    Re: What is Your IQ?

    The online tests are, obviously, not taken in a test taking environment. I work with people who give IQ test for a living. They tell me that the online tests, most of them, inflate one's IQ score by 15%-20% because of the environment, controls, and the standards set from the official tests, themselves. I know that when I have taken the online tests, I have come out in the upper 160's (168 to be exact). When I was tested in school, under a standardized, test-taking environment, my IQ was measured at 147.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    The only way to get an accurate reading is if everyone takes the same IQ test and reports the results. Online and Mensa tests are not the same and will produce different results. I also highly doubt the same thing that Kandahar pointed out.
    Welfare (Food Stamps, WIC, etc...) are not entitlements. They are taxpayer funded handouts and shouldn't be called entitlements at all. Social Security and Veteran's benefits are 'Entitlements' because the people receiving them are entitled to them. They were earned and paid for by the recipients.

    Excellent point. I took three online test to get my result and used the average. The results varied by nearly 40 points.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    I've done so many online tests- they're close to worthless unless someone reliable like Mensa provides them. My official IQ was measured at 148, but that was in kindergarten and I certainly wasn't using my test-taking skills at the time.

    Thank you for that. They were not professionally administered, which makes them worthless.

    Apparently you're not aware of Mensa's test taking then. As for scientology, I put as much faith in their test as I do their "religion".

    Is there some reason you feel you need to attack me?

    you're right. I've done it once (a free one) but it gave me something like 135

    To me it's just BS (even the "real" tests). It is not possible to "scan" the intelligence of somebody (who may have read dozens of books, know thousands of things...)..with 40 or 100 multiple-choice questions.

    Attack you? Why don't you read up on "IQ" testing and find out how ridiculous it really is? It's got so many problems that the people deeply involved in it can't agree on what it really means. I'm not attacking YOU. I was actually joking with you in my first post.

    Re: What is Your IQ?

    Many people lie about their IQ scores.

    I have tested this on another website where I picked a specific test with a certain score range tha will not change.

    I asked people ot post their scores. Amazingly a goodly proportion of those who responded said they scored above 145, 148, 160 etc.

    Unfortunately, for this particular test, that was 100% impossible because 143 is the maximum score. I posted the link that proved this afterwards.

    It's fun to screw with liars.




    P.S. My IQ is still what I posted here... 3 under par.

    I think it's between 120-130. I feel dumb with all these egg heads in here.
