So I’m bored. Which is why I took an IQ test to find just exactly how intelligent I am. I know that IQ tests on the internet aren’t really to be trusted, but hey, anything to boost my ego a bit xD. The IQ test was taken HERE. I actually took this test awhile back, but since I have nothing better to do now, I decided to ‘google’ the average ‘IQ’ and came across some fascinating sites.
According to this site, my IQ falls in the very superior range and that I’m smarter than 99% of people out there. Which leaves me to wonder why I didn’t do so well in the HSC. Maybe it had something to do with my laziness, or maybe it’s just that IQ is, at best, a rough measure of academic intelligence. It certainly would be unscientific to say that an individual with an IQ of 110 is of high average intelligence, while an individual with an IQ of 109 is of only average intelligence. And yes, I did take that from the website I linked to. Because despite my ‘high’ IQ, I can’t seem to put the above ‘extract’ into any better words. Or maybe it’s due to my laziness, once again.
Another site revealed jobs which will match my intelligence, or rather, my IQ score. Apparently, my employment options include “leading math, physics professor”. Which I most certainly won’t become. More like a teacher..? And is, according to the first site, more suited for an IQ of 120-ish. But gah, who cares. I don’t even know what I want to do anyway.
And just for the record, my IQ is 139. Is that anything to be proud of? I know the average IQ is 100, but with kids nowadays, it seems the average is going to be shooting upwards.
