    I wonder what IQ you have and how old you are.
    I'm 14 years old and have 116 in IQ. I think that is very bad but I don't know.

    Average is 100, standard deviation is 15-20 (I think?) depending on age; I don't know if you'd qualify as a child or adult. If IQ meant a damn thing, you'd be smarter than 67% of the population if you were an adult.

    What's mine? I don't know, I don't want to know. Stupid is as stupid does.

    I find IQ tests to be kind of... I don't know... maybe bullshit.

    As each IQ test is different, you could get a very different score on every test you ever do- but it's not a test of intelligence; it's a test of knowledge... that knowledge is not standardized in any way and differs from region to region- country to country- and each person's brain takes things in a bit differently-- it doesn't mean that a low IQ=stupid person but a 'high IQ'=person most likely from same region where the test was originally created.
    Something like that.

    anyways... don't let a test tell you that you are stupid.
    Decide that for yourself and if you are worried-- just pay more attention to the lessons around you and work on yourself for your own sake.

    No one believes me when I say this but I actually tested 151 when I was in the 3rd grade (ironically they gave me an IQ test because they thought I was slow) and I am 23 now, when I got older I was able to use that score to get into MENSA and all that other stuff, my parents entered me in chess tornements (I never got out of the second round, but I put up my share of fights), honestly a high IQ is wonderful and all but I think it is more important to be well read and truth be told between a steady amount of pot in college I would knock off 10 points just to be on the safe side. Also 116 is a good score there is nothing wrong with that, the average is 100, so you are well ahead of the curve.

    My IQ is 143, I was tested when I was young. And recent tests have said the exact same thing.

    I normally score between 135 and 143, on the "Official" BBC one though, I got 138. You wouldn't think it.

    I'm a 142. Technically a genius, so I joined Mensa...Idk though, just seems like a game these days. It's outdated anyway. It was meant to properly assign French children into schools based on their level of retardation after the French Revolution rocked the school system or some bull like that. Don't pay too much attention to it. It doesn't mean jack...and I'm sure I've more than efficiently proved that through my ignorance of the exact history of IQ testing...lol.

    My IQ was tested as 164 - got into mensa - and for once in my life my family stopped treating me as stupid because I'm dyslexic and disabled - Shame it took until my 40th year for it to happen

    Yeah IQ doesn't really mean much of anything, nothing to worry about either way. Abe Lincoln would be considered mentally retarded by modern standards.
