    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".

    I doubt people with average IQs are inclined to post that. It's like advertising inadequate sexual prowess.

    / 1069 is not embarrassed to post her very mediocre (for her sex, race and class) IQ score.

    I know how smart and singularly cool I am.
    I'm not necessarily very good at taking tests, though.
    Especially under duress.

    Actually, the number you posted was above average. You have nothing to be ashamed of, IQ wise.

    It's self reporting. What do you expect?

    I voted <80 for kicks and giggles.

    Purely looking at the quality of the content here, I'll bet the farm, the boat, the house and the vacation time share that virtually everyone who posted aside from the obvious joke-sters are posting fake numbers either intentionally or unintentionally.

    Perhaps a lot of these people, as the OP suggested, took some internet "IQ test", and don't realize it's not the real mcdeal.

    (several of these folk- Bodhi and Rivr come to mind- have mentioned having astronomically high IQ scores in the past; they've mentioned it a number of times over the past couple of years. This is not the first time IQ has been discussed. So if it's a "joke", it's one of the long-running kind).

    My test was taken in 8th grade. Online tests also put me in that range or higher.

    As Jallman said, those tests aren't the be all, end all of someone's intelligence.

    .....scored 130, on the Stanford-Binet test, three decades ago. Mensa cutoff is reported to be 132, or 98th percentile, and above.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    Most of those internet tests I've seen have an average IQ of 125 and they don't tell the standard deviation. I usually see numbers 160+ when I take them.

    On all the professional tests I've taken, I've hovered around the second standard deviation. (~130)

    Unfortunately, my borderline genius fails to make up for the fact that I'm much stupider than average. I'd be much happier with fewer brains and more common sense...anyone want to trade?
