Light IQ test

Thanks to Pixie for sending this to me — there is a free test at that consists of thirty-eight questions. My score was 128, which is slightly above average. While I realize no online test is a true IQ test, the results seem to be in line with the results of my MENSA online quiz. I wish the test had a breakdown of what I got right versus what I got wrong; I’m willing to bet I missed almost all of the geometry questions and some of the mathematics questions. The language-based questions seemed very easy to me.

Like the MENSA test, you are not supposed to use anything other than your mind to answer the questions. Some of you used pen and paper, tea leaves, or whatever the fuck to get higher results. Just imagine the letters and numbers in your head this time, okay?

Warning: the test will require an email address for your results. If this skeeves you out, make a new disposable address, or use a spam-address. The site will also try to get you to buy personalized “intelligence analysis” results for $10. You don’t need to buy anything to get your results. I took this screenshot to show you what NOT to click.

    I got a 144 but didn’t feel like taking the mensa one so early in the morning 🙂

    I guessed on several where I figured that no matter how long I looked at them, I wouldn’t get them right. I mean how often do “congruent hexagons” come up in normal life?

    I used no props (as long as fingers don’t count). I was sure I was going to get an 82 or something.

    WordPress doesn’t like me. It doesn’t want to allow me to edit my comment. I wanted to fix the first sentence so it’s actually a complete thought. My error is below.

    WordPress database error: [You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ” at line 1]
    SELECT comment_content, comment_author_IP, comment_date_gmt FROM wp_comments WHERE comment_ID =

    You aren’t allowed to edit this comment, either because you didn’t write it or you passed the 30 minute time limit.

    Odd, I was able to edit your comment. I’ll take a look at it later, were you able to edit your comment in spite of the SQL error?

    17,34,51,68,85,102,119…the next number in this sequence is? my score!

    Whenever I tried to edit the comment, it threw back the error (I tried twice). But the comment now has the edit, but that may be you (drfaulken) reading my mind.
