What is your iq? I had a non official iq test some months ago and scored 110 but I believe I can do better. I spent a long time on the 1st question and suddenly my brain started to figure things out, but yea the test was timed :(

Think your smarter than me?

Online IQ tests are notorious for skewing towards higher scores, even when things like the Flynn effect are accounted for. It's more of an ego boost and something you can post for the benefit of your social standing among your online friends ("see, look how smart I am!")

I looked it up, and MENSA only takes proctored exams for entrance qualifications - someone has to keep an eye on you to make sure you didn't bring in a phone or answer key, little things like that. On top of that, they are looking for IQs above 120...but from what I understand, MENSA, for some people, is an ego booster club that serves the same purpose as the 145 you totally got on that online test.

I didnt do a test online. It was offline in the real world, 40 patterns to be solved in 40 minutes and all i had was an ink pen. But yea online tests are stupid. Also I think to join mensa you need 132 or more. 120 is probably for the less fancy high iq society.

High iq may be an ego booster, but that doesnt mean its worthless. Iq is supposed to be an indicator how fast you can learn new stuff, not how much you know.

That's true to at least a first approximation, but the details are quite nebulous. What gets measured varies to a certain degree from test to test and is likely a composite of many factors.
