View Full Version : Value of this IQ test.
I would apreciate if some people here took this test. I want to know what it is worth.
Before I get naggy replies:
- Yes, it is a Dutch page, but you just have to repeat the code at the bottom of the page and start cracking. There are no words needed.
- I know there have been IQ threads. No need to collect them for me :-)

you have to fill in a code to avoid computers taking the test or something.
the code is a jpeg, you have to write out what you see.

Je score is 129 :D Didnt finish it either. Took me a couple of minutes to work out what i had to do on some of them e.g. filled in 9-15 as the shaded boxes being the missing symbol. Had to go back and redo them when i realised. :( what did everyone else get??
thanks for taking the test. By the way, it reads: "your score is 129" :-)
Can't wait for other results.
EDIT: I wanted to translate your 'je score is 129', the 165 was some slip of the mind. Sorry 'bout that.

how did u find that out A4ever?? thanks BTW i would say that is a very accurate test. one of the best ive seen :D :D lol
Because it is Dutch, and I live in Belgium.
Accurate...? It is the Mensa pre test, but Mensa doesn't give you a number when you finish it. They just say how many answers were correct.
If lots of Sciforums members take the test, we'd have a better view on what the score is worth. Maybe.

What did u get A4ever??
But taken this test a million times already. The number doesn't say anything about me.

What do u have to get on that test to join mensa then??
Well... what happens is this:
Mensa gives you a pre test on their various official sites. It is THAT test that you just made. Mensa tells you how many questions you had correct, and how much chance that gives you to pass the real test. The real test can only be done under supervision of Mensa.
Various websites, including the one which I linked you to, copy that Mensa pre test, but instead of just telling you how many questions you had correct, they give you a 'number'.
http://www.mensa.org/ for more information.

Je score is 144 :D :D easy peasy lol doesnt count once uve done the test once though does it?
I'm not sure...if you didn't see the answers that only means that your IQ is euhm...slower or something :-)
I don't know, I would like to understand IQ and IQtests better.

Who cares anyway A4ever. *shrugs* i dont think it really matters that much.
People say that they can express my weight in a number. They say I weigh 68 kg.
People claim they can tell me what number my IQ is. No one has ever done that accurate, no one seems to know how to do it.
But you're right about the fact that none of the two matter.
156, first time, with time to spare. Should I take the real Mensa test?
If you want to be a member of Mensa: yes.
If you don't: no.

IQ 'measures' your intelligence for your age. An IQ of 100 means that you have the right intelligence for your age. A test like this one looks like it measureures ones reasoning ability. The ability to think objectively and logically (which i would guess the men are better at :D :p ). So for example a score of 150 would mean that one has a score higher then ones age by a half.So a 20 yr old has the reasoning capabilities of a 30 year old (1 + 1/2= 20 + 10=30). This is if this test actually measures intelligence or reasoning capabilities (logic) at all.

Tests on-line do not give you your IQ score. Frankly, any test that publishes its questions on-line is suspect. Valid IQ tests do not publish the questions. That's why you may have IQ scores all over the map when taking on-line IQ tests. Only a standardized IQ test can give you a good picture of what your IQ range may be. A test is standardized by looking at the responses to questions from a representative sample of people. A valid IQ rating typically remains pretty consistant throughout your lifetime after the age of 10 or so.
IQ is only a measure of certain thinking skills that you may or may not employ in your day to day activities. IQ isn't the samething as knowledge.
Je score is 171
Wouldn't trust it. My IQ is not that high.
