Thanks for using it all day guys… I knew that clickbait would make this guy a handsome profit and what better bait than a bogus IQ test. :lol:

What worries me Sotos is that you made several attempts before you could get into the “4%” even though it’s designed to let most people in! :? :lol:

It's hard to find an IQ test that won't be biased in one way or another. From a quick look this one is biased on the following factors:National origin, educational level (particularly maths skill, English language skill). Nearly all IQ tests I 've seen so far are biased against slow (deeper thinking) people. Yes I proudly plea guilty on that :lol:

I have taken a "specialty" quiz just recently made by a Japanese guy, he actually releases one every year where the all time maximum success so far was 8 out of 10. In all previous years I've spend about 1 to 2 minutes per question and like most people I was scoring from zero to maximum 3 just like 95% of the people
This year I decided to spend 20 minutes on each problem and think about it really well. (total of 10 problems). I got 7 out of 10!!
Funny thing I solved the first 5 in just 30 minutes and I got only one wrong. I found the remaining 5 extremely difficult and I think it took me more than 2 hours to do end up to a relatively confident answer. Yet I got 2 wrong from those last 5.
Go figure...
Ego boosting stupid quizes.

I mean there are so many factors that could make up one's intelligence be it imagination, creativity, originality, dealing with randomness and the unexpected, just to name a few, that there is no way to measure it.

I think I got 100%. I say I think, because I didn't pay the money to get the results. I mean, what for? I spent the £5 instead on a pint of coooold Guinness at Heathrow while waiting for my flight to Zurich tonight. Now, that made total sense to do that! :D :D :D

My daughter took a Weschler Nonverbal Intelligence test which seemingly eliminates many issues related to National Origin, Education, and maths and English skill - she was 4 at the time and was apparently in the 99.8th percentile - IQ over 140. On the basis of that she obtained Mensa membership.

I did a WISC and scored at about 126 or about the 95th percentile: not bright enough for Mensa.
