IQ tests

Postby WendyDarling » Wed Jun 28, 2017 11:51 pm

I'd like to get an average based on all the freebie online tests.

1. So the first online IQ test I took resulted in 102 (a taxing, headache inducing 30 minutes). http://www.brainmetrix.com/free-iq-test/


2. The second (much easier) resulted in 128. Here's where I took it.https://memorado.com/iqtest Only took 5 minutes.


3. https://www.arealme.com/iq-2017/en/ This will be my third one (after I eat some pizza). 130 on this one (another taxing, headache inducing test...took awhile and I just guessed on a few to end it).


4. https://iq-research.info/en/ Must pay for result which I'm not going to do.

I once took two tests a long time ago one gave 98 and one gave 117

Took those three Wendy and got 86 and 126 and 110 respectively

But I did them quickly as it was just for curiosity and nothing else

My scores:

1) 109
2) 130
3) 185

I did first two tests last night since I couldn't sleep. Needless to say, I was tired and eager to finish them as quickly as possible in order to get results and see where I stand. Third one I approached seriously.

You took them quickly on account they were easy?

Well I only took one quickly, the other two gave my medicated brain a headache with the damn dice and multiple series progressions. :sad-roulette: Just shoot my brain like you would a lame horse.

You should retake them without trying to rush, to get more accurate numbers. I have to go fast for I can only endure thinking for so long, it makes my brain cry.

I think the 1st test had bizarre, distracting graphics that would throw off anybody (all three of us who have reported our results have what I would consider atypical low scores). The testers recommend retaking the test if you scored below a 90. Obviously, many score poorly on that test enough to qualify a retaking of the test suggestion.

Why was the second test so easy, any thoughts? A simple format with less choices. It felt more organized so my answers came more readily.

A 185 is impressive. How long did you take to complete the third test?

I should but I am not going to as I am not a fan of them as they are all usually multiple choice so correct answers can simply be guessed
The one I took years ago I paid for so seriously thought about all the questions before answering them. So that is the one I quote if I am
ever asked what mine is. However now I am less interested in tests and more in reading as much as I can and being as open minded and
as emotionally detached as possible. These qualities I rate as much as intelligence if not more so

That one was just a joke for it was way too simple
So I would not even compare it with the other two

I had 123 the first and only time. Did it at work at the end of my night shift. Took me between 15 and 30 minutes, I was interrupted a couple of times.

EDIT: Second 134, I just took it. EDIT 2: I mean I got 134 on the second test, not the second time I took the first (there has been no second time).

Obviously in a test you are limited by time but where there are no such restrictions you can think more slowly or less intensely. I think you meditate
if memory serves so that is a more slow and less intense type of thinking would you say. I am quite detached from the world so find it easy that way

Sometimes teachers don't know what to do with a kid, and so the public school system can compel these kinds of tests before they figure out what to do, and in those cases you may not have to pay the 1500 bucks.

No, I took them quickly because I was only interested in the results. The second one was fairly easy, though. Simple questions coupled with not too many choices.

Oh, I didn't look at the clock. No good would come of it anyway, being that I got a job-related task when I got to the fifteenth question and therefore had to redirect my attention entirely.

Is there a point in retaking it now that I know what the questions are? What do you say?

Christopher Langan has been described as the most intelligent person in the world.
He proved the existence of God using mathematics.

I got a philosophy degree, I'm not upset that I can't find work as a philosopher. It was my decision, and I knew that it wasn't a money making degree, so I get money elsewhere.

Is the 123 what you expected, comparable perhaps to a more official test? Did you find the second test easier and if so, why?

Intelligence cannot be measured. By definition, intelligence breaks rules and limits, and does not fall within the parameters of tests.

A test is like a trap. You're doomed to fail once you start it. And so too with "IQ tests". You already prove your gullibility by taking them seriously.

I took a paid psychological (career) test when I was 19, but that didn't give me a score, just "highly gifted". I found the second test much easier, yes, and in fact find it hard to imagine I made any mistake there. It told me I was in the top 1%, meaning I may have made one mistake and really scored as low as 133.5; in any case, the max score must be 136, if not 134 or 135.

I think the first also doesn't go much higher than what I scored, surely no higher than the second. Considering the difficulty of the first, with patterns within patterns within patterns at the end, I really think I did quite well, which is why I was willing enough to make my score known here!

Haven't done the third one, not sure I will, but I might.

P.S.: The second was in my native language, whereas the first was in English. Shouldn't matter much for me, but it may have mattered a little.

Do you think the formatting of test 2 made any difference? It was an easy read with limited options (2-3 choices), I was able to whiz right through it and if 134-136 tops it out, then I did well too.

I may look into how the tests were designed later.

The fourth test (requiring payment to see results) started out with 15 easy questions, then 15 moderately difficult questions, then 15 torturous questions. This test offered nine answer choices typically. Out of the four tests so far, I believe the fourth one would be a more accurate indicator, sucks that they want $10 from everyone for something that isn't official.

The third one was another brain drain for me, had to guess at the end to get it over with. You should take it to see if it is comparable to test 1 by way of your scoring. My scores of 102 and 130 are far apart and I'm not sure why, other than the graphics in the first one was distracting me.

The language barrier probably did affect your results. You have my permission to add +5 to your result. :evilfun: :lol:
