One more Time i am Zero interested in the Score
or how long it need, the only thing i am interested in
is the "Up or Down"!
Kind of a Self-awareness Check Up,
are you becoming smarter or is the Result the same?
(getting less "intelligent", what ever this means)
Even on a completely valid test, if you have had an erroneously very high score and used
that as a benchmark, most of the following scores will be lower. You might occasionally
(if you take many, many tests) do about as well.
By valid in the above and following, I mean an IQ test which has been calibrated against
a standard like the Stanford-Binet or Wechsler tests. They should be administered and it
should be noted that the person giving the test can influence the results to some extent.
Most valid tests are much more accurate around an IQ of 100, a few specialized tests may
have improved accuracy for either high or low scorers and not do as well with average
scorers. Often, the common standard tests have only a few (at most) questions to assign
scores for individuals in the tails. They are not accurate much outside of +/- two standard
The online tests which are free are trying to sell you something. That said, the free tests
tend to be nothing more than bait. They could be biased towards easier questions to inflate
your score and thus your probability of purchasing what they want to sell. Even if they used
standardized scoring, they are typically much too short for stability and could give widely
varying results. I personally wouldn't bother with them unless you are trying to become
familiar with a particular problem type or find some level of amusement in them or have some
other goal besides curiosity about your IQ. I would at least want to see their method of
standardizing to the real IQ standards and how they determined that the online test, which
has no person administrating and usually isn't timed, is equivalent.
