Took an online IQ test.

I remember being IQ tested at Minot State University when I was a little kid, and being told that I had an IQ of 144. I saw an IQ test online, and it didn't look like the typical spammy bullshit, so I gave it a whirl. Ten minutes later, I found out I have an IQ of approximately 162 on the European/Cattel scale, or 141 on the Stanford-Binet/USA scale.

The standard caveats apply: intelligence quotient tests are designed for a Euronormative notion of "intelligence," online tests should be taken with a grain of salt, etc. But it bears out what I remember being told as a kid. I'm glad my years of rocking beyond reality haven't really done much to hurt it.

Also, the test itself says it's pretty useless beyond scores of 160 on the Cattel scale, so I might be smarter than that. Couldn't say.


  1. Geez, this thing is all logic. Normally I score in the gifted range, but didn't do too well on this. It's skewed against people with certain learning disorders.

  2. Not too surprised at your score. I got 119, which is about where I thought I was anyway.
