1.Perceiving emotions – the ability to detect and decipher emotions in faces, pictures, voices, and cultural artifacts—including the ability to identify one's own emotions. Perceiving emotions represents a basic aspect of emotional intelligence, as it makes all other processing of emotional information possible.
2.Using emotions – the ability to harness emotions to facilitate various cognitive activities, such as thinking and problem solving. The emotionally intelligent person can capitalize fully upon his or her changing moods in order to best fit the task at hand.
3.Understanding emotions – the ability to comprehend emotion language and to appreciate complicated relationships among emotions. For example, understanding emotions encompasses the ability to be sensitive to slight variations between emotions, and the ability to recognize and describe how emotions evolve over time.
4.Managing emotions – the ability to regulate emotions in both ourselves and in others. Therefore, the emotionally intelligent person can harness emotions, even negative ones, and manage them to achieve intended goals.

What is a test? A test is knowing the answers to a question. Ok, well then here is something to try. Take the same IQ test five times .
The thing is each time you take it, EVEN if the questions were changed, you will get a feel for the format .
So each time your score will be higher . It may
notonly change butone point BUT it will change .
IQ is NOT a static thing. It changes every day and even every hour, as even what you eat can affect how well you can learn .
You want a really good example? When I am just not in the mood to bother with it, my spelling looks like a fifth grader .
So if i ¿spell bad? one post and ¿spell good (well)? on another, which indicates my intelligence?
P.s. I can ¿do? a post without spell check if I really try. Lol.

Thanks i understand and appreciate your comments.
I do feel however you are missing my point.
Let's say a person did an IQ test and the results were, 140 IQ. This then automatically makes this person think he is intelligent or clever, smarter than 3.6 billion people, purely based on the result of the test. But if the test was inaccurate, his whole belief and credibility is destroyed with that information.
So how do we know then how smart someone really is?
I'm interested in knowing if anybody knows of, or has a link to an IQ test they think may be accurate (or as close to) when attempting to determine ones intelligence.

There's no correlation between genius and an IQ over 120. If you can score this high, you've got the capacity to excel at what you've got a passion for, imo. IQ seems to be related to a certain type of thought process that tends to do well in the educational system. Still, there are plenty of individuals who score within the 90-110 range that have excellent street smarts/common-sense and/or have excellent creative potentials. The only test I ever took was the AFQT portion of the ASVAB on their pretest at the recruiting center. I scored into the 97th percentile. They said it was both the highest score they've seen, and a record time for completion at under 8 minutes. I honestly thought the test was a joke. That test certainly didn't measure my intellectual potential.

When I was in High School, my parents sent me for an "evaluation" because they felt I was underperforming. I would do well on tests, but refused to do homework as I found it redundant if I could pass the test.
