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.
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.
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.
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.
"Washington" is a US state, not a city. All of the other items listed are capital cities.
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?>
