rather than structural architectural feature, so "basilisk" - a functional monster - would be a miss. Perhaps "grotesque"?

    And so forth.

    Genius is as genius does, as Forrest Gump might say. Not a description of a test score.
