    I'm suspicious of some of the answers on the poll. There's no way a damn hobo is smarter then me. I live in a house ffs.

    As for my scores, when I was tested at 10-- ironically, to test for learning disabilities-- I scored off the scale the test was calibrated for, and all they could tell me was that it was higher than 163.

    Professionally-administered tests as an adult place me consistently in the mid-140s, with an occasional fluke score in the high 130s or low 150s. The scores would probably be much higher if I'd spent more time in an intellectually stimulating environment and less time in a drug-induced stupor as an adolescent.

    What is the average of those tests?

    How opportunistic. I just took my IQ test and they snapped my photo as I was taking it. Man I was stressed...



    Still waiting on the results...

    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.
    This is hilarious. I would love to see this.

    .
    Why ironically? There seams to be this perception that learning disabilities constitute a lack of intelligence which is inaccurate given how conditions like dyslexia and dyspraxia occur at all levels of intelligence.

    Same here. At least the first time.

    The average IQ for middle class white people in the United States is not 100. It's significantly higher than that. I would be surprised if it's much below 115. Maybe higher than that, if you're an Ashkenazi Jew.
    100 is the median IQ for everyone, and first-generation immigrants and underprivileged minorities routinely score below 100, bringing the median down.
    Yet many researchers have made a compelling case that the discrepencies are cultural in origin, not biological; to wit, the test is biased in favor of middle-class whites (and possibly males).
    And this is what I believe.

    It was the Classic Tickle IQ test, but I cannot find the maximum score anymore on tehir website anymore. By teh way, the maximum score is actually 144, though, not 143 like I said before.

    Try here: It's a web archive search of the information from back when I did this.

    Quote:

    According to Tickle's Classic IQ Test:
    - A score between 70 and 84 places you below the population average
    - A score between 85 and 99 puts you slightly below the population average, but is in the normal range
    - A score of 100 represents the population average
    - A score between 101 and 115 puts you above the population average, but is in the normal
    range
    - A score between 116 and 130 means that your IQ might be significantly above the population average
    - Scores of 130 and above puts you significantly above the population average
    144 is the highest possible score.

    I don't know if teh max score has been changed since then (it was a while ago that I performed the "experiment").

    Unfortunately, I cannot find the actual post from the place where I did this that it happened on. There was ne search program at teh other place, so teh thread s lost.


    Have at it if you want to test it elsewhere, though. You should probably get similar results as I did.
