    The real IQ test is based on whether or not people actually think their score on this test has anything to do with intellect. Someone extremely dumb could easily answer every question except maybe #5, while someone extremely intelligent could easily miss the majority of questions. This is just trivia, not an IQ test.

    I think you need to look up the definition of trivia. What is trivial about question 2? Or 5? Or 8, 9, or 10?

    Yeah, they can't figure how to use soap or toothbrushes.

    Specially the soviets. Tal's better half complained he couldn't do up a hot water bottle.

    I don't want to know my IQ what good will do for me?

    if I'm 200 I can go and be pleased with that

    but if i'm 40 I can go and be sad about that

    I only missed number 5, since I looked at it and immediately thought it to be the fibonacci sequence, but I seriously doubt that these questions are in the same league as those delivered to Kasparov.

    I dont think chess players have very high IQ. Most of them dont

    In my humble research, I have found that IM's display a wider array of talents than GM's. I wouldn't make it a rule, but it seems that longstanding IM's display a higher verbal IQ than those who became GM's early in life.

    After all, it's the verbal IQ that makes you social and capable of attracting success to your life.

    Addendum: The GM's are obviously superior on visual IQ tests, according to my same...hmm...humble research.

    Here were my answers. The inncorrect answers are highlighted in bold text.

    1. Whale
    2. 90 - 93
    3. Hermes
    4. Optics
    5. 39
    6. Aristotle
    7. Washington
    8. 144
    9. J
    10. 22

    So I got 8/10. According to the chart that would put my IQ at around 142. I honestly doubt this is accurate. But regardless of the validity it was a fun test to take.

    Below were the reasons for each of my answers.

    1. "Whale" was the only mammal. All the other animals were fish.
    2. The sequence contined the following pattern: add 3 to previous number, double previous number. So 45 doubled is 90. Then adding 3 to 90 gives 93. Hence the answer "90 - 93".
    3. "Hermes" was the only mythical God that does not have a place in our solar system.
    4. Acoustics is the study of sound. Optics is the study of light. Hence the answer: "optics".
    5. The number sequence contains the following pattern: double the previous number and then add 1, double then add 2, double then add 3, etc. 22 doubled is 44, then subtracting 5 gives "39" hence the answer.
    6. "Aristotile" was a philosopher. All of the other men listed were composers.
    7. "Washington" is a US state, not a city. All of the other items listed are capital cities.
    8. "144" was the only number that did not contain an integer divisible by 3. I can't believe I didn't notice that all of the numbers were square roots except for one. Ouch!
    9. The letters of the alphabet seem to be listed according to the following numerical sequence: forward 1, forward 3, forward 5, forward 7, forward 9. The numbers increment by 2. So the number list is B, E, J, Q, Z with "J" being the missing letter and the answer.
    10. I noticed two corresponding patterns in this number sequence. First off the most obvious pattern is the 1, 2, 3 increment in the first row and 3, 5, 7 in the second. But there is also a more deeply hidden pattern that gives the same answer. Notice that if you add two of the first numbers together you get a corresponding value in the second row. 4 + 6 = 10, 6 + 9 = 15, and 9 + 13 = 22. Both patterns point to "22" being the answer.

    First part is indeed correct, but Rio de Janeiro is not the capital city of Brasil (Americans and their geography skills lol). That's why Rio is the only possible answer and the criteria is indeed of geographical nature (southern vs northern hemisphere).


    That said, this test is incredibly dumb.

    Yeah strange associations. I got 135 with 6 right but English is not my native language. I don't even know what a pike is?>
