    Oh sorry, thought you were asking about intellectual masturbation.

    100 is average in countries where true IQ tests are held. In the country that I live in the average is 107, and is, according to a study done in most of the west-european countries, highest in all of Europe. Some countries like Belgium have average IQ's below 100. I did some American IQ tests and they gave me about 30-40 more IQ points than Dutch IQ tests do (and English isn't even my first language). Also, I tried randomly filling in IQ tests from both countries. Most American IQ tests still give me 100 or around 100 while our IQ tests give me 70-80.

    I still suggest IQ tests are flawed in one sense, they usually use a time control over your answers which changes your IQ level. As a number of people have said, if you do IQ tests over and over again, you'll get faster and more accurate answers, but it doesn't neccessarily mean you are any more intelligent.

    In all it just suggests you can increase your IQ result with training. If you don't usually do mathematical problems and train to do so, your IQ will go up, even if it took you 3 years to get to terms with certain equations.

    The only time IQ tests are important is when they are termed "Aptitude Tests" and can occur when trying to enroll yourself in a particular position in the military, civil services or courses at colleges and universities.

    I took my ASVAB a few years ago to get into the Army(BIG MISTAKE), and I scored a 91. The highest you can get is 99, and they gave us 6 hours to finish, and I completed mine in a hour and a half. That was the only thing that an IQ test ever did for me, as I score upwards of 150 on regular IQ tests. One thing they don't test though, is COMMON SENSE.

    Yeah, I took an online one that was almost all algebra and logic. I'm fairly sure I got almost all the questions right, which means it wasn't testing much 'intelligence', just 'book learning'

    Not really. I know people who have an IQ much higher than that.

    According to Wikipedia you're gifted, and only a very small part of the world population has an IQ higher than/like you. 100 is always the average IQ: if it isn't, IQ tests will simply have to be changed so that it is the average IQ. Many people here are probably lieing. Geniuses simply don't brag about their IQs. Geniuses make fun of IQ.

    The only valid IQ tests online are IQTest.dk and International High IQ Society: the rest (at the very least, most of them) usually inflate scores by up to a standard deviation, which is a shitload if you know anything about psychometrics. Basically, they want to sell 'profiles'.

    For what it's worth, I regularly score over two deviations.
