    So what's a person considered if their IQ is above 160?
    I think that's the "genius" mark.

    Just to put this test in perspective, the results for actual IQ testing:

    100 is higher than 50% of the people who take the test.
    110 is higher than 75% of the people who take the test.
    120 is higher than 93% of the people who take the test.
    130 is higher than 98% of the people who take the test.

    Must be an extremely elite grouping we've got here, or a ridiculous test. Hopefully it's a little from both columns.

    Of course IQ testing is no longer considered an accurate measurement of a person's intellect, the test faces charges of being sexually and racially discriminatory and the theory of "multiple intellects" is becoming widely accepted.

    One of Terr's online rules:
    "IQ tests are all crap."

    I stand by this. 'officially', 100% is average, and given a sort of bell-curve distribution, very few people go over 120 or so. A while ago some friends and I took an online test (iqtest.com?) and nearly everyone got over 140. Yeah right! The scores are bogus, I'm afraid. They give you a nice high score so that you will be interested enough to purchase some sort of 'advanced breakdown of performance' chart, or some other ego-boosting item. It's pretty manipulative.

    Congratulations!
    Your general IQ score is 121.

    BUT, I finished the test in under a minute, this time being the first time. (Fine, don't believe me)
    That was more of a recognition test than a traditional IQ test..., hence the need to take it fast(so you'd give your answers before you really had time to think about it).

    IQ tests are complete crap, and have been since their inception (they were created on the premise that people of certain ethnic backgrounds are neccessarily more intelligent than others, Eastern Europeans vs. Anglo-Europeans) Check out Alfred Binet, Sir Francis Galton, Theodore Simon, Lewis Terman, and Carl Brigham in relation to the formation of the modern IQ testing. Personally, I agree with Terman's simple formula (Mental Age/Chronological Age)*100=IQ.

    Congratulations!
    Your general IQ score is 122. A person whose IQ score falls in the range of 111-128 is considered to be "above average intelligence". Guess I got a pretty good score.

    How about the people whose native language is not English. I mean obviously it takes more time to read and understand each question.

    144 that's my score. But just to prove that this test is bullshit gifted starts at a score of 129. Since when does rushing a person become a way to tell if they're intelligent? Ah well nice post it entertained me.

    In all honesty, you guys can probably consider that test relatively accurate. I've taken 2 professional and 3 online tests in the last few years, and all my scores have ranged from 138 - 151. If anything, this particular testing site's score classifications may be a little generous, bear in mind as well, that many people really do score in the range of 100-120, so if you're above 120, you're at least above average. On a side note, anyone who thinks that the test may be a little too generous score wise (what with all these replies being from people above 120) consider this, average people aren't into system security like (most) of us here are. I only have 1 or 2 friends that can actually carry on a conversation with me about having to re-assign the memory address and IRQ for my NIC so it will function without conflicts on my peer to peer network
