Apparently this test is much more accurate then most garbage tests online
I used to score around 100-102-105 back when I already had significant knowledge of IQ testing in general and this test in particular.
No, my life is not 'fine regardless of this score'. It is shit, and I am making it shit for everyone I come into contact with. Because of it.
>Do the first 20 questions
>35 minutes left
I wondered if it was just a keep going until time runs out deal, and since I didn't want to waste much more time on it I just chose the second option until it said the test was completed.
Still got 106. These tests are entirely bullshit.
>Still got 106. These tests are entirely bullshit.
Contrary to a novice misconception, intelligent people declare IQ tests to be bullshit much more often than stupid people -- fear of accepting responsibility for one's intelligence is stronger than any possible sour grapes.
Sat in my car smoking a cig, thinkn about how to make moves on a qt in my bio class, and listening to Modeselektor, all while taking this bullshit test > I scored a 138
> Kek @ ppl who were actually stressn over this
So long as I'm not retarded, I can't complain.
>They're already seen as virtually useless.
Absolutely. Certainly. Their many detractors can be detected by such arguments as 'IQ is not everything', 'I know a person who...', 'you can study for a test', 'motivation trumps intelligence', 'you can't define intelligence', and 'we still don't know what intelligence is'.
Yeah, and most people who state this are those who have taken the test and had a moderately high score, because it's not exactly a challenge.
I mean look at the test posted, it's just a few basic puzzles with logic.
It'd be insulting to see them on the back of a happy meal.
It'd be borderline impossible for anyone seriously taking the test to get a low score, even the clinically retarded could do it.
In other words, 'book smarts' is a pitiful (although highly successful) politically motivated attempt to obscure g's importance by putting it in the company of other, narrow abilities which they in reality depend on.
I got a 115. Because IQ is declared to be a normally distributed random variable X with mean 100 standard deviation 15, I am one standard deviation above the mean.
So... integrating 100/sqrt(2*pi)e^(-x^2/2) with respect to x from -infinity to 1 yields approximately 84.13.
So my IQ is higher than 84.13% of the population.
>tfw when more than half the people on earth are stupider than you
hey guys, naval chemical engineer from this morning's IQ /smartandlazy/ thread.
i thought i was 89, but im 93? i make 108k a year from working on navy carrier engines.
life is good ya know?
Whether you recognize a 2D or 3D shape or a mathematical pattern or a physical relationship or a manmade concept or a human behaviour, it is the same thing: your brain clicking.
Very few people realize the implications of this.
>tfw only 126
b-but my height starts with 5, I need some reason to live....
I got 91. I've never done well on IQ tests, but I don't think it's ever gotten in the way of my life. I'm currently one of the top students in my med school class, and I scored 95th percentile on my MCAT, so a low IQ doesn't interfere with testing at least.
Outside of a disability affecting either the very procedure of test-taking or a subscale of a flawedly one-sided (e.g., spatial or verbal) test, it is not possible for a person with IQ 91 to succeed at a medical school. If you do, then it is your success that IS your test, meaning you HAVE 120+.
Well googling my IQ tells me it's average, and it's certainly possible to succeed in medical school with average intelligence. It just takes using the right study techniques (mnemonics, spaced repetition, nailing down concepts, question banks) and having the drive to do it.
But seriously, the stuff on an IQ test doesn't come up on my tests. Spatial reasoning and pattern recognition isn't really needed at an advanced level.
I said at an advanced level. I need to be able to recognize a lot of things, but it's simple stuff.
Just a quick search and I came up with this
Anesthesiologists had an average IQ of 98, not that much higher than me.
I don't know why you're so surprised, they're not stupid or anything, just average. As long as you're not actually retarded, you're certainly capable of learning what goes into practicing medicine.
anyone know a standardized method of doing these? testing intelligence is such a flawed concept, some people are better runners because they train more or genes, some people recognize patterns easier because their head is wired that way or they have a strategy to solve them
maybe im talking alot of shit and theres papers out there correlating pattern solving and intelligence but it seems very unlikely to me
but back to the standardized methods i just find doing the patterns fun i dont really care about the iq part, i just want a way to solve very complex ones- are some people just flat out smarter and see the pattern with no strategy and minimal thought?
>The intelligence scores were lower than anticipated for IQ in the medical profession. This is likely to be a reflection of the way in which intelligence was tested, and the scores derived from the rather difficult Mensa brain test may not be directly comparable to IQ scores.
This. I was honestly expecting that 100 was redefined to refer to the mean of that particular study. Either way, something is fishy there.
They didn't calibrate it to a new median. They just used a shorter version of the full mensa test, which they admit may not be fully accurate (just like this thread's IQ test isn't).
I don't think the scores would be that different if they took the full test.
>The test yielded scores in a similar format to a formal IQ test, designed to have a median value of 100 and a standard deviation of 15.
Are you sure they don't mean median [of the sample]?
Because when you compare those IQ figures to "IQ by profession" numbers on other websites, you see how wildly low both of those estimates seem. It's absurd to think that anesthesiologists (one of the highest paid professions) have the same IQ as butchers and farmers.
Additionally, that study used a small sample of ~40 employees from 3 hospitals, and didn't even use a real IQ test. It's hard for me to accept it as credible when it doesn't seem to match every other piece of evidence looking at IQ by occupation.
>testing intelligence is such a flawed concept, some people are better runners because they train more or genes, some people recognize patterns easier because their head is wired that way or they have a strategy to solve them
This fallacy is so glaring it is genuinely puzzling. And everyone displays it.
How can you not see that your 'flawedness' is absolutely arbitrary? 'There are incongruous exceptions such as smart people failing to amount to much, therefore testing is flawed.' It's ridiculous. Where would you fancy a testing stops being 'flawed'? At what arbitrary cut-off of validity? That's nonsense. What matter is, again and again, there is literally no factor that predicts success more than IQ.
>I don't think the scores would be that different
Weasel words are fun, aren't they? 'That.' 'They wouldn't be *that* different.' It's like saying 'IQ doesn't matter *that* much'. Equivocation. You're consciously using an undefined and undefinable word like 'much', so that you can never be falsified (because every relationship can be construed as 'not mattering that much'), while safely connoting the insignificance of IQ that it is your agenda for other people to feel.
Kudos for having done your reading.
So three of those links lead back to a single paper where the graph uses data from the early 1990s. Not that old data is bad, but I'm just saying you've only provided a single contradictory source to mine. The other blog link "estimates" IQ based on median-income. I'm not sure why you thought that was relevant.
I don't put that much (o) thought into using the word much, it's just typing as I think. Anyways a full mensa test vs an abbreviated mensa test just doesn't strike me as something that will heavily impact the results. I'm not saying that scientifically, just as my feeling about the limitation.
Besides, my main point was that I'm doing well in school with my IQ. I'm not studying math or physics here.
i made this while getting a blowjob from my big titted side bitch and while high on drugz. i was also on a phone call with my wall street advisors and they distracted me when they said i earned more than a million dollars today.
Well I wouldn't want to get medical assistance from someone like you then. Because I know that even if someone magically displays IQ-defying motivation to cram the material, there is no way to make them notice and reason well in real time. Effort is meaningless there.
what? i can barely get through this thing
every time I do this I just get fucking sick of it by the 10th question or so
I actually did finish it once and I got around 110. Other than that I've never finished it and it just annoys me to do. The puzzles get much harder after a while too, so it requires more brainpower for me to do it.
If it makes you feel any better, we do get assessed often in real time. Written tests are only a portion of the assessments. Besides that, I'm usually done writing the written tests before most of the class.
Idk why everyone's on your case. I've seen my cousin's medical coursework and it looks easier than the college classes I'm taking. It's wrote memorization that almost anyone could do with a little science background.
More handwaving. 'Oh, well, yes, not everyone maybe, if you insist, but *almost* everyone. Happy now? Can we stop pressing the matter of availability of achievement? This is not a productive subject. Nothing good could ever come from delineating precisely the role of IQ in success. Let it go, okay?'
Thanks. The medicine is hard meme only exists because of the competition around getting accepted. The graduation rate at my school is 97%, and people usually drop out from mental/career-choice issues, not academic ones. It's easier than my undergrad in a lot of ways.
112. A Mensa home test I took a while ago approximated my IQ at 127 - 129, but it included more sections than just visual pattern recognition. I'm a little surprised I didn't do worse on this one.
I got 106 which is lower than I thought I would get. Then again, I'm not sure what IQ I thought I was. The whole quiz just seems like pattern recognition to me. Man, I really tried my best and to only get 106 is a bummer.
I think this is one of the better IQ tests on the internet in terms of questions, but at the same time, the fact that the highest score it gives out is a 140 ( >>25610035) makes me think that the scores it gives out are lower than your true score.
Posted this in the last thread too. Basically, I'm a retarded NEET loser on disability because of severe mental health issues. I am, however, writing a book. Regardless of what my IQ is, I'm still basically retarded.
Fact it says 'Above 145' means, if it's accurate, all lower scores are correct and not 'lower than your true score'. As it has a delimiter for 145+. Therefore, only people who score 'Above 145' would be getting an inaccurate result.
I mean, if my literature doesn't sell well I'll probably end up on the streets in the future or be incapable of paying for Internet unless I forego food. Although, I am also working on a programming side-project. For now though, legally disabled NEET in housing commission.
This is where you want to be. Not an autistic that can't make friends, but someone who's more intelligent than people around him.
Who else /canthandletheslightestbitofpressure/ here?
>that clock ticking away
How about you fucking know words. Remember music. How about you have fucking memories from your life.
I hate people who spit and tread on what I would literally give my right arm for because they have no idea what it grants.
>'B-but I have no friends! This means IQ is worthless!'
I just want less and less to educate people. Educating them on how they insult me every time they call themselves retarded is... vain.
And it's not even that.
Do you think there are no people whom I want to make happier and more knowledgable? You of course are too ignorant to know that I need IQ for that. I will never teach anyone anything, show something, explain, help prevent, help solve.
'But it is meaningless!'
'A transplant? What the fuck do you need that organ for? I have it and my life is a wreck. Do you seriously think that it is enough for being happy? Having it didn't make me a successful person. A functioning heart/lungs/whatever are worthless, utterly worthless, if you don't try your best. I honestly don't get why you put so much importance on it. Just look at me -- I'm healthy and I'm miserable. Honestly health is seriously overrated. You can be healthy all you want, but if you don't use it, then it is meaningless. You could use some perspective instead of getting hanged up on things that don't matter. Motivation trumps health any time. Stop buying into the health meme, dude.'
It's a lot simpler than you think it is. Look for the piece that completes the pattern. Don't look at it top down, vertically, use process of elimination, ect. You ONLY want to look at it from left to right and figure out what the pattern is. It's usually simple addition , subtraction, or both combined.
Don't overthink it.
and explain this one
This one is easy.
Inside - outside = result
1 inside + 1 inside = 2 inside
1 inside - 3 outside = 2 outside
2 inside - 2 outside = 0 - blank
Pattern is horizontal
One big bar of one color, one small bar of one color, don't mind the orientation.
So the big bar must be middle gray, the small bar must be black IIRC.
I usually get 138.
so I'm on par with a parrot, great
But seriously, I am not decrying the value of capabilities, it's the correlation of general mental capabilities to the results of tests such as this that I'm saying is bunk.
What I hate about this kind of test is when you find two valid possibilities and then have to figure out which one the test makers want to hear. Only scored 108 because the test didn't do well at motivating me and I just quickly clicked through...
107, thought i'd score higher desu. never taken one of these before
Mfw I'm >>25612896. Okay, maybe only looking at it horizontally along with not using the process of elimination and not looking at it diagonally or vertically was a poor choice.
The last IQ test I took online it was all add/subtraction/both and finished it in like 5 mins.
seems about right
I consider myself above average but in my CS class at uni I am nowhere near as intelligent as a lot of my peers
what's your secret? do you take a lot of these over and over again, or are you really that good at pattern recognition?
I scored 17 (average of 10) on the matrix reasoning portion of the real WAIS IQ test (ie: 170 - but in the 130 range for my overall average), but only scored 126 on this test.
the answers are as follows:
d f b g a h b e h a c f b d h e f c e d g a b h b a h g e a d e g g c f h f b
decompiling .swf files is easy and the creators of this test are morons for performing client-side validation
have a nice day robots
I don't feel like taking this test, but back when I was in therapy I got tested and I got 127
>tfw almost genius but still not
i used to think i was smart but lazy
>mfw i once actually tested how smart i really am
>dumb af apparently
At the end of my Engeneering course i'll test again to see if I got more retarded
I got 91. I literally have a PhD in chemistry, though, so I guess I did pretty good in life for someone of my IQ.
Still unemployed. Don't fall for the STEM meme, kids. After over 400 job applications since I've graduated I'm slowly losing all hope.
Jobless neet here who has never done anything useful in their life
What good is the ability to notice patterns if I'm a useless piece of shit.
Lets try something else. I scored a 29 on my ACT, what did you robots get?
That exactly what I wanted to write.
Since Im poor, broke, unemployed, gfless, friendless etc, having IQ of 135 is totally useless.
I dont see how solving circles is useful in life in any way.This is just a retarded meme.
34 ACT here
doesn't seem like 4 more IQ points translates to 5 more ACT points though
Did you study for it?
I literally haven't studied a day in my life.
Also I got frustrated near the final 3 questions or so and couldn't make sense of them so I kind of just used process of elimination to make a guess. I still had a good 25 minutes to actually figure it out.
nope, didn't study a word
i rarely study in general, i learn by doing, reading doesn't help me at all
that's why i've always struggled with classes that are nothing but reading with no application, or subjects that are just pure knowledge, and not skills, like history or literature
Guise, these tests matter as much as yard sticks. Yard sticks of questionable craft and provenance.
And so your "IQ" is better thought of as something like height. Not every tall guy has to be an NBA all-star. Maybe you help people take things down from high shelves sometimes. Maybe you're just tall.
Meanwhile avg. is not "manlet," but rather perfectly good and dandy. Even short people can live well. Look at Peter Dinklage.
Don't let unreasonable expectations and silly metrics shit all over your present existence, pals.
I was too lazy to do the last ones so I had like 5 random answers.
Could be worse.
I didn't finish or i accidentally clicked finish or time ran out idk. But i got a 104 and i only answered 25 questions? I dont know how to calculate if i got them all right.
You all realize that they can't calculate your IQ without your age, right?
This is literally complete shit.
so... clinical reasoning and clinically diagnosing diseases based on symptoms patients are reporting/displaying is not pattern recognition
Also, a psychiatrist I used to see for years was convinced I was the smartest person he's ever seen, and thought the IQ result meant nothing, but since then I've failed literally everything I've tried and I can't solve easy problems and I feel like shit because I can't let go of the idea that, maybe, possibly, I might not be as stupid as I feel I am, even though literally everything but one guy's opinion point to the contrary.
just kill me
Am I too dumb for my STEM degree?
