Congratulations, Blair!
Your IQ score is 126

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Your Intellectual Type is Word Warrior. This means you have exceptional verbal skills. You can easily make sense of complex issues and take an unusually creative approach to solving problems. Your strengths also make you a visionary. Even without trying you're able to come up with lots of new and creative ideas. And that's just a small part of what we know about you from your test results.

All it really proves is that I'm exactly smart enough not to give them any money for their 15 page personalized report.

[Skeptic hat on] Probably BS, in my not very humble opinion. IQ tests attempt to reduce a very complex and variable phenomenon, human intelligence, to a single number, and the statistical legitimacy of that is an open question. I've long suspected that what you score on IQ tests is a measure of how good you are at that particular kind of test, and not much else. [Skeptic hat off]

I've personally scored between 110 and 166 on various IQ tests. What am I to conclude from that?

Ya got a point. I was smart enough to avoid that too.

Congratulations, Sandy!

Your Intellectual Type is Visionary Philosopher. This means you are highly intelligent and have a powerful mix of skills and insight that can be applied in a variety of different ways. Like Plato, your exceptional math and verbal skills make you very adept at explaining things to others and at anticipating and predicting patterns. And that's just some of what we know about you from your IQ results.

Uh huh.

I like the "explaining things to others" part - I've never felt that was one of my strengths.

This is BS by the way, I once had a real IQ test and I can assure you: it did not look like this one ...

I don't put much stock in real IQ tests either, or those ones that are supposed to determine what you should be if you grow up. They were all the rage when I was in school and I took to just guessing without reading the questions.

Sometimes I was a genius (think I got 160 once) and sometimes I was a moron (those results will get you retested in a hurry BTW) but usually it showed me to be someplace in between...about average and pretty much where I belong.

This one though? Designed to flatter so you'll buy that 15 page report.

No... since I scored the highest, I'm sure it's completely accurate.

The rest of you are just jealous...........

But I'm sure you would have tested much higher on a more accurate test, Lady C.

I did some IQ test once for a job and it looked like the one used by Tickle, except it was more complex. Is it accurate? I have no idea, but that's what some people use here to test you.

Congratulations!
Your IQ score is 133

This number is based on a scientific formula that compares how many questions you answered correctly on the Classic IQ Test relative to others.

Your Intellectual Type is Visual Mathematician. This means you are gifted at spotting patterns both in pictures and in numbers. These talents combined with your overall high intelligence make you good at understanding the big picture, which is why people trust your instincts and turn to you for direction especially in the workplace. And that's just some of what we know about you from your test results.

Although the number may not really mean anything, damn the analysis is accurate! (This is my score from when I took the test over 2 years ago..I should take it again and see if I got smarter, or dumber...)
