  1. I was asked my IQ at some forum long ago. I had never taken an
    IQ test before. I was suprised at my results & it does raise my self-esteem.
    If anyone would like, I can post a link or tell you how to find a website where you can find your IQ out by takin a test. :anyone:

    When I got into the psychiatric hosp they made me a lot of testing and said I had a 186 score in Weschler scale test, and a 154 score in the Stanford-Binet scale... It didn't make me feel any better, only got me feeling worse. Got me feeling the worst pile of sh** ever...
  3. My IQ was 117 last I checked.

    Wow - 186 :eek: Not bad considering the highest ever officially recorded is 189 :eek:

    I don't know what mine is but am probably just middling :mellow:

    You have to be careful with this online so-called IQ tests, the real IQ test is nothing compared to some of those I've seen online. I've never had my real IQ taken, I doubt whether it would make me feel better.

  7. Http://www.web.tickle.com was where I went but if you just search IQ test there are all kinds of different places to go.
    There are other tests there as well, not just the IQ one..... you might find something amusing to do if you are bored.

    Look, the point is... there's IQ and there's EQ... and you can have a lot of IQ (like they all say I do) and still be unable to fit in, to adjust to society, to do things right - probably you lack EQ in the situations you find in your daily life... As well as you can have a below-average IQ and stand out from the rest 'cos you have a superb EQ! So, what's the point of knowing your IQ? I find EQ far more important than IQ... You may have the brains, but if you just don't know what to do with them you'll still be a faillure...

    Im not particularly smart, but i had potential, it makes me more depressed to realize ive done nothing with it. Achieving things in life isnt about brains, its about focus and persistence, something thats been proven time and time again.

    Nope because I'm painfully average. :dry:

    IQ tests are a complete waste of time. They do not rate true brilliance, anyway, which is the emotionally competent part. All they rate is logical intelligence... completely irrational.

    For your information, I've never taken an IQ test, and never intend to.
