30,000 words. Most likely below average which is to be expected from people like us.
It's over 9000!
I call myself batyote and I fight crime at night.
20,800. I tried to err on the side of caution w/ those words that bring up certain images or ideas but I wasn't totally sure about. I think this is kind of a bad test for that reason...sometimes I've thought I've known the meaning of a word but was wrong.
I am fine with this result. I know how to use a thesaurus and a dictionary. I have been trying to pay more attention to repeating some words over and over in all my posts. Especially "I guess", "like" and "though".

This is the estimated number of entries in a standard dictionary for which you know at least one definition.
Thanks for taking the test! Based on participations so far, we've already got some decent statistics. Most native English adult speakers who have taken the test fall in the range 20,000–35,000 words. Click here for a full breakdown by age (opens in new tab/window).
And for foreign learners of English, we've found that the most common vocabulary size is from 2,500–9,000 words. Click here for the full distribution (opens in new tab/window).
However, we still need more data for complete analysis by age or education level, especially for participants under 15.

Edit: what also makes these estimations hard is that i can't necessarily give a definition to any given word, but when i'm in the midst of conversation i find i can use words i had either forgotten or didn't realize i knew. It's more like my vocabulary is more contextual.
Edit2: retook it and paid more attention to whether i could give specific definitions or not and got 26,400 so... not that big of a difference. Whatever.
31400 much smaller than I thought
Dual type (as per tcaudilllg)
Enneagram 2w1sw(1w9) helps others to live up to their own standards of what a good person is and is very behind the scenes in the process.

I'm constantly looking to align the real with the ideal.I've been more oriented toward being overly idealistic by expecting the real to match the ideal. My thinking side is dominent. The result is that sometimes I can be overly impersonal or self-centered in my approach, not being understanding of others in the process and simply thinking "you should do this" or "everyone should follor this rule"..."regardless of how they feel or where they're coming from"which just isn't a good attitude to have. It is a way, though, to give oneself an artificial sense of self-justification. LSE
Best description of functions:
Taking this initially compelled me to expand my vocabulary, but, outside of telling people my vocabulary count or passive aggressively belittling someone by using words that they aren't likely to know, I can't think of a practical reason to do so lol. If I don't know a word, it's probably because I have never heard it, which means it is unlikely that I will ever have a use for it lol
83% on contra's test.

This test is kind of dumb because the harder words it asks about are words often used in fiction, especially older fiction, which I don't read. I prefer to read non-fiction anyway, and if I do read fiction it's never from the 19th century or before and tends to be very recent.
Knowing some antiquated words that are not used in conversation and are barely even used in academia is kinda pointless.
Your thoughts are almost entirely contingent on your specific experience. Why be so attached to them?
19900, I am impressed..
Sylvia Plath — 'I desire the things which will destroy me in the end.'
21,600...seems about right.
the last row was like it was just making up gibberish
(and 84% on the other one)
"You said yes to 89% of the existing words.
You said yes to 0% of the nonwords.
This gives you a corrected score of 89% - 0% = 89%."
Am I the only one that took this and thought, "wtf is with all the pirate words?" Lol

And high IQ people are better equipped to adapt; it's easier to dumb yourself down than to emulate people that are above your level of intelligence. Even average IQ people are likely to have only a vague recollection of their milieu's linguistic palette, and hence stumble over some basic constructs when put on the spot, something which rarely happens to people with high verbal IQs that aren't on the autism spectrum.
Well, I would agree that intelligence relates to adaptability, but not necessarily I.Q.
Portions of I.Q. tests use Ne/Ti, which are the most common stereotypes of I.Q. and I.Q. test questions. You have portions that are Visual-Spatial, which is most likely Si/Te. The Verbal portions, if present, are most likely Fi/Ne, or at least I am inclined to think that communication skills are Fi/Ne. The verbal intelligence tests are spoken by administrators. From what I can recall, my Verbal was the lowest on my original I.Q. test, but I was partially deaf at the time (test actually lead to hearing/speech treatments) and had to use visual/emotional cues to attempt to comprehend what was being asked when I couldn't hear. Later on my behaviors inversed once hearing was corrected.
I don't think I've ever met an intelligent person who seemed like they would score low on an IQ test, although that judgment is likely colored by confirmation bias. But theoretically, assuming no legitimate extenuating circumstances, how can someone with a severely limited vocabulary and capacity for abstract reasoning, poor long-term memory, poor spatial skills and meager fluid intelligence be considered objectively intelligent?
I think I'm good at identifying savants; e.g. Kanye West is musically talented and occasionally says things that are 'deep' and 'insightful', but I consider him to be of average intelligence at best. High IQ people rarely chimp out the way he does.
