Your IQ - Take the test now <3
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:20:15 pm »
I was really wondering about what the average IQ (intelligence quotient) of a programming forum was O.O

Please take the test all of you  :thumbsup:
You can take the test there:
http://test.mensa.no
Also please mind that even if you suck at this test and score 80 (the average is 100) this doesn't mean you're retarded.
There are lots of different types of intelligence and this only tests one of them ^^
(I wrote a thingy about IQ tests so trust me, u're not necessarily stupid if u suck at this test)
<80 smile!
=100 ur the average
>130 ur super intelligent
>145 ur hyper intelligent
Mind that the test will take like half an hour, so don't do it when ur in a hurry :)

My results:

This test is much harder than the one I took on Omni, but also shorter. Mensa gave me 123



The Omni test and many others gave me around 110, though, but the crappy tests that are too easy and short (such as Facebook IQ tests) usually gives me 130-150.

I got 143



I agree with DJ on that. But I have some insight. In reality, an IQ test that is mostly matching pictures and finding algorithms (which I bet most of us are good at, we program stuff!) really only tests your ability to match pictures and find algorithms.


I think they should be (and real ones are) standardized tests. (dun dun DUN). In fact, tests like the SAT are (to my knowledge) designed to test IQ.


I still like the figure of 143, though. I don't think I'm that smart. (Today I walked into like 3 walls. And pulled on a door that said "push" in giant bold letters)

EDIT: We were discussing it on IRC, and Sorunome made a good point:
Quote from: Sorunome
Sorunome: you had a great advantage if 1st: you know bitwise and/or/xor, 2nd: you are familiar with matrices, 3rd: hug a plush fox and 4th: have mateo's number on your phone

when i have taken IQ tests before (twice when at school) i scored consistently about 140

on other IQ tests online , i have scored between 130 and 150.  <_<

There's a ton of tests about IQ, and no one will give the same results.

Well, I got a good 135, which is not bad.

Got a 115 but yeah I am bad at matching pattern and I had to do it quickly (10min instead of '30min). Anyway, yeah, it only test one aspect of IQ, it is hard to get a good general test. Usually those last at least 2 or 3 hours and are a collection of multiple stuff. Quite more accurate I'll say. (I did one actually when I was young and I am supposed to be >130). But I know for a fact that I am much more a space visualisation guy than a 2D pattern matching machine :p

128!   :w00t:

Which satisfies me b/c it's a power of 2. (No, I don't have OCD.  :P)

wow looks like the average (at least on this test) is 128, which is pretty impressive O.O
And still theres the point of many people scoring a little bit lower on this test O.O

They should have made this test so that it doesn't test your skills only in one single field of interest.

it's funny you say that

the 2 iq tests i took at school (which both said iq 140) were both exactly the same sort of thing, basically all (i think) pattern matching

that and my method for determining a best answer was improved when i took this test  (-_(//));


quality

*edit*
i may now be stupid compared to when i was 14 however i will say this when i was 14 in a uk-wide maths challenge my result was in the top 0.07% - best in school. therefore i expect my actual iq to be over 130  :P
