105. Totally okay with it. Just saying, it’s just a number.

I think it's 134 or something based on an IQ test I took at school for my triennial IEP.

On the Wechsler Test, I have usually scored between 115-120 as an adult.

I once scored 131 on the Wechsler's Test for Children (WISC) when I was 15.

Somewhere between 100-200 8)

I dont really believe in telling people my IQ. People make assumptions. I will say thats its towards the higher end. But I'll leave the rest to your imagination. (i honestly wish mine were lower. i keep taking tests to see if maybe mine is wrong)
I dont really think IQ is something to brag about, honestly. If anything, its worked against me my whole life. And Ive met loads of people with average IQs who are kicking my butt in school. "Intelligent" is different than "smart" in my books. And I know a whole lot of people that are "smarter" than I am.
Besides, who cares about some number? Its what you do in life that should define you. People already think Im smart cause Im Asian. (or they think Im really dumb cause lets be honest- sometimes I am) Im cool with them thinking whatever so long as they still treat me with respect :mrgreen:

125

Why can’t I be gifted like my brother? It’s not fair!

Just kidding! I don’t care anymore. I’m proud of him.

I wonder if IQ tests aren’t as accurate for people with things like ADHD or testing anxiety.

I would expect the highest number one has scored to be a better indicator of ability and potential.

Still have no idea what my IQ is and I'm still not interested in finding out either.

I was never given the result of the official test I did as a 15 year old. Online (with the usual emphasis on the relative unreliability of such tests) Non-verbal 64 average ,Verbal 142 average , Various online Wonderlic type tests using age related bonus https://pumpkinperson.com/2019/01/20/co ... nt-page-1/ 49-23.32/7.5 x15 +100=151 or https://pumpkinperson.com/2019/01/21/mo ... lic-to-iq/ 49-21.75/7.6 x15 +100 = 154.

So basically I'm either really intelligent or really stupid. Take your pick. One thing I will say is that I don't have much common sense.

Hey this is kinda random but I just thought of it and now Im curious

IQ tests are often based on timing too right? Like how fast/how many questions you can answer?
Well what about the people with ADD or dyslexia or whatnot that are like the kids that get extended test times and such. Theyd probably be slower and therefor get a lower score right? But isnt that like not very accurate? Cause my good friend has ADD and always got extra test time and shes still like one of the smartest people I know.
And what about the people that are just honestly kinda slow? My brother scored very poorly on the ACT because he could never finish a section. In fact, his reading score was abysmal. But hes by no means not smart! Hes actually quite intelligent. It just takes him longer to think things through.

I got tested around middle school. I think the score was somewhere around 130. Considering the correlations between test performance and the socioeconomic vitality of parents and proximity to urban centers, I'm proud of it because I grew up very poor to parents without high school educations and very rural.

I can tell the test can be prepared for. I've taken online samples from Mensa and others for fun and score around 145 give or take, but of course their weight is not so great. I've thought about making a challenge out of it to really study the cognitive skills that are being examined as a fun hobby to see where I can land with a formal assessment. I struggle the most with "unscramble these letters to make a word" kinds of questions.

While I'm proud of what I can score on them compared to the general population I do not place much faith in their holistic assessment of intelligence. They don't test for social or emotional intelligence which is probably going to impact your prospects adapting in life more strongly than pure logical analysis ability.
