    I've just made an IQ test and was curious to see how fellow mac users range. Something tells me we are quite more intelligent than the average PC user.:p

    BTW, this psychometric exams are not of my liking. The IQ part might be quite precise, but the other exams they make about your personality are BS. How could they say so much about me from just 3-4 hours of test is beyond me.

    You're bound to enrage some psychologist with this thread, but hey, I'll bite.

    I don't really consider the relative metric to be accurate however, and the titles for the deviations are a bit... optimistic, if I may say so myself.

    I tested above average when I was a kid back in the 60's. Is it possible for your IQ to diminish in your later years?

    I kind of take offense to the wording you chose for your poll results:

    "Very Superior 130+", and "Superior 120- 129 " Maybe above average is a better term. Because I'd like to know what do you mean by superior? Superior to what or who exactly?

    Your IQ score is just a number, whether or not IQ tests are an accurate measure of intelligence is open to debate.

    Read this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligence_quotient

    Yes it can depending on different factors.

    The Board of Education tested me a couple years back. In Grade 2, they'd diagnosed me with a learning disability, because I was always a bit "different". My teachers from Grade 3 on were all fairly positive this was inaccurate. When they retested me back a couple years ago, they gave me an IQ test, and found out, that rather than a learning disability, I was considered "gifted" by the board, and my IQ was stated by the report to be between 139 and 143, if I remember correctly.

    From what I have read, your IQ do may decrease with age. Tho, Im guessing at your 50's-60's and with good health you shouldn't be having any problems with this.

    Those are what they give you when you take the IQ exam, not my wording.

    In my case they didn't gave me a specific number. They just told me I had a "High Average" IQ.

    And well, superior means that you are superior to the average IQ score. It's not judging your person, simply your IQ score.

    2.2% of people score from 130+
    6.7% score 120-129
    16.1 score 110-119
    50% score 90-109
    16.1% score 80-89
    6.7% score 70-79
    2.2% score below 70

    I tested 138 in middle school. I haven't had it done since. I didn't know that it was very superior. It's actually pretty average among my friends.

    Mind you, it's not a constant thing. As you grow into a tired old man. Besides illness, your mind goes slowly. You begin to doubt yourself and your ego suffers because of this. This continues until you have the IQ of a harvest field mouse. Then you die.

    Something to consider :D

    No offense taken.:)

    I searched in Google. Here are several pages. There seems to be some different scales of the IQ Score. The one I posted is the one they gave me at my test.







    About the "not constant thing", I did read that the IQ can vary as much as 15 points depending in your state at the moment of the test.

    This is the internet, everyone's a rich genius that's hung like a horse ;)

    For the record, my IQ can't be measured by conventional means. Nor can my wealth. Or my penis

    My IQ is somewhere north of 140. It is not possible to get a good read on mine because of my delexia but they can find find out that is going to be north of some number and it was 140 over 20 years ago and it is safe to say it would fair bit higher now.

    I am uncertain as to what personality tests you are referencing. Having provided a variety of personality assessments in my training, I am unaware of a personality measure that require 3-4 hours of personalty testing. Generally, the most widely used personality measures take the "average" person 1.5 hours. It is possible that you are referring to the administration of multiple personality measures, but that would be dependent on the referral question or reason for the evaluation. Although my personal opinions are biased, given that I actively use such measures, the psychometrics (reliability, validity, and other psychometric foundations) are far superior to the tests you may be referencing.

    Furthermore, the probability of scoring 2 standard deviations above the mean or above (130 or higher) on the Weschler Adult Intelligence Scale is around 2.0% and the probability of scoring 3 standard deviations above the mean (145) is less than 0.5%.

    Just some food for thought, not suggesting that anyone is "fudging" their IQ scores or the length of their favorite man part : )

    This poll doesn't cover my IQ level. I don't see "Supra-Genius" anywhere on the options. :D
