Default IQ league

http://www.iqleague.com/
Let's see how high the IQ here is! We need five people to do it before it starts being ranked (I already took some tests, I'm 118.46).

Last fiddled with by TimSorbet on 2008-05-27 at 00:51 Reason: updated IQ (I clicked the link here and took the test, so it should count me as one of the five)

On my dial-up link, it takes several seconds for diagrams to appear on the first question, so I'd automatically be at a disadvantage. I'll wait for a "level playing field".

The whole site seems to rely solely on JavaScript so I can't access the tests at all.

IQ tests are for idiots. ;)

Seriously, if you want the world to know how smart you are - stop admiring the framed Mensa membership certificate on your wall and go do something that's both intelligent and worthwhile.

The first time I took it the phone rang half way through, I got 95%.
So I took it again (different questions) and got 103.22%.

I think I prefer the first score, at least I had an excuse.

My weakness would be the 'which is the next shape' type of question.
What are your weaknesses? (If any!)

@ ewmayer
I can't do intelligent and worthwhile.

If you can only do one or the other, suggest "worthwhile" as being the more, um, worthwhile of the two.

One of my answers was random caused by clicking a second time on the answer I wanted before the page had changed (internet lag) and the second click being taken as the answer on that part of the next page that was loading. I say that just as a warning for other test-takers: one click is enough!

By the way, I wholeheartedly agree with Professor Mayer. My father (who is British) qualified for membership of the British Mensa and was very proud to be associated with such super intelligence. But after reading a few of their ridiculous monthly members' magazines where they all discussed how wonderful they were and their plans for forming a special committee of themselves to advise all the world leaders, he shame-facedly cancelled his membership.

People take IQ tests thinking that they somehow measure something of great importance. Unfortunately, that is not true. All the IQ in the world won't do a thing if it is not used. The current IQ champion of the world was a bartender in New York the last I heard of him. What is he doing with his IQ of 198?

I don't put much stock in on-line IQ tests. Myself and some co-workers took a test and we all three got the same exact score, we seemed to hit the ceiling on it. The number seemed low, at least compared to a previous test that I took.

Marilyn Vos Savant (I think that is a psuedonym) claims a 210, if memory serves.

Anyone notice the gal on Jeopardy? In 6 days she has $220,000. Two of her family members have been on, one got bumped off by Ken Jennings.
