Test seems accurate enough for me at least. Got 133 on it which is around the 130-135 range I got when I was tested by a psychologist. Though this test is probably not very good since I remember the real test I took had a lot more sections, some relating to memory or verbal skills.>>170225
It's really easy to assume that everyone around you is as smart as you. I always think most people I talk to are at or above my intelligence level. The truth is in most cases it's not apparent how smart someone is until you begin to discuss something with them. People who are dumb or average don't show it outwardly; they aren't drooling retards.>>170307
Don't underestimate yourself. Linear algebra really is not the hardest math you could learn.>>170376
Terry Davis was a great person. So sad that our society isn't well equipped to take care of the mentally unwell. Don't be too pessimistic about your score though, after all you are smarter than nearly half of the population.>>170382
Practicing IQ tests does tend to increase scores on IQ tests.>>170383
Seems 32 is the only one you haven't gotten a response for.
Answer is A. Symbols combine left to right or up down. Overlapping squares and dots are flipped across the line (vertically). Nonoverlapping squares and dots are removed.>>174008
Social IQ is pretty pop science I'd say. Really the main mental element to social interaction is gaining confidence. Aside from that, I assume social interaction is pretty easy for nearly everyone.>>174165
I'm not so sure about that. It seems that "geek" culture mostly values achievements more than intelligence or money. Like getting a high score on some game or writing some malware that becomes famous. Of course usually these achievements require intelligence to get, because if they didn't they wouldn't really be rare.>>174396
Like most things, practice helps. Whenever you feel like you have a thought that you want to write down, just start writing it down. If you find yourself stuck on words, think about why you are stuck, and whether it's because you don't know the correct word or if it's because you don't fully understand your own idea.>>174456
Keep in mind the average intelligence of college students is higher than the general population. Don't be too stressed out if you perform worse than your peers.>>174797
The field of psychology: full of data that is difficult to measure, difficult to reproduce, and difficult to interpret. I personally don't trust most life advice or drugs from that field.
Useless or harmful treatments are easy to detect in other fields of medicine, "You said this lotion would cure my acne, but instead it gave me a rash!"
But in psychology it's far too difficult to know.
