160 ??  I did guess at a few as my brain was starting to hurt.

130 -- pretty much what I tested at in school . . . . . . .
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

180 - I overachieved on this one.

You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile- You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife-
You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?

170. Had to go "I don't know" on a few. Maybe that was the right answer.
It's higher than the last time I took an IQ test. Odd, because I was sure I'd killed off brain cells since then.

It has to be a reverse test. The higher your score the worse off you are.

I have taken others in the past that scored me at about 120.  I have never scored over 130 until this test.

Now, if I could only find a Free Credit Score check test that would give me the same kind of results.

I was clueless on the 9 symbols where you had to say what belonged in the lower left and completing the trend on the two letter sequences. 

Another one I struggled with, but believe I got correct, was the stacked sheets of paper.

It is interesting to keep in mind that an IQ test measures your ability to take that specific IQ test . . . . there is, on a good day, correlation to other things, but far from one-to-one . . . ..
We had two bags of grass, 75 pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of cocaine, a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laughers... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether, and two dozen amyls. Not that we needed all that for the trip, but once you get locked into a serious drug collection, the tendency is to push it as far as you can.

Knock at least 20% off your score and then you might have something more reasonable.  There is no way there are that many 180s on this forum.  :o

150

Fairly consistent from what I remember back in grade school. pattern recognition is strong, grid-theory is weak. I obviously avoid Sudoku.

I wonder if a few of the 'I Don't Know's actually don't have an appropriate solution...

Ding!

Even if the average forum user is 1 SD above the mean, these numbers (virtually everyone over 135, which is 2 SD from mean) are not within reason.
