I recently took one of these on-line IQ tests. It was probably 20 pages long. I scored 138.

This one is much shorter. In fact, I suspect they factor time into the final score somehow because they make a big deal at the beginning about how it's designed for speed, etc.

Scored 159.

I got a 169, but I got interrupted by a phone call, so if this thing is timed, my score should be higher.

I know you're all jealous of my big sexy brain.

As a general rule, I don't think these tests measure anything besides how good you are at these little word puzzles. That's certainly a measure of intelligence, but it's not the only measure of intelligence.

I got a 132, which I was fine with untill I read the last two scores posted before mine. Now I feel like Forest Gump.

I think you're right. I took it a second time answering all the questions the same and went much faster. My score was a 162, quite a bit higher than my score before.

I have never placed much faith in these on-line IQ test. Most seem to inflate the score - probably in order to sell whatever product they are selling...

I did the Christmas tree method and scored 116.

I don't think these test are accurate, so if you do well or poorly---it doesn't matter much.


For the record, I got 164 (which I'd bet ain't right)

Some of these fake IQ tests are challenging, but that one's just silly. It's clearly there for no other purpose than to make people feel good about themselves and possibly waste money on whatever "service" they're providing.

Btw, if you just choose TRUE for everyone quickly enough your IQ can be 118!

This test is just supposed to be for some fun entertainment....

No need to get all stiff about it.

I know not to take it seriously...

My actual IQ and my percieved IQ are inversely proportional to the quantity of inebrients I have injested.

The more I drink, the stupider I get, but the smarter I feel.

I don't feel like taking this one, but I took the one emode used to have on their site and I think I scored a 136. I think they claimed theirs was "certified."

Emode is now tickle.com -- it was their "classic iq test"

I think being able to choose an answer and click on the 'Done' button should indicate at least a 75 or 80 IQ.
