People acturly go lower than 100 on this?
9 years ago
100 is average i think is how it works. so there should be just as many people under as there are over.
9 years ago
90 is avg actually
9 years ago
No, it is in fact 100, actually.
9 years ago
nihilus, is still an idiot for saying everything else in his post though.

"so there should be just as many people under as there are over."

I very fucking much doubt that there would actually be a curve in the correlation between peoples IQ's & their believe in a higher power.
9 years ago
no, there wouldnt be a curve, thats why this is marked in "What's So Funny"

But, theoritically, if this was a correlation, and the statistics were naturally distributed, then there would be as many people above the line, then there are below
9 years ago
Nihilooser was just talking about IQ only, I think. If 100 is the avg. There should be as many people with an over 100 IQ as below, nothing relating to religion.

I'm tipping jones has taken one of those internet IQ tests. I saw an ad the other day that claimed the average IQ was 125 and that if you answer 5 questions via sms they'll tell you your IQ. Fucking morons.
9 years ago
If youre retarded enough to use the service Im sure one could think of a rough estimate.
9 years ago
there dont need to be as much people under as over. five people with 90 and one with 150 make an average 100.
9 years ago
True, but then there's also one person with a 50. I did some work recently at a housing facility of mentally retarded people. One of the people there had a tested IQ of 5.

Five. His mental age was something like 11 months.

1rish1?
9 years ago
That's misleading, I mean IQ tests are inaccurate in the first place, but how are you going to give an IQ test to a retard? If they don't understand what they're meant to do then you can't measure their intelligence.
9 years ago
Yeah, I think that IQ scores shouldn't go below 70. Anything lower than that just gets scored as "take them out back and shoot them"
9 years ago
There is actually some validity to this-- only it's insofar as that people with a higher education and not necessarily higher IQs believe less and less in the importance of religion.
9 years ago
What's this? They couldn't find anyone with an IQ over 110? Were they interviewing only at trailer parks, and Roscoe's Chicken?

srsly dont talk shit about roscoes, ill find you
9 years ago
For real! (about Roscoe's)... but you guys are talking to a known Mormon.. It's best to always let them believe they are right.. and that way they will leave us alone...
9 years ago
Who's this "known mormon," dipshit? I'm might be a palygamist, but I'm no mormon. And I wasn't talkin shit about Roscoes, just about the average person that eats there.
9 years ago
my iq is 121
9 years ago
Jamies is the highest on here, as far as I know at 136 (I think)

It's all about the % though since the numbers can vary per test with the same person.

PERCENTILES DON'T LIE!
9 years ago
umm.. percentage and percentile are different measurements, btw
9 years ago
when i was 14 mine was 134
last year i clocked in at 102
...wtf?
9 years ago
With the standard deviation and a mean, you can calculate percentiles. Percentiles tell you the percent of people that have a score equal to or lower than a certain score.

umm.. you wanna shut the fuck up now, idiot?
9 years ago
I took an IQ test when I was little, apparently. Something about me being too young for my grade, so they tested me to see whether I should be held back or moved forward. But I'll keep my peace on the results. You'd all call 'bullshit' anyway, and you wouldn't be wrong to do so. It's too easy to lie on the internet. And anyway, the whole concept of "IQ" is a fucking joke.
9 years ago
It is a great way of measuring abstract reasoning.

Granted it doesn't definitively give a score on other types of intelligence but they generally correlate.
9 years ago
I tested really high as a kid, but I guarantee I wouldn't get anywhere near as high now. I was higher than 136.
9 years ago
Gottlos--
all kids get IQ testing. just a matter of if you get it more than once.
9 years ago
"all kids get IQ testing. just a matter of if you get it more than once."

Not at all. If you do a proper test as a child you will get whatever score you are capable of. That score may change as an adult though.

(I just noticed you're the "90 is avg actually", guy. So you know nothing & should just be quiet)
9 years ago
omg, look who can define percentile.. its still different than %, which is a common abbreviation for percentAGE, so quit gettin' pissed because you dick size has a z score of -2.36
9 years ago
I don't know very many people at all who know their own IQ score, past or present, so either very few parents tell their children what score they got, or saber is wrong. He's probably thinking of placement tests children take before starting school, but that's not the same.

But anyway, as people have pointed out, IQ scores change drastically as we age, more often for the worse. Are we to believe we become less intelligent as we grow up? No. A test like that is way too conditional and objective to be valid.
9 years ago
And I also scored higher than 136, but who knows what I'd get now?
9 years ago
There was no need at all for you to point out the obvious fact that they are different, you just 'thought' you were being clever. You were trying to correct me because you have no idea what you are talking about. You know it, I know it & everyone else knows it.
9 years ago
& percent, % & percentage are all the same fucking thing, dumbass.

So umm..again, shut the fuck up.
9 years ago
no you didn't gottlos that was how many cocks you sucked
9 years ago
all mistakes about my intelligence aside, you used them both in the same comment as if they were the same thing, though clearly they are different..
so-
accept you were wrong
fap it to "asian sprinkler system"
..and
FUCK OFF!!
9 years ago
Interesting. And naturally you couldn't come up with a worthwhile thought in a thread about intelligence.
9 years ago
and I think you meant to say 'despite having no idea what you're talking about' Nobody corrects somebody BECAUSE they don't know what they're talking about
9 years ago
Toward drumrave^. I don't even know how to respond to rambling bile like that Metalface.
9 years ago
Stop interposting me you fucking downs case!!!
9 years ago
no one included you in my argument with oranje, gottlos.. therefore, no need to respond
9 years ago
No one can tell or fucking care who your incoherent babbling is directed towards. Stop talking to yourself.
9 years ago
The fact that Jamie got what is considered a high score cements the idea IQ tests are a crock.
9 years ago
(for those on the lower side of the IQ mean, this is for oranje)
Ex: Bob scores a 84% on his test, but out of the whole class, he is in the 98th percentile..

see, its simple.. you're dumb
9 years ago
This may help you MetalFace.

IQ is often expressed in percentiles, which is not the same as percentage scores, and a common reason for the misunderstanding of IQ test scores. Percentage refers to the number of items which a child answers correctly compared to the total number of items presented. If a child answers 25 questions correctly on a 50 question test he would earn a percentage score of 50. If he answers 40 questions on the same test his percentage score would be 80. Percentile, however, refers to the number of other test takers’ scores that an individual’s score equals or exceeds. If a child answered 25 questions and did better than 50% of the children taking the test he would score at the 50th percentile. However, if he answered 40 questions on the 50 item test and everyone else answered more than he did, he would fall at a very low percentile — even though he answered 80% of the questions correctly

"and I think you meant to say 'despite having no idea what you're talking about' Nobody corrects somebody BECAUSE they don't know what they're talking about"

As for this, I clearly stated that you 'thought' you were being clever & because of this you were under the impression that you knew what you were talking about. It is BECAUSE of this, you corrected me BECAUSE, you in fact, didn't know what you were talking about.

Yikes... will you guys settle the fuck down already, and stop cuttin' and pastin' from wiki??
9 years ago
so you ADMIT that you knew that they were different terms, and you used them like that anyway, hmmm...
9 years ago
That is what I fucking said, you nob head.

You take the % to get the percentile WHICH DOESN'T FUCKING LIE!

I don't see you're problem.

lol, you could've said that first and got me off of your back, but you kept giving me ammo.. btw, it's spelled Knob :P

IQ is bollocks.

I scored a 140 on the only IQ test I ever took, maybe around Jr. High school. That means I'm better than anyone with a lower score.
9 years ago
^take your religious claptrap elsewhere church boy
9 years ago
I scored 136 on one I took when I was about 34 years old. It consisted of recognizing complex patterns, math word problems, and vocabulary. It was for fun and I agree with Hank. IQ is bollocks as there are so many forms of intelligence it doesn't measure
9 years ago
l skore 210... opps sorry i was on the weight scale
9 years ago
Nah Metal, you were just trying to pick fault where there was non.

I said "& percent, % & percentage are all the same fucking thing, dumbass.", because you wrote, "its still different than %, which is a common abbreviation for percentAGE". Probably unnecessary, but the 'AGE' in that prompted me. I didn't include percentile in that 'cause yeah, that would be different.

I'd like to think this is resolved now.

Does anyone know of an IQ test site that is scientifically legitimate and free?
9 years ago
If you want an accurate measurement, then no. You'll have to stop being cheap & pay for a supervised test. They aren't expensive, just check out any high IQ society.

There was one I took on MENSA's site (could have been a link from there as I don't remember) a long time ago, I scored quite high but figured it was b.s...

Half of the population have IQ’s of between 90 and 110, withe the remaining half dispersed above and below that medium range.

A normal IQ range is considered to be from 85 to 115. Only approximately 1% of the people in the world have an IQ of 135 or over.

140+ is considered Genius.

Einstein was about 160.

And normally Doctors administer the test, and don't share the results because they want to avoid bias, or discrimination.

it amuses me that the people visiting this website, who claim to have the highest IQ scores, seem to be the ones that generally post such intellectual nuggets as.... ' you are gay! ' ' well, you're gayer! ' ' you are so gay that other gays punch you for being TOO gay! ' etc etc
