this was my guess. i am not even sure that it is correct. probably not.
1st - 07
2nd - 79
3rd - 41
4th - 13
5th - 85

3rd = (1st + 5th) / 2 + 5
3rd = (2nd + 4th) / 2 + 5

8. This is fun but lame, I thought it'd be like, "How many sheep can a sheep farmer shear in 3 hours?" "How many whales are beached annually?"

their legend allows scores that are 146 and higher. i must have gotten something wrong as well. i wonder which one/s

11. Nah, the maximum is 145.

page source gives the answer key and scoring algorithm

12. oh. i got 'a' for 27... i just tracked the blue in the center and skipped the yellow.

13. the score seems inflated

yeah. I've taken harder pattern finding tests. usually I get high 120s to mid 130s.

Scores on every internet IQ test are inflated, everyone seems to get over 140 which is not supposed to happen on a properly administered IQ test.

17. IQ = 133! I think this test is accurate. Go to a business that uses uneducated workers and imagine having the staff take the test. Their tests would be very low. We are obviously not idiots here. We are all deep thinking people with an interest in a puzzle like system of Russian psychology. We are a different crowd than, let us say, the work staff at a fast food establishment, or assembly workers at an outsource plastic thermoforming shop that makes the toolboxes for fire trucks.

Uh, I used to work at a place that made plastic toolboxes for fire trucks. I was surrounded my literal morons at that place. We are not dumb people here. They, at my former place of work, are dumb people. That is your real IQs everybody. The score of 133 is very close to what my ACT and ASVAB tests would indicate.

I presently work at an Art Museum. Everybody has a bachelor’s degree, even in security. Most are seeking masters and doctorate degrees. One of our guards has a master’s degree from Harvard, another went to Pepperdine, a third went to Hampshire College, a fourth left the museum to get a master's at Sotheby’s in London, a fifth went to Oberlin College, a sixth is entering his PhD program (that is me) and so on. I basically work with graduate students. Thus, in our little hangout, most of the guards think that we are average -- BUT THEY NEVER MADE PLASTIC TOOLBOXES FOR FUCKING FIRETRUCKS. I did. I know what real morons look like.

We on this forum are very similar to the Museum staff. We are a bunch of geniuses. We are not around genuine dipshits. We can sometimes lose sight of that.

18. Not going to bother taking this test, since I know its worthless. It's common knowledge that online IQ tests are highly inflated to make test takers feel better about themselves. If everyone is getting 130 to 140, you know something is wrong with the test.

Edit: I decided to take the test, it was pretty easy, I got 139. I don't think I'm that smart haha. The test is obviously rigged.

19. Mhmh. I think the best IQ test is the one based on Raven's Progressive Matrices.

20. 129 muthafuckas.

21. 137 Whoops, missed a question.

139 Whoops, missed two more.

143 And another...

145

The colour-pattern things in this test are kind of similar, but they seem to all be easy ones.

The current IQ test in vogue with psychologists is some crazy culture fair thing which involves really bizarre answers and actually requires a kit of stuff rather than just a paper. It has to be administered one-on-one and takes hours. One exampleof a question is that they show you a picture and ask you what's wrong with it... turns out that there's no snow on the roof in a snowy day scene. This was apparently the Australian edition My friend wouldn't let me see more than that in case I get a head injury later in life and it's actually necessary to measure my IQ

23. I got 141. That seems too high to be accurate.

24. thinking more about this i dont think iq tests should be a part of an ideal society

25. I assume this test was made so people would feel better about themselves

141

26. 143.. yeah right

27. I got them all right. I think one issue is that a lot of the questions are actually the same question.

28. Is 25 a good score? Because that's what I got.
