Well, the best IQ test I could find on the internet. It's from the BBC so I imagine it couldn't be too bad.

Link has now been corrected thanks to a helpful OT user.

I got a pathetic score of 70.

That's a knowledge test, not an IQ test. Also, generally IQ tests administered online are not considered particularly useful.

I took an actual IQ test in my Psychology class last year, got a 146, highest in class. I was aiming for 150 but eh, I am kind of dumb.

I think I linked you to the wrong page. If you look on the left you will see the option 'Test the nation.' Click that and it will take you to another page which contains the link to the IQ test.

Sorry, but it won'tlet me link you to the actual page.

The most common IQ tests don't score higher than 145. >___>

That's not an IQ test, had nothing to do with solving.

Anyway I'm around 120-140 IQ.

I was going to say that with a score of 70 on an IQ test he probably shouldn't have been able to write as cogent of a post as he did.

What the f***? I just clicked the link and unless I am terribly mistaken, that didn't test intelligence. Or perhaps that's the justification I conjured up following rage-quitting due to being unable to answer the first three questions.

What age bracket do you fit in to?
Lowest option: 16-20... What if you are 15?

Clearly anyone under 16 is incapable of possessing intelligence.

Just say 16 I suppose. Not sure why it doesn't contain a younger option.

113, I'm actually surprised it was that high. I was reading OT in between questions, it should have been lower.

How utterly boring though.

Last time I took an IQ was in first grade. Supposedly, i didn't do well on standardized tests but I did well enough on the IQ test I got put into gifted classes.

mmm got to love culturally biased IQ tests (i.e. all of them)

I started it, realized it was skewed towards British people then stopped. My IQ on a test given by a psychologist (with an american bias of course) was 136.

The WAIS is the general standard IQ test, and even that is of limited value and accuracy except as part of a larger series of tests to isolate specific learning deficits. Needless to say, that limited use and accuracy is lost entirely when self-administered.

I'm going to take the test over and over again until I'm in the top percentile for intelligence.

Well, i tried to take that test, but it was so boring.

I do remember taking an IQ test in psychology and comparing it to our GPA to see the correlation. I had the highest IQ of 137 but the worst GPA. Teacher then asked why i have bad grades. Told her i dont do homework.

That's certainly a good thing; remember the innacuracy is an issue of its use on large populations, and unless you have a specific learning disability or fall outside of its range, you can put reasonable faith in it. So.. mazeltov! :)

Last time i tried one of these online IQ test I got something ridiculous like 160...(I'm not that smart, not even close; it's just online IQ tests that are garbage) Back in high school I had a real IQ test and i scored 124 if i remember correctly.

124 is quite good actually, whereas 160 is three points below Einstein, so yeah, as you say garbage.

Well I got good enough on IQ tests to be put into gifted classes, but this test was simply stupid. Completely biased towards British people and I just stopped at question 23, it dragged on forever.

On other tests i've taken, my IQ has been in the 135-145 range
