Free IQ Test Score - Online IQ Test

Well, what can I say? Facebook thinks I'm only 138, and I was happy with that.

As you know, Facebook ranks me a little higher. But well done for shopping around & joining the genius classes. I think that shows the true determination of a sound intellect.

Complacency must be a sign of my age. I am only imaging what I might have reached with such endeavour!

But in you didn't own up in your comment on my blog to that 138. Don't worry, I won't add a link...

I'm quite happy with 138 actually.

On certain test types, you only need 132 or higher to qualify for Mensa membership.

But I've never done a proper supervised test, so have no idea if I would qualify or not.

Maybe one day I'll get round to it.

I did your test. It came out the same score as Facebook's for me (one point different). So maybe you just had an off moment when you did the Facebook one.

And after all, it's not a competition is it?


I love the fact that the comments on my blog don't quite hide the fact that actually there is this really competitive streak in us - I think that probably it's all a part of achieving a standard. Getting a 146 (I so wanted a 150) made me have a nightmare about getting bad A level results. (Twenty four years ago. They were perfect.)

I'd love to say it's teaching me something new about myself, but I already know all of this!

Of course its a competition!

But with me I really do try not to make it a case of I want to be better than somebody else, but rather I want to be better than I currently am, or to be the best that I can be. Its not about pushing the other down, but rather trying to push myself up.

I am kept reasonably humble by the job I work in. I know (from IQ tests and the like) that I am quite clever by comparison to the society average out there. But I work in a university setting, surrounded by a lot of very clever people and a few geniuses. I'm probably average or a little below average for the place I work. Its good to have that perspective.
