    did you do this one before? I usually can get about 135 but this one was f***ing difficult.

    mine is 132, I think all the IQ test I did online all yield around 130+. How accurate are these tests?

    (wait... why am I doing this test in the middle of the work day.... damm, I'm bored.)

    128. Skipped the first set completely because I didn't want to think about it.

    127.

    And to really prove my worth, what does IQ actually stand for!?

    edit. oh sorry, that was with a different and seemingly easier test. This one I got 126 in.

    131, although that's before coffee. Not too shabby :)

    How accurate can this possibly be? It's less than 15 minutes. All IQ tests measure is how well you do on the particular IQ test.

    Greatest Thanks.

    I agree with ITCHERONI. All IQ tests are different, and this one seems very different and very short.

    It's practically impossible to get below a 100 on this test. I guess the measure is in whether you actually give the site your money.

    I guess that makes me as thick as two planks, compared to the other geniuses here. :)

    A genius is 147 or above. If you were clever, you would know that :p :p

    I don't think these tests are very accurate. If it was explained how each question worked, I don't doubt that everyone could be in the top 2%.

    I would class 95% confidence level as pretty accurate.

    I got a 129 on the first 'easy' test, the second one beat me down. Stupid pattern recognition/spatial ordering. Hmphf.

    I've done a couple of "proper" tests and got 135 on both. All the online ones seem to vary widely for me.

    your IQ has no real relevance to your intelligence in my opinion.

    Spatial awareness is a legitimate criterion for IQ tests. Australian aborigines would do very well on this part.
