What is an IQ? It stands for Intelligence Quotient. It comes from standardized tests that are made up to assess human intelligence. The highest IQ is 145 and the lowest is 61. They say Einstein's IQ was between 165 and 200. Around two-thirds of people have an IQ between 85 and 115. About 5% score higher than 125, and about 5% score below 75. IQ tests are developed to measure reasoning ability. There are several components and three main factors. There is performance, crystallized, and fluid intelligence. ( I won't go into all of that here). An average score would be 100 although tests are designed differently in different countries and there are different criteria for what a normal score would be. Tests vary and scores vary. What do you think your IQ might be? Me? I think mine is in the 100-125 range.

All of those are good scores. I wish I knew more about the test.

@celticeagle My husband IQ, when they tested him, was above 165, in fact they wanted to send him to special classes, he refused.

@celticeagle Glad to hear that but I think most people have the similar scores but some study harder and it may make a difference.

I would say around 100 since it takes me a while to grab ideas in my mindset.

I took an IQ test in high school and scored a 127. Now it depends, it's around a 95 b.c. and 145 a.c., b.c. being "before chocolate" and a.c. being "after chocolate". My neighbor keeps telling me that I'm smart...there are days I doubt it.

I took one once and got a score of 134. My husband at the time believed the score. Thought I was smart that day.

I'd like to take an IQ test, just out of curiosity. I think mine is at least average- 100 or higher.
