What is your IQ?

Ha! I got the same thing.
Christ, I think that's the lowest I've ever scored on one of those things. 67... F**king bull.

This is quite an interesting subject.
I would never believe an on-line test like that (especially after all these posts I read about ads & gimmicks)
First of all there are different IQ Tests for adults and children. With a difference in the number of the scores also.
And then there are very different factors for different IQ Tests that (on top of that) change over the times, so that the scores are not always in the same range, which can explain why the same person can have very different scores after a long period of time. I found an interesting passage in Wikipedia which shows also another factor which could explain a different score:
"IQ scores worldwide have been slowly rising at a rate of around three IQ points per decade.. This phenomenon has been named the Flynn effect (aka the "Lynn-Flynn effect") named after Richard Lynn and James R. Flynn. Attempted explanations have included improved nutrition, a trend towards smaller families, better education, greater environmental complexity, and heterosis. Tests are therefore renormalized occasionally to obtain mean scores of 100, for example WISC-R (1974), WISC-III (1991) and WISC-IV (2003). Hence it is difficult to compare IQ scores measured years apart, unless this is compensated for. Also complicating things is the difference between countries, since most tests are adjusted to the country of the test subject. This usually causes differences when some countries have better (more effective) education systems than others. For example, if someone scores 100 on an IQ test in the U.S., they would get 112 in South Africa, 91 in the U.K., 87 in Japan, and 86 in Switzerland, on the exact same test, with the same answers - the average person in those countries would get a different score."
Anyway... my point is that the number given for any IQ Test is always relative and should not be compared with a previous score of another Test.
Also another thing I always wondered about: why would somebody want to be a member of a club (Mensa) that has an archive about the "most intelligent" people of the world. I mean (and maybe I am paranoid, I know) personally I would be afraid to be a part of their files - you never know who would be interested in having acces to them. (my sick mind imagines extreme situations like a fictive german Mensa-Club in WWII, if you know what I mean)?
I agree, this has some fun riddles in it but do not count it as your actual IQ. It might actually be best if you dont count your IQ as your actual IQ. All tests of this nature are bias, but this online test is no where near a real IQ test. I used to test children/adults at a local hospital. Each activity is timed, and there is a strong mixture between visual, fact, and puzzle questions. These were mostly riddles. FUN but don't let it bring you down. (also this test technically allows you to school perfectly, another flaw the real thing wont allow).
