Have you taken IQ test?

WHat's your score? DO you think if you take it again, your score would be higher now compared to the last time you took? I forgot when i took an IQ test. I do not know if this is stil relevant today. It seems like people/companies are more concerned on person's EQ (emotional quotient) than of his Intelligence quotient. Is it really true that those with higher IQ tend to have lower EQ? What's your say on this? DO you think both EQ and IQ of a person could change?

I have taken the IQ test in multiple forms in the past. I have played around with the online versions and have had the proper tests conducted by a Professional that took several hours. I have had to do EQ tests as part of an employment process on a number of ocaasions too. I am not aware of the lower EQ/Higher IQ scenario to be honest but I can see how this may be possible. Yes, I do think that both the IQ AND EQ of a person could change with the right mental exercises and learning approach. (Maybe not dramatically change but change, yes). You didn't share your won IQ pinkytabor so I will hold onto my own for now also!

I forgot my IQ rating. The last time i took it was about 17 years ago. I am working on having a good EQ rating. I want to take that test but i just don't know how. I do need to work on my EQ (lol).

I think IQ tests are flawed in the sense that a high IQ does not equal being smart in all areas. So I'm sure many with high IQs do not have high EQs, just like they are not all smart in every area of learning. I wouldn't say the high IQ/low EQ is a rule though. I have only taken one professionally done IQ test. It was back in elementary school and I had the "privelege" of being the highest scorer ever in the history of the school (my record still stands last I knew). I do kbnow that the common thopught is that IQ actually lowers with age. I don't know the specifics of that though. My IQ then was somewhere above 165 (the highest they could gauge with the tests they typically brought for schools) I have taken online tests since then and have scored anywhere from 150 to "over 165". Apparently anything over 165 is just considered really high and exact numbers aren't calculated.

Back when i was 12 i remembered seeing "exceptional" rating of an entrance test i took in high school. I do not know if it was IQ test, but i know for sure that it wasn't that reliable. I was ranked 42nd out of 72 during high school graduation. Or perhaps my EQ has got to do with it.

I was hugely into this IQ tests. I would go online or go for any that would come in my way. I just loved to do it. It gave me confidence and I knew the meanings of various reasonings. Nowadays,I think with the coming of EQ, the IQ tests have decreased. But EQ is a great thing as well and think very pertinent. Thanks.

yes i think that IQ test is not so relevant today because that is just one aspect of your personality..what is important is how well rounded you are as a human being and flexible enough to adjust to various working environments..and yes EQ is more of value today...i just went out and test my IQ i only scored 98...whic was lower than when i took it like 5 years ago.

THE EQ contain a lot!so it's difficult to answer you! But i have a friend who are alway scored highest in his class and he is with higher EQ! So I agree that a person can take both HIGH IQ and EQ!
