Does anyone know of an accurate, free, online Test?

I've tried a few different tests and got way different results which makes me question there accuracy.

would others like to share there results?

Let's start by saying any online IQ test is going to be brief and for entertainment only

don't trust those results.

You need to have a real test but I want to caution you on somehting

Finding your true results can be dangerous to the psyche. If it's much lower than you can fall into depression

if it's much higher...over-confidence can kick in. Happens alot...but if you want to do it I would just go to a center and have it taken

i agree.
online tests are not going to be accurate at all.

just for fun i went to and took theirs....

it said my general score is 101. i don't even know if that is good. it is probably on the retarded end of the spectrum. i don't know much about and cichlids really.

enter your email and it will send you the score. it asks for a credit card at the end but i just closed it out at that point, checked my email and it was there. i think the card was for some sort of access.

thanks for the advise, i hadn't really thought about that but i suppose it does make sense.

I used and got 122 not sure if this is high or average. but as you said before, I'm not putting a lot of trust in these results.

It also depends on the scale you are using.

On some scales 101 is under-average

on others it's average

one a couple it is slightly above

One thing to consider here as well.

IQ tests basically measure two things.

1. Your ability to learn in a conventional environment

2. Your ability to recognize patterns

Look at IQ questions and you'll see...well a pattern! (no pun intended)

Alot of those questions are based on pattern such as....

Is 64 next number in this chain? 2, 6, 14, 30

So you have to decide and it's based off of pattern recognition.

You can see a couple things happening here.

1. The numbers are ascending

2. If you really see in side, you'll see that the next number in the series is basically 2 x (the previous number + 1)

basically 1+1=2

then...the previous number is 2+1=3. Then take 3 x 2 = 6 and so on

So the next logical number...would be 62 not 64. (30 + 1) x 2 = 62

Now why did I do this? Was it to show off my skill? Yeah sort of...but there is an underlying point here.

I do in fact have a fairly high IQ...and frankly it means nothing. I am great at recognizing patterns but there are so many other types of intelligence out there. I will gladly take a balanced individual over someone with a high IQ anyday.

It just isn't worth it...and IQ doesn't make me feel any better than anyone else...truly I mean that. Now my muscles on the other hand!!

just kidding...I'm a wimp :-p

see ya guys!
