THis is for a real IQ test, not one of those you find online. If you don't know, just put you don't know. 130 and above is Mensa. 150 and above is technically genius (I believe - could be wrong).

Mensa is actually 132 and represents the top 2% of IQs. AFAIC that counts as genius.

The Emode one is actually fairly accurate. I cross-checked it with the ones that were professionally done and they were all within the same range.

I've gotten online scores anywhere from 115-145. I've only taken one "real" one and, lets just say it was closer to 145 than to 115.

No.

Mensa qualifications are to attain a score within the upper 2% of any approved intelligence test. Depending on the test administered, the actual IQ number result can vary. Also, some intelligence tests don't quantify using IQ scores at all.

There was a hot blonde nearby when I took mine, I'm pretty sure she single-handidly brought my score down. They should account for that.

they give you these tests as kids to see if you are mentally retarded. The IQ test wasn't designed for intelligent people. Also, you can't take them over 18 (and have them be accurate) because it is highly related to age. In my Pyschology class Senior year of High school our teacher got all our IQ tests and gave it to us. I was around 125/124 but I can't remember. There was a brainac kid (that boasts about his intelligence) next to me that had above 130 and we took a test MENSA test. It was great because I got them all right, but he missed one. I will never forget that day.

The IQ system is designed so that the average person gets 100. All the results here are above that so far. So either C+G is full of smarter-than-average people, or liars.... :rolleyes:

Ummm a standard IQ test has the scores set with a mean of 100, and the top 2% most usually is 132 or higher. Yes, IQ can vary slightly depending on the exact test taken and other environmental factors, but most approved tests are as described.

Now Fly, check out Mensa's website regarding the approved tests. They do this to make sure the tests will all yield the same general ranges of scores. I am not aware if Mensa has approved any non-IQ intelligent tests, but I do know that they do approve many IQ-based ones.

I would say that most people posting on a website like this probably are - though not geniuses - above average in intelligence. This sort of analytical, object oriented type stuff tends to attract smarter folk. ^_^ Edited by Shantanu

How do I qualify for Mensa?

Membership in Mensa is open to persons who have attained a score within the upper two percent of the general population on an approved intelligence test that has been properly administered and supervised. There is no other qualification or disqualification for membership eligibility.

The term "IQ score" is widely used but poorly defined. There are a large number of tests with different scales. The result on one test of 132 can be the same as a score 148 on another test. Some intelligence tests don't use IQ scores at all. Mensa has set a percentile as cutoff to avoid this confusion. Candidates for membership in Mensa must achieve a score at or above the 98th percentile (a score that is greater than or equal to 98 percent of the general population taking the test) on a standard test of intelligence.

Generally, there are two ways to prove that you qualify for Mensa: either take the Mensa test, or submit a qualifying test score from another test. There are a large number of intelligence tests that are "approved". More information on whether a test you have taken is approved, as well as information on the procedure for taking the Mensa test, can be obtained from the nearest Mensa office. There are no on-line tests that can be used for admission to Mensa. Feel free to contact Mensa for specific details about eligibility.

Mensa has no other eligibility requirements other than IQ testing. However, many tests are not valid for people under the age of 16. You should contact the nearest Mensa office for more information.

well, the board software is written in PHP, which supports object-oriented programming. Other than that, I'm not sure.

Last I took an IQ test(a real one), it came out as 153. Lowest I've tested that I remember is 148, and I've tested as high as 160. I believe 160 is actually considered genius.

Fly: Yes, my comments were directed at the Mensa-approved tests. They generally score the top two percent as 132 or higher.

LOL, ah you nerds always relate stuff back to computers. :lol:

Actually what I was saying is that since people here obviously have some interest in cars (an object), it means that they have some capacity to be object oriented. That's not a trait that you see in people who have lower than average IQ's, at least not to the extent that they would become so interested in it that they would find a computer to go post about it on the internet.

Exactly. The minimum test marks to get into Mensa are:

* Cattell III B - 148
* Cattell Culture Fair - 132
* Ravens Advanced Matrices - 135
* Ravens Standard Matrices - 131
* Wechsler Scales - 132

A middle aged adult can only get a maximum IQ of 161 on the Cattell III B test. Most online tests where you can score 150-160 will tend to split their scores into broader groups than the top 2% required by Mensa and few are timed or adjusted for age, which makes it easier to get a perfect score.
