My IQ is the same as everyone else's. That is it's an inaugurate measurement of a certain type of something that has never been defined.
Other than that, I've never had an IQ test that I know of.

I've never taken a legitimate IQ test that I'm aware of, so I don't know what mine would be.
It is stunning to me the heightened level of brilliance that the internet seems to attract. Any time I've seen or discussed IQ levels on the internet the average seems to be well into the 130s, which, if my bell curve chart interpreting skills are on point, represents the 99th percentile of IQ scores.

I've never taken one but figure I'm about average, which is 100. I was a 4.0 student always but didn't take difficult courses. I put great importance on grades and the courses in non-secular education towards the goal of being an elementary non-secular school teacher aren't that difficult.
Given the claimed IQs compared to the messages highly suggests that the IQ test aren't accurate.
I also suspect that people who have or see themselves as having very high IQs might have social skills and compatibility problems. A person believing s/he has superior intelligence probably isn't healthy and might not be a very intelligent self perspective. I don't think I've ever posted a message on the Internet or ever told anyone that I am smarter than s/he is.
If I ever did test and it was at a higher than average IQ I wouldn't tell anyone. I'm at least smart enough to know that.
1. 100 isn't average for a woman of your race and socioeconomic status.
2. A lot of the people on this thread have taken some sort of on-line pop quiz and mistakenly think that the score it gave them (generally around 160-190) is some sort of accurate reflection of their IQ.
Actual IQ tests aren't routinely administered to the general populace; if you've had one, it's probably because you've been 1. incarcerated, 2. in the military, 3. under psychiatric care, or 4. a voluntary participant in some sort of research study.
I used to think they gave them in college, but I've known a lot of college graduates who have never had one.
