    I've yet to see an online IQ test where the average slack-jawed yokel couldn't score 125+

    I was tested by Mensa at the age of 8 or 9 or somewhere around there. 142 "or so" if my mother's memory is correct. They didn't tell ME the results, and urged my mother not to tell me either until I was much older. /shrug

    I've not ever taken one since, online or otherwise.

    If it has been officially measured, tell us.

    If not, then try three or four of the free IQ web sites and report the scores.

    When taking an IQ test, be sure there are NO distractions. Turn off your phone, radio and TV. Make sure nobody is around to disturb you. Then take the test.

    How did you come out?
    I don't think the bolded portion is going to produce any meaningful results.

    My IQ has been tested twice, both times when I was still a minor; it's between 114 and 117, apparently.
    High-ish average-ish.
    They said it was in the "superior" range (but still a far cry from MENSA quality, they failed to add ).

    If those online tests gave people their REAL scores, people wouldn't want to take the test. They'd rather take a test that inflates their ego.

    I can't. This is important.

    That's exciting. My sons are both over 140.
    So far, they're not doing much with it, though.
    Which is fairly unsurprising, considering that we come from a long, long line of what you'd call "bright underachievers".

    Somehow I doubt that 73% of the people on this forum are in the top 3% of the population.

    Well, the whole "IQ test" deal is classist, to some extent; biased in favor of affluent whites (and possibly, of males).
    Your average middle-class white American (the sort, for instance, that might be expected to own a computer and frequent political forums) has a higher median IQ than the gen-pop.
    Research on race and IQ- by William Shockley, Arthur Jensen, Charles Murray, Richard Herrnstein, and others- has shown significant disparities between the median IQ scores of whites and minorities, wealthy and poor... but no significant correlation between race and intelligence.

    I wouldn't be surprised by that at all. I mean, look at what they do in their spare time...these people aren't exactly playing texas hold 'em on yahoo...they're discussing ideas.

    As for mine, the three times it was measured, I came in at 135, 132, and 141.

    I also don't think raw IQ scores are an accurate measure of total intelligence.
