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.
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?>
for question 10 an alternative way is :
nevermind kenbrace found it already :-)
It's either a fish, a weapon or a road.
9/10..... i hate you whale xd
the test is fun but a bit light to get to conclusions.
in terms of the tactics trainer :
if i solve all 10 within 30 seconds purely by writing immediately down my first guess praying for success, am i a genius if by chance i got them all ?
All the ones I actually answered were right. Not sure this is accurate though...
The first could be Salmon to in that its the only where it can reside in both fresh and salt water where as the other generally don't except in rare case
21 is a better answer than 22 for the last problem #10.
Look at the numbers
4, 6, 9, 13 7, 10, 15, ??
9 = 2 * 4 + 1
13 = 2 * 6 + 1
15 = 2 * 7 + 1
See the pattern
The number for the Ith index =(2 * [number for (Ith -2) Index]) + 1
Therefore the last one is
2 * 10 + 1 = 21
This test measures actual knowledge, which shouldn't have anything to do with IQ.
Of the 10 questions 4 were sequences to see if you see the pattern that weren't really dependent on knowledge with the possible exeption of the question that asked "B,E,?,Q,Z " but in that case I all have to know is the order of the alphabet starting with letter A so that is very minimal knowledge.
Question two is 30, 33, not 90, 93.
Incorroect. It is 90, 93
The pattern is that to get an odd index you multiple by 2 the previous number. To get an even index you add 3 to the previous number
So therefore the ??? after 45 is index 7 which is odd so you multiple 45 with 2 and you get 90. The next index 8 which is even so you add 3 to the 90 and get 93.
I can never figure those things out. I'm probably retarded.
I think I know (maybe) why Kasparov didn't get a perfect score. He's smarter than the testers!
#3 could be Venus. She is the only female, all the others are males. Also, Hermes is actually the Greek name for the planet Mercury.
#7 could be Washington. All the other locations are cities and Washington D.C. is not a city, it's a federal district. Although technically Berlin is a city-state.
I got 21 for #10. If the pattern of increments between the respective top and bottom numbers is 3,4, then doubles to 6,8.
I got 35 for #5. Since the fibonacci sequence breaks down, I saw it as two groups of three numbers. Group 1 (3,5,8) follows fibonacci so I restarted fibonacci with the second group (13,22,35).
I think the only real IQ questions are 2,5,8,9,10. 4 would be an IQ test if it were multiple choice. As is, it's a vocabulary question.
are you joking it was extremely easy test...........................
plus , some of the answers are wrong
