Which one is longer?
All the same.
How did you know that? You've seen it before, that's how.
That's why all IQ tests are a complete joke, they depend only on what you've seen before. They're a decent method of splitting kids into different classes, that's what they were originally designed for and that's all they can do. People who treat IQ as some kind of magical number are ironically very stupid.
I never saw those images before and I could easily tell they were all the same length.
^^ I've never heard of the planet hermes, though if thats some weird alter ego for mercury im not doubting.. but pluto has only recently been considered not a planet (and im not sure thats fact yet is it? i dont follow anything nasa has to say after I reading "Dark Mission" Secrets of NASA)
In any case, I think the test was referring to the mythical dude, or whatever. I actually dont erally know who hermes is except that it makes me think of zeus and all that crap I should still remember but do not.
Some people have thought that there is another earth-like planet in our orbit but on the other side of the sun. I wonder if people there are miserable too.
We would be able to detect it, since we don't have a perfectly circular orbit.
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?
I dont think chess players have very high IQ. Most of them dont
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.
My IQ is 160+
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.
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.
