Assing my IQ is good why?
And that's terrible.

Internet IQ tests annoy me a lot. They invariably make me score low, whereas non-internet IQ tests make me score high. Although I do rather think I may have lost ten or twenty IQ points since starting uni. I can feel them spilling out of my brain.

Seriously though, I have six of these and can't possibly imagine what the others might be. And I can't even satisfy my curiosity by looking at the answers because they're not there. Stupid tests.

With such a sarcastic thread title, I thought this would at least be a slightly unusual test. You know, as opposed to one we've all seen online countless times before.

Also, anything that requires you to know computing terms in order to be a genius is idiotic. And anything goes straight from "you weren't trying" to "you could score 120 on an IQ test" is incredibly dumb. These things just want to massage egos.

Perhaps this has some sort of "joke" response if you bother to get past a certain number. It seems like it might.

That's not to say these things aren't enjoyable. But people really shouldn't take them seriously at all.

EDIT: My first guess on these things is nearly always time-related. Days, seconds, minutes, months, hours, weeks. A lot of them are about that, but it's really distracting for the other ones. Well, the ones which I presume are other.

I got a friend to help, we've spent and hour on it, and we're up to 14, but utterly stumped beyond that. Also, it is definitely culturally biased, if you're wondering.

I neither want my IQ assed nor assessed. For much the same reasons evinced by Sir Jamesalot.

But I already know my IQ. Or, at least, the level it is above.

So you can breathe. Well that's good.


How would knowledge of sayings and things of that nature have anything to do with your IQ?

Well the ability to extrapolate the rest of the phrases shows mental capability, although it seems as much imaginative as analytical. Then again, there's no real reason that shouldn't be taken into account. But it's very dependent on certain knowledge, a lot of which is neither universal nor especially useful, and therefore a poor indicator of intelligent. Can anyone honestly say that people who don't know about binary or screen resolutions are less intelligent than those who do, for the very reason that they don't? That's entirely absurd.

Who's seen the South Park episode The List? Does anyone get the feeling IQ tests are kind of like that, but with geeks instead of attractive people?

I thought the test was moronic. But I just liked the fact that it's supposedly a legitimate way of testing your IQ, and they can't even spell "assess" right.

Also, James, when I posted that Notmensa test last year for humor reasons, I got one response, and it was not from you. So you don't appreciate my humorous tests, you bastard.

I don't remember it, but it probably wasn't funny. I'm not saying you should post joke tests. I'm saying the title of this thread lead me to believe you had.

But at least you agree that it's dumb.

Okay. I got them all. That was entirely moronic. Answers are below, if anyone's interested:


5 parts of intelligence tests (oh. self-referential humor. how amusing.)
10 is 2 in binary
xbox 360 (lame)
800x600 screen resolution (just as lame)
ali baba and the 40 thieves (thank you, beastie boys!)
6 zeros in a million (I got so angry - I kept spelling it "zeroes". why don't they accept both? argh.)
22 players on a football field
54 squares on a rubik's cube
21 dots on a standard die
4 weeks in a month
the 9 muses (that one took me forever. I couldn't get the thought of the supreme court justices out of my head)
12 disciples of jesus
the distance to alpha centauri is approximately 4 light years (not about, not around, not above.)
122 spaces in a chinese checkers board
9/11 attacks
jupiter has 62 moons
4 legs on a table (not tiger. although I'd think there's more tigers with 4 legs than tables. Tigers with fewer than 4 legs don't last very long.)
2 blades on a pair of scissors
9 circles of hell in dante's inferno
7 letters in the word letters (ooh. more self-reference. still not funny. or clever.)

I saw that episode. I haven't ever looked at an IQ test.
