Do you know your IQ?

IQ is a measure of pure intellectual capability. In most tests the average IQ is around 100. Below 70 is considered retarded, below 90 is slow, above 110 is above average and above 130 is considered gifted. My IQ has been estimated to be between 125 and 135. This does not mean that I am automatically a genius, because I am still naïve about some things, but it means that I have the potential to be extremely smart ( not genius level which is usually 140 and above, and I am a bit lazy about putting this to use).

  • Trusting anyone on IQ online is a bit sketchy. Especially given how many fake and poorly designed tests there are.

    I know that mine is high enough that I could tarnish the genius label if I wanted to but in reality you can significantly better your performances on an IQ test rather easily.
    One very important and often overlooked difference between people with impressive and mediocre scores are whether or not they committed any time to learning how to score well on IQ tests.
    In my case I had to commit significant effort to learning to look for the easiest pattern. Most of my errors when it comes to IQ tests have been due to finding more than one applicable solution to the problem. Learning what other people consider the easiest/most direction solution is always tricky.

  • Most people with an IQ above 70 know better than to use the word "retarded" to describe someone's mental acumen.

    • The scientific community uses the term "mental retardation" to describe the acuity such people. It is not meant to be an insult, but society has warped it so that it is an insult. I'm not using it as an insult here

    • Show All
    • If you wish to label IQ levels, you won't find any modern tests using the "r"word.
      Sanford Binet, Cattell, Differentisl Ability Scales, California Test of Mental Maturity, etc. use terminology more like
      lyiq.psicollective.com/.../IQ-Test-Scale.png

    • Because of social pressure due to the use of it as an insult. Many professionals still use the term. Again it is not being used as an insult in this sense. It is from the Latin retardare meaning slow. I would never walk up to someone and call them a retard, but in the context I might say they have mental retardation but not to degrade them.

  • 6 months ago it was 146 but I don't think IQ means much

    • That is an opinion that is shared by quite a few people. I generally say that there is a basis for is, but I'm not one that holds it up high as a base for everything like some people do

    • I believe that it have some significance, but not as much as people put on it since there's different ways to be smart/intelligent

  • Probably average most likely.

  • no. and i wouldn't want to know, because knowing might limit my potential for learning because I might get a big head about it. I would rather just keep my ambition.

  • 144. But it's literally 20 years since I took the test.. My parents had me tested, because they claimed I did things children shouldn't. Though, I believe that IQ is more a measure of how quickly one learns, and adapts, rather than how smart you are.

    • You understand it completely. That's why I said it's a measure of capability and not how smart you are

  • There's tons of stupid buzzfeed/facebook-esque online tests that give you high scores lol its like wow I'm Elon Musk/Bill Gates-tier LOL YEAH RIGHT I WISH.

    • If only those were true haha. There are plenty of real ones out there though. Mine was given to me when I was in school

    • Haha ya fr. I've never had mine professionally assessed, but based on my academic performance I'm perhaps slightly above average. Definitely not significantly above average, just slightly if anything.

  • It's just your IQ that day. It's not a set thing.

    Anyway, I've never taken an official IQ test. I think I could for free at my uni but I'm too introverted to go over to the counseling center and ask.

  • I'm sure some people will troll, but I took one my senior year that was supervised, it was a 25$ fee but I kind of wanted to see where I stood. I've gone to a college prep school most of middle school and high school career, I scored a 132...

    Which is funny, because I'm not entirely smart... Don't get me wrong, I can pull good grades, but math is down the drain. I think it's more a test of logical reasoning rather than anything else like emotional and creativity IQ. Obviously that stuff isn't implemented, this is only one side of the spectrum people.

    • You have the idea of it down. It is logic based. I'm sure there are creativity equivalents to IQ tests out there (which I would probably score low on)

  • the average internet persons iq is between 120 and 130. according to the average internet person xD

  • No because the IQ test is incredibly inaccurate, especially with older people as its initial purpose was suppose to be a projection of childrens abilities not current. The older you got the more inaccurate it became and thats before you actually get into the nitty gritty on why its so horribly inaccurate.

    • There are many places. If you are out of secondary school (based on your age I can safely assume that you are), you have to pay for them. They generally run about $10

    • Make sure that it is a test that is verified though, you don't want to waste your money on a fake test

  • mine was 133 based on the danish test site, but i haven't tried the official test yet.

    People love to believe that theirs is 140+, but thats just bullshit.

    • Knowledge shouldn't affect your score. If it is a real IQ test, it is based on logic

    • Well I hope I haven't lost a few points over the years , lol but yeah it should stay the same since I still think the same logically
